Masergy Communications today announced that Telarus Inc. has joined the Masergy Global Partner Program and will provide Masergy's portfolio of MPLS/VPLS and Global Cloud Communications products to global enterprises.
Telarus is a national distributor of commercial voice and data services; the new agreement opens the door for the 1,250 independent agencies that source through Telarus to pre-qualify, recommend and sell Masergy's solutions to their clients.
Masergy launched its Global Cloud Communications service in September and will provide Telarus partners with a hybrid solution that combines elements from its Intelligent SIP Trunking and Hosted Unified Communications products to form a unique, simplified cloud communications migration and deployment plan for each client.
Masergy expects Telarus to enhance its channel. "Telarus has created one of the most diverse and unique distribution channels in the market," said Chuck Ward, Masergy's vice president of channel development. "Their proven ability to sell international MPLS/VPLS, SIP trunking and hosted communications products to medium-to-large enterprises, along with Masergy's extensive consultative and engineering expertise will enable us to jointly compete and win more global network and voice sales opportunities."
At the same time, Telarus believes Masergy's global products will provide Telarus partners with an expanded market reach. "We are especially excited about Masergy's global MPLS network with its integrated hosted UC platform, which will allow our partners to consult on opportunities with multinatinal corporations like never before," said Adam Edwards, president of Telarus.
