Many school districts, municipal offices and state government agencies are challenged with modernizing their voice and collaboration technology with tight budgets and constrained procurement processes. The NWN-Bandwidth partnership provides a converged VoIP solution using Cisco technology hosted by NWN. It includes a modernized voice, messaging and video collaboration platform.
NWN began working with Bandwidth SIP trunking solutions following its own implementation. Working together, NWN and Bandwidth have provided a number of California school districts with hundreds of SIP trunks, replacing major incumbent carriers.
“NWN is a provider that recognizes how best to compete in an environment with large and diverse carriers,” said Steve Leonard, EVP and general manager at Bandwidth. “We are proud to help NWN diversify its portfolio of services, in a manner that allows them to provide quality technology, quickly and effectively.”
Matthew Nieman, vice president of contracts at NWN. “Bandwidth has helped us improve our service levels for voice offerings, for half the cost we’ve paid historically. Experiencing the benefits of SIP firsthand has helped us approach a market that’s critical to the success of our business, making us more competitive and securing new deals.”
