TalkTalk Business welcomes swcomms as hosted partner

TalkTalk Business has welcomed South West Communications Group  as its newest cloud-hosted unified communications partner.

The solution offers IP telephony services and unified communications (UC) features using Mitel handsets, all hosted and managed on the UK-wide TalkTalk network.

The solution requires only a limited investment in hardware, free upgrades, free inter-site calling via integrated voice and data networks and 24/7 support to replace on-premise telephone systems and traditional ISDN and PSTN lines, which are becoming rapidly outdated.

swcomms MD Brian Lodge said: "We have been supplying cloud-hosted IP telephone and UC solutions to our customers for a number of years but wanted to offer them a broader choice, especially with ISDN services scheduled to be phased out by 2025.

"We already resell TalkTalk Business's connectivity solutions and this move is a natural one as both parties have already built up a healthy rapport."

Alexandra Tempest, Director of Partners at TalkTalk Business, said: "More UK businesses are moving from ISDN to IP telephony services each year in order to take advantage of the capabilities and flexibility that these products can offer.

"With its expertise of combining both IP telephony and the connectivity services that underpin them, swcomms is in a great position to help UK businesses to grow and flourish."
