We at Cypress are honored that TMC has selected C4 IP as the 2008 Product of the Year

Cypress Communications starts the new year off right with yet another award for product innovation--the company's 10th for their C4 IP™ hosted VoIP and hosted unified communications solution. This latest accolade, 2008 Product of the Year, is awarded by Technology Marketing Corporation's (TMC®) INTERNET TELEPHONY magazine.

"We at Cypress are honored that TMC has selected C4 IP as the 2008 Product of the Year," said Frank Grillo, executive vice president of marketing at Cypress Communications. "C4 IP has made a tangible difference in our customers' businesses and in the communications industry as a whole, and we're proud of its success. But even with 10 awards for product innovation, we won't rest on our laurels--we will continue to deploy innovative new functionality that can further help our customers connect, communicate, collaborate and continue thriving, even in a down economy."

C4 IP delivers converged voice and data services, integrated audio and Web conferencing, multimedia collaboration tools, and robust support for remote workers. While traditional unified communications solutions are costly and complex, Cypress' fully hosted and managed C4 IP solution enables small-to-medium enterprises (SMEs) to benefit from a slew of productivity-enhancing technologies without the capital expense or need to hire additional technical staff to manage the system.

As a part of the hosted delivery model, Cypress takes on the challenge of keeping up with the rapid evolution of communications technologies and brings advances to SMEs faster and cheaper than if they attempted it themselves. And since the SME is not responsible for purchasing and maintaining the infrastructure, C4 IP can be scaled up or down as needs change--all without any additional investments in hardware or software.

Rich Tehrani, TMC President and Editor-in-Chief of INTERNET TELEPHONY magazine, said, "We at TMC are proud to recognize the positive impact that leading providers like Cypress have had on communications technology. With the INTERNET TELEPHONY Product of the Year Award, we recognize Cypress' commitment to innovation and honor the success of their hosted unified communications solution."

A full list of Product of the Year winners will be published in the February, 2009 issue of INTERNET TELEPHONY magazine, ( INTERNET TELEPHONY has been the authority in IP communication since 1998™.
