Poly joined Telepo’s Alliance Program as a “Strategic Partner.”
Telepo, a European provider of secure cloud and business communication products, launched the initiative in May to provide a system and framework for helping vendors interop and validate their products against Telepo’s portfolio.
The Alliance Program strives to build a strong partner network of “like minded technology vendors.”
Poly noted that it is a “natural” choice for the program due to the number of Telepo service providers that already use Poly products. The alliance is expected to allow the companies to leverage one another’s strengths and networks in the service provider space, create an opportunity in saturated markets and establish new potential for Telepo, Poly and Destiny in the voice and unified communications (UC) markets in other parts of the EMEA and APAC.
Specifically, Poly devices will be increasingly integrated within Telepo’s platform, with Telepo’s applications integrated into Poly+ apps to improve the end-user experience.
“We are excited about this partnership with Telepo and the opportunity to bring the Poly portfolio into the Telepo ecosystem,” said VP, Solution Architecture Service Provider & Alliance with Poly. “The joint solution will allow Telepo based Service Providers in areas such as Northern Europe, South Africa, Japan, New Zealand, Australia, and Singapore to enhance their options for phones, headsets, and video, to take advantage of the Poly portfolio and industry leading audio and video innovations to provide compelling solutions for customers in those regions.”
Telepo is already part of Poly’s Beta program for testing and onboarding new devices upon launch.
