February 7th, 2022 by admin

Handshake between two parties.

Probably by now, you must have heard the big news that is making the round all over the internet. That’s right; the two global giants, RingCentral Inc, and Mitel have announced their partnership. Well, it’s indeed good news, and we, from Contrast, wish them all the best for their new partnership.

RingCentral is a leading global enterprise for cloud communication, collaboration, video meetings, and contact center solutions. On the other hand, Mitel is a world leader in business communications. However, we are also proud to say that Contrast continues to be a strategic service provider for both companies.

RingCentral has partnered with Mitel to provide their client base a seamless and smooth migration path to the message video phone cloud communications offered by RingCentral. RingCentral aims to be the exclusive UCaaS partner for Mitel’s ever-increasing 35 million users. The company strives to deliver this by providing Cloudlink technology.

What is Cloudlink Technology?

Cloudlink Technology offers innovative data security products. In other words, it is a flexible and innovative key management and data encryption solution. This is used for encrypted data in private, public, and hybrid cloud environments.

Cloudlink Technology encrypts data using unique keys controlled by enterprise security administrators. Moreover, nobody is given access to the keys in the cloud, which further ensures excellent protection against data spillage and tampering.

Furthermore, Mitel will focus on providing top-class UC and innovative solutions to customers like never before through this partnership. Put simply; their partnership brings a new and unique depth to better serve their clients.

Through this partnership, Mitel customers can leverage their existing on-premises PBX capabilities and enjoy a seamless and highly differentiated transition to full adoption of the cloud.

Financials

Now that we know all the details let’s talk about this partnership in financial terms, shall we? To acquire IPR, RingCentral plans to pay Mitel $650 million. Besides this, intellectual property rights will also be able to get patents covering call and network management, infrastructure, and security. Moreover, they will also be getting more investments from other affiliates, such as Searchlight plans to invest $200 million in RingCentral as part of the transaction.
