Irving, Texas - May 27, 2020 - NEC Corporation of America (NEC), a leading provider and integrator of
advanced IT, communications, networking and biometric solutions, is announcing the general availability of NEC UNIVERGE BLUE® CONNECT, a fully integrated and
born-in-the-cloud UCaaS solution, and NEC UNIVERGE BLUE® ENGAGE, a CCaaS solution for businesses of all sizes.

"Since announcing the new generation of UNIVERGE BLUE last month, we've received overwhelmingly positive feedback from our partner community and existing customer base,"
said Marc Hebner, Vice President of Enterprise Channel, NEC Corporation of America. "Businesses today need the ability to communicate from anywhere at any time, and we

easy to deploy and use, and can support our customers' transition to the cloud."
Early partner feedback on UNIVERGE BLUE CONNECT and ENGAGE is overwhelmingly positive, demonstrating a widespread need for flexible and adaptable solutions that can
support the sudden shift to a distributed workforce.
"Our clients have a pent-up demand for this dynamic delivery model and the migration to the cloud with advanced collaboration applications," said Paul Diesu, CEO of
Forerunner Technologies, one of NEC's national systems integrators and resellers of the UNIVERGE BLUE platform. "This model is unique in comparison to other UCaaS
offerings and allows businesses to better control the end user experience while keeping costs in line."
UNIVERGE BLUE CONNECT and ENGAGE are now generally available for NEC's U.S. Business Channel Partner Community and customers. This announcement represents phase 1 of a
global rollout during 2020 that will ultimately include partners around the globe by 2021.
