DURHAM … Bandwidth.com, an online site for business Internet connectivity, is rolling out its partner programs, extending access to its proprietary databases and systems to value-added resellers, consultants and integrators across North America.

The program offers partners access to a selection across the nation’s major carriers, competitive pricing and the ability to co-brand Bandwidth.com’s free suite of services, all in a web-based interface. The flagship program is the Bandwidth.com Premier Partner, a LAN or WAN consultant, integrator or security expert that provides enterprise assistance with hardware, software or design but has not focused previously on connectivity options.

The company says the introduction of its Certified Partner Program enables consultants to exploit this market niche, win new business and increase services offered to existing clients while remaining focused on their fundamental skill sets. Consultants also can maintain carrier neutrality by providing the Bandwidth.com “Best Price Guarantee” from more than 25 top tier carriers, the company says.

“Bandwidth.com Certified Partners position themselves to assist their clients with the best of today’s internetworking solutions, from network design and security, to carrier-neutral connectivity,” Director of Partner Programs Greg Fitts said in a statement. “Comparative pricing from our partner extranet allows partners to provide clients with real life ROI analysis for network or system upgrades and a substantial cost savings.”

Bandwidth.com designs, procures and coordinates the deployment of data telecommunications services for large, medium and small enterprise customers. It distributes nationally branded Internet and data telecommunications along with its own private brand of value-added services, selling more than $2.5 million of data connectivity monthly.
