Tidbits from February 2021

Dialpad and T-Mobile are partnering up for biz comms. T-Mobile believes in the future of AI-powered cloud communications, and contributed to Dialpad’s Series E funding round in 2020. T-Mo also announced WFX, Home Office Internet - fixed 5G/4G broadband. 

 Microsoft rolls out Operator Connect, for voice services in Microsoft Teams. Don't forget that MS also offers CPaaS (dial-tone, SMS and more) via Azure Comms Platform. 

 Contact centers reported a 37% increase in demand during the pandemic via CP news. Explains Genesys having a good year: 800+ new customers during fiscal year 2021.
