The expansion of fiber networks has exploded in the past few years, fueled by customer demand for more bandwidth, government funding (RDOF, CAF II, Rural Connect, and state grants programs), and new ISP entrants. And VoIP is a natural and smart service add-on for ISPs to maximize their revenue and enhance the customer experience.
People love texting. According to a CTIA Annual Survey, there were 2.1 TRILLION messages exchanged in 2019. Savvy businesses use SMS to connect, engage with their customers, and digitally transform communications for the markets they serve. With a business text messaging solution, service providers can leverage this powerful communications tool to better serve their customers. Business text messaging services are a great way for CSPs to improve market differentiation and expand commercial sales opportunities.

At Alianza, our vision is to deliver the world’s best cloud communications platform for service providers. Over the last twelve years, we have developed a proprietary platform that includes a robust suite of voice products. Last fall we added business text messaging capabilities to our platform through our acquisition of Message Hopper. Today we took another big step forward in advancing our vision by completing our acquisition of CounterPath.
VoIP is great, it's growing, and it's essential to rural broadband that electric cooperatives deploying to connect their communities. Almost every electric cooperative delivers cloud communications as part of its broadband portfolio as it makes good business sense (see Top 3 Reasons to Add VoIP to FTTH).
To our Customers: Alianza’s purpose of connecting people is more important than ever. You make that possible; you are enabling the critical communications homes and businesses rely on during this time of social distancing. I applaud you and your teams for your dedication and business flexibility as you deliver essential services to your subscribers.
The world over hates robocalls. The telecommunications industry and regulatory bodies are taking action to combat them. Central to solving one of the robocall challenges is a new standard called STIR/SHAKEN. But call blocking is needed too, and there are solutions for that available today. Alianza is addressing both requirements.
As we mark our 10th anniversary transforming cloud communications, it's time to reflect back and look forward.
For over a decade, Broadband Communities Magazine has recognized organizations that lead the way in "building a fiber-connected world" in its Top 100 Fiber-To-The-Home (FTTH) list. Alianza is one of those companies and we are honored as to be named one of the FTTH leaders and innovators for 2017 for our Cloud Voice Platform that powers VoIP phone services for broadband ISPs.
Last week at the UTC Telecom and Technology annual show Alianza was recognized with the UTC Impact Award for services. The Utilities Technology Council (UTC), a trade association for power utilities, awards this annually to a UTC Associate Member that is “making a great impact on the utilities industry through an innovative and proven solution.”
Start-ups always have the zeal and faith that what they are doing is right, helpful and transformative. It's nice when that vision gets validated from analysts and press, especially critical, show-me-the-proof ones. I'm very pleased that Alianza has received that recognition from Light Reading.
