Small business telephone systems provider Panasonic (News - Alert) System Communications Company of North America recently selected Telesphere, a provider of cloud communication solutions, as a Panasonic SIP Hosted Preferred Partner. The aim of this new partner program is to provide a complete hosted PBX (News - Alert) solution for customers.
In February, Jive and OnSIP were the first companies to become Panasonic SIP Hosted Preferred Partners. More recently, Panasonic's SIP Endpoints were certified for use with DoubleHorn Communications' cloud-based voice platform, resulting in a fully featured hosted phone service for small and medium-sized businesses.
Telesphere (News - Alert) boasts one of the largest nationwide Cloud Communication Platforms, along with a redundant MPLS network and advanced unified communications product suite. Altogether, this makes the company one of the premier providers of unified communication services — including voice, data, video and collaboration services — for multi-location, enterprise customers.
As a Panasonic SIP Hosted Preferred Partner, Telesphere can add service and support to Panasonic's award-winning lineup of SIP phones to provide hosted phone solutions with predictable costs, a high degree of flexibility, support for multi-site and remote workers, and feature-rich application suites.
"We believe this alliance offers exceptional benefits to all mid-size to large enterprise unified communications customers, especially those with multiple offices and locations," said Jeff Savage, vice president of Strategic Development at Telesphere, in a statement. "It powerfully combines Panasonic's leading-edge devices that are now enabled to take full advantage of Telesphere's support and its secure, national private MPLS network, one of the largest in the nation. It's a winning combination for all parties."
Kim Murtagh, product manager for Communications at Panasonic System Communications Company of North America, added that Telesphere's partnership with Panasonic and its BTS reseller community will result in a complete suite of hosted PBX solutions backed by the "continuous and ongoing support that businesses across the country require to succeed."
