TalkSwitch Inc. today announced full interoperability between its TalkSwitch 48-CVA telephone systems and Cbeyond Communications BeyondVoice managed service package with SIPconnect service, so small businesses can put in a turnkey package of managed IP communications, including VoIP.
TalkSwitch will provide the intelligent call control at the customer premise with its hybrid IP PBX, while Cbeyond provides the managed applications, including VoIP, security, messaging, collaboration and storage. The solutions are available through the companies channel partners.
Weve been very aggressive in pursuing interoperability with leading-edge service providers like Cbeyond, said Jan Scheeren, president and CEO of TalkSwitch. Were committed to providing our customers with the best solutions on the market, and we think that this is an attractive option for them. Cbeyond shares our commitment to small business, and giving our customers the opportunity to combine the TalkSwitch products they know and trust with a great VoIP service plan like Cbeyonds is very exciting.
