Telecommunications wholesaler and franchisor, Telcoinabox, has struck a reseller deal with VoIP provider, Engin, to supply SIP trunks, consumer Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) services and a hosted PBX solution to businesses.
The white-label products will be available to all of Telcoinabox’s 110 service providers nationally by April 2011.
“While VoIP and hosted PBX technology is not new, adoption to date has been strongest among residential and enterprise markets and slow among SMEs, which is our service providers’ major market,” says Telcoinabox CEO Paul Line.
After an extensive review of potential wholesale vendors, Engin was selected for its platform, clear development upgrade path, full B2B connectivity for provisioning and service management and flexibility to white-label.
The two companies are in the process of identifying additional opportunities to work together, including joint venture arrangements. Services will initially be delivered over Telcoinabox’s existing ADSL2+ and SHDSL network and will migrate to the National Broadband Network when available.
The platform for the VoIP products is Broadsoft and hardware and Customer Premises Equipment (CPE) will be provided by Cisco, Netcomm and Polycom.
