Midwest Energy & Communications Upgrades Broadband Phone

Alianza Inc., the cloud voice platform company, has announced that Midwest Energy & Communications (MEC) has selected Alianza´s Cloud Voice Platform for its next-gen FTTH VoIP solution, the company said.

With Alianza´s solution, MEC is delivering a better overall user experience to its members, while simplifying voice management and reducing its overall total cost of ownership for VoIP.

MEC´s upgrade provides the electric cooperative with a future-proof, more agile VoIP solution with a superior cost model compared to wholesale hosted VoIP models of the past. MEC realizes impactful operational improvements and automation of key customer lifecycle tasks from the integration of the Cloud Voice Platform with its back-office systems and fiber access elements.

This partnership brings together two Utilities Technology Council (UTC) award winners from 2017. MEC received the UTC APEX Award, recognizing utilities and individuals who have shown extraordinary initiative. Alianza was recognized with the UTC Impact Award for Services for its fiber VoIP solution and the resulting proven customer success.
