Wayne, NJ August 12, 2011 – NBS, a leading telecommunications provider, MSP and reseller, and Intelisys, the nation’s leading master agency distributor of business communications services, announced today a new partnership. As leaders in providing innovative and flexible communications solutions for businesses nationwide, NBS and Intelisys have banded together to further expand the solutions that they and their affiliated Sales Partners and sub-agents can provide. Along with traditional data and TDM based telecom offerings, the companies joined forces to take advantage of the synergies that exist between them in two specific service categories: SIP Trunking and Hosted VoIP.

Intelisys Vice President of Partner Sales & Business Development, Rick Ribas, was quite familiar with the versatility and experience that NBS brought to the table, given his dealings with NBS over the past two decades. “NBS has continued to evolve with the industry, rolling out new and innovative IP and private network services in response to end-user demands” stated Ribas. “Their commitment to the channel also distinguishes them from many of the other service providers out there, they’ve been an agent-centric company from the very beginning” he concluded.
