This E5 deployment is noteworthy because, according to Microsoft, it is one of the first successful installations of its newest product. Iron Cove has been tapped by Microsoft to act as a leading partner for E5 deployments, business conferencing, and collaboration. Included with Office 365 E5 are Microsoft’s new cloud PBX, PSTN voice, and conferencing functionalities. These feature were configured for Iron Cove’s client, including new Polycom VVX 600 phones that are exclusively designed to work with Microsoft’s advanced cloud PBX and PSTN voice services.
A Cisco Meraki 24-port switch and two wireless access points were also part of the makeover, giving the private equity firm the ability to manage a secure, scalable, and private wireless cloud network for its offices.
By moving to the cloud and reconfiguring their network, Iron Cove’s client forecasts a savings in excess of $36K over a three year period.
