Acer Octon, a joint venture established in November 2014 by Taiwan-based IT vendor Acer and US-based multimedia application developer Octon, will soon announce the outcomes of talks it has been holding with the three largest telecom carriers in North America about cooperation, according to company president James Sha. Acer Octon has also been making deployments in the China and Southeast Asia markets concerning adoption of abPBX plus, its cloud computing-based IP communication solution for businesses, Sha said.
Acer Octon, a joint venture between Acer and US-based multimedia application developer Octon, demonstrated its new cloud-based PBX business-use communication solution at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2015. The IP solution, dubbed “abPBX Plus,” is able to offer cloud-based services plus advanced communication services such as file sharing, IP voice calls and teleconferencing to clients, according to James Sha, president of Acer Octon.
Acer on October 14 announced a strategic partnership with Octon, a Cayman Islands-registered Taiwan-based provider of contact center software solutions and services, to launch abPBX plus, a communication switch solution for use by enterprises. With the abPBX plus, enterprises can easily use business social networking, chat rooms, video conferencing and other communication services at low cost, Octon said.
