RingCentral, Inc. based in Belmont, California, provides cloud-based communications and collaboration solutions for businesses of any size and in any industry sector. On its web site, RingCentral notes that it’s a company goal to work with its customers “to reimagine the world of business communications and collaboration.”

The company’s world recently got a bit larger with the announcement of the availability of RingCentral Video and RingCentral Rooms in Australia via its subsidiary in that country, RingCentral Australia Pty Ltd. The company has opened new data center to securely store customer data in Australia, which will open its cloud communications and contact center platforms for any organization in Australia. The data center brings RingCentral’s video meetings and cloud phone system in compliance with Australia’s data sovereignty regulations, including the Privacy Act and the Australian Privacy Principles.

“At RingCentral we are focused on enabling organisations to modernise their business communications by moving to the cloud and allowing their people to be productive from anywhere,” said Peter Hughes, regional VP of sales for APAC at RingCentral, in a statement. “With the announcement of RingCentral Video and RingCentral Rooms, we are bringing a more enhanced and collaborative experience with greater security and accessibility for all people – both internal and external to the organization, wherever they are working – be that at home, in the office, or on-the-go.”

In its announcement, RingCentral noted that Australia remains a key strategic location for the company. The new data center will be available on demand and offer RingCentral customers the ability to register endpoints in-country, and keep voice and video call data, including voicemail, call recordings, faxes and call logs, stored locally in Australia.

In addition to announcing the expansion of the company’s product line in Australia, RingCentral also announced that RingCentral Rooms will be compatible with Poly devices including Poly Studio X30 and Poly Studio X50 in region. RingCentral Rooms for Poly is generally available to all customers in Australia and is fully integrated with Poly Studio X30 and Poly Studio X50 plug-and-play USB video bars which bring simplicity, convenience, and a seamless modern meeting experience to physical workspaces, said the company.
