Service providers looking to offer UCaaS without the associated expense of building their own infrastructure have a new option.
UCaaS solutions provider for carriers, netsapiens has launched SNAPaccel, its managed infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) solution. By offering managed IaaS capabilities, netsapiens is making it even easier for service providers to seamlessly deploy UC solution or migrate it from an on-premise to cloud native architecture.
“For many smaller and mid-sized service providers and their IT teams, cloud migrations are particularly tricky,” says Anand Buch, CEO of netsapiens. “In fact, according to industry research, almost half of all migrations fail with 70 percent requiring a design change during migration and 50 percent resulting in a greater service provider spend than expected. With SNAPaccel, service providers can eliminate their upfront costs and rely on our expertise to integrate their netsapiens platform software on our fully managed infrastructure. Under this program, we assume the responsibility of designing, acquiring, deploying, configuring and maintaining the physical equipment as well as the operating system on which our customers’ UC software runs.”
“Because not all As-A-Service models are alike, service providers often have to choose who will control their business model – them or their UC provider,” says Jason Byrne, Senior Vice President of Products and Marketing at netsapiens. “SNAPaccel provides our customers with the highest levels of flexibility and control over not only their business model but also the supporting infrastructure, just without the headache of maintaining it. One interesting data point is that 80 percent of service provider revenues are above the infrastructure, according to the IDC. As a result, it makes sense for service providers to free themselves from costly investments both in infrastructure and the teams to manage it.”
Leveraging a network of geo-redundant top tier data centers, netsapiens’ SNAPaccel lets service providers choose as much offloading as they desire, from the infrastructure to the operating system. Most importantly, they can offload day-to-day operations all while maintaining full control of their own business model and destiny. Key benefits of SNAPaccel for service providers include:
- Eliminates capital expense – and reduces ongoing cost.
- Focus on business growth – not the hardware it runs on.
- Faster Time to Market – reduce your time to revenue by up to 66%.
- Expand as You Grow – the value of the “as a service model”.
We think this is a great move for netsapiens and more importantly, allows carriers to launch into providing UCaaS rapidly. They also can pay as they grow – no need to make a huge investment in advance.
