Cypress Communications -- the Premier Provider of Hosted VoIP Communications -- Dances with Tango Networks for Fixed-Mobile Convergence Trial
ATLANTA & RICHARDSON, Texas --(Business Wire)-- Cypress Communications, a leader in hosted VoIP solutions, today announced a trial of the Tango Networks fixed-mobile convergence solution, Abrazo(TM). By adding fixed-mobile convergence capabilities to its hosted VoIP solution -- marketed as C4 IP -- Cypress Communications will enable its customers to access C4 IP's advanced calling features and money-saving corporate dialing plans using a single phone number and voice mailbox.
"Increased mobility and accessibility are emerging as top priorities for many small- to mid-sized firms, and we are confident that the integration of our hosted VoIP solution with Tango's fixed-mobile technology will help drive productivity for our customers and enhance their overall communications experience," said Frank Grillo, executive vice president of marketing at Cypress Communications.
"With fixed-mobile convergence, the mobile phone becomes an extension of a company's business communications infrastructure," stated Al Leo, vice president of sales and business development for Tango Networks. "By adding mobility to its solution, Cypress Communications is providing its customers the means to be even more productive, more accessible and more competitive than ever before."
"Firms, especially those in the professional services arena, rely heavily upon mobile communications but have struggled with the ability to meet strict compliance and billing policies when cell phones are used. The Tango-Cypress fixed-mobile trial is the first step toward offering our customers the freedom of mobility and ease of use of unified accessibility -- all while meeting regulatory compliance with full business continuity and back office record keeping -- making Abrazo a perfect companion to our C4 IP solution," added Grillo.
