Peerless SIP Trunking Services Qualified for Interoperability with Microsoft Lync 2013


July 08, 2013

Peerless Network’s Enterprise SIP Trunking services have been qualified for interoperability with Microsoft Lync 2013.

Officials with Peerless Network, a provider of IP telephony and interconnection services, said that the qualification, part of Peerless’ Enterprise Cloud Services (ECS) initiative, will enable Microsoft channel partners to deliver a feature-rich Unified Communications experience over the company’s state-of-the-art IP network.

Company officials pointed out that the ECS initiative is a natural extension of Peerless’ current network capabilities, which carries over 60 billion minutes of voice traffic per year and manages over five million telephone numbers for its customers.

“Peerless has been providing SIP Trunking since 2008,” said Richard Knight, executive vice president of sales and marketing, Peerless Network, in a statement.

Knight said that with over a quarter million active SIP sessions in place, Peerless has the economies-of-scale to deliver real-time, end-to-end enterprise solutions to Microsoft’s channel partners.

According to company officials, Peerless’ Enterprise SIP Trunking provides seamless integration between traditional and next-generation voice technologies including-IP-to-TDM conversions; local, long distance and toll-free bundles; Calling Name Delivery (CNAM) and E911 services; local and national DID (Direct Inward Dial) services and advanced routing, among other things.

Earlier in January, Peerless Network announced that it has secured $15 million in debt financing from Square 1 Bank.

Peerless will use the financing to fund network growth, provide additional data center capacity and enter new markets.

In October of last year, Peerless Network also announced the opening of a new, state-of-the-art data center and colocation facility.

The 12,600-square-foot facility will house the company’s Network Operations Center (NOC), support ongoing network expansion plans and help alleviate the shortage of premium colocation space in downtown Chicago.

The facility represents a $5 million investment, creating a significant number of local construction jobs and potential full-time employment opportunities within the Chicago area.
