"We are delighted to have been chosen by the Alliance-com Group, a leader in enterprise VoIP solutions in France, which strengthens our local presence. With the announced termination of PSTN services in 2022, Alliance-com offers a widespread coverage of the French territory. Its regional offices and systems-integrator partners can offer SMBs local support during the critical transition phase to SIP and unified communications" says Roland Leocadio, Sales Director France and Iberia.

Patton selected the Alliance-Com group as a new distributor because of its leadership position in the French enterprise-voice market because of key partnerships with Alcatel-Lucent and Mitel and its ability to offer real technical and commercial added-value to its customers.

"Patton is a recognized global leader in Enterprise VoIP Gateways, eSBCs and IADs, and provides French SMBs with numerous unified communications migration options. Patton's VoIP solutions are already widely deployed in France by more than twenty operators and are a perfect fit with our market demand: providing all the reliability, scalability and performance—along with the local commercial and technical support that we deliver” says Matthieu CHESSARI, Alliance-Com Marketing Director.
