Alianza brings wholesale VoIP to Canada

Alianza, an emerging wholesale cloud-based voice provider, has made Canada its next service market destination.

The service provider said that it will apply the five years of experience it gained in the United States to help an array of Canadian cable companies, ISPs, telcos and resellers to quickly introduce a VoIP service without the cost of building it themselves.

The system leverages a software as a service (SaaS) model that it says eliminates capital expenses and reduces risks for VoIP deployment and product innovation decisions.

The company's move into Canada is not based on a build-it-and-they-will-come proposition. It is already delivering the service to a major Canadian ISP.

Besides providing a turnkey VoIP solution, Alianza has made its platform more palatable for Canadian operators by adding support for the French language, local star codes and emergency services, as well as interconnect agreements in Canada.

Alianza may have not revealed the identity of its Canadian customer, but its movement into the country is part of a broader ongoing expansion the company has been taking over the past year.

Besides its geographic expansion, the service provider has bolstered its management team with a number of seasoned telecom industry executives and established a joint cloud-based voice solution with Level 3 Communications.
