HOUSTON – July 8, 2013 – IntelePeer, Inc., a leading provider of on-demand, cloud-based communications, today announced that IntelePeer CoreCloud SIP trunking services have been qualified for interoperability with Microsoft Lync 2013. IntelePeer is demonstrating the Microsoft-qualified solution at the Microsoft World Partner Conference in Houston, which started on Sunday, July 7, and extends through Thursday, July 11.
With existing qualifications for Lync 2010, this latest qualification allows IntelePeer, a Microsoft partner, to provide a turnkey SIP trunking solution for Microsoft Lync business customers by delivering a seamless connection to any Lync unified communications (UC) deployment, whether deployed on-premise, via hybrid model or delivered as a cloud-based hosted service. Microsoft has determined that IntelePeer CoreCloud SIP trunking services, available through the company’s channel partners, are consistent and supportable in accordance with Microsoft’s rigorous standards.
In addition, IntelePeer is launching new enhanced IntelePeer CoreCloud™ UC SIP Trunking Bundles for services specifically packaged for hosted unified communications providers. The new UC bundles are pre-packaged and qualified for service providers to support hosted UC services based on Microsoft Lync and other UC vendor solutions.
“IntelePeer CoreCloud UC SIP trunking has been deployed to support thousands of Lync unified communications users, clear evidence of the tremendous value we deliver for small, medium and large enterprises,” said Margaret Norton, CMO for IntelePeer. “This qualification for Microsoft Lync 2013 gives Microsoft Lync partners confidence that our UC SIP trunks support the full range of Lync features and deployment options to deliver a premium, full-featured communications experience.”
IntelePeer’s new UC SIP trunking bundles for hosted providers offer pre-defined bundles of phone numbers, voice minutes, services and support, which allow a hosted UC provider to roll out predictable, cost-effective hosted UC packages for businesses
that combine comprehensive features at an attractive cost. By offering hosted UC providers with fixed costs, IntelePeer empowers them to pass on predictable fixed-price packages to their business customers, either in a month-to-month package, or provided on a discounted, longer-term basis.
“We are seeing tremendous demand for cloud-based hosted UC services connected by the most advanced UC SIP trunking services at attractive, predictable fixed-price packages that can quickly scale to any business need,” said David Spears, CEO of GeniSys Global, a Microsoft Lync partner that provides hosted unified communications as a service. “IntelePeer’s new UC SIP trunking bundles promise to reduce the time, cost and complexity involved in rolling out hosted UC services that deliver maximum value to our customers and support the most advanced UC features.”
