IntelePeer and WorkSpace Provide Complete, Turnkey Infrastructure, Enabling Service Providers to Offer Hosted UC, SIP Trunking and On-Demand Communications Services

WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwire - July 12, 2010) -  Today at the Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference 2010 in Washington, IntelePeer Inc. (, a leader in the delivery of communications via cloud-based infrastructure, announced a partnership with WorkSpace Communications to deliver an easily deployed, hosted unified communications (UC) offering based on Microsoft Office Communications Server. 

By combining IntelePeer's Quick Start SIP Trunking program, Voice Peering Network™, and SuperRegistry™ with WorkSpace Communications' ( patent-pending Microsoft OCS environment, which interoperates with any previously installed Microsoft Exchange implementation, the companies provide a complete, turnkey solution. Together, they enable service providers to offer hosted UC, SIP trunking and on-demand communications services that can be deployed almost instantly, without requiring extensive changes to related applications.

"Our hosted environment makes it much easier and cost effective for service providers to offer Microsoft OCS-based, unified communications services, enabling them to extend their revenue stream and quickly meet growing customer demand," said Bryan DiGiorgio, chief executive officer for WorkSpace Communications.

IntelePeer's hosted SIP trunks are offered without requiring minimum commitments, eliminating up-front deployment risks and minimizing capital expenditures. Through its advanced network infrastructure, IntelePeer simplifies telecommunications by delivering carrier-quality service over public or private Internet Protocol (IP) connections. This spares customers from the need to change their current data provider or existing communications equipment, eliminating the lengthy delays associated with most service providers.

"The IntelePeer Quick Start program is optimized for Microsoft OCS," said Margaret Norton, general manager, enterprise for IntelePeer. "We can turn around a hosted, Microsoft-certified SIP trunk as rapidly as five days, giving our partners and customers the agility they need for today's dynamic market."
