TelAgility Partners with AT&T for Managed Communications Services
October 22, 2015
TelAgility has announced a partnership with AT&T to offer managed internet services and MPLS private network transport solutions to Unified Communications (News - Alert) as a Service (UCaaS) providers.
The biggest reason for the partnership was AT&T’s national presence and partner program, as well as its robust network.
"As a 50-state interconnected communications services provider, at TelAgility we are constantly striving to remain on the cutting-edge of innovation in order to provide UCaaS integrators with the most advanced offerings," Adam Cole, TelAgility founder and CEO, said. "AT&T (News - Alert) was a clear choice to continue expanding our team of partners as they share our dedication towards the continual advancement of technology and communications services. TelAgility is an excellent choice for any integrator looking for modern, packaged communications solutions whereby we assume all billing, tax and regulatory compliance responsibilities while providing the highest level of innovative services available.”
TelAgility’s other partners include Avaya (News - Alert) and Westcon group.
AT&T will provide managed internet services and MPLS private network transport services for value added resellers to bundle into their own offerings. This allows them to offer UCaaS as part of their services without having to handle the details of billing and the complicated taxes and tariffs that communications services entails.
It’s dealing with these taxes and regulations that a lot of smaller VARs find daunting. With the AT&T partnership, VARs will have the ability to offer robust communications services backed by a major telco. This will make them more competitive when offering their own UCaaS services.
The partnership shows how managed services are becoming attractive to businesses, simply because the provider does most of the hard work of setting up these systems for them. Many businesses are moving as much of the infrastructure that would sit in data centers into the cloud, simply because it’s so much cheaper and easier than doing it themselves, including business communication.
