Savings

Save up to 68% on TCO with CloudBond 365!

Case study

In an independent analysis conducted by Dr. Brent Kelly, President of KelCor Inc. and Marty Parker, Principal of UniComm Consulting, CloudBond 365 (formerly One Box 365) was tested to see if it would be compelling to SMBs and enterprises from the TCO perspective. The study looks to calculate TCO over a 5-year period (60 months) including costs for: equipment, licenses or hosting fees, phones, maintenance, operational costs (staff, utilities, bandwidth). The study showed that CloudBond 365 can save as much as 68% on TCO as compared to other Lync on-premises deployment options. The study looks to calculate TCO over a 5-year period (60 months) including costs for: equipment, licenses or hosting fees, phones, maintenance, operational costs (staff, utilities, bandwidth).

TCO savings across all scales

The analysts studied two scenarios: SMBs from 50 to 200 users and enterprises from 500 to 5,000 users. In the study, they compared the CloudBond 365 solution versus Lync on-premises deployment and Hosted Lync. The charts to the right summarize the findings.

The analysts also compared the TCO of CloudBond 365 and the Office 365 E4 plan to a typical enterprise Standalone IP-PBX with UC (IM&P, conferencing and mobility) in deployment scenarios of 500, 1,000, 2,000 and 5,000 users, demonstrating consistent TCO savings across all scales.

Deployment

Single Site/HQ

From SMB up to 5,000 enterprise users, CloudBond 365 can be deployed as the main Lync voice infrastructure, connecting to Office 365 or in a standalone mode. Leveraging the native capabilities of the Lync server, CloudBond 365 can also be deployed in disaster recovery (all models) or full high availability modalities (CloudBond 365 Pro and Enterprise Edition only).

Branch Sites

Providing full survivability and local PSTN termination, CloudBond 365 is an ideal solution for obtaining maximum communications performance for remote branches. Whether it is connected to the main HQ Lync server deployment or a partner hosted platform, branch users can enjoy uninterrupted optimal service for all communications modalities, even in the case of a WAN failure.

Proof of Concept

Rarely does a customer decide to fully deploy Lync voice without an initial trial. However, with the company’s platform in the Microsoft cloud, enabling voice for some of the users is not a trivial process. With the proprietary Office 365 Connector, CloudBond 365 can dramatically simplify and accelerate proof of concept trials, importing locally and enabling only the desired user base with enterprise voice, without impacting the customer’s infrastructure. Trialing Lync voice has never been so simple.
