Hosted Telephony and UC
What is Hosted Telephony? Hosted Telephony is a service where a business phone system or PBX is delivered as a Cloud Service from a Provider data center. Hosted Telephony is sometimes called Cloud Telephony, Hosted PBX or Hosted VoIP.
What is UC? UC stands for Unified Communications (UC) and describes the integration of enterprise communication. “Unified” refers to bringing together of Instant messaging (chat), presence, voice (including IP telephony), mobility, audio, web & video conferencing, desktop sharing, data sharing (whiteboards), unified messaging (integrated voicemail, e-mail, SMS and fax). UC is not necessarily a single product, but a set of products that provides a consistent unified user interface and user experience.
What is Unified Communications as a Service (UCaaS)? UCaaS is a cloud service for “unified” or “converged” communication and collaboration. UCaaS is like Hosted Telephony, but includes other services also referenced in UC such as presence, messaging, web meetings, file sharing, collaboration and video conferencing.
