CommPartners announced this week an agreement to team with Telstra Inc., the U.S. subsidiary of Australian-based global carrier Telstra Corp. Ltd., to deliver managed voice services to international markets.
Will Hughs, the senior vice president for product and design for Telstra Inc., said his company will use its global IP network to deliver CommPartners hosted applications to multinational customers in markets such as the United States, Hong Kong, Singapore, Japan, India and the United Kingdom. The applications would be sold by Telstra, CommPartners or their respective in-country VARs, Hughs said.
CommPartners offers Linksys One, IP PBX, IP trunking, hosted call center and other IP-based applications for the SMB markets.
In the United States, Telstra Inc. also expects to use CommPartners network for VoIP termination for its multinational clientele, Hughs added.
CommPartners operates a nationwide IP network coverage, applications platforms and is a CLEC in 49 U.S. states and the District of Columbia.
This agreement with Telstra Incorporated demonstrates the intrinsic value of the IP network, business applications, service delivery platforms and CLEC status that CommPartners has established over the last three and a half years, said Dave Clark, co-founder and CEO of CommPartners. Our relationship with Telstra serves as a foundation for growth for both CommPartners and Telstra in the enterprise IP communications markets as we leverage our respective U.S. and global network assets and capabilities and build distribution channels for our services.
Telstra strives to deliver the best possible connectivity on a truly global scale, and we will continually invest in our business operations to best serve our customers, said Andrew Morawski, president and CEO of Telstra Inc. Our complementary networks will enable single, end-to-end, global solutions to be deployed seamlessly across our respective networks.
