WOW! Business has signed master agent and tech-services distributor Converged Network Services Group (CNSG) as a charter member of its new Partner Alliance program.
“This agreement with CNSG provides a significant boost to our Partner Alliance program and strategic plan to expand our addressable commercial services market,” said Ken Worcester, vice president of channel sales and the indirect channel chief for WOW! Business. “CNSG, a top master agent, has earned a strong reputation for helping business customers efficiently and cost-effectively meet their most complex technology challenges.”
The news comes one week after WOW! named TBI as the first master-agent partner in its program.
CNSG, its partners, subagents and VARs can now offer WOW! Business services that include IP-based network, data, voice and cloud services for midsize business, enterprise and government customers. CNSG, based in North Carolina, has a nationwide network of more than 750 independent partners selling a range of IT, network and communications services to business customers.
WOW! owns and operates more than 40,000 miles of local fiber-optic and coaxial networks in the Southeast, Mid-Atlantic and Midwest which, along with its data centers, the company says, provide customers with scalable, low-latency access to national carrier backbones.
