Airband Channel Sales Grow by More Than 100 Percent in 2011
DALLAS & LAS VEGAS --(Business Wire)--
Airband Communications (News - Alert), the largest fixed-wireless voice and data
provider for businesses in the U.S., announced today that sales in its
Channel Program grew by over 100 percent, and sales by its top 10 agents
increased 120 percent collectively during 2011. Agents report that the
increase in sales is due to record-high demand for Airband's voice and
data services, including Internet, VoIP and business continuity
solutions that are delivered on Airband's wholly owned, fixed-wireless
Because Airband's fixed-wireless network bypasses the local phone and
cable infrastructure, customers don't have to worry about downtime that
can be caused by cable cuts or natural disasters. In addition, Airband
customers can leverage the flexibility of fixed-wireless to upgrade
bandwidth within hours, rather than waiting weeks for traditional
providers to adjust their service. Airband also provides unique benefits
to companies that need to move office locations within a short amount of
time because its wireless infrastructure puts broadband over the air and
is not constrained by last-mile network availability of wireline service
Airband's 2011 top 10 agents based on sales performance are: eXemplify
Group; RealCom Associates, LLC; TeleConsult Solutions, LLC; Aligned
Communications, LLC; City Communications Integrated, LLC; Pro Technology
Solutions, Inc.; Zoom Communications, LLC; Telarus (News - Alert), Inc.; World Telecom
Group; and Sandler Partners.
"The flexibility of Airband's architecture, the scalability of their
voice and data services and their willingness to offer a customized
approach makes them a clear choice for many of our clients," said Robert
Hayes, chief executive officer of eXemplify Group. "By pairing customer
service with a reliable IT infrastructure, Arband delivers the
high-quality voice and data services that eXemplify's clients demand,
all within a cost structure that benefits our clients' bottom line."
In one of its largest channel partner deals of 2011, Airband worked with
eXemplify to install a 450-seat hosted VoIP and Internet access solution
for a business center owner whose seven properties previously operated
on separate networks served by multiple providers.
The business center was looking to find a single-provider solution that
could serve its voice and data needs because it wanted to eliminate the
inefficient process of dealing with multiple service providers,
inconsistent service and the frustration of processing and paying
numerous invoices across its seven properties. To solve these problems,
Airband upgraded voice services in all seven business centers, which
totaled 450 seats at the time, and increased bandwidth 10-fold to 100MB
for several locations, all while lowering overall costs.
"Airband is dedicated to providing high-performance, highly scalable
voice and data solutions that effortlessly keep pace with customers'
growth because we eliminate the worry over bandwidth or network
availability," said Tom Lane, channel director at Airband. "Our Channel
Program's explosive sales growth during the past year demonstrates that
Airband is delivering products and services that have a meaningful and
positive impact on business and the agent community. We look forward to
further expanding the relationships with our partners in 2012."
Airband serves 17 markets across the U.S. including Atlanta; Austin;
Baltimore; Dallas; Des Moines; Fort Lauderdale; Fort Worth; Houston; Las
Vegas; Los Angeles; Miami; Orange (News - Alert) County, Calif.; Philadelphia; Phoenix;
San Antonio; San Diego and Washington, D.C.
