Australian operator Telstra is bringing its cloud-based unified communications for the enterprise market to a global audience.

Telstra launched the service in Australia last year in partnership with Cisco, and said it is now available across four continents in 25 countries.

The service, which is based on Cisco’s Unified Computing platform, will be delivered via Telstra’s cloud infrastructure, which now extends to seven locations throughout the US, Europe and Asia-Pacific.

Available from the end of August, it is being offered to customers on a monthly, “per worker” basis, which Telstra claims is unique.

Workers are grouped in different categories such as “essential”, “office”, “information” or “mobile” to make deployment simpler and easily scalable.

Nathan Bell, Telstra Global Enterprise and Services, Director of Marketing, Portfolio and Pricing, commented: “Our new global service been designed specifically for today’s dynamic workplace where employees use the web, video and voice to drive innovation and improve productivity.

“Businesses can roll-out extensive collaboration and communications tools to staff throughout the world, scale user profiles and functionality up and down depending on business requirements and ensure employees working remotely have identical resources to those working in the office – all while minimising traditionally significant upfront investment models.”

Last week, Infonetics Research said the hosted PBX and unified communications services market is set to grow 13 percent this year as enterprises look to cloud-based solutions.

The launch builds on the news that Telstra has chosen Ericsson to supply optical network equipment and introduce SDN/NFV functionality.
