Verizon upgrades Virtual Communications Express platform

Tuesday 10 September 2019 | 16:36 CET | News

Verizon said it has "supercharged" its Virtual Communications Express (VCE) platform by delivering it over the company’s global VoIP service, and reinforcing the service with hosted or premise based SD-WAN connectivity. The platform is now available across Asia, Europe and the US.

By combining the platform with Verizon’s VoIP service, VCE customers will be able to obtain cost savings by sharing trunk capacity across all their sites, the company says in a press release. In addition, users may make long distance calls to any Verizon Wireless device, or call other Verizon VoIP users via the Wireless Connected VoIP and VoIP IP Enterprise routing features, for no additional charge.

Verizon’s SD-WAN also enables VCE customers to enhance user and customer performance; enabling greater diversity, resiliency and security with capacity prioritisation.

VCE available via Cisco Webex suite

Verizon now also offers VCE via a Cisco Collaboration Flex Plan - Webex Calling. This combines the power of hosted UC&C functionalities and Verizon’s VoIP connectivity with the added flexibility of Cisco’s Flex Plan licensing model. Verizon says it's the only carrier in the market that supports Cisco Webex Calling in Webex Teams on a private MPLS network.

Verizon’s VCE is available across Asia, Europe and the US. It's complemented by a broad suite of Verizon enterprise products including call centre, security, wireless and network products, all supported by Verizon’s global Professional Services and Solutions Adoption teams.
