Windstream Partners with AWS for Better Virtual Meeting Experiences


Virtual meetings have become an integral part of modern business as growing hybrid workforces and digital transformations make it possible to communicate from anywhere.

Windstream Communications, a communications and software company, has partnered with Amazon Web Services, Inc. (AWS) to provide users of its Enterprise OfficeSuite Live with a way to meet securely, and on-demand.

OfficeSuite Live provides users with a set of fully redundant data centers to improve the reliability of the meeting solution. It also means there's no downtime due to network outages and malfunctions.

“Teaming OfficeSuite Live with the AWS cloud architecture brings a new level of sophistication to our industry-leading virtual meeting platform, one that demonstrates scale, performance and resilience,” said Austin Herrington, Vice President of Product Management, Windstream Enterprise, “As a result, our customers and their employees and teams will receive the best possible communications experience.”

Windstream Enterprise used Amazon Chime SDK’s WebRTC capabilities to ensure video streaming and sharing was cost effective and simple to implement. It allowed for more flexibility to customize the UI so they could match the OfficeSuite Live look and feel, while providing tools like Amazon Transcribe for Machine Learning and AI.

“Modern businesses are moving decisively to the cloud,” said Art Nichols, Chief Technology Officer, Windstream Enterprise, “and by working with AWS, Windstream Enterprise will be ready to meet our customers there, as a one-stop-shop where they can access all the cloud-based communications tools they need to keep pace with the speed of business.”

“Windstream Enterprise’s comprehensive virtual meeting experience OfficeSuite Live is a clear example of how AWS customers can use our proven infrastructure and unparalleled portfolio of services to reimagine their entire business,” said Sid Rao, General Manager, Amazon Chime SDK at AWS.
