Arriving as a result of the pair’s strategic partnership, the Unified Communications as a Service solution combines the latest in UCaaS technology from RingCentral with networking, communication, cloud solutions and services from Alcatel-Lucent’s portfolio.

Heather Zhang, Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise's Country Business Leader for the UK, said the solution will address the needs of both middle and large enterprise customers.

"This public UCaaS solution, which includes outbound and inbound calling minutes, represents a fantastic opportunity for companies who want to accelerate their transformation to the cloud," she explained. "These businesses can benefit from a secure business communication platform, which is both easy to implement and to use.

"The Rainbow Office carrier-grade communication suite provides an all-in-one solution with multiple security layers, offering protection for applications and devices from potential attacks."

With Rainbow Office, users are able to efficiently and securely collaborate from anywhere and across any device, leveraging RingCentral’s integrated Message Video Phone (MVP) capabilities. 

The platform also provides HD audio and video, virtual backgrounds, screen share capabilities, the ability to check presence, share files, as well as seamlessly switch between devices with integrated carrier-grade voice.
