Integra Signs Agreement with Agent Alliance

February 13, 2014

Integra has signed an agreement with the Agent Alliance and is now working with the Alliance's network of industry key influencers and leaders.

Agent Alliance is an industry consortium of telecom and IT companies with a focus on cloud services and Integra provides fiber-based, carrier-grade networking, communications and technology solutions.

Businesses in this network will gain access to Integra's enterprise-grade product portfolio and its long-haul and metro fiber networks on behalf of their customers.

"The agreement between Integra and Agent Alliance is a testament to the strength and diversity of our partner program," said Tom Gorey, vice president, indirect channel for Integra. "This expands our access to key markets through the Agent Alliance's trusted supply chain, while supporting its agents with a comprehensive portfolio of enterprise solutions for robust network services and cloud connectivity.”

Integra now gets a chance to work with the eighteen alliance member agencies across the nation. This partnership was formed because Integra boasts comprehensive product and service portfolio and has presence in enterprise markets.

"We've recently realigned and streamlined ourselves to better reflect the industry's changing environment and enhance our focus on cloud services," said Bill Power, Agent Alliance CEO. "Adding Integra to our provider portfolio serves that mission well. I'm very pleased to bring Integra's well respected solutions and service offerings to our members and trust that both organizations will enjoy a profitable and productive relationship."

Integra was in news last month for enabling a long-haul fiber optic network route directly connecting Salt Lake City to Sacramento.

This network will deliver high-bandwidth, low-latency transport to Integra metro networks in those cities as well as Reno and the San Francisco Bay Area.

Integra is increasing bandwidth by providing a direct east-west connection from Northern California through Nevada into Utah. The company’s high-speed backbone offers maximum transport efficiency for wide area networks, private cloud and hybrid cloud infrastructures.
