SoTel Systems announced today the launch of its new nationwide cloud-based business VoIP service using Metaswitch Networks as their chosen platform. This offering is designed to enable customers to affordably move their phone system out of the closet and into the cloud.
SoTel will offer their customers a choice of industry leading IP phones from Polycom, Mitel, and Snom, which are all certified through Metaswitch’s Mosaic Program. The affordable service is sold through its agent and wholesale community throughout the United States. Early customers have saved over 50% versus what they are currently paying, while increasing their features to include a full unified communications suite.
The flexibility of the product offering allows customers to only pay for the features they need and want, making this an affordable solution for any size and type of institution or business. “While leveraging the Metaswitch platform, SoTel brings together our 33 years of expertise in premise based phone systems and SIP trunking to deliver a solution that is both affordable and effective,” said Matt Siemens, EVP of Sales and Marketing at SoTel Systems.
Moving to the cloud with SoTel can eliminate or minimize all capital expenditure requirements for customers needing to upgrade their phone system.
“We serve the Metaswitch community today. This enhances our ability to deliver solutions and we understand day one how to integrate service, phones, and equipment to satisfy the needs of our customers,” Siemens continued.
“Metaswitch welcomes SoTel Systems into our community of service providers,” said Bob Harvey, vice president of sales at Metaswitch. “SoTel’s distributed IP-based infrastructure, including the Perimeta Session Border Controller, gives their customers a reliable and elegant solution for their unified communication needs.”
