Why UC cloud services are what enterprises need now

This Network University Classroom explores how UC cloud services offer enterprises many benefits, from faster deployment times to more consistent features.


UC cloud services and applications are ready to support a mobile workforce and simplify UC for enterprises.

In this university classroom, Kerravala examines how cloud-based UC can move infrastructure and complexity into the cloud, provide faster deployment times, cut costs and provide consistent features for the workforce regardless of their location.
