Pure IP Launches Hosted CCE Service

17, December 2017

Pure IP has developed a new way to connect SIP trunks to Skype for Business Online and Teams, allowing you to experience the HD-quality voice service from Pure IP while accessing the benefits of Office 365 integration.

Cloud Connector Edition (CCE) enables Skype for Business online customers to utilize their provider or preferred vendor for telecommunication services. The Pure IP solution facilitates users being hosted in Skype for Business online while connecting to Pure IP for Global PSTN / SIP connectivity.

In this blog, we will cover the solution we Hosted CCE can provide you and what to expect when using the solution.

The Proposal

Pure IP has launched a hosting service for CCE that is installed, managed and maintained in our core global data centers. The monthly subscription service requires no capital investment.

Benefits of the Pure IP hosted solution include:

  • No on-site equipment – everything is fully hosted in our own data center
  • Fully managed deployment and technical integration
  • Directly connected onto the Pure IP core voice infrastructure
  • Integrated into existing 24/7 support network
  • Redundancy options available
  • Tailored solutions

Pricing

The Hosted CCE pricing is based on the maximum number of concurrent calls.

Each instance of CCE has a one time setup charge of £1,000 per instance. The pricing is inclusive of maintenance, 24/7 support, hosting charges and public bandwidth with a minimum 12-month term commitment.

Pricing excludes any public certificates*

What is Required?

Our CCE solution is currently only available for Skype for Business online customers who do not have any Skype for Business on-premise. This limitation is a consequence of a customer’s online environment that is not connected to your local domain in order to co-exist with an on-premise Skype for Business solution.

To deploy and manage a Hosted CCE solution, Pure IP needs the following information from your communications architecture.

  • Customer must provide a SAN certificate with two FQDNs issues by a trusted Certificate Authority such as Digicert or GoDaddy
  • Add a DNS entry to your domain zone (typically ap.{domainname}.com)
  • A user account in your Office 365 Tenant with Skype for Business admin privileges (to register the CCE)
  • A test account user with Office 365 Enterprise E5 license (which can be removed after deployment)

Additional Cost Benefits

Microsoft Calling Plans are charged at a “per user” rate for a set number of pooled minutes. As your organization grows beyond 20-25 users, this can be a costly solution to expand your telecommunication services since the E1, E3, and E5 licenses that incorporates the Cloud PBX element and voice plan can costs between £30.00 – £48.00 per user, per month.

In order to better facility savings while your company grows,  Pure IP charges for required base services and actual calling usage.  Our pricing model ensures you only pay for what you use without unplanned overages or excess minutes at the end of the month. Pure IP can demonstrate the savings that can be achieved over the year, based on the number of users and current calling profile.
