Unified Communications Provider Broadvox to Hold Partner Summit in May


March 11, 2011

The upcoming Broadvox Partner Summit to be held May 3-5 in Dallas gives attendees many resources to build up their businesses.

Last year's Partner Summit, held in April 2010, also in Dallas, had a strong turnout. This year the company is inviting the entire sales channel of over 1,500 VAR Partner Program members – including agents.

Attendees will learn about new products and services, meet company executives, and get inspired – all in a fun environment, the company said.

This year's event will feature a keynote by Roger Staubach -- successful businessman, entrepreneur, U.S. Navy veteran and former star quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys. Staubach will offer business insights and some keys to his success.

In addition, Broadvox senior managers will be on hand to discuss industry and company trends, as well as important innovations.

The exhibit hall will feature new tools, products and services – to build up business. There are networking opportunities during dinner. And during the evening a fun Casino Night is planned, with the chance to outbid the “competition” for Roger Staubach-autographed memorabilia during a silent auction.

There are opportunities to be a sponsor at the 2011 Broadvox Partner Summit. Sponsorships can increase a company’s exposure to the unified communications sales channel. It also gives an opportunity to generate business and brand recognition with the VARs in attendance.

Broadvox started its operations in 2001, by providing carrier services over a VoIP network, according to information on the company’s website.  In 2007, commercial SIP Trunking was added to the mix and in 2008, the company started selling broadband.

Earlier this year, Broadvox merged with Cypress Communications and now provides Hosted Unified Communications as a Service (UCaaS) for small- and medium-sized businesses, as well as enterprises.

In other company news, there are many benefits from Broadvox and Cypress Communications completing their merger, according to a report from unified communications. The two companies expect to realize many benefits as will their customers through the synergy achieved with the merger, unified communications adds.

The merged company will be identified as Broadvox, while Cypress is a Broadvox brand.

According to unified communications, through the merger, Cypress will gain access to Broadvox’s network backbone for direct origination and termination of voice traffic to more effectively meet the needs of its expanding customer base. Broadvox will benefit from the increased utilization of its network backbone and the ability to enhance its carrier, SMB and SME offerings with the Cypress Communications’ unified communications suite of services, unified communications adds.

At the close of 2010, TMC gave Cypress its 31st award for excellence and product innovation. The award was given in recognition of Cypress’ hosted unified communications solution, C4 IP, according to unified communications.

Broadvox’s corporate headquarters are in Dallas, with operations centers located in Atlanta, Georgia and Cleveland, Ohio.
