AT&T, Cisco Usher in Enhanced Cloud Communications for Hybrid Workforce

Cisco and AT&T  are making it easier for businesses to adapt to the future of work, whatever it may be. Together with Cisco, AT&T Business is bringing Webex Calling with AT&T – Enterprise to Cisco’s trusted Unified Communications Manager – Cloud (UCMC), helping businesses optimize operations and accelerate digital transformation in nearly any environment.

UCMC will enhance reliability and performance for all Webex Calling with AT&T – Enterprise users. AT&T and Cisco expect to offer as many as 1 million users the UCMC platform through sales of Webex Calling with AT&T – Enterprise over the next five years.

“The shift to hybrid work changed how companies operate and accelerated adoption of integrated cloud collaboration solutions,” said Javed Khan, senior vice president and general manager, Cisco Collaboration. “Our Webex solutions transformed the cloud calling experience and combine enterprise-calling features with market-leading virtual meetings and collaboration technology – all within the Webex App. And we’re proud to work with AT&T to provide its customers and employees with the tools and technologies they require to thrive in the new hybrid workplace.”

AT&T Business Vice President, Voice and Collaboration Rich Shaw added, “Today’s environment requires tools that enable flexible and adaptable business operations. By pairing expertise that can help businesses get the most of these solutions together with a high-performing network, we are elevating not only their ability to survive, but also to thrive. Our work with Cisco is a great example of how we’re able to innovate faster, accelerate the deployment of cutting-edge technologies and unlock the full potential of our workforce and customers.”

As companies reopen their offices to workers, many are planning for a hybrid workforce model where employees could be connecting from home, the office or elsewhere. This shift to hybrid work requires companies to reevaluate and invest in cloud, collaboration and security technologies that alleviate potential threats and provide the fastest and most cost-effective solution.

By combining the reliability, quality, and expertise of the AT&T network in areas such as 5G, SD WAN, mobility, fiber, IP toll and security paired with Cisco’s infrastructure and Cloud Communications, AT&T can help streamline productivity by unifying processes across a single-vendor hosted solution while providing integrations across hundreds of applications and ecosystems.
