Hosted Cloud Connector Edition (CCE)

The Flexible Service and Cost-Effective Solution for Cloud Connector Edition (CCE)

What is Cloud Connector Edition?

Microsoft Skype for Business Cloud Connector Edition (CCE) is an appliance or on-premise server based solution that allows customers to easily connect any existing telephone circuit to Cloud PBX in Office 365. With this deployment, it allows the user’s phone capability to be managed out of Office 365 while their phone calls, number, and PSTN provider remains the same.

The Challenges: When Companies Transitioning All Their Voice Services to Office 365 Cloud:

  • Microsoft currently only supports PSTN calling in 9 countries. If you are in a country outside of the supported countries Hybrid is the only solution.
  • The user based pricing model of Microsoft is not competitive for large organizations
  • Not all the necessary PBX replacement functionality is in the Microsoft Cloud PBX to meet the needs of more complex telephony users.
  • A poor support model for resolving porting issues and voice quality issues in an effective manner.

There are also cost benefits for many enterprise customers. For instance, Pure IP charge you for required base services and actual calling usage instead of the “per user” rate for a set number of pooled minutes which can get expensive as your organization scale. As your organization grows more than 20-25 users, this can be a costly solution to expand your telecommunication services since the E1, E3, and E5 licenses that incorporate the Cloud PBX element and voice plan can cost between $39.00 – $63.00 per user, per month.
