By Jyothi Shanbhag, TMCnet Contributing Editor


Wesbell Technologies has signed a distribution agreement with SimpleSignal to market SIP Trunking solution to its AastraLink Response Point resellers.
 
Wesbell Technologies provides professional services, investment recovery, distribution, and managed services to communications carriers, manufacturers and resellers. It has also partnered with Aastra and Microsoft, and is said to be the sole distributor of the AastraLink Response Point phone system in North America.

 
This new agreement will allow Wesbell to offer SimpleSIP to their business customers in the U.S. and Canada.
 
Chris Mercer, vice president of Sales for Wesbell Technologies pointed out that their company is committed to build a value-add reseller network, with innovative products and solutions that provide the reseller community with the tools for success, he also said that SimpleSignal (News - Alert) is a key partner in adding that value.
 
Headquartered in Dana Point, California, SimpleSignal’s services are primarily aimed to serve small and medium sized businesses (SMBs) that employ from 10–100 people.  It provides advanced VoIP calling features and works with any PBX (News - Alert) and IP-PBX phone system to the SMB’s. Company’s SimpleSIP Trunking delivers productivity enhancing features, such as simultaneous ring, unified messaging and disaster recovery capabilities.
 
Trunking solution is also helpful in reducing the need of additional hardware to interface IP voice to the Public Switch Telephone Network (PSTN) with burstable trunks. The facility includes non-reachable routing to any 10-digit number and free local and long distance and office-to-office calling.
 
According to Michael Sterl, vice president of Sales for SimpleSignal, "This distribution arrangement with Wesbell Technologies means thousands of businesses will have access to our SimpleSIP Trunking solution and can gain access to advanced calling features using the same telephony system they have in-house."
 
He added that SimpleSIP Trunking allows companies to improve workers' productivity and connectivity in an economical way.
 
Speaking on this occasion, Mark Fitchett, the National Channel director for Wesbell Technologies said that, "SIP Trunking is a big play in today's marketplace, in which businesses are concerned about the bottom-line, yet want the best technology available.” He further added that, "We know our resellers will be excited to offer SIP Trunking from a trusted provider like SimpleSignal to their business clients."
