CHANNEL PARTNERS Airband Communications (Booth #338) says its channel program grew by more than 100 percent in 2011 and sales by its top 10 agents increased 120 percent collectively last year.
Making the announcement at the Channel Partners Conference & Expo, Airband’s agents say the spike is due to record-high demand for Airbands voice and data services, including Internet, VoIP and business continuity solutions that are delivered on Airbands wholly owned, fixed-wireless network.
The company says its fixed-wireless network bypasses the local phone and cable infrastructure so customers dont have to worry about downtime that can be caused by cable cuts or natural disasters. In addition, Airband customers can leverage the flexibility of fixed-wireless to upgrade bandwidth within hours, rather than waiting weeks for traditional providers to adjust their service. Airband also says it provides unique benefits to companies that need to move office locations within a short amount of time because its wireless infrastructure puts broadband over the air and is not constrained by last-mile network availability of wireline service providers.
Airbands top 10 agents for 2011, based on sales performance, are: eXemplify Group; RealCom Associates; TeleConsult Solutions; Aligned Communications; City Communications Integrated; Pro Technology Solutions; Zoom Communications; Telarus; World Telecom Group; and Sandler Partners.
The flexibility of Airbands architecture, the scalability of their voice and data services and their willingness to offer a customized approach makes them a clear choice for many of our clients,” said Robert Hayes, chief executive officer of eXemplify Group. By pairing customer service with a reliable IT infrastructure, Airband delivers the high-quality voice and data services that eXemplifys clients demand, all within a cost structure that benefits our clients bottom line.”
In one of its largest channel partner deals of 2011, Airband worked with eXemplify to install a 450-seat hosted VoIP and Internet access solution for a business center owner whose seven properties previously operated on separate networks served by multiple providers.
