As such, the AirDial solution will be sold, written, and billed on T-Mobile for Business paper. AirDial is a POTS line replacement solution that Ooma initially announced and launched in November 2021. What's new here is T-Mobile for Business is now selling AirDial, helping build awareness and access to a POTS line replacement solution for enterprise and vertical market customers, as well as SMB customers. Why? If businesses are using PBX or UC (unified communications) systems, for example - and many are - they likely have requirements for analog device connections (e.g., fire alarm panels, building access systems, fax machines in offices, analog phones for public areas in buildings, elevators). Ooma AirDial can help address the looming issues surrounding the retirement of the PSTN copper-wire infrastructure.</P> IDC Link Fri, 23 Sep 2022 04:00:00 GMT Rich Costello, Jason Blackwell IDC Survey Spotlight: What Is the "Next Most Likely" Managed Network Service That Canadian Customers Will Adopt? <P>This IDC Survey Spotlight provides insights into Canadian organizations' use and adoption of Managed Network Services in groupings.

Complexity is a necessary consequence of multiparty models — with more products, more partners, and more flexible technology architecture. The challenge is to manage complexity, using automation and orchestration to make growth scalable. The unique challenges of the communications SP market demand a high degree of flexibility to satisfy required changes and to address time and cost to market expectations. This includes the challenges to satisfy multisided network and service workflows that are powered by combinations of partner provided functionality and SDN connectivity options. </P><P>"Connectivity management, with its flexibility tied to latency, volume carrying capacity, and speed, is only one part of the long-term customer satisfaction equation as partner provided capabilities take on a more prominent role in addressing customer needs. Complexity comes not from a single interaction between entities but through the number of interactions behind the scenes that are continuously managed for customer satisfaction and business success, says Karl Whitelock, research vice president, IDC's Communications Service Provider Operations and Monetization. Communication SPs need to deploy solutions designed specifically for interoperability in software-defined, intent-based architectures."</P> Market Perspective Wed, 21 Sep 2022 04:00:00 GMT Karl Whitelock
