2016.05.13 - SureVoIP Wins at The ITSPA Awards

May 13th, 2016

 Every year The ITSPA (The Internet Telephony Service Providers Association) runs its own industry awards, giving recognition to providers who have excelled in the field. The awards are given for VoIP provision over consumer, small enterprise, medium enterprise, and corporate deployments. Awards are also given in the categories of Customer Premises Equipment support, Infrastructure and Innovation. SureVoIP® was thrilled to be a Finalist in three of these categories, and were even more thrilled to win the Best Business ITSP for Medium Enterprise Award. Entrants were required to submit operation details, and case studies for review for each category. This year as every year, the ITSPA judges set rigorous standards, and two months of technical testing were compulsory for each entrant, scrutinising reliability, stability and service quality. SureVoIP was alerted that it was a Finalist in three of the categories: Medium Enterprise, Corporate Enterprise, and Best VoIP Infrastructure by a chance conversation in the street – typical of Aberdeen! The 2016 ceremony was held on The Deck, the amazing glass-walled rooftop enclosure atop the National Theatre in London. Managing Director Gavin Henry attended on the 11th of this month, and was delighted to be invited on-stage to collect the award. Gavin Henry, MD for SureVoIP, said: “We are extremely delighted to have been finalists in so many award categories, and thrilled to collect the award for Best Business ITSP for Medium Enterprise Award. We continue to demonstrate to our existing customers, partners and newcomers that SureVoIP is dedicated to being one of the best Business VoIP Service Providers in the UK. The fact that we were awarded finalist status across 3 categories (Best ITSP for Medium Enterprises, Best ITSP for Corporate Enterprise and Best VoIP Infrastructure) further strengthens our proposition as a leading business communications provider. " The independent Scottish Telecoms Provider received further recognition from the national organisation earlier this year, as they were one of the very first to receive the coveted Quality Mark in 2016 - made in recognition of the company's innovative approach to business communications. Working from a busy office in the Bridge of Don Technology Park, SureVoIP work with local, national and international companies, providing their unique high-tech service. Anyone who has faced the problem of managing telephony on a business or enterprise scale will identify with the issues they solve on a daily basis.

2016.03.15 - SureVoIP on LINX and 2015

Mar 15th, 2016

Here are some of the things that went on in 2015 via a nice case study we did with LINX – SureVoIP on LINX Case StudySince joining LINX in 2014 and expanding over to IXScotland and IXManchester in 2015, SureVoIP have recorded an increase of 65% in turnover on their 2014 year end. 2016 looks to be an exciting year for its existing as well as new customers and partners, as this means more funds are being re-invested for enhancements and innovation.“We’re a small operator, with low important traffic, but have had to date, a very exciting and interesting self-funded and fully-owned journey with lots of friends made and help from others along the way.”How did LINX help?Gavin Henry, Managing Director of SureVoIP explains;“This has been our best year, with LINX really bringing value via two examples I can tell you about. One proving our technical prowess, leading to a much bigger order with an existing customer. Another being the resilience and low traffic latency LINX enables, allowing us to demonstrate to a customer that they could trust us with their whole corporations VoIP traffic. The former allowed us to directly reach out to much bigger network operator NOCs and be taken seriously with our fault finding.We wouldn’t have that level of access and respect without being a LINX member. This in turn has allowed us to expand our team and invest in becoming a true telecom operator via the SS7 network.”SureVoIP relate much of this success to peering and will happily give technical and non-technical evidence (friendly community, NOC contacts, traceroutes, sector awareness, legal policies etc.) to anyone that wishes to learn more. They consider the network operator and peering sector, especially LINX, as a community which all depends on the co-operation of everyone in order to make the Internet work.Gavin concluded; “LINX has really made our network one of the best out there and we have won some pretty well known names due to the quality of our phone calls and attention to detail for doing things right.”
