May 22, 2020

Horizon Telcom, which has been providing telecommunications services in Southern Ohio for 125 years, is taking steps to provide modernized offerings for its enterprises customers that meet the needs of today’s growing business communications landscape. To make this possible, it has announced a partnership with cloud communications platform provider Alianza.

Utilizing its platform, the company is able to provide a new “Horizon Hosted Voice” cloud-based VoIP solution for commercial customers.

 "Alianza's durable, agile cloud platform is well matched with our state-of-the-art fiber network and enables us to launch compelling, innovative new services without the need to build and maintain our own infrastructure," said Craig Drinkhall, Director of Products and Sales Engineering at Horizon.

Horizon has nearly 5,000 route miles of fiber in OH and delivers connectivity solutions for verticals from healthcare to government, education, wireless carriers, and other enterprises.

Glenn Lytle, Chief Revenue Officer for Horizon commented, "We believe Alianza gives us the best voice platform for Horizon to maintain the high-quality expectations our customers have for our products and services."

With the Cloud Communications Platform from Alianza, Horizon can integrate desktop, handsets, and mobile devices under a single platform. It can also launch new, future-proof, and compelling products that meet the needs of today’s business customers.

"Like Horizon, we are a true partner to our customers, and we'll be in lockstep with them in delivering reliable, industry-leading cloud communication solutions for their customers," commented Camille Issa, Vice President of Sales at Alianza. "Our technology, team, and partner ecosystem make for a powerful solution to enable Horizon's success with onboarding and serving customers."

Earlier this year, Alianza announced the opening of its new corporate headquarters after another year of significant growth for the company.  Located in Pleasant Grove, Utah, the space seeks to accommodate Alianza’s growth—which has averaged more than 25 percent per year over the last four years.
