Vodacom One Net Business is the next evolution towards a truly converged fixed and mobile telephony service.
Vodacom One Net Business is a cloud-based, unified communication solution that seamlessly integrates your fixed and mobile telephony services across any device. Making or receiving a call in the office on an IP phone and continuing that same call by 'pulling' the call to a cellphone, tablet or desktop device, without a break in transmission, is now a reality.
Because all this integration occurs in the cloud, the service removes the need for on-premise PBX equipment. This allows employees to work effectively, whether in the office or out and about. The One Net Business mobile and desktop apps allow for team collaboration through features like chat, peer-to-peer video conferencing, presence information, screen and content sharing. Best of all, One Net Business enables working within a pay-as-you-grow model housed on our secure, managed network.
When it comes to data storage for business, physical servers are often under-utilised, with as little as 20% being used at any given time. This is a necessary 'wastage' to allow for future growth. But Vodacom's Virtual Hosting with Cloud Management is fully adaptable to your business's storage needs at the present moment. It's a dedicated virtual web or application server that gives you a complete and robust IT cloud platform.
Vodacom understands how important it is for your business to always be available and responsive, and that's exactly what Virtual Hosting with Cloud Management offers you. It also allows you to manage your resources remotely, giving you control and convenience.
You've invested many hours and a great deal of money to make sure your business delivers on everything your customers expect – and more. But what about the things you didn't expect to have to worry about, such as online security? That's what the Vodacom Security Solutions Suite is for: to ensure your business is never under threat from problematic email, spam, viruses, data theft, fraud or malicious behaviour.
