Broadview's enterprise-grade cloud business phone system augments Synnex's SMB cloud-based VOIP portfolio.Broadview Networks announced that its enterprise-grade cloud business phone system, OfficeSuite, has been added to Synnex's SMB cloud-based voice over IP (VOIP) service portfolio via the CLOUDSolv unified communications (UC) offering. OfficeSuite is designed to enable Synnex resellers to easily build a recurring revenue stream while solving their customers' needs, said the cloud-based business communications services company. The OfficeSuite enterprise-grade cloud phone system provides businesses with an IP-based phone system, unlimited nationwide calling and a Web-based management tool. The communications suite includes IP phones, basic and advanced features and call center applications without any capital investment, maintenance contracts or additional IT resources, said Broadview. Synnex, a distributor of IT products and services, enables resellers to offer cloud-based capabilities that scale from five users to more than 10,000 endpoints. CLOUDSolv, a cloud services automation platform, was launched in 2011 to help resellers manage their cloud services business, enabling them to sell cloud services individually or as a bundled solution.
Global service provider revenue from business and residential/SOHO (small office/home office) VOIP services nearly reached $58 billion in 2011, up 16 percent from 2010, according to an Infonetics Research 2012 report. The study also noted that demand for cloud-based services helped drive hosted PBX and UC service revenue up 33 percent in 2011.
