Deltapath, HKBN Partnership, to Give a Thrust to UCaaS

July 11, 2014

Looking to free themselves from the shackles of legacy systems, avoid capital expenditure loss, save on international roaming costs and cater to mobility and BYOD policies, enterprises are now looking to unified communications (UC) in the cloud for reprieve. Deltapath and HKBN have struck a deal to provide them with a full suite of cloud solutions in UC.

“With the joint seamless unified communication service provided by Deltapath and HKBN, you and your employees can be reached anywhere, anytime at the office or overseas through just one number, and save your international roaming expenses,” said William Yeung, CEO and co-owner of HKBN.

Gone are the days when large enterprises and carriers showed off their UC solutions, much to the chagrin of small and medium sized businesses (SMEs). The Deltapath frSIP UC platform with integrated business applications, which has now merged seamlessly with the HKBN broadband network, has leveled the playing field for enterprises, regardless of their size.

The frSIP UC Platform handles video, video messaging, text messaging, and all communication needs from a single application environment. Its performance can be enhanced by adding video conferencing platforms into the UC core.

In order to better leverage existing UC investments, enterprises need to add UCaaS to their options, and the current partnership appears to give them an opportunity to do this. With this UCaaS solution, businesses receive all the benefits of UC, without the pain points of increased spend on premises-based systems.

UCaaS is a delivery model in which a variety of communication and collaboration applications and services are outsourced to a third-party provider and delivered over an IP network, usually the public Internet. The service provider hosts UC "in the cloud", and businesses buy UC according to their needs, thus making it affordable to everyone.

“We are able to offer ‘UC as a Service’ to our corporate clients ranging from SMEs to large enterprises and carriers,” said David Liu, CEO and founder of Deltapath.

The benefits of UCaaS are many: it enables enterprises to move to mature IP-based telephony, eradicates the need for traditional PBX (News - Alert),  it’s easy to deploy and use, enhances employee performance by providing communication and collaboration tools, improves time-to-market,  reduces capex and opex, and much more.

Deltapath's vision is to change the way people communicate at work, enabling them to connect and collaborate with each other anywhere, anytime they need, and hopefully, this partnership will propel the company in that direction.
