Ribbon Communications Inc., a global provider of real time communications technology and IP optical networking solutions to many of the world’s largest service providers, enterprises, and critical infrastructure operators to modernize and protect their networks, today announced that Beanfield is leveraging Ribbon Connect for Operator Connect to facilitate and enhance its deployment of Operator Connect for Microsoft Teams.
“Our business customers are increasingly adding telecom services to their collaboration solutions as they embrace hybrid work models. Ribbon offers us a turnkey digital engagement model to rapidly deliver telecom services for Microsoft Teams Phone, leveraging Microsoft’s Operator Connect solution,” said Dan Armstrong, CEO, Beanfield. “Partnering with Ribbon allows us to become one of a select few providers in Canada to offer their services via Operator Connect, and provide our customers this new capability.”
An as a Service (aaS) solution, Ribbon Connect for Operator Connect offers portal-based administration tools that enable service providers to simplify selling, provisioning and billing of telecom services, making it easier for businesses to transition from legacy telephony services to Microsoft Teams Phone. Ribbon Connect dramatically reduces the integration efforts typically required to enable Operator Connect by providing pre-assembled API integration, sales enablement and a multi-tier portal. The Ribbon Connect portfolio is built with Ribbon’s proven carrier-grade security products and services, that are already trusted and deployed in many of the world’s largest telecom networks.
“Today’s service providers are eager to enable their customers to adopt the kind of modern calling experience that Teams Phone enables and our Ribbon Connect solution facilitates this integration,” said Dave Shier, Ribbon’s VP of Sales, Canada. “We’re pleased to extend our relationship with Beanfield as they continue to provide advanced options to their end customers and build on their reputation in Canada as an innovator in the telecom space.”
