SoTel Systems Announces Partnership with the SIP School


February 16, 2011

SoTel Systems, a wholesale supplier of business communications products and Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) services, has entered into a partnership with The SIP School.

 “The choice of The SIP School was really not a decision at all. They are simply the best selfpaced learning option for gaining not only knowledge of SIP Technology, but also how to sell it and the potential for an enterprise-class certification program for SIP through them is the ‘icing on the cake.’ This program is key to the education and certification of not only our value added resellers but also our SIP channel partners,” said Kevin Hill, manager -technical assistance center, SoTel Systems, LLC, in a statement.

Hill said that this is part of a complete plan for becoming the SIP Partner to have for all telecommunication VARs in 2011 and beyond.

“Our partnership with The SIP School will allow us to leverage our knowledge of SIP trunking to strengthen our relationship with our partners and customers. Offering The SIP School’s training will elevate our partners to a higher level of education, which is vital in today’s competitive market,” said Adam Goebel, channel director of sales for SoTel Systems LLC.

Nick Kramer, channel director of inside sales at SoTel Systems, LLC said that The SIP School will enable the partners to have a true understanding of SIP.

“Our partners will not only know how to work with SIP service, but they will also understand how to get the most out of this new and exciting technology,” said Kramer.

Graham Francis, CEO of The SIP School said that this partnership with SoTel is great for the SIP School.

“Being able to offer our training and certification to clients of SoTel with their great range of SIP services will further establish The SIP School as the industry’s choice for learning and qualifying on SIP,” said Francis.

Francis added the SIP School e-learning program is a great choice for companies who need to get their team trained on SIP whilst looking to slash travel and subsistence costs.

Francis also stated that The SIP School has been updated constantly to keep up with the ongoing development of SIP since its launch in 2007, and is confident that the inclusion of modules such as ‘SIP in Unified Communications’ will tempt even more companies to join up.

“Our SSCA SIP certification is certainly the only one worth attaining as it’s now recognized by so many important companies and organizations around the world,” Francis commented.

unified communications reported  in March 2010 that Toshiba America Information Systems and SoTel Systems, an Internet telephony services provider, have certified the interoperability of Toshiba’s Strata CIX VoIP Systems and SoTel SIP Trunking.
