FluidOne has linked up with 8x8 as a distributor for the US vendor's cloud comms services.
"This partnership adds 8x8 on net to Platform One, allowing channel partners to combine FluidOne connectivity, at layer3, layer2 or with a vCore (virtual core) network, with 8x8 and over the top services," said Russell Horton, CEO, FluidOne.
FluidOne’s software defined national fibre network Platform One interconnects the services of Ethernet carriers, cloud service, data centre, mobile operator and broadband suppliers.
Lee Rossano, Head of Channel, FluidOne, added: "FluidOne, supported by 8x8, have heavily invested in the setup and training of the UC proposition.
"8x8 allows our partners to support the 10-50 seat market but is particularly strong in the over 50 seat and contact centre markets."
