Huawei, a leading global information and communications solutions provider and Tropo, the leader in real-time telco APIs, today announced a partnership that will see China Telecom Fujian offer a range of Communications as a Service (CaaS) applications to small and medium enterprises in China for the first time. China Telecom Fujian is the first telecommunications company to offer the Tropo API in China.
The new partnership allows enterprises in China to leverage China Telecom’s IMS network, and enables SMEs to have direct access to cloud-based communications services and enjoy the economies of scale afforded by the China Telecom Fujian network. It also extends telco-grade communication capabilities to the large base of SMEs in China, accelerating innovation while significantly reducing the cost of service and dramatically enhancing flexibility and user experience.
