April 4, 2019
LAS VEGAS, NV.  – Ribbon Communications Inc. (Nasdaq: RBBN), a global software leader in secure and intelligent cloud communications, today announced that it will showcase several solutions designed to deliver its channel partners new ways to compete while saving money at the Channel Partners Conference & Expo in Las Vegas, April 9 – 12. Featured solutions include Ribbon’s Cloud UC & APIs, Direct Routing for Microsoft Teams, Intelligent Edge and SD-WAN products.

“Our channel partners are critical to our overall success and the solutions that we are featuring at this year’s conference provide them with several competitive advantages including the ability to quickly capitalize on the rapidly growing UCaaS market, which Gartner forecasts at 15% CAGR worldwide between 2018 and 2022,” said John Macario, Senior Vice President of Channel Marketing for Ribbon. “Our Cloud UC, Direct Routing for Teams and Intelligent Edge solutions are all playing key roles in helping our partners differentiate their offerings in a hyper-competitive environment and deliver increased value to their customers. We are looking forward to highlighting our channel partner-focused solutions and numerous success stories at the industry’s largest annual event.”

The following solutions will be on display at Ribbon’s booth #1761 at the Channel Partners Conference and Expo.

  • Cloud UC and APIs – Ribbon’s cloud-based Kandy Communications Platform as a Service (CPaaS) allows customers to scale as sales grow, quickly add new real-time communications features and capabilities and shift from cost-intensive, build-and-manage-your-own CAPEX models to more cost-efficient OPEX models.
  • Direct Routing for Microsoft Teams – Ribbon has one of the largest portfolios of Microsoft-certified Session Border Controllers (SBCs) in the industry and was among the first vendors certified to provide Direct Routing for Teams. The Direct Routing for Microsoft Teams solution leverages SBCs to connect legacy systems and endpoints for secure voice calling capabilities in Teams collaboration environments, eliminating the need for on-premises infrastructure.
  • Intelligent Edge and SD-WAN – Ribbon’s Intelligent Edge and SD-WAN solutions allow partners to increase the value they bring to customers by helping them optimize, manage and monitor their distributed UC environments with high quality of service (service assurance) and through reduced support costs.
