The joint solution combines AVST’s

UC platform, CX-E, with collab9’s

hosted UC solutions and is expected

to accelerate the transformation to

the cloud for government entities,

said the companies.

“For too long, the introduction of

new technology in the public sector

has been hampered by the limited

availability of proprietary, OEM-driv-

en solutions,” said Steve Boberski,

vice president of business develop-

ment for collab9. “collab9’s partner-

ship with AVST enables us

to offer an accelerated migration

path through a secure integration to

legacy TDM, hybrid and VoIP tele-

phony solutions.”

By removing proprietary applica-

tion instances from the cloud, the two

companies are introducing a new level

of agility, flexibility and scalability that

has, until now, been unavailable to the

public sector, said Boberski.
