BE Wholesale, the award winning wholesale broadband division of the O2/Telefonica group, has announced a new strategic partnership with Azzurri Communications, the leading UK systems integrator and managed services provider.

The partnership will see Azzurri extend its unified communications and converged network solutions through BE’s extensive network, including new services, such as those dependent on real-time video and voice data. BE Wholesale in turn will broaden its reach in the corporate market through Azzurri’s extensive enterprise customer base.

BE Wholesale will form an integral part of Azzurri’s new Intelligent Cloud Optimised Network, (ICON) platform delivering best of breed xDSL connectivity backed with robust latency, jitter & packet loss guarantees, essential to supporting today’s cloud based applications.

BE Wholesale has a reputation for quality and reliability, as evidenced by Ofcom, which has stated that BE Wholesale’s superfast, low—congestion ADSL2+ network offers the fastest DSL connectivity speeds of any wholesale provider in the UK. With ADSL2+ built from the ground up, BE Wholesale’s network delivers industry-leading up-load and down-load speeds, without the congestion problems typically faced by legacy competitors.

“BE Wholesale is building a formidable reputation in the channel for the quality of its network and service, as well as for the close partner relationships that we build,” said Dan Cunliffe, Head of BE Wholesale. “We have made a number of partnership announcements recently but working with Azzurri is particularly significant as it gives the enterprise market access to our quality network and services through a strategic partner such as Azzurri.”

Rufus Grig, Chief Technology Officer, Azzurri Communications, added: “We looked at a number of fixed network operators to form part of our ICON platform and we believe BE Wholesale can offer very high levels of customer experience and service. “
