Tata Communications seeing significant demand growth for hosted UC services
We recently interviewed Anthony Bartolo, the senior vice president of Unified Communications and Collaboration at Tata Communications, to get his perspective on the latest trends. Tata Communications targets the top 2500 multinational corporations and also provides global white label services for other carriers to target the mid-tier and small business market segments. Tata Communications is also a global carrier partner helping Microsoft deliver its Skype for Business services.Tata Communications launched new platforms last month including: InstaCC Global: a cloud-based contact center solution, powered by Cisco’s Hosted Collaboration Suite. Click2RTC (Click to Real-Time Communications): a contextual cloud communications service that enables voice, chat, and visual collaboration directly from a website or mobile applications. Hosted Microsoft Lync: a Unified Communications as a Service (UCaaS) based on a Microsoft Lync platform. According to Bartolo, his company’s aggregate business has been growing at over 30% CAGR, with demand for Lync (now Skype for Business) growing even faster than the aggregate services demand. One reason for his company’s success is that, as a global service provider, Tata Communications already has interconnection and service level agreements in place with many other carriers, so when signing up with Tata for unified communications services, enterprises can save the time and trouble of establishing global contracts.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here Read More

Watching a 'Swatting' slowly unfold within sight of the Boston Marathon starting line
Approaching the center of town to pick up pizza last night, I saw a half-dozen police vehicles blocking off Main Street. I pulled into a parking lot both to figure out how to get to our dinner and to find out what was going on.The instant a bystander told me what he had heard, I knew this police operation was almost certainly the result of a hoax known as Swatting, which starts with a fake 911 call reporting a non-existent life-threatening situation. It’s become an epidemic of late, targeting celebrities and online gamers, in particular.While police had no choice but to take the threat seriously – more on that in a minute -- I was confident this was a hoax for two reasons: I have been reporting on the topic recently and the rumored details of the 911 call seemed far-fetched: a man claimed to be holed up in the closed Hopkinton Public Library with two hostages and a bomb. (Not only did I believe this was a Swatting, I said it out loud, so the editor of a local news site called HopNews decided I was worth interviewing.)To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here Read More
