Smoothstone Expands International Coverage

With Availability of Cloud-Based Enterprise Communications Applications

Updated: January 06, 2011

As a result of its international footprint expansion, Smoothstone's cloud-based enterprise communications applications and services are now available in key European markets, including the United Kingdom, France, Germany and Switzerland. Enterprises in those countries now have full access to Smoothstone's application-aware managed MPLS network services, along with its innovative portfolio of cloud-based PBX, contact center, IP Centrex and SIP Trunking solutions.

"We are answering the call from our customers, expanding international reach to deliver a full portfolio of services in European markets," said Jeff Wellemeyer, President and Chairman of Smoothstone. "This announcement represents the first step in an aggressive roll-out plan that will provide Smoothstone applications and services across Europe by the end of 2010."

The program includes the expansion of Smoothstone's cloud-based applications platform into several European data centers, resulting in increased transatlantic network capacity and the ability for local number porting, call origination and termination in European countries.

Enterprise customers, with the need to deploy a consistent set of communication and collaboration tools across a distributed and mobile workforce, will benefit from Smoothstone's cloud-based application and services, which drive increased productivity while driving down the costs and complexity of deploying and managing enterprise-wide, next-generation IP services.

"Smoothstone has maintained a consistent focus on serving the needs of the distributed enterprise," said Amy Lind, an analyst with IDC. "Expanding its service coverage to European markets is a significant and strategic next step for Smoothstone. By delivering services outside the United States, Smoothstone is able to provide services to customers that prefer to have a single provider for all their communications needs."

Services in United Kingdom, France, Germany and Switzerland are available immediately.
