Cypress Communications announced today that the company’s C4 IP solution has been named 2007 Product of the Year by Technology Marketing Corporation’s (TMC®) Unified Communications magazine. C4 IP is an enterprise-class hosted VoIP and unified communications solution that features integrated voice/data access, desktop phones, softphones and cutting-edge multimedia applications such as unified messaging, Microsoft® Outlook integration, collaboration, real-time presence, chat, as well as audio, video and Web conferencing. This innovative unified communications functionality is backed with LAN/WAN management, a 24/7 fully redundant national VoIP network and high-touch customer service.

“Cypress Communications has shown an unyielding commitment to innovation while addressing real needs in the marketplace, and Unified Communications is pleased to grant a 2007 Product of the Year Award to the company’s C4 IP solution,” said Rich Tehrani, TMC President and Editor-in-Chief of Unified Communications magazine. “We’re proud to honor their hard work and accomplishments and look forward to more innovative solutions from Cypress Communications in the future.”

With its highly resilient network, wide range of applications and commendable scalability, C4 IP has made its mark on the communications industry — even helping to define a new category in hosted VoIP. This category, called Communications as a Service (CaaS), is distinguished by unique end-to-end hosted delivery and wide array of integrated VoIP and unified communications features.

“C4 IP has forged new territory in the hosted VoIP industry, enabling small-to-medium enterprises to take advantage of unified communications technologies that are usually attainable by only the largest of enterprises,” said Frank Grillo, executive vice president of marketing at Cypress Communications.

“The market response to our end-to-end hosted delivery model for unified communications has been phenomenal, and we are honored to receive the Unified Communications magazine Product of the Year Award.”

C4 IP is an enterprise-class, hosted VoIP solution that enables multi-location companies to communicate seamlessly throughout the enterprise.
