)) today announced that the VoIP Service Providers channel, sponsored by Smoothstone IP
Communications, has been launched as the 108th addition to the TMCnet channel program.

In addition, visitors can find valuable resources such as feature articles, industry news, video case studies, a recently released white paper introducing Converged Communications as a Service (CCaaS) and a VoIP communications total cost of ownership (TCO
TMCnet’s channels are micro-targeted information portals where readers can find topic-specific news, articles, feature stories and product reviews. TMCnet currently features more than 70 channels covering important topics in the IP Communications, VoIP, IP Telephony, CRM, Call Center and Information Technology industries.
“Smoothstone is pleased to join forces with TMC, the communications and technology media leader,” said Russ Maney, Vice President Marketing at Smoothstone. “Taking advantage of TMCnet’s credibility and expertise in driving traffic will reinforce our branding and distinguish Smoothstone as the leading VoIP solutions and services provider in the market today.”
Smoothstone provides a portfolio of fully managed IP communication solutions, delivered as services from its central platform and over its private, converged and nationwide network. To deliver these services, the company uses a professional services approach, which results in a unique set of solutions for each of its mid-sized enterprise clients. This includes understanding each client’s unique needs and then collaboratively creating solutions to fit them.
However, designing and implementing communication solutions is just part of Smoothstone’s services. They then fully manage these solutions for their clients, which frees up client IT staffs to concentrate on business-related projects, instead of communication systems management and maintenance. This end-to-end, ongoing management and support, combined with the higher efficiency of delivering communication solutions as services, results in a lower total cost of ownership (TCO) for Smoothstone’s clients.
“TMCnet welcomes Smoothstone’s VoIP Service Providers channel into our program,” stated Rich Tehrani, TMC President. “They are a well-respected VoIP company that shares our vision in the advancement of new technologies. Our channel program is a community-building vehicle that assists our partners in building their brand, while contributing to the vast array of valuable content which drives traffic to TMCnet, the most-visited communications and technology Web site in the world.”

TMCnet is viewed by more than one million unique visitors every month representing 18 million page views, according to WebTrends, and saw nearly two million visitors in January 2007.
