NeoNova leverages Google Apps to reach new subscribers with 15 service providers converting to the cloud
RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C., Oct. 27, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — NeoNova Network Services, an industry leader in managed broadband services, has seen significant growth in the demand for quality broadband cloud services and has added 15 new broadband service providers to the NeoNova customer base in 2011.
New customers come from a wide range of geographies with telcos from 11 states including Ill., Ind., Kan., Mich., Neb., N.H., N.M., Okla., Ore., Texas, and Va. The companies range from a small Tribal property in New Mexico to a large regional service provider serving nearly 10,000 square-miles in Oklahoma.
The advent of the Internet and the expansion of broadband into rural communities now allow these communities to compete at the same level as their more urban peers. Regional service providers now must deliver high-speed access to broadband at the same level of high-quality services as the larger national telcos. With Google Apps now in use by more than 40 million people worldwide, smaller telcos have the opportunity to give their subscribers a world-class platform without investing in new hardware or infrastructure.
“Google represents innovation to the business community, and NeoNova provides the essential customer service and direct contact with local telcos,” said Ray Carey, CEO of NeoNova. “In the end, the real chocolate and peanut butter moment was combining the powerful innovation machine of Google with the legendary customer service of our with independent telco partners.”
Google Apps is integrated with NeoNova’s NovaSubscriber provisioning platform to add significant value by enabling multi-tier administration support, customizable branding, parent/child relationships with email, archive capability, account deletion requirements, password requirements, and Single Sign-On (SSO) capability. In addition, NeoNova developed a suite of customized data migration tools to make the transition to Google virtually seamless for both the ISP and the end user.
Cloud services are rapidly becoming the standard for many applications and businesses. Forrester reports that the global public cloud market is growing from $25.5 billion in 2011 to $159.3 billion in 2020. NeoNova’s growth can be attributed to several trending factors such as the growing acceptance of cloud computing, the emergence of integrated platforms with smartphones (Android), and the increased consumption of broadband.
“The value of using NeoNova as our platform to for not only email, but for all the other services our end-users need is powerful,” said Kelly Johnson, Data Communications Manager at Pioneer Communications in Ulysses, Kan. “They take the complexity out of delivering a complete solution to our customers and keep us innovative with a constantly changing broadband landscape.”
