Customers and VARS now able to Preview Mitel Solutions in Live Environment
CARY, N.C. and HERNDON, Va., June 11 // - Bandwidth.com, a leading nationwide provider of complete business communications solutions, today announced that it will be powering all Mitel(R) Solution Centers across the country enabling customers and VARS to preview innovative solutions, including SIP Trunking technology in a live environment. Mitel operates solution centers in five locations; Chicago, Costa Mesa, Atlanta, New York and Herndon (Virginia), all of which will be equipped with Bandwidth.com's SIP Trunking VoIP solution by the end of June.
In conjunction with this project, Edgewater Networks, Inc. and Ingate(R) Systems, both Mitel partners, are providing hardware equipment for the solution centers. Both devices are certified by Bandwidth.com and Mitel for SIP Trunking and offer additional features necessary in most customer installations. Bandwidth.com has been a Mitel partner since September 2006, bundling its IP Trunking technology along with Mitel's industry-leading Unified Communications solutions for the enterprise businesses market throughout the U.S.
"Solution centers are an invaluable way for us to showcase our Unified Communications to customers and partners," said Dan Mondor, president, Mitel. "Bandwidth.com enables us to show our market leading SIP capabilities in action while allowing customers to experience product firsthand the real-world business benefits our solutions deliver."
"Mitel is one of our strongest partners and we believe the benefit of showing prospects how our software and hardware work together is a tremendous selling point," said Nathan Cameron, vice president of sales for Bandwidth.com. "Our SIP Trunking product provides a simple end-to-end SIP VoIP connection to a business' network of carrier gateways, eliminating the need for additional hardware to convert voice traffic to VoIP. The ability to show the technology in the solution center further validates the significance for businesses."
IP Trunking simplifies the customer's network infrastructure by converging all local, long distance, private voice and data traffic onto a resilient IP / MPLS backbone-allowing traffic to flow both inside and outside of the enterprise. The service replaces ISDN PRI (Primary Rate Interface) facilities without compromising business-critical features or network reliability that businesses depend upon. Bandwidth.com's SIP Trunking product is unique in that it allows a business to oversubscribe each VoIP trunk; this enables any company to purchase trunks only for the number of concurrent calls they support, rather than buying one for each individual employee.
