Onecom announces another strand to its strategic partnership with Vodafone, with a five-year agreement to add market leading Vodafone Software Defined Networking Solutions to its OneCloud Managed Service Platform.
Onecom, leading business telecoms and cloud communications provider, has strengthened its strategic partnership with Vodafone with the addition of SIP and SD-WAN connectivity to its market leading OneCloud Platform.
The OneCloud platform (formerly known as the Olive CMSP) has been developed over the past three years to provide a one-stop cloud aggregation point that enables customers to consume services from multiple providers in a single secure portal.
Hosted on Google Cloud Platform, OneCloud is pre-connected into leading unified communication and customer experience platforms including Microsoft Azure and Google AI. Once connected, customers are able to migrate to the cloud at their own pace, with cost efficiency and agility that empowers remote and flexible working simply and quickly.
OneCloud offers a single pane of glass management capability, with monitoring and intelligent integration via a portal that affords customers simplicity, security but also unparalleled choice.
Customers can connect to cloud services from multiple providers including Mitel, Microsoft, Virtual 1, Gamma, Google Cloud and others, to deliver telephony, omni-channel contact centre functionality, and more recently artificial intelligence (AI) and Microsoft Teams with Enterprise Voice integration, all in one simple system.
The new five-year agreement with Vodafone enables its SIP and SD-WAN services to work seamlessly within OneCloud, alongside existing Mobility solutions, further strengthening the relationship between Vodafone and Onecom as the first and only UK partner to provide the interconnection. Onecom has been Vodafone’s Strategic Partner of the Year for the past 11 years, and due to its recent acquisition of Olive is also now Vodafone’s leading Innovation Partner.
Onecom Group CEO, Martin Flick said: “Vodafone and Onecom have developed an unrivalled partnership, managing more than 500,000 corporate citizens and mobile users between us, and our combined capabilities beyond just mobility have continued to expand into a much broader portfolio of services.
“Due to COVID 19 we have seen the demand for flexible, remote and secure working increase, along with the need to pivot more traditional infrastructure quickly to meet rapidly changing customer demand. This new element to our partnership with Vodafone really brings together our combined expertise and experience like never before.
“Our OneCloud platform is a game changer and aligns Vodafone non-mobile portfolio alongside already established partnerships with Mitel, Gamma, Virtual1 and Microsoft into a single operating model.
“Customers can now move their traditional telephony and contact centre services into the cloud and combine them with collaboration platforms like Microsoft Teams, enabling seamless remote, home and mobile working quickly, efficiently and more cost effectively than previously seen.”
Vodafone Head of Strategic Partners, Sylvia Chind, said: “Onecom has shown true resilience in what has been a challenging year for everyone, supporting our mutual customers through the pandemic. Through the recent acquisition of Olive Onecom has accelerated its product development strategy to meet the rapidly changing needs of UK businesses. We are delighted to be extending our partnership to deliver such innovative cloud-based services with our best of breed SIP and SD-WAN connectivity at its core.”
