Cisco and Vsys to develop advanced unified communications services for Latin American companies news
07 September 2009

At Networkers Mexico 2009, Cisco today said that it would work with Vsys to develop a technological platform that will allow mid-size and small companies to enjoy the benefits of Cisco's unified communications in the same way as large corporations and enable them to increase collaboration and productivity.

The goal of this collaboration is to help organisations overcome adoption barriers of information technology business solutions by offering Cisco unified communications as a service.

Enabled by Cisco technology, Vsys provides unified IP telephony, unified messaging, personal communication, voice and web collaboration, and mobile convergence to companies through a monthly rent on a per-user basis. With this model, companies avoid upfront investments, deploy solutions developed by highly trained experts, and avoid the costs and challenges associated with operating the systems and solutions.

Companies of all sizes are adopting managed services or IT solutions from virtual service providers as a service to gain competitive advantages in a rapidly changing business environment, said a press release from the company.

Managed services are one of the most effective methods for companies to reduce IT costs while gaining access to innovative network technologies that can establish a competitive advantage. The service provider manages and administers the network equipment and applications, reducing hardware and operational costs for the client, the release added.

Managed services also eliminate the risk that the company will need to make a large capital expenditure to accommodate unplanned business changes, such as increased bandwidth or performance requirements.
