Cambridge, Mass. (PRWEB) April 11, 2011
Enterprise cloud communications service provider Thinking Phone Networks today announced it has joined the Juniper Networks Partner program. Thinking Phone Networks is pleased to work with Juniper Networks to deliver cloud-based unified communications services including voice, video, and mobility to enterprises seeking to improve collaboration and efficiency throughout their organizations.
Recently named a “Visionary” by leading analyst firm Gartner, Inc., Thinking Phone Networks’ innovative ThinkingSuite cloud ecosystem is the first to combine a powerful analytics engine and application integration with comprehensive unified communications capabilities on a single hosted platform.
Joining Juniper Networks networking infrastructure with ThinkingSuite unified communications services allows companies to leverage industry leading communications capabilities without the capital required to completely refresh their systems and infrastructure. Thinking Phone Networks and Juniper Networks’ goal is to provide customers with a dynamic network platform that provides more control with significantly lower upfront capital and ongoing service costs. As companies look to balance the need to control costs and provide enterprise scale services, a cloud-based unified communications solution can lower capital costs by as much as 65% and operational expenses by as much as 30% compared to a legacy premises-based deployment.
Many companies are currently using communications systems that are unable to provide real business value beyond simple telecommunications capability. Thinking Phone Networks “communications-enables” a range of previously standalone applications to give knowledge workers the tools to collaborate better, bring productivity to new levels, and drive dramatic process efficiencies at lower costs.
“Enterprise customers are demanding a new and more efficient way to communicate,” said Frank Vitagliano, senior vice president of America’s Partners, Juniper Networks. "A reliable network is critical as a paradigm shift is currently underway in the world of enterprise communications. Unified cloud communications solutions are offering customers a more flexible and cost effective way to communicate globally."
“We are excited to partner with Juniper Networks to bring the best possible communications and collaboration experiences to our enterprise customers,” said Steve Kokinos, Thinking Phone Networks CEO. “As organizations incorporate video conferencing and mobile communications into their day-to-day interactions and workflows, the quality of the underlying network has a significant impact on the entire experience. Our strategy of delivering best-in-class unified communications applications is in perfect alignment with Juniper Networks’ Partner program.”
Wainhouse Research expects cloud/hosted unified communications services revenue to exceed $6.2B by 2014 with a CAGR of 107.1%. Juniper Networks and Thinking Phone Networks as early market leaders expect to exceed the annual growth rate of the cloud-based unified communications sector.
