18 Mar CBTS Announces Partnership With N.J.-based Edge
CINCINNATI–(BUSINESS WIRE)–CBTS, a leading technology provider that delivers communications, cloud, infrastructure, and consulting solutions to clients across North America, is pleased to announce a partnership with Edge, the New Jersey-based nonprofit research and education network and technology partner.
The partnership will allow CBTS to provide its Hosted Enterprise UC solution to Edge’s consortium of academic and research institutions, school districts, government entities, and healthcare providers. Hosted Enterprise UC is powered by Cisco’s industry leading Hosted Collaboration Solution, and provides enterprise organizations with a full suite of applications including telephony, collaboration tools, mobility features, and Cisco IP handsets.
This solution will support Edge’s role as a nonprofit technology solutions partner that leverages high-performance optical networking, innovative solutions development, thought leadership, consortium purchasing, and industry alliances to aid its members in demystifying and accelerating their digital transformations.
“Managing legacy VOIP, telephony, and related unified communications solutions is an ongoing challenge for our member institutions,” said Gregg Chottiner, CIO and VP for Technology Advancement. “Existing systems can be a drain on IT resources, tedious and costly to maintain and manage, and offer a limited feature set. As we continue to advocate for and actively enable our members’ digital transformation journeys, providing a path to a cloud-based solution that delivers cutting edge UC features and functionality while minimizing the burden on IT staff is a no brainer.”
“The CBTS Hosted Enterprise UC solution will allow Edge member institutions to communicate and collaborate more efficiently in order to drive business outcomes,” said Tony King, Senior Director of Solutions for CBTS. “We look forward to working closely with Edge and its members to help them fully leverage this powerful solution.”
