Birch launches wholesale service portal, adds cloud PBX, SIP trunking services to portfolio

Birch Communications has introduced new enhancements to its Birch Carrier Solution (BCS) wholesale port and is adding new elements to its wholesale products portfolio, providing customers with new options to deliver voice, data and cloud services to their customer bases.

With the enhanced BCS wholesale portal, carrier customers will be able to get access to a new set of automated tools that will allow them to track and manage orders while growing services into new markets.

The service provider also added TotalCloud PBX, SIP Trunking and its growing base of unified communications as a service (UCaaS) products. 

Ashish Parikh, director of software and IT Development at Birch, said that by offering these new cloud-based products it can enable its "wholesale partners to grow their cloud footprint without large investments in hosting environments, eliminating costly hardware purchases, maintenance and system upkeep."

Adding the cloud services and new automated tools to its wholesale services portfolio makes sense, as they will enable the company to grow the division further with existing and new customers. After launching the unit in 2012, the service provider has continually attracted a number of competitive provider customers, including Bullseye Telecom, Belgacom, Staratos, Telaris, 382 Communications and Primus Telecommunications.

In addition to adding wholesale cloud services, Birch can also address a host of copper-based DSL and fiber-based Ethernet wholesale opportunities.

The service provider recently expanded its DSL broadband footprint by over 60 percent, giving it coverage in 14 states across and adjacent to the Northern Tier, Rockies and Pacific Northwest. At the same time, the CLEC had completed the buildout of its fiber network into an additional 46 buildings in four major U.S. markets: Dallas, Houston, Denver and Los Angeles. Now that it has expanded all three of these product sets into more markets, it can now offer a broader set of services to wholesale customers.
