Branch Office Solutions

Smaller offices often have the same communications requirements as larger enterprise sites. But many organizations struggle to deliver advanced unified communication services to smaller sites with limited IT staff. Ribbon’s security and UC solutions were designed for enterprise-wide deployment including remote and branch office locations. Site survivability, plug-and-play endpoints, tiered administrative systems, and self-service configuration tools make it easy for remote users to get up and running and reconfigure services without corporate help desk assistance. Our Intelligent Edge devices can be deployed on cost-effective SD-WAN connections without sacrificing fail-over and remote administration.

Migrated an Outdated Key Phone System to Enterprise UC

Unlike competitors who simply repurpose small business systems for branch office use, Ribbon fully extends the full suite of enterprise UC capabilities to smaller sites. Services can be delivered centrally or regionally, from the network or from the cloud. With centralized SIP session management, enterprises can tie together legacy PBXs from multiple vendors across multiple sites, overlay new services and gradually migrate users to a modern Ribbon core. It’s an ideal solution for a Norstar phone system or similar products that no longer actively sold. And our service provider heritage means that Ribbon knows how to design branch office networks that can survive a connectivity loss.
