The agreement enables Vodafone’s SIP and SD-WAN offerings to work seamlessly with Onecom’s OneCloud
Onecom has strengthened its existing partnership with Vodafone, with a fresh five-year deal to boost its OneCloud managed service platform.
The agreement will see Onecom add Vodafone’s SIP and SD-WAN (software-defined networking in a wide area network) connectivity to its cloud offering.
Prior to Onecom’s recent acquisition of Olive Communications, the platform was previously known as Olive CMSP.
This platform has been developed over the past three years and provides users with a one-stop cloud aggregation point that allows customers to use services from a range of providers via a single secure portal.
It’s hosted on Google Cloud Platform, with customers able to connect to cloud services from multiple providers including Mitel, Microsoft, Virtual 1, Gamma and many more.
While there customers are then able to deliver telephony, omni-channel contact centre functionality and AI and Microsoft Teams all in one system at a more cost-effective price.
The agreement allows for Vodafone’s SIP and SD-WAN services to work within OneCloud alongside existing mobility solutions.
It also highlights the partnership between Vodafone and Onecom, as the dealer has become the first and only UK partner to provide the interconnection.
Onecom Group CEO Martin Flick has called the new partnership between Vodafone and Onecom “unrivalled”.
“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.
“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 added: “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.”
