IntelePeer's Atmosphere Voice Services Certified with Cisco's Business Edition 4000

IntelePeer’s (News - Alert) Atmosphere Voice Services are now certified with Cisco’s Business Edition 4000. That should make it easier for Cisco Certified Partners to implement solutions based on these offerings.

These offerings are targeted at small and mid-sized businesses, IntelePeer explained in a Feb. 27 statement. The company says they’re ideal for SMBs that aren’t ready to move entirely to cloud communications. So, this Cisco (News - Alert)-IntelePeer offering employs a premises-based device and uses the cloud to simplify management.

Businesses using this can expect to see 40 percent telecom savings and greater network resiliency. Plus, they’ll have round-the-clock access to customer support staff.

“At IntelePeer we help companies of all sizes utilize the power of cloud communications as a tool for improving business processes and internal and external interactions,” said Robert Galop (News - Alert), SVP Product & Marketing at IntelePeer. “We’re proud to partner with Cisco on another solution that does just that.”

IntelePeer services are certified with a variety of Cisco solutions. That includes Business Edition 600 and 7000, Cisco Unified Call Manager, and Unified Border Element. IntelePeer says it’s also the only fully integrated PSTN part for Cisco Spark and the Meraki MC.

Speaking of Meraki, Cisco at the end of January, announced Cisco Meraki Wireless Health. This solution is for customers with distributed IT operations. It reduces the mean time to address wireless issues. It does that by leveraging analytics and the insights then can deliver.

This offering is part of Cisco’s larger move to infuse the network with automation and intelligence. The company is working to create networks that anticipates operational issues, identifies and addresses security threats, and provides business intelligence.

"The network has never been more critical to business success, but it's also never been under more pressure," said Cisco CEO Chuck Robbins. "By building a more intuitive network, we are creating an intelligent platform with unmatched security for today and for the future that propels businesses forward and creates new opportunities for people and organizations everywhere."
