Cisco Webex Calling with AT&T Now Available via Channel

Cloud Collaboration

Partners can sell a new service from Cisco and AT&T. The telco giant and IT behemoth on Tuesday unveiled Webex Calling with AT&T, which gives businesses expanded access to cloud-based phone capabilities.

The companies say the service can help businesses “transform their voice communications” during and after the COVID-19 pandemic.

Rich Shaw is the VP of voice and collaboration for AT&T Business. He notes how business continuity and remote workforce challenges have confronted many businesses head-on in the past two months.

“Until now, many [businesses] haven’t needed the expertise or capabilities to keep critical operations moving in this situation,” said Shaw. “During a time when ‘the office’ is more disparate than ever, Webex Calling with AT&T gives businesses an affordable, flexible tool for staying connected to customers, partners and employees during uncertain times.”
Webex Calling with AT&T is built on the Webex Calling platform. It offers even more ways to connect because it includes access to Webex Teams for business calls, meetings and collaboration.

Customers get free on-network calls and unlimited U.S. domestic toll calling with the service. AT&T says it also enables call routing with access to PSTNs via SIP trunks. That gives businesses a “simple way to integrate data and voice capabilities.”

Webex Calling with AT&T supports businesses with as few as 25 seats.

It has been a busy couple of weeks for AT&T on the new product front. Just days ago, the carrier teamed with Five9 on a new cloud contact service, though partners can’t sell it just yet. AT&T Cloud Contact Center combines contact center functions with AT&T’s global network and portfolio of voice and collaboration tools.
