SIP Provider AireSpring Chosen for Top Channel Program
By Amy Tierney, TMCnet Web Editor
A Van Nuys, Calif.-based telecommunications provider announced today that it was selected as a Top 50 Channel Program by a telecommunications industry publication.
, one of the fastest-growing U.S. telecom carriers, with more than three billion call records processed every year, was selected from among hundreds of carries, resellers, master agencies and hardware and software vendors that entered their channel programs for a top spot.
The company was recognized for its “exceptional service to the channel.” AireSpring (News
) was chosen for inclusion in a Top 50 Channel Program by nearly 1,000 indirect sales partners.
AireSpring, a privately held, full service communications company, offers market-leading long-distance, local, data and next-generation SIP trunking solutions that provide companies with tailored, cost effective services. SIP
trunking is a service offered by Internet telephony service providers so that businesses can adopt VoIP using their Internet connection. That way, users can communicate with others who rely on the PSTN, since the enterprise IP-PBX (News
) is connected to the service provider’s PSTN gateways over the Internet.
Currently, the company has the record
for more Telecom Association awards - 11 in all - than any other carrier or reseller, TMCnet reported. In March, the firm honored
AireSpring with a Members’ Choice Award as the top “SIP Trunking” Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) provider.
Earlier this year, AireSpring made headlines when it launched
a toll-free, reservation-free conferencing solution that officials said would reduce travel and other expenses for companies seeking savings. Company officials said the so-called “AireConference
” offering was developed because more and more business customers were seeking to reduce their travel budgets and carbon footprints.
AireSpring’s AireConference solution can help meeting organizers identify and mute noisy callers through an online Web portal, without muting the entire conference, a handy feature during most conference calls. The technology also gives users a secure experience, blocking new calls after those who are expected join the call.
