“Get Connected” helps bolster productivity and streamline voice collaboration anywhere and at any time

PLANO, Texas, July 27, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Ribbon Communications Inc. (Nasdaq: RBBN), a global provider of real time communications technology and IP optical networking solutions to many of the world’s largest service providers, enterprises, and critical infrastructure operators to modernize and protect their networks, today announced it has partnered with Poly and TD SYNNEX to launch the “Get Connected” Microsoft Teams bundle. The new solution offers remote and hybrid businesses a quick, risk-free approach to adopting Microsoft Teams so employees can stay focused, engaged and efficient regardless of location.

“Today’s work environments are more complex and fluid than ever before. As a result, organizations need streamlined solutions that deliver full-fledged, secure communications capabilities so employees can enjoy a seamless work experience,” said Tony Scarfo, Executive Vice President and General Manager, Cloud and Edge Business Unit at Ribbon. “We’re partnering with Poly and TD SYNNEX to equip enterprises with a secure, easily scalable solution that enables voice connectivity anywhere, anytime.”

Get Connected centers on proven technology from two Gold Microsoft Partners. The bundle combines Ribbon Connect with up to five Poly performance media CCX 600 desk phones or P15 personal video bars. Ribbon Connect is a cloud-based voice enablement service that securely connects new or existing phone lines, numbers and service plans to Microsoft Teams, simplifying adoption of Microsoft Teams and preserving existing investments and business workflows. Poly endpoints are designed to improve engagement with customers and enhance productivity between employees.

“Hybrid work is here to stay, but there are significant hurdles to overcome before organizations can call it a success,” said Steven Fair, Global Head of Audio Sales Acceleration, Poly. “By participating in the ‘try before you buy’ bundle offer, Poly is making it easier for employers to keep their teams connected wherever work takes them.”

“We believe this offer is exactly what the market demands for today’s distributed workforce,” said TJ Trojan, Sr. Vice President of NA Unified Communications, Collaboration and Connectivity, TD SYNNEX. “And with TD SYNNEX ConnectSolv, our industry-leading communications and connectivity enablement platform and support program, partners can implement solutions quickly so that enterprises can provide all workers with the same quality services whether in the office or remote.”
