Telesphere Creates One-of-a-Kind Business Solution With Help From Partners

By Carrie Schmelkin, TMCnet Web Editor

Telesphere, a nationwide cloud communications service provider with customers in more than 44 states, has been able to hone a one-of-a-kind business solution and it has its partnerships and the Telesphere (News - Alert) ecosystem to thank for that, according to officials.

“The Telesphere ecosystem provides an ultimate end-to-end cloud-based communications solution for our growing network of Channel Partners to market and sell, allowing them to ‘hook their wagon’ to a growing and financially sound partner in Telesphere,” said Clark Peterson, CEO of Telesphere, in a statement. “In the past five years we have secured $50 million in funding from first tier venture capitalists. Telesphere has also been able to attract the support of market leading technology partners while building our management team.”

“By teaming with all of the right technology and investment partners we’re able to deliver an unsurpassed, cutting edge communications solution to businesses of all sizes across the United States, and provide agents and distributors with a solution that they can confidently take to their customers,” he added.

Small and medium businesses can enjoy a variety of service and features typically only available to larger corporations because of Telesphere’s offerings and they can do so without the cost, hassle and limitations of traditional systems, according to officials. Since its inception in 2000, Telesphere has become the “ideal partner” for agents and distributors of communications services across the United States, according to company officials.

According to Peterson, Telesphere has changed how businesses think about telecommunications and has “paved the path of cloud communications.”

“Our diverse technology partner ecosystem provides our channel partners and agents with saleable and scalable communications solutions that almost sell themselves to business, finance and IT decision-makers,” he said.

Telesphere’s business solution, partner network and technology ecosystem – based upon best of breed, best in class technology  – was created because the cloud communications service provider selected key hardware suppliers and utilized elite carrier partners such as Level 3, Global Crossing (News - Alert) and XO Communications.

The cloud communications company is currently certified with a mix of leading technology platform partners including session border control specialist Acme Packet (APKT), softswitch leader Broadsoft (BSFT) and fixed mobile communications solutions provider Varaha.

In 2009 when Telesphere took control of Unity Business Networks, the company created an “unsurpassed cloud-based communications solution” for businesses, backed by a custom designed back office system tailored to the needs of the hosted business communications customer. 

 “Cloud-based hosted voice and communications services, unified communications (UC) and fixed mobile convergence (FMC) are all quickly becoming part of what’s needed by growing and evolving businesses,” said Peterson. “As a result of the company we’re keeping, Telesphere is changing the way businesses communicate. Our channel partners can confidently offer the highest quality blend of solutions, with the widest suite of advanced features and services, all developed through alliances and partnerships with the highest echelon of technology providers.”

In other Telesphere news, the cloud communications company recently attended the 2011 Channel Partners Conference & Expo held in Las Vegas March 13-15. More than 3000 participants convened at the event for what critics are referring to as the “best show ever."
