PHOENIX, April 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Telesphere is excited to announce a product advancement that will enable enterprises to get the most out of their Lync deployments, Telesphere has completed independent qualification of SIP trunking services for Microsoft Lync 2010.This qualification ensures that Telesphere's nationwide, private SIP trunking services are fully compatible with Lync implementations.


By using Telesphere's private, nationwide MPLS network for Lync, businesses with single or multi-site offices around a city, region or the country no longer have the expense and complexity of PSTN gateways and the need to work with multiple service providers. With the recent addition of points of presence (POPs) in Atlanta and Chicago to its already extensive coast-to-coast national network, Telesphere's network provides businesses nationwide with a fast, cost-effective and low-complexity solution as they migrate to Microsoft Lync and enjoy cloud and other unified communication features.

"Microsoft qualification gives CIOs and IT managers peace of mind that Telesphere's private SIP trunking services are tested with Lync," said Sanjay Srinivasan, Telesphere CTO. "This is the latest example of Telesphere's commitment to providing businesses with advanced solutions."

"Lync gives enterprises a competitive advantage by enabling real-time, intuitive communication and collaboration," said Laura Howard, Senior Director of Lync Partner Engineering at Microsoft. "Telesphere's private SIP trunking services gives enterprises a convenient, low-complexity option for extending their Lync implementations across multiple facilities around the country."

With Telesphere serving as their single, nationwide provider of SIP interconnection, enterprises that use Lync may eliminate the architectural and operational complexity of multiple PSTN interconnects. In the process, businesses can use Telesphere's private SIP trunking to access a wide range of cloud-based communications services and advanced features to increase employee productivity. This strategy lets enterprises maximize the value of their Lync installation by overlaying features that provide additional levels of services for business continuity (disaster recovery) and mobile integration.
