Alianza: Alianza Announces EasySwitch VoIP End-of-Life Migration Assistance
Program facilitates rapid transition to lower-cost cloud-based wholesale solution for service providers with aging, defunct or obsolete VoIP products and solutions
LINDON, Utah — March 11, 2014 – Alianza Inc., the cloud voice platform company, today announced EasySwitch™, an end-of-life migration assistance program for service providers with cancelled, defunct or obsolete VoIP products and wholesale white label solutions. The program enables a rapid transition to Alianza’s Cloud Voice Platform and features professional services and service credits to ease the financial and logistical challenges of the move to a next-generation VoIP solution.
The transition to VoIP has been underway since the late 1990s and billions of dollars have been spent on equipment and services. A significant amount of legacy VoIP equipment is now entering a second decade of operation and is obsolete, no longer supported or has been cancelled outright. Networks built on this technology from the last decade are rapidly reaching end-of-life, forcing service providers into replacement scenarios for point solutions or their entire network. This results in additional capital expenditures and a disruptive transition path that can wreak havoc on the VoIP business case and funnel resources away from other core strategic initiatives.
Service providers that own application servers and softswitches, or use legacy white label reseller programs, can now rapidly move to a next-generation solution. Alianza’s EasySwitch program aids cable operators, ISPs and telcos in transitioning to a modern, flexible and more cost-effective solution to deliver VoIP services. Alianza’s Cloud Voice Platform provides a rich feature set to support residential VoIP, hosted business VoIP/IP PBX and SIP trunking services, and can extend those services to mobile and WiFi devices for over-the-top delivery.
This program features:
- Financial incentives — service credits to offset the undepreciated value of existing equipment or early termination fees for reseller programs.
- Professional services — a dedicated onboarding team to define and manage the transition process across all phases, including discovery, training, beta testing and full migration.
- Device certification — waived certification fees for qualifying VoIP CPE and devices used for existing services.
“We know that many service providers face an uncertain future with their existing VoIP solutions, and this new program removes the financial and technical obstacles so they can rapidly and safely migrate to a next-generation solution,” stated Kevin Dundon, Executive Vice President of Business Development with Alianza. “Our Cloud Voice Platform provides a future-proof solution that is easier to manage, less expensive and more scalable than networks and reseller programs of the past.”
Alianza has experience with large-scale migrations and has developed a proven process and tool set to facilitate the transition. Alianza’s EasyMigrate™ bulk migration tool replicates data and migrates all subscribers, including call settings, PINs, voicemail settings and voicemails. The migration is timed with the porting of the phone numbers with Alianza’s Accelerate Voice™ carrier partners and validated prior to switching live traffic and devices to the platform.
Alianza’s deep set of APIs facilitate rapid back-office integration to maintain business operations and eliminate manual processes through automation, which reduces error, facilitates growth and further drives down operational costs. Additional program details, including customer qualification and offer period, can be obtained by contacting the Alianza sales team via the EasySwitch page or by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
