Appia Communications Inc., a provider of managed communication and network services, which is on a mission to help its customers realize the many benefits of IP technology in a cost-effective manner, has brought Indianapolis within the purview of its managed solutions.

Hence, all office building and campuses in the state that are Appia-connected will not only be able to simplify operations but will also be able to save capital and operating expenses.

Customers can exercise the option to choose between high-speed Internet access, business lines, VoIP phones or SIP trunks, video conferencing, virtual desktop services, and more.
