IntelePeer SIP Trunking Lands Allworx Certification

By Steve Anderson Contributing SIP Trunking Report Writer

When many enterprises start looking for cloud-based communications systems, one place that many turn to is IntelePeer, makers of the IntelePeer CoreCloud SIP trunking system. Now, there's a whole new reason to do just that, as the CoreCloud SIP trunking system just got a little more versatile on the strength of a new certification.

More specifically, IntelePeer's CoreCloud SIP trunking system got its certification with the Allworx communications systems line, with services therein ranging from IP phones to software offerings, which in turn allows businesses—according to Allworx's director of business development Thomas Elliott—to bring in SIP trunking as an over-the-top (OTT) service. This further allows for the rapid integration of new features as said features become available to offer.

IntelePeer's SIP trunking service can be brought into a business' operation, according to reports, in less than a week, which makes it a whole lot faster to bring in Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) and Unified Communication (UC) deployments. This reduces the time and resources required to put the services in play, making the services in question more valuable and able to more rapidly show a return on investment. But IntelePeer isn't just about speed in deployment; there's also the matter of what its CloudWorx platform can bring to bear. CloudWorx also offers both high-definition video and audio between businesses, which makes it a great boost to UC solutions like those offered by Allworx. IntelePeer also brings in some “unique redundancy options,” according to Elliott, that make the overall system more reliable and, from there, better.

The value proposition is clear here on both sides of the equation. Not only does IntelePeer get a whole new system on which to work, which in turn opens up new markets for those who favor Allworx material, but Allworx gets a new offer for its own customers, or those who Allworx would like to count as customers. Both sides get to appeal to new markets and make a case for purchase, which is improved by the involvement of the other party. With the growing interest overall in the market for UC products and services, for VoIP matters, and in general new kinds of cloud-based communications, Allworx working with IntelePeer should end up nicely for all concerned. Both companies here can essentially take advantage of a rising tide to offer up a better overall profile.

While only time will tell just how well the IntelePeer involvement in Allworx works to get new parties interested, it's a safe bet that both companies will find the overall result a very welcome one.
