Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise (ALE) has joined forces with Nuvola Distribution to introduce the Alcatel-Lucent Rainbow Hub, a cloud-based communications platform, to the UK market. 

Nuvola, known for its tech distribution, will be distributing the Unified-Communications-as-a-Service (UCaaS) platform that integrates ALE's popular UC and PBX solutions.

The Rainbow Hub communication platform lets businesses use phone services without needing physical phone systems on their premises. This means they don't have to worry about maintaining or updating those systems on-site.

ALE Partners With Nuvola: Additional Insight

Michael Lloyd, Managing Director, Nuvola Distribution, commented:

"Rainbow Hub is ideal for our reseller partners who wish to expand their telecoms and unified communications beyond other available platforms. They can now easily deploy and manage customers through Rainbow’s user-friendly admin interface, without the need for expensive training or upskilling. Another major benefit is that only one invoice per customer is required based on licensing and traffic."

Moussa Zaghdoud, EVP, Cloud Communications Business Division at Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise, noted:

"Rainbow Hub is a reliable, feature-rich, and secure UCaaS solution that is well-positioned to meet the needs of businesses that are increasingly adopting cloud-based communications solutions. We are pleased to see our long-standing partnership with Nuvola Distribution continue to grow in the UK and Ireland. Their unique approach to delivering solutions ensures that our customers benefit from Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise products as well as highly attentive engineering and technical support."

ALE-Nuvola Partnership: Background

This partnership follows ALE's previous alliance with RingCentral that ended in March, leading to the launch of Rainbow Hub in July. ALE's Rainbow Hub focuses on providing end-to-end encrypted cloud-based solutions, accessible across platforms including iOS, Android, PC, Mac, and the web.

Nuvola's long-standing relationship with ALE spans across various products, encompassing voice, networking, and wireless solutions. Nuvola also partners with other industry leaders such as 8×8 Aver, RingCentral, Poly, and Zoom.

Additionally, ALE recently launched Rainbow Telephony for Microsoft Teams connector, an enhancement that integrates seamlessly with Microsoft Teams, offering features like call management, conferencing, and call barring. This ensures a smooth transition to cloud telephony without disruptions, promoting user flexibility and efficiency.
