Tone Launches New ReliaTel as a Service Cloud UC&C Management

New ReliaTel as a Service Delivers Comprehensive Cloud-Based Management for Avaya Aura, Avaya IP Office, and Cisco Unified Communications Manager

Empowers Organizations to Align Business, Operations, and Service Goals for Unified Communications and Collaboration, While Driving Higher ROI From UC Investments

ANAHEIM, CA--(Marketwired - May 25, 2016) - Tone Software Corporation, a leading provider of comprehensive unified communications and collaboration (UC&C) monitoring and management software for advanced collaboration ecosystems, today announced the new ReliaTel as a Service cloud-based management solution for UC&C environments. The ReliaTel as a Service (RaaS) solution provides comprehensive UC&C management from a dedicated and secure cloud-hosted instance, delivering deep visibility and control over quality and performance of Avaya Aura, Avaya IP Office, and Cisco Unified Communications Manager architectures that are configured on premise, in a hybrid premise and cloud combination, or through a unified communications as a service (UCaaS) model. The new ReliaTel as a Service offers rapid deployment, reduced operational support overhead, and a pay-as-you-go consumption model that eliminates capital budgetary barriers and ensures lower total cost of ownership for critical UC&C service assurance. As a result, organizations have the flexibility to align their UC&C service assurance model with business and operational needs, while also increasing quality, performance, and ROI from UC&C technologies.

Businesses today are embracing hybrid UC&C and cloud-driven UCaaS deployment models that deliver significant financial and operational efficiencies. These UC architectures typically span multiple technologies and rely on assets that reside outside the traditional premise network, creating additional management challenges for the IT and Operations teams responsible for UC. ReliaTel as a Service address these issues through real-time management and visibility over the entire domain stack of premise-based UC assets and transport layers, as well as cloud-consumed UC&C services.

"The new ReliaTel as a Service solution delivers the deep visibility and control required by today's UC&C architectures, without the IT burden of hosting the solution in the premise environment," stated Perry King, Director of Product Management for Tone Software. "Through ReliaTel as a Service, UC teams gain a highly scalable, efficient, and cost effective methodology to manage their UC&C ecosystem, with all the convenience and economies that cloud delivery provides," he added.

Visual360 Provides Exceptional Value for ReliaTel as a Service Users

For Avaya environments, ReliaTel as a Service delivers exceptional value through the ReliaTel Visual360 intelligence portal to visualize real-time UC quality, performance, and service level analytics correlated with operational and network conditions throughout the UC environment. Through Visual360, operations teams have the significant advantage of visualizing the relationships between devices, applications, and network segments involved in UC session paths to rapidly pinpoint the true origins of UC quality, performance, and service level degradation. As a result, UC teams can reduce the triage time required to diagnose UC issues by fifty percent or more, and utilize the integrated Visual360 analytics and remediation capabilities to quickly and accurately resolve issues -- all within one powerful, visual portal.

ReliaTel as a Service Delivers Operational Advantages

The ReliaTel as a Service solution is provided through a dedicated, secure AWS host instance that is initiated and maintained by Tone Software. Initial implementation of management services is included for new clients, and clients have full administrative control of all ReliaTel management capabilities to expand and adapt the ReliaTel cloud-hosted solution as their UC environment evolves. ReliaTel as a Service fully supports the multi-tenant environments necessary for Managed Service Providers (MSPs), and includes the ability to provide segmented secure views to individual clients through the cloud-delivered re-brandable web portal. Through ReliaTel as a Service, MSPs and IT teams enjoy the full scope of ReliaTel UC service assurance functionality, without the operational support burden of maintaining the host environment.

Consumptive Model Makes ReliaTel as a Service the Perfect Budget Fit

Businesses today often consume UC&C on a pay-as-you-go basis, and ReliaTel as a Service enables organizations to consume UC&C service assurance in this same way. With licensing options by seat and by end point, ReliaTel as a Service scales as the UC environment changes, and organizations pay only for what they need, when they need it. As a result, ReliaTel as a Service delivers significant budgetary advantages, eliminating the need for costly up front capital expenditures, while leveraging the flexibility to easily scale the solution as the environment changes.
