Unified Communications specialist ShoreTel has revealed a high adoption of its phone systems and unified communications (UC) solutions for the cloud and premises across the Australia and New Zealand region.

“Since the global release of ShoreTel 14.2 earlier this year, our partners in Australia and New Zealand have really embraced the new capabilities and opportunities that a virtualised communications presents for their business,” says Jamie Romanin, ANZ managing director, ShoreTel.

“It’s enabled ShoreTel partners to deliver new technical offerings, and also opened up greater business opportunities for partners to offer cloud-based and managed hosting solutions.”

“More and more organisations throughout Australia are embracing the ability to deliver ShoreTel Unified Communication (UC) as a virtual software-only solution as it allows customers to take advantage of server consolidation, increased security, operational flexibility and higher applications availability during planned and unplanned downtime - all resulting in increased cost savings and decreased downtime.”

Communication systems requirements vary widely from company to company, and the availability of virtualisation technology is changing how UC is deployed in small- and medium-sized companies as well as large enterprises.

Virtualisation technology can deliver a number of benefits to customers, depending on customer uses and needs.

“The time is now to take advantage of virtualisation for unified communications – the infrastructure is in place, the market is ready, the channel is knowledgeable, and customers are clamouring to virtualise their PBX and entire communications platform,” adds Pej Roshan, vice president of product management, ShoreTel.

“Virtualisation complements our distributed architecture and allows customers to benefit from virtualisation features and ShoreTel’s inherent N+1 redundancy to deliver high availability at the lowest cost.

“In addition, virtualisation sets the foundation for customers to consume VoIP services via on-premises, hybrid, and cloud deployment models.”
