CBTS is pleased to announce a partnership with OSHEAN, Inc a Rhode Island nonprofit Research and Education Network (REN). The partnership will allow CBTS to provide its Hosted Enterprise UC solution to OSHEAN’s coalition of universities, libraries, K-12 schools, libraries, hospitals, government agencies and other nonprofit organizations. Hosted Enterprise UC is powered by Cisco’s industry leading Hosted Collaboration Solution, and provides enterprise organizations a full suite of applications including telephony, collaboration tools, mobility features and Cisco IP handsets.
Hosted Enterprise UC will support OSHEAN’s mission to deliver critical applications to its members that are increasingly turning toward cloud-based services. These services will be delivered in an efficient, high-performance, and resilient manner across its BEACON2 fiber network. OSHEAN is building a direct peering architecture in multiple cities to provide on-net, low latency, and resilient transport for the service.
“CBTS is recognized by our membership as having a strong pedigree in delivering high-quality enterprise voice services,” said David C. Marble, CEO and President of OSHEAN. “It is obvious Cisco agrees as they have strategically collaborated with CBTS to build a fully managed, cloud-based service offering for the Hosted Collaboration Service (HCS) product offering.”
“The CBTS Hosted Enterprise UC solution will allow OSHEAN member institutions to communicate and collaborate more efficiently in order to drive business outcomes,” said Joe Putnick, Vice President and Principal of the CBTS Communications Practice. “We look forward to working closely with OSHEAN and its members to help them fully leverage this powerful solution.”
