IntelePeer Inc., a provider of on-demand, cloud-based communications, recently signed an agreement with Chinook Communications to integrate IntelePeer CoreCloud SIP Trunking with hosted Microsoft Lync unified communications deployments offered by Chinook.
With the integration, companies will be able to achieve more effective collaboration and communication, while taking advantage of IntelePeer's SIP Trunking capabilities to deliver seamless, carrier-quality connections.
IntelePeer’s CoreCloud SIP Trunking services combine the voice quality of high-definition (HD) audio with the protection of four kilobit public key encryption. This enhanced security eliminates the need to pay for a dedicated T1 data connection for client’s SIP Trunking connections, enabling them to securely route communications over their main corporate Internet and data connections.
IntelePeer Lync SIP Trunking has been fully qualified for Lync Server 2010 and Lync Online Dedicated in the Microsoft Unified Communications Open Interoperability Program.
"We are seeing a paradigm shift among small and medium-sized businesses from premises-based communications to hosted Microsoft Lync deployments due to the tremendous advantages the cloud offers in terms of flexibility, scale and advanced capabilities," said Steve Schwartz, CEO at Chinook Communications. "IntelePeer has a proven track record of supporting the full range of Microsoft Lync multimedia and collaboration features, ensuring communications are delivered with the highest level of quality and reliability."
"As a Microsoft Lync service provider, Chinook Communications provides small businesses the same level of communications sophistication associated with large corporations – but at a cost an entrepreneur can afford," said Margaret Norton, general manager of Enterprises for IntelePeer. "The combination of our cloud-based SIP trunking connections with hosted Microsoft Lync helps small businesses use their communications system as a revenue-generating asset, instead of a cost center."
In related news, IntelePeer, Inc. recently announced that LiveOps, a company that provides cloud contact center and customer service solutions, has joined IntelePeer's Fluent Federation-as-a-Service (FaaS), which enables enterprises to transform their contact centers into more flexible, reliable, scalable and cost-effective cloud-based contact centers.
