“C&W Business has been offering UCaaS since 2015, leveraging multiple platforms such as Cisco BroadSoft, Cisco Hosted Collaboration Solutions and Metaswitch to cater to several segments,” said Sebastian Menutti, Frost & Sullivan industry principal. “On the strength of its offerings, it emerged as the fastest-growing Service Provider in the Caribbean and Latin America region in terms of UCaaS revenue and users in 2019. With a long history of telecommunications service in many countries in CaCar, C&W Business enjoys strong brand recognition across the region, especially in Panama, Jamaica, and Trinidad.”
“C&W Business is grateful for this industry recognition as we strive to simplify our customers’ transition to end-to-end, Cloud-delivered UCaaS services as part of their digital transformation journey. The health contingency has validated our vision to help our customers accelerate the adoption of Real-Time Communications services to the Cloud while securing Business continuity and enabling remote collaboration”, says Chris Coles, VP, Chief Commercial Officer of Business Markets.

“C&W Business has added advanced video collaboration capabilities to our solution suite to accelerate the migration of our customers to more advanced services,” noted Menutti. “In the near future, C&W Business will continue to build its software-defined networking in a wide area network (SD-WAN) capability to ease secured access and lower costs for its UCaaS users.”
