The company’s UC functions can now be offered regardless of whether the solutions are deployed in-house, or on private or public clouds.

The company’s UC functions can now be offered regardless of whether the solutions are deployed in-house, or on private or public clouds.

Swyx has launched a cloud-based communications platform and plans to offer its “products as a service” throughout Europe. 

The company reckons its new SwyxON service enables customers to benefit from UC functionality as well as the “high elasticity, flexibility and cost-effectiveness” of cloud-based communication. 

It adds that customers can quickly alter the services they use in order to react flexibly to new requirements. Multiple locations and mobile users can also be easily integrated, and it’s further claimed that users can “significantly” reduce maintenance and administration costs because they always use the latest version of Swyx’s communication solutions. 

SwyxON will be available next year, first in Germany and then throughout Europe. The company says it is working closely with experienced partners who have their own network infrastructures and data centres to provide their own cloud services, ensuring the quality and safety of the solution.

Swyx is keen to point out that it remains committed to its channel partners. Customers can purchase the manufacturer's own cloud service exclusively through authorised resellers, system vendors and integrators. 

“We have developed a cloud offering which optimally meets the requirements of a dynamic market and offers users maximum flexibility,” says Dr. Ralf Ebbinghaus, CEO, Swyx Solutions. 

“At the same time, SwyxON makes it easier for resellers to enter the cloud business, so that even more of our partners will be able to take advantage of the opportunities offered by the market growth of Unified Communications as a Service in the future.”

CTO Martin Classen adds that it is ideal for users if a communications solution offers an identical feature set across all deployment variants. Swyx therefore offers a unified range of functions across all variants and deployment forms, regardless of whether it is an in-house solution, private or public cloud. 

“With the new version 11 of our solution, we are not only bringing on premises and cloud together in one core software platform, we also aim to make it possible to have a uniform range of functions across different cloud types from public to private through to hybrid,” says Classen. 

“This flexible deployment model allows our solution to support a wide range of migration scenarios and hybrid models in the best possible way, allowing each customer to find their own way into the cloud and adapt step by step as required.”
