Global Capacity recently announced that its One Marketplace platform would be used in IntelePeer’s CoreCloud SIP trunking service. The platform combines an extensive network infrastructure with applications that manage the pricing and delivery of network connectivity.
Chicago-based Global Capacity provides connectivity-as-a-service (CaaS) that seeks to make buying access networks simple and inexpensive. Its One Marketplace platform provides a carrier-class network well-suited for handling business and service provider needs, while avoiding the problems that come with including consumer traffic. The list of companies using this service includes heavyweights like AT&T, Sprint, Verizon, and Earthlink.
IntelePeer is a San Mateo, California-based company that provides on-demand communications services from the cloud including unified communications and collaboration (UCC) with high definition video and audio. Its CoreCloud SIP service is designed to provide high quality audio while allowing customers to save significantly on communications costs. In addition to quality audio, CoreCloud uses four kilobit public key encryption, the strongest level available, to protect communications from intrusion.
Although talk of SIP trunking is more ubiquitous than snowfall currently in the Rockies, the market for the technology still has a lot of potential for growth. According to an infographic produced by theUCbuyer, only 20 percent of North American businesses use SIP; that total is even smaller for the rest of the world. This leads to a market expected to more than double from its $4.4 billion level in 2014 to $9.35 billion in 2019.
Just as the global SIP market has lots of untapped potential, IntelePeer’s partnering with Global Capacity gives it a larger network with great growth opportunities with access to more than 9.6 million commercial locations in the U.S.
As a result, IntelePeer can be price competitive with its SIP customers, offering them a service that delivers high quality audio and video. This service is monitored non-stop to ensure minimal downtime and uses the same infrastructure that the leading telecoms use. When you have selling points like that, it’s hard to beat the service you offer.
