NTT Com Collaborates with Conexus Mobile Alliance
On Enterprise Smartphone Solutions
NTT Communications (NTT Com) announced today that it has agreed with Conexus Mobile Alliance (Conexus), a cooperative association of Asia-Pacific mobile operators, to deliver comprehensive enterprise smartphone solutions that multinational corporations can use to support their expansion in the Asia-Pacific region.
As part of providing these solutions, NTT Com also will offer consultation on applicable smartphones and tariff plans in countries/regions where Conexus members have a presence.
NTT Com’s solutions will be based on Hosted Exchange package of Global Messaging built with Microsoft® Exchange, the company’s suite of cloud-based enterprise groupware for applications such as webmail, scheduling and file management. Global Messaging is offered under NTT Com’s BizCITY® concept of providing secure access to enterprise services from anyplace at anytime. When used via smartphones, Hosted Exchange package of Global Messaging provides customers with secure, convenient access to office communication applications with minimal time and place constraints. It is particularly ideal for business travelers who require a smart, productive and secure mobile work environment.
Enterprises using Global Messaging can reduce total cost of ownership including startup costs by optionally outsourcing the management and operation of multiple groupware applications and mail servers to NTT Com data centers.
NTT Com began providing Global Messaging solutions on April 1 of this year.
