BT & Cisco Cloud Mates

BT and Cisco said Wednesday that they are launching a global cloud-based IP telephony service as part of BT's Onevoice UCC portfolio, starting in the UK. BT is building out the underlying virtualized infrastructure. It will be the first global offering based on Cisco's Hosted UC services as the platform for collaborative voice communications. Cisco said that companies that are tightly managing their capital expenditure will be able to step into converged communications "by consuming their IP telephony, voicemail, conferencing and unified messaging technologies on a utility-based, per-user pricing model." BT will move into EMEA and the US next year followed by Asia-Pacific.
