Allworx and Cbeyond Partner Team to Provide Interoperability of Solutions

(Wireless News Via Thomson Dialog NewsEdge)
Allworx and Cbeyond, an IP-based managed service provider for small
businesses, announced interoperability between Allworx' award winning
line of SIP-phones and IP-PBX systems and Cbeyond's SIP Trunking
service, BeyondVoice with SIPconnect.

The combined solution provides the small and medium sized business
(SMB) market with a solution that delivers business-class voice
quality, extensive calling features and significant cost savings.

Cbeyond delivers integrated packages of communications and IT services
to more than 31,000 small businesses across the United States. Its
BeyondVoice with SIPconnect service is an integrated package of local
and long-distance voice, high-speed Internet and mobile services.
Allworx' IP-PBX/Key systems and SIP-phones provide true key system
functionality critical to SMBs transitioning to next generation IP
phone systems.

Together, the two companies are leveraging the SIPconnect specification
to ensure a consistent quality of service, low cost and full-featured
telephony for SIP-based VoIP calls. They are also training and
supporting a mutual set of channel partners to meet the communications
and IT needs of small and medium sized businesses across the United

Allworx combined with Cbeyond's BeyondVoice with SIPconnect service
provides businesses -- requiring as few as four SIP trunks -- with
cost-effective Direct Inward Dial (DID) capabilities; high quality
voice services; and reliable service and support. Channel partners are
leveraging this solution to deliver on-premise equipment and managed
services that include: T1 connections for Internet and email; local and
long distance calling; mobile and BlackBerry services; and applications
such as virus protection, spam blocking, firewalls, secure back up,
file sharing, VPNs, and fax-to-email services.

"Our relationship with Allworx is beneficial on multiple levels,
because we're making our joint customers happy by meeting their
communications and IT needs more effectively, and we're also
simplifying the installation process for channel partners, while
increasing their annuity streams," said Chris Gatch, chief technology
officer for Cbeyond.

"For our channel partners, time is money, and getting users up and
running quickly is paramount," said George E. Daddis, chief executive
officer for Allworx Corp. "By combining our turn-key servers and QoS
solutions with Cbeyond's services, many of our channel partners have
been able to complete robust installations in an hour, a task that once
took days to complete. Beyond the install, our combined offerings
reduce customer churn, ensuring the long-lasting engagements that
strengthen the channel partner's bottom line."
