Bandwidth.com Partners with AltiGen to Offer True SIP Unified Communications Solutions to Small and Medium Business


CARY, N.C., June 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Bandwidth.com, a leading nationwide provider of complete business communications solutions, today announced that it has partnered with AltiGen, a leading provider of SIP Unified Communications platforms, to deliver complete end to end VoIP services and systems affordable to Small Medium Business. This alliance bundles the AltiGen Communications Max 1000 all-in-one SIP platform with Bandwidth.com SIP Trunking. By combining reliable SIP services and feature rich VoIP systems, the product will enable both AltiGen and Bandwidth.com VARs to differentiate their offering from other CPE solutions that lack capabilities, are complex to install, and pricey. The goal of the alliance is to be among the only partners in the industry to offer SIP solutions that have been certified for security and interoperability. In addition, the bundled solution will enable SMB end users to realize the SIP promise: the productivity benefits of unified communications with true cost savings with end-to-end VoIP services.



"The decision to partner with Bandwidth.com and bundle their SIP Trunking services with our Unified Communications equipment proves our commitment to providing our customers and VARs with a more complete, cost-effective, simple to deploy, all-in-one VoIP solution that competes head-to-head with Tier 1 vendors such as Cisco and Avaya," said Jerry Fleming, President and COO of AltiGen. "Not only does Bandwidth.com's SIP Trunking offer a dynamic value proposition due to its ability to extend IP communications from the LAN to the WAN, but it is an extremely low cost replacement for traditional phone lines. We think this is makes our solution very attractive both to our VAR partners and ultimately the end-users."

"As an innovator in VoIP communications solutions for small and medium sized business, AltiGen was a natural fit for our SIP Trunking service," said Nathan Cameron, Vice President of Sales, Bandwidth.com. "We see today's market for business VoIP spurring the evolution of a new type of telecom provider- one that offers technology and services, not as separate products, but rather as one complete solution. Because of that, we are committed to furthering our partner program and AltiGen is an important part of that development. Together we can fully leverage our knowledge, expertise, and resources to offer a truly disruptive communications product to a growing market. This partnership also further strengthens our channel offering by giving both Bandwidth.com and AltiGen VARs a complete package of VoIP services that provide them with more opportunities to sell to their customer base."


AltiGen and Bandwidth.com will be hosting a joint webinar on June 22, 2007 to discuss the benefits of unified voice communications as well as how VARs and customers can take advantage of their joint offering.
