Star2Star’s Scalable Cloud Communications Solution Receives Frost & Sullivan's Prestigious UC Excellence Award

- Brand Perception of the Uniqueness of the Product
Frost & Sullivan used a 10-step process to identify award recipients. As a part of those steps, they evaluated solutions based on unique features / functionality, quality / complexity, customization capabilities, target market needs matched, and perception of the product’s uniqueness. Frost & Sullivan applied their TEAM Research methodology to produce a 360-degree evaluation of industry challenges, trends and issues. Within this methodology, the letters T, E, A and M reflect core technical, economic, applied (financial and best practices) and market analyses.
What Do The Experts Say?
Elka Popova, North American Program Director, Unified Communications & Collaboration Information and Communication Technologies at Frost & Sullivan
"Premises-based IP telephony and UC systems typically offer richer functionality and superior reliability, whereas hosted IP telephony and cloud UC solutions offer greater flexibility and allow the business to focus on its core revenue-generating activities. As businesses seek to future-proof their communications technology investments they hesitate to choose either one of the more common deployment models. Star2Star’s unique cloud architecture provides an alternative that combines the best of both worlds. It offers a safer migration path to businesses reluctant to make a substantial investment in a complex new premises-based system or to entrust all of their communications capabilities to the cloud."
