Esna Technologies (Esna), a leader in cloud-enabled communication and collaboration solutions, today announced that TMC, a global, integrated media company, has honored the company’s Cloudlink 3.0 for Cisco unified communications and collaboration software as a 2013 TMC Labs Innovation Award winner presented by INTERNET TELEPHONY magazine.

“Our Cloudlink software continues to be recognized for excellence and innovation in unified communications by customers and media alike,” said Lee Ho, VP Marketing for Esna. “Cloudlink enables people to collaborate more effectively by providing access to real-time communication services inside the productivity applications they use daily.”

Esna Cloudlink delivers unified communication and collaboration capabilities as pure web services that can seamlessly connect Cisco collaboration solutions with cloud applications like Google Enterprise, VMware Zimbra and Jive. With Cloudlink, companies have ubiquitous access to live communication services from any device. Cloudlink integrates with Cisco’s Unity Connection, Unified Communications Manager and WebEx. Cloudlink is available through the Cisco SolutionsPlus program, which allows customers to purchase select products and applications from third parties like Esna from Cisco.

"Using Esna's Cloudlink to connect our Cisco telephony system to Google Apps is helping us to achieve our goal of reducing our IT costs while increasing on-campus collaboration with unified communications," said Emily Harris, Director of Network & Systems for Vassar College. "We wanted to build on top of our current Cisco foundation and our confidence in Esna's tight integration with Cisco was one of the reasons we chose them."

“Esna has displayed its commitment to quality and innovation in the development of the unified communications industry,” said Tom Keating, CTO and TMC Labs Executive Editorial Director at TMC. “I look forward to more innovation from Esna and continued effort toward improving the future of the UC industry.”

“We’re pleased to bestow Esna with a Unified Communications TMC Labs Innovation Award,” stated Rich Tehrani, TMC CEO. “Cloudlink has shown true innovation and is deserving of this recognition.”
