Atlanta, GA (Vocus) November 17, 2010
Cypress Communications® announced today that Technology Marketing Corporation (TMC) has named the company’s hosted unified communications solution, C4 IP®, as a recipient of the 2010 INTERNET TELEPHONY Excellence Award presented by INTERNET TELEPHONY magazine.
This is Cypress’ 30th award for excellence and product innovation.
“It is always gratifying when your accomplishments receive praise, so we are thrilled Internet Telephony recognized our service for their Excellence Award. We have worked hard to bring large enterprise functionality and reliability to the small-to-medium business market,” said Frank Grillo, executive vice president of implementation, support and marketing at Cypress. “And it is even more gratifying when customers see the productivity improvements our C4 IP service offers over traditional phone service.”
C4 IP is a hosted unified communications solution that enables small-to-medium enterprises (SMEs) to connect, communicate, collaborate and continue®, thus the C4 name. C4 IP delivers voice and data services and a powerful suite of collaboration tools that include Microsoft® Outlook integration, unified messaging, real-time presence, file and desktop sharing, chat, and audio, video, and web conferencing.
With its advanced network architecture, Cypress offers unmatched levels of business continuity and disaster recovery. Beyond the inherent component and geographic redundancy, the network is engineered for 99.999% availability and local site survivability.
And, since C4 IP is delivered as a fully hosted solution, smaller companies can take advantage of the same enterprise-grade applications and technologies as their larger counterparts – while actually lowering their total communications spend. Cypress provides all the equipment and manages the solution from the network to the phone on each desk, so there’s no capital expense, no worries of technological obsolescence and no need for SMEs to hire or train additional IT staff to manage the solution.
“The editors of INTERNET TELEPHONY were pleased to grant Cypress Communications with an INTERNET TELEPHONY Excellence Award for their achievements in advancing IP communications and providing genuine solutions in the marketplace. C4 IP has proven its outstanding contribution to IP communications and delivered winning solutions for its customers,” said Erik Linask, Group Editorial Director of INTERNET TELEPHONY.
“Cypress Communications has been recognized with a 2010 INTERNET TELEPHONY Excellence Award for proving their dedication and excellence in advancing IP communications,” stated Rich Tehrani, CEO, TMC.
The 2010 INTERNET TELEPHONY Excellence Award winners are published in the October 2010 issue of INTERNET TELEPHONY magazine, http://www.itmag.com.
