Telarus Inc. said it has entered into a strategic partnership with Fonality.
Fonality will become a premiere PBX equipment vendor within the Telarus VAR Network, and have access to telecom contracts when Telarus equipment customers need broadband and voice service, Telarus said.
Telarus created the VAR Network in 2003 as a way to connect its agents to the thousands of telecom equipment manufactures and dealers throughout the country. Since then more than 2,000 VARs have been receiving equipment leads from Telarus marketing agents and consultants in return for telecom service leads, the company said.
More than 2,500 companies with 53,000 phones in 50 countries have adopted Fonality’s PBXtra IP-PBX and placed more than 130 million VoIP and traditional calls, the company said.
