Colt to Launch “Colt Asia Cloud PBX Service”

Colt to Launch “Colt Asia Cloud PBX Service” for Full-Scale Support of Enterprise Communication Cloud Computing in April

All-in-one solution dramatically reduces communication costs, allows for flexible business growth, and provides PBX functionality, IP Phones, and office connectivity

Tokyo, 14 March 2017 – Colt Technology Services has announced that its “Colt Asia Cloud PBX Service” for enterprises will be available starting in April. The Service is designed to reduce customer costs and operational loads, and is an all-in-one solution that combines PBX functionality, IP Phones, and even access connectivity to office.

With “Colt Asia Cloud PBX Service”, customers are not required to purchase their own PBX, allowing them to pay only a minimal initial cost and small monthly fee. It also reduces the typical overhead and issues associated with PBX and telephony systems used by companies with multi-site connections at different offices, branches and storefronts: maintenance, operating costs, updates, outsourcing management of multiple implementation vendors, and customer support. The cloud infrastructure enhances the flexibility and scalability required for growing businesses, allowing enterprise customers to enjoy a consistent experience.

The PBX system used by the “Colt Asia Cloud PBX Service” is installed within Colt’s data centres, and relies on a software-based core with a proven track record both in Japan and internationally. Connectivity is powered by the “Colt IQ Network”*, Colt’s private Ethernet network, resulting in a reliable, high-quality voice service.

Provided they come from the same organization, calls made with “Colt Asia Cloud PBX Service” are free; they are treated as internal extension numbers. Furthermore, Colt-provided phone numbers (e.g. 0AB-J numbers, 050 IP numbers), and domestic toll free numbers (not for 050 IP numbers) can be used with the full set of PBX features, such as incoming and outgoing telephony, call transfer, hold, conference call, etc.

Cloud computing is already a standard in today’s IT environment. This reality also applies to voice communications, including telephony, that are indispensable to corporate business. With this service, Colt is dramatically reducing the cost of acquiring PBX and corporate telephony, in turn reducing the associated maintenance and overhead expenses that come with a communications network spanning multiple sites. These capabilities are essential for launching new businesses, rapid expansion of existing businesses, and establishing new sites. We are enabling our customers to tackle their challenges and achieve their goals, and with our “Colt Asia Cloud PBX Service” we are challenging the status quo.
