New Relationship Offers Partners and Customers More Choices and Flexibility for Voice and Data
COSTA MESA, CA, January 20, 2010 - MegaPath, Inc., a leading provider of managed IP data, voice, and security services in North America, today announced during IT EXPO East it has partnered with Aastra USA , a leading company at the forefront of the enterprise communication market, to provide more options for companies looking to implement enterprise-level voice and data solutions. This partnership will enable partners to bundle MegaPath's Duet™ SIP Trunking with Aastra's AastraLink Pro™ 160 IP PBX offerings. This combination provides small-to-medium sized businesses (with multiple branch offices) access to a business-class VoIP service that is both reliable and cost-effective.
"MegaPath and Aastra deliver complementary and affordable VoIP solutions, which can serve the needs of small-to-medium sized businesses," said John Drolet, Vice President of Sales, Indirect Channels and Carriers USA, Aastra USA. "We believe that SIP Trunking is the gateway to larger VoIP adoption, so our hardware and MegaPath's nationwide footprint provide companies a â€˜one-stop shop' for all their voice and data needs."
Duet leverages MegaPath's all-optical MPLS network to deliver a low-cost, high-speed Internet and full-featured voice service bundle that is ideal for small-to-medium sized businesses. Duet includes productivity features found in enterprise voice and data solutions without the staffing requirements or investment in network and telephony needed for customers to deploy their own infrastructure.
"We have a long standing commitment to providing small- to-medium sized businesses with affordable and reliable voice and data solutions that help keep them competitive," said Dan Foster, Chief Sales and Marketing Officer, MegaPath. "These underserved businesses still require enterprise-class solutions, and our partnership with Aastra USA is another way for us to continue providing additional value."
