IntelePeer offers a cloud based
communications-as-a-service platform to other service providers and
enterprise customers. Their CloudWorx platform offers
"…carrier-grade, hosted, on-demand model for adding communications
capabilities and features to applications and services without
upfront capital costs."
In effect, they are leveraging cloud technology to provide an on
demand communications service to a variety of customers. Their
communications-as-a-service platform is currently transporting over
20 billion minutes annually between wireless and wireline phones,
and IP devices.
IntelePeer is a great example of the type of company enabled
through fast evolving cloud and managed services
technologies. The types of services and the way they provide them
were virtually unheard of just 10 years ago. Indeed, the
opportunity presented by cloud infrastructure and managed services
is one that all service providers need to investigate and
understand fully. In today's environment where revenue
diversification and margin maximization are paramount, the
opportunities that these technologies enable cannot be ignored.
