Integra enhances public sector, nonprofit reach with MiCTA membership

Integra has taken another step towards advancing its government, education and healthcare sales funnels by becoming a member of MiCTA, a nationwide group purchasing organization for communications and network services.

Existing MiCTA customers will now be able to get access to Integra's array of IP-based and Ethernet services through MiCTA's procurement schedule.

Under the terms of its membership, Integra was given approval in 11 MiCTA product and service categories, including Voice Communications, Data Networking and Internet, Managed and Cloud Services and Colocation and Equipment Services.

Gaining a spot on the MiCTA schedule fits in well with Integra's growth strategy, which has been to increase its focus on mid-sized regional businesses that reside in its region.

MiCTA is just one of many government vehicles that Integra now offers its services.

Over the past year, the service provider has been continually enhancing its presence in the public sector and nonprofit industry segments, winning contract awards from the state of California's CALNET 3 initiative and securing a seat on the General Service Administration's (GSA) Region 8 contract.

Potential customers that are served under MiCTA and other government-related contracts will also be able to get access to Integra's growing set of network and service capabilities. The service provider completed an optical network route between Salt Lake City and Sacramento in January and upped its on-net data center footprint to 92 total centers.
