CIS Joins Forces with Accelerated Concepts

By Alicia Young

Corporate IT Solutions (CIS) is known for providing expertise in best-of-breed IT infrastructure technologies for multi-site organizations. Its consultative approach makes it unique and allows the company to develop customer designs that fit the specific needs of each customer. Therefore, its reach has grown, and it currently works with over 250 different transport providers through ordering, provisioning, installation and support. Through these efforts, CIS has become a valuable resource when it comes to designing custom network solutions that maximize the strengths and cost benefits of different transport technologies and providers. 

However, CIS felt like its portfolio of primary, secondary and temporary networking access was lacking. That’s where Accelerated Concepts is coming into play. Accelerated is an enterprise-grade provider of cellular (LTE) networking equipment for primary or backup networking applications, and it is the backbone for failover, as well as M2M and IoT solutions.

Accelerated’s offerings were exactly what CIS felt it was missing, which is why the two companies have teamed up in order to strengthen CIS’ portfolio of primary, secondary, and temporary networking access.

Under the new agreement, CIS will combine its custom solutions engineering, project management, and support with Accelerated’s cellular platforms to deliver highly available data and voice services. Not only that, but they will offer a faster time to market than traditional wireline transport. Since LTE routers from Accelerated are designed with interoperability in mind, they’re the perfect solution for the job of providing seamless integration with existing infrastructure to ensure business continuity.

Although the partnership was just announced today and is fairly new, CIS is already experiencing great success thanks to the help of Accelerated. Matt Miller, President of Corporate IT Solutions, commented, “With the ever improving coverage of the major cellular data providers, we have been able to meet aggressive store opening schedules for our clients with an extremely low failure rate on cellular. In addition, with Accelerated Concepts and LTE, we have also seen a high success rate in deploying our hosted VoIP service on cellular. In cases where low speed DSL and T1 are the only option, we have even deployed a cellular router to use for VoIP full time, saving our clients a substantial amount of money on transport while still providing great call quality and a feature-rich communications platform…Flexibility in design and support sets CIS apart and Accelerated Concepts has platforms that help enable that.”
