24 October, Johannesburg: MIA Telecoms, South Africa’s leading telecoms distributor and sole provider of Samsung telecommunications equipment in Southern Africa, is pleased to announce the general availability of the Centile Cloud Unified Communications (UC) Platform to the Telecoms, ITSP, ISP and reseller communities.
Centile’s Cloud UC Platform supports essential unified communications technologies, including IP Centrex, voicemail, unified messaging, auto attendant, teleconferencing, instant messaging, and more. It helps businesses to reduce communications complexity, improve efficiency, reduce costs, and also helps smaller companies to compete with bigger ones by taking advantage of the advanced UC features.
Centile is the leading European provider of enterprise-class UC solutions and fixed-mobile convergence platforms. Their solutions have won many industry awards, including a TMC Labs Innovation Award, Communications Solutions Product of the Year, along with several Pulver 100 Awards. And now, MIA Telecoms’ resellers can access the technology as wholesale partners.
MIA Telecoms Managing Director, Bryan Driessel, says “We’ve onboarded Centile’s UC platform with the sole purpose on empowering the Telecoms channel and opening up the Telecoms market opportunity to the ITSP and ISP market who would like to advance their business from being a reseller to becoming a Wholesaler. Not only would resellers benefit from an increase in profitability overnight by routing calls at rates from as low as 23c per minute, but they’ll have complete flexibility in how they choose to package and bundle the solution. All of this, backed by proven technologies from a company with a long-running track record of excellence.”
Centile has developed the Centile Any3 architecture using open standards-based APIs. This empowers operators and integrators to deploy communications services that facilitate “Any service, over Any network, on Any terminal” to fixed-line and mobile users.
“Centile’s cutting-edge Cloud UC platform integrates well with existing networks on pretty much any last mile connection. It has the potential to unlock even more value for our resellers by enabling them to bring in other Voice networks into Centile, allowing partners to “own the UC part” while they prepare to move clients completely over to their network.”
Partners are invited to become a partner and join the Centile wholesale program with Mia Telecoms, which offers all the support needed to get going, along with any marketing and sales assistance required.
Driessel concluded that “Centile’s Cloud UC technology together with our wholesale call termination offering ticks all of the right boxes needed in this highly competitive market. Through our partners, SMEs can access advanced UC capabilities at a cost that will surprise and delight them.”
