SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwire - Oct 9, 2012) - Kerio Technologies today announced that MegaPath Corporation, one of the leading providers of managed data, voice, security and hosted IT services in North America, has been approved as a SIP Trunking provider with Kerio Operator. This approval follows comprehensive mutual testing between both companies of MegaPath's SIP Trunking service and Kerio's IP PBX. Now, channel partners of both vendors can offer a seamless Voice over IP (VoIP) solution to customers.
"More organizations are bringing voice onto their IP-based networks every day and SIP Trunking is making this possible. IT VARs that embrace IP telephony have the opportunity to expand their business with MegaPath and Kerio Operator," said John Scarborough, Vice President of Products and Services, MegaPath.
MegaPath performs validation testing with all IP PBX vendors that it partners with. Going beyond confirming connectivity, MegaPath ensures voice quality remains comparable to POTS (plain old telephone system) lines through its Quality of Service (QoS) features that allow IT administrators to confidently recommend the SIP provider with Kerio Operator and know they are offering a high-quality, reliable system.
Kerio Operator is secure, flexible and can be set up and deployed within a few minutes. The system improves voice communications, controls telephony costs, and lets users stay connected anywhere, while remaining simple for both the employee and the IT administrator. Kerio Operator utilizes the industry-standard SIP VoIP protocol, is compatible with any IP Phone, and will auto-configure with many popular phones.
"With Kerio Operator and MegaPath, I can tell my clients that I have their voice needs covered from install to first call," said Bob McCool, President and CEO, arielMIS, Inc., a Kerio Preferred Partner in Boulder, Colo. "The SIP Trunking service from MegaPath made my first deployment of Kerio Operator a painless process. I'm now ready to jump into IP voice without fear."
