Lingo® Upgrades Network and Technology Platforms
Strong customer demand prompts the upgrade of networks and technology platforms.
ATLANTA, July 31, 2019 – Lingo Communications, LLC. (“Lingo”), a leading global Cloud/UC communications and managed service provider dedicated to serving the SMB, Carrier and Consumer markets, announced today that it has upgraded its network and technology platforms in response to customer and sales demand.
Lingo established its full-year 2019 annual synergy goal of $8.7 million following the Impact Telecom and Fusion Connect acquisitions in early 2019. Once that goal was established, the combined company acted swiftly to begin to integrate all aspects of the business into one seamless enterprise.
These integration efforts are paying off and Lingo now expects to exceed the 2019 synergy goal of $8.7 million based on the results through June 30, 2019.
- Sansay™ Class4 Switch Upgrades – Lingo, in response to customer and volume demand, expanded its existing geo-redundant Sansay switch network facilities. This upgrade adds 40% more volume capacity to absorb current and anticipated customer and voice minute growth. Andy Voss, CEO of Sansay said, “Most carriers wait until there are capacity issues effecting their customers before making upgrades. It is encouraging to see Lingo being proactive in their network capacity initiatives.”
- Netsapiens™ Cloud/UC Upgrade – Lingo, in response to customer and volume demand, upgraded its existing geo-redundant Netsapiens Cloud/UC network facilities in order to accommodate up to 80,000 additional subscribers. In addition to the increased capacity, Lingo remains at the front edge of code revisions and feature testing to best serve the cloud SMB market.
- Polycom – Lingo, in response to customer demand, expanded its support for additional edge products from Polycom and other manufacturers as we seek to enhance the migration of more customers from legacy communications products to Cloud/UC or wireless products.
