NTT Communications has begun offering U.S. and Europe-based platforms for Arcstar UCaaS, its globally seamless, cloud-based unified communications service for enterprises.
NTT Com's Arcstar UCaaS uses cloud-based infrastructure to assure low-latency, highly redundant communication. It integrates VoIP phones, web and audio conferencing, instant messaging, presence and other collaboration tools in the cloud.
Arcstar UCaaS combines the expertise and experience of NTT Com and group companies including Arkadin in fields such as applications, cloud infrastructure and networks.
In 2013, NTT Communications agreed to acquire the majority stake in Arkadin, which delivers SaaS conference-related solutions covering audio, web, video conferencing and unified communications services.
Arkadin, which was launched in 2001 by CEO, Olivier de Puymorin, serves approximately 37,000 customers in 32 countries, including France, Germany, the UK, USA, Australia, China, Singapore and Japan. The company was based in Paris. Arkadin was backed by AXA Private Equity.
Arkadin offers unified communications based on Microsoft Lync, as well as Cisco Jabber combined with WebEx. Services are delivered in the cloud. Arkadin also offers Adobe Connect for audio/video/web conferencing and collaboration.
