Italtel is engineering and providing 3,500 new positions for Smart Working users, for which mobile Unifed Communication and Collaboration (UC&C) services have been activated.
The solution is in the delivery process starting from September 2016.
This project puts into practice the operator's objective of continuing the technological renovation of the internal telephone system started in 2013, in line with what it now offers its clients confirming the choice of Italtel as technological partner.
Italtel’s proposition revolves around an IP PBX Cisco Unified Communications Manager CUCM-based Collaboration solution and the creation of profiling dedicated to different business roles.
This solution is designed to support and complement the Presence & Instant Messaging service provided by the Microsoft Lync platform and to provide new multimedia services on mobile and technologically advanced devices.
Italtel has the role of Prime Contractor and as well as taking care of the solution delivery in a way that ensures the continuity of telephone service during user migration phase, it also provides professional post-selling services.
The efficiency of the solution covers all national branches. There are 3,500 users over two CUCM clusters with a Small Medium Enterprise (SME) configuration.
