Granite Wins 4 Visionary Spotlight Awards, Including Communications Deployment of the Year

ChannelVision Magazine Recognizes Granite’s Managed Mobility, Direct Routing for Teams and Technology Deployment Solutions for Driving Growth for Partners and Customers

 

QUINCY, Mass., and SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. – July 15, 2021 ChannelVision Magazine has recognized Granite Telecommunications, LLC, a $1.65 billion provider of communications services to multilocation businesses and government agencies, as a winner of four 2021 Visionary Spotlight Awards for innovation in mobility, SIP trunking and multilocation deployments, including Communications Deployment of the Year.

 

Notably, Granite was presented with the VSA Communications Deployment of the Year Award for enabling global consumer and commercial services company Rollins Inc. to reduce annual network costs by migrating from a legacy MPLS network to a managed SD-WAN solution using Granite’s broadband aggregation, network integration services, and access remediation services.

 

Granite also received the VSA Multilocation Deployments Award with its new Nationwide Network Integration Services, which can be leveraged nationwide across vendor products and carrier networks to support enterprise technology deployments.

The new service enables channel partners to capitalize on technology deployments, including those that may fall outside telephony and data networking, even if Granite doesn’t manage that client’s connectivity.

 

Granite earned the VSA Managed Mobility Award for the launch of Granite Vision, a fully managed mobile communications solution that delivers end-to-end business mobility management, turnkey lifecycle management, expense management and help desk support for multiple carriers, devices, and users. Granite Vision frees up key technical personnel and resources while still giving them visibility and control.

 

Finally, Granite also received the VSA SIP Trunking Award for supporting Direct Routing for SIP Trunks to Microsoft Teams, enabling businesses to make and take external phone calls on desktops, laptops, and mobile devices inside the Microsoft Teams collaboration application.

 

“We are honored to present Granite with four Visionary Spotlight Awards across a range of categories,” said Beka Business Media President and CEO Berge Kaprelian. “The breadth of their portfolio enhancements demonstrates forward-thinking, creativity, differentiation, and the ability to help drive growth for channel partners and their customers. Congratulations to the entire team at Granite.”

 

“Granite is appreciative to receive four Visionary Spotlight Awards in 2021,” said Charlie Pagliazzo, Vice President of Channel and Wholesale Distribution for Granite. “Despite the business interruptions we’ve all experienced over the last year, Granite continues to innovate to solve business challenges for our partners and their customers. These awards are a testament to the success of that effort.”
