Netelligent today announced the launch of a new hosted infrastructure offering powered 100% by Cisco hardware and software. The new offering, Hosted Café, provides customers with a state-of-the-art hosted Cisco infrastructure, 24 x 7 x 365 support, and a broad range of bundled services for a fraction of the costs of owning that same infrastructure.

Cisco has long been recognized as the leader for enterprise class networking and telephony solutions, and is simply beyond the financial reach of some mid-sized and SMB companies, and K-12 schools. Therefore, organizations settle for lower tier solutions that fit their budget. With the Hosted Café, even the smallest companies or school districts can now afford the best core technology solution-set on the market. Netelligent's Hosted Café is a game changer.

Initially, Hosted Café is available throughout Missouri.

Hosted Café is a one-of-a kind offering which is part of the growing market for hosted solutions. Customers of Hosted Café get the latest Cisco technologies, reduce their overall IT support costs and simplify their infrastructure related expenses. The biggest change for most customers is the fact that they now get a single bill for everything from local, long distance and international calling, to LAN, WAN, and Wireless, to 24 x 7 x 365 support, to internet connectivity and even faxing. "We have taken the conventional IT infrastructure and made it accessible, fully supported and simple", says Aaron Stone, President and CEO of Netelligent. "Up until now, if you wanted the best network and telephone system on the market, you needed capital funding and a team of technical resources to help implement and maintain the technologies. Hosted Café removes those barriers and complexities, and now anyone can afford the best", says Stone.

"The most difficult thing for new Customers to understand is that Netelligent is now their phone company, internet provider, technology partner, and help desk", says Jay Smith, Account Manager for Hosted Café. "It's just too simple at first."

Hosted solutions are a growing movement for both the public and private sectors. What began ten years ago with Software as a Service (SAAS), has evolved beyond simply software and into hardware, core infrastructure, and cloud computing. One of the key drivers to shifting toward a hosted service model is cost savings. Hosted Services fall on the ledger as an Operating Expense, while large investments in new IT hardware/software are Capital Expenditures. Given market conditions, many organizations are working hard to reduce Cap Ex, and to find ways to improve budget consistency and visibility. Hosted Café provides a state-of-the-art service, with consistent, predictable, manageable, known costs.

In Public Sector, specifically the K-12 market, Educators have an even greater reason to evaluate the Hosted Café offering, as it is eRate Tier 1 eligible versus the traditional Tier 2 eligibility for on-premise solutions. ERate is a federal program which provides discounts to assist most schools and libraries in the United States to obtain affordable telecommunication and Internet access. Therefore, by moving toward Hosted Café, K-12 can take advantage of the latest enterprise technologies without having to make major capital or personnel investments.
