(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – 1toGo Mobile (www.1togo.net), a provider of mobile Cloud based IP PBX and unified communications services, has announced the launch of new mobile Cloud unified communications services powered by the CommuniGate Systems (www.communigate.com) Unified Communications Hosting Platform and its open-source cPanel adaptor.
1toGo Mobile’s new mobile Cloud unified communications services offer users features like personal and shared mailboxes, calendars, contacts and tasks; business grade instant messaging; secure file storage; push email, calendaring and contacts to devices that support ActiveSync and inbox consolidation. The services include mobile unified communications clients for Android and iOS devices as well as Web and desktop unified communications clients for PCs and Macs.
1toGo Mobile’s new mobile Cloud unified communications services will be offered from a virtual private server (VPS) environment. Built for the VPS provider cPanel environment, the CommuniGate Systems Unified Communications Hosting Platform and its open-source cPanel adaptor provide remarkable performance and reliability without the hardware overheads of other solutions.
1toGo Mobile already uses CommuniGate Systems’ CommuniGate Pro unified communications technology to power its existing mobile Cloud IP PBX and unified communications service which apart from a powerful IP PBX offers additional features such as presentation sharing / Web conferencing; high definition (HD) VoIP calling / conferencing and video calling.
“CommuniGate Systems’ powerful carrier grade compact, multi-tenant integrated platform offers us unbeatable scalability and reliability as well as a low total cost of ownership”, explains Nigel Sinclair Thomson, CEO of 1toGo Mobile. “This in turn enables us to provide our users with aggressively priced affordable and reliable mobile Cloud IP PBX and unified communications services. As an example, we are able to offer our premium mobile unified communications service including Cloud IP PBX and on net calling in HD voice from less than R100 per user per month. The CommuniGate Systems Unified Communications Hosting Platform and open source cPanel plugin allow us to price our new Cloud unified communications services just as aggressively”.
“The CommuniGate Systems Unified Communications Hosting Platform allows Virtual Private Server providers to offer Enterprise Grade communications services in the Cloud at a fraction of the costs to either maintain or resell solutions from Microsoft or Google”, adds Carlo Petrolo, South Europe, Middle East and Africa Manager for CommuniGate Systems. “Everything is installed on the same servers and virtualized using the elegant cPanel self-care interface, giving the end customer the power to manage their services”.
“As the power of the Cloud grows along with the hardware capabilities of mobile devices and the availability of high speed networks, Cloud based service providers like 1toGo Mobile and technologies like CommuniGate Systems’ Unified Communications Hosting Platform make it easy for businesses to use services which they previously would not have been able to access or would have had to host in-house”, says Steven Ambrose, CEO of business and digital marketing consultancy Strategy Worx Consulting (www.strategyworx.co.za). “The Cloud enables businesses to improve their business processes, productivity and bottom lines without tying up capital and other resources which could have been better spent on their core business”.
