Top cloud-based telephony and UC providers


Birns Telecommunications offers affordable, reliable cloud-hosted PBX

Some conventional telecomm providers -- such as Birns Telecommunications -- have jumped eagerly into the "PBX in the cloud" game. Birns Telecommunications offerings generally depend on the presence of reasonably capable VoIP handsets on-premises to provide local entry/access points for their telephony and UC options. The company works with well-known brand names (e.g., NEC, Cisco, Mitel and so forth) and offers reasonably priced cloud-hosted solutions (between $25 and $50 a month per user), supported by a knowledgeable and experienced team of installation and support technicians. Coming from a company with deep, long-standing roots in the traditional PBX marketplace, their UC and "as a Service" (UCaaS, Software as a Service, Platform as a Service and Infrastructure as a Service) offerings are somewhat thinner than other players in this space, but their service offerings are solid, reliable and affordable.
