April 22 is Earth Day, and Star2Star is joining businesses of all stripes in its commitment to a greener, more eco-friendly globe.
One of the main ways we show our green is via our product portfolio. With tools like email, voicemail, VoIP, instant messaging, video conferencing and collaboration, all available across devices via the cloud for on-demand access from any location, unified communications (UC) connects disparate teams, enabling telecommuters and reducing the need to travel. Fewer people commuting to work and taking planes, and the reduction in energy consumption for office space brought on by embracing remote working are a few immediate green results of implementing UC.
We also focus on enabling UC in a sustainable and resource-conserving way. Star2Star’s unique hybrid architecture offers quick set-up and deployment, leveraging the power of the cloud. All installations start with our StarBox® Cloud Connection Manager, an on-premise edge device that offers a rich administrative interface and feature set, including integrated monitoring and remote management, round-the-clock monitoring, and flexible networking configuration with dual WAN ports for automatic WAN failover. In line with our climate-friendly efforts, all models are compact and energy efficient; the smallest draws only 6 watts of AC power.
Earth Day was first celebrated in 1970, and it has since grown into the largest secular observance in the world, celebrated by more than a billion people every year. It’s a day of action, focused on changing human behavior and provoking policy changes.
We at Star2Star invite you to join us in observing Earth Day. As we approach 2020, the 50th anniversary of the first Earth Day, the fight for a clean environment continues and is accelerating with increasing urgency, as the ravages of climate change become more manifest every day. We take pride in doing our part with our eco-friendly portfolio, built to respect the planet.
