MicroCorp announced earlier this month that it would begin a partnership with IntelePeer that will allow its systems integrators and resellers to provide the IntelePeer CoreCloud SIP trunking service to business partners and clients.
What this will give to MicroCorp, a distributor of telecom services, is a chance to sell an SIP-based product that is certified with a number of major unified communications platforms including Microsoft Lync, Avaya, Cisco, and several others. Clients can also benefit from pricing models meant to fit their needs as small, medium-size, or large businesses along with encryption that will mask their communications through the SIP trunk. Phil Keenan, the president of MicroCorp, spoke about those capabilities in the statement he provided for the partnership announcement.
“IntelePeer’s SIP trunking service is a great addition to the MicroCorp portfolio, offering a vital component to deliver a seamless unified communications experience,” Keenan said. “IntelePeer’s flexible pricing packages combined with certified support for all the major communications platforms, brings tremendous business value to our partners and their end-users.”
The IntelePeer CoreCloud platform won a 2014 Unified Communications Product of the Year award from TMC last year for its excellence in the field of communications. At the time of that award announcement, Rich Tehrani, the CEO of TMC, noted that the judges were impressed with IntelePeer's “ingenuity and excellence.” He also called the CoreCloud platform “groundbreaking.”
That is the type of product that MicroCorp will be taking into the field. It will now have the ability to leverage a product which has obvious appeal for businesses that have a need for a secure communications service that can easily integrate with a number of other products from UC vendors in the field. Clients that already have Lync or Cisco setups, for instance, will not need to drop their dedication to those products just to embrace the CoreCloud. That universality goes a long way toward impressing current and future clients, and now MicroCorp will be able to show off those skills on behalf of IntelePeer.
