Spitfire has achieved Cisco Premier Certified Partner status. Cisco certification means that Spitfire can now offer customers the full range of Cisco SMB comms solutions, including two Cisco Unified Communications platforms: the Cisco Unified Communications 300 Series (UC300) aimed at small businesses with up to 24 users; and the Cisco 500 Series (UC500) for small to medium sized businesses requiring 8 to 138 extensions.
As a leading provider of network services Spitfire can offer customers a comprehensive business comms solution that includes Cisco UC Communication Managers and Spitfire’s SIP Trunk service. Designed as an ISDN replacement, Spitfire’s SIP Trunks typically offers business quality secure telephony at up to 50 per cent less than the monthly rental cost of an equivalent ISDN service. This saving also incorporates the cost of the Internet circuit which carries the calls.
Spitfire can now provide customers with a single dedicated Ethernet service for all Internet and Voice over IP requirements at a sub-£500 per month price point. Spitfire’s new package includes 30 SIP Trunks, 200 DDI numbers and a 10mb Ethernet circuit.
Commenting on the Cisco certification, Tom Fellowes, Sales Director said, “Cisco sets the bar very high for its Premier Certified Partners, so we are delighted to have achieved this status. It means that we can now offer our customers a holistic comms solution that includes Cisco UC Communication Managers and Spitfire SIP Trunk connectivity. As one of the few ISPs and fixed line operators to offer a SIP Trunk service, Spitfire offers a complete end-to-end SIP service via its own IP and TDM infrastructure. Spitfire can provide a direct connection between the customers’ premises and Spitfire’s core network over the UK’s widest range of SDSL, ADSL or Ethernet circuits.”
