RingCentral Partners with Deutsche Telekom

RingCentral, a provider of cloud communications, video meetings, collaboration, and contact center solutions, is partnering with Deutsche Telekom to transform business communications.

As a first step, the partnership will offer Deutsche Telekom's customers a co-branded version of RingCentral Video (RCV) as a lead stand-alone video solution, which delivers video meetings and team messaging based on RingCentral's leading Message Video Phone (MVP) platform.

With Deutsche Telekom's extensive network presence and RingCentral's deep unified communications as a service (UCaaS) and contact center as a service (CCaaS) capabilities, the partnership will deliver cloud communication solutions.

"For many years, we have been accompanying customers on their way to the cloud. The cooperation with RingCentral adds an important signpost to this," said Hagen Rickmann, managing director of business customers at Telekom Deutschland, in a statement. "Together we will support customers in the introduction of modern business cloud communication solutions. This ensures that people can work productively and efficiently from anywhere—a sustainable contribution to success and growth in a rapidly changing world of work."

"We're looking forward to working closely with Deutsche Telekom to combine their amazing 4G and 5G networks with the world's best cloud-based communications solution that includes team messaging, video meetings, and cloud phone systems, to empower organizations and their people to communicate efficiently with their customers, partners, and other employees," said Anand Eswaran, RingCentral's president and chief operating officer, in a statement.

Deutsche Telekom will introduce the new solution to customers in the second half of this year.
