New Global Telecom (NGT) announced today that Technology Marketing Corporation’s (TMC®) INTERNET TELEPHONY magazine, the IP Communications Authority since 1998™, has named NGT’s partner program in collaboration with Cisco as a recipient of its 2009 Product of the Year Award.
NGT, the largest hosted VoIP provider in the U.S. with 150,000+ IP endpoints under management, and Cisco, a global networking giant with increased focus and investment in the small business market, are working together to proactively drive Hosted VoIP telephony adoption across the small business segment in the U.S. Activities launched in 2009 are two-fold: a robust agent partner recruitment effort and a complete small business bundle of phones and unified communications services.
The small business bundle includes NGT Hosted Digital Voice with Cisco SPA 500 Series IP Phones. NGT Hosted Digital Voice is a full-featured hosted telephony service that includes a phone number, mobility & unified communications features. The Cisco SPA 500 Series IP Phones are the next generation of Cisco Small Business phones with full duplex speakerphones, G.722 HD audio, in feature-rich phones that are designed for maximum responsiveness.
“INTERNET TELEPHONY is proud to grant NGT’s partner program in collaboration with Cisco a 2009 Product of the Year Award. NGT has proven its commitment to quality and excellence while addressing real needs in the marketplace,” said Rich Tehrani, CEO, TMC. “We’re happy to recognize and honor NGT for their development of IP communications technology. We look forward to more innovative solutions from them in the future.”
NGT recently welcomed existing Cisco partners into the NGT Partner Program with a special hosted PBX and unified communications training program.
NGT has agreed to be acquired by Comcast Corporation with an expected close in March, 2010.
