Verizon to Offer Cisco Collaboration Services

Verizon will expand its overall suite of unified communications and collaboration tools based on the new Cisco collaboration portfolio. New services will include components of Cisco Unified Communications System Release 7.0 and Verizon-developed collaborative business applications based on Cisco's new WebEx Connect platform. These services are aimed at enhancing communications and collaboration between and among employees, partners, customers and vendors, while enabling companies to achieve eco-friendly benefits through reduced travel and lower carbon emissions.

Verizon said it plans to offer to its large-business and government customers served by Verizon Business managed services support for Cisco Unified Communications Manager and Cisco Unified Contact Center. Verizon also plans to develop a customized business application based on the new WebEx Connect platform for its small- and medium-sized business customers served by Verizon Telecom. The new services will be available in the coming months.http://www.verizon.com
