Microsoft Gold Partner Intrust IT Joins Sangoma Reseller Program

Sangoma's NetBorder Lync Express All-in-One Appliance Expected to Strengthen the Company's Portfolio of Office365, Lync and Cloud Solutions

Toronto, Canada — (StockNetwork – September 12, 2013) – Sangoma Technologies Corporation (TSX VENTURE: STC), a leading provider of hardware and software components that enable or enhance IP communications systems for both voice and data, announced that Intrust IT, a leading Microsoft solution provider in the United States, has joined the Sangoma reseller program, and will standardize its on-premise Lync deployments with Sangoma’s NetBorder Lync Express appliance. Intrust IT selected Lync Express based upon its effectiveness in simplifying deployments by incorporating Lync server functions, a Session Border Controller, and Voice over IP gateway into a single appliance.

“As a Microsoft Gold Partner, and a provider of advanced IT solutions at the customer premise and in the cloud, Intrust IT is well positioned to deploy Lync to any enterprise,” said Tim Rettig, chief executive officer for Intrust IT. “The Sangoma NetBorder Lync Express removes the challenges of configuring and deploying the telephony component of a full Lync implementation. Having Lync server pre-installed on the device further simplifies the installations. The entire integrated Lync package is expected to save a great deal of time and cost for implementing this technology.”

Lync Express models easily scale to serve up to 1000 Lync seats, include certification with Lync 2013, and incorporate a full-featured Session Border Controller (SBC) for deployments using SIP trunks. The versatile Lync Express appliance can be configured with a variety of PSTN interface types and a VoIP gateway, as an IP only device with an integrated SBC, or with both gateway and SBC capabilities in the same unit.

“We are very pleased that Intrust IT will participate in the Sangoma reseller program, and look forward to working with them in accelerating their sales and expanding their Lync market share,” said Mark Wagner, Sangoma’s vice president of sales for Carrier, Microsoft Lync and Office 365 solutions. “Lync Express is the only all-in-one Lync appliance it the market, and it will enable Intrust IT to enhance the services it delivers and expedite deployment. We anticipate that both our companies will benefit greatly from this relationship.”
