Today’s business communication systems are a “living” part of your organization – a complex ecosystem of evolving technologies and critical voice/data services working together to keep your clients and staff connected.  Staying on top of it all can be daunting and prohibitively time consuming. Sunco Telecom Managed Services are an intelligent, cost-saving way to ensure your communication systems (and ultimately your bottom line) stay healthy and robust!

What are Telecom Managed Services?

Traditionally associated with the information technology (IT) field, the term managed services describes the administration of an organization’s computer network by a third-party team. The evolution of this service to include telecommunications is a natural progression with the advent of VoIP (voice over internet protocol) technologies that demand more careful maintenance and management.  In fact, Sunco is proud to be one of the first local companies to offer Telecom Managed Services!     

Depending on the level you choose, Sunco’s Telecom Managed Service packages can include the management of data and voice services (Internet, traditional phone lines, VoIP, SIP trunks), extended hardware warranties, proactive maintenance, software upgrades, Moves/Adds/Changes (MACs) and priority dispatching. To that end, Sunco Telecom Managed Services aim to provide your organization with reliable telecommunications, reduced downtimes, and unparalleled cost effectiveness.
