Top Speed Data Communications Announces New Alliance With Quest — Technology Management For Business

Telephony solutions for full integration of voice, data, and expanded Internet ProtocoL (IP) capabilities for wide area networks.

Petaluma, CA: September 26, 2005 — Sonoma County-based Top Speed Data Communications, the leading telecom Master Carrier Broker, announces the formation of a new alliance with Quest — Technology Management for Business. By combining the strengths of both firms, this strategic partnership offers western regional businesses the ability to more fully capitalize on rapidly emerging and state-of-the-art voice and data technologies, such as integrating wide area networks (WAN) with Internet Protocol (IP) Telephony solutions. Voice over IP (VoIP) is quickly becoming the standard, especially for companies with multi-locations; the same is true for Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS), another Top Speed Data specialty.

Anthy O’Brien, president of Top Speed Data Communications said, "Fortunately, CEOs and IT officers regard us as a trusted information technology advisor. As companies continue deploying advanced technologies, such as Internet Protocol telephony and MPLS, they are demanding complete packages from one company. Our network service recommendations, together with the expertise of Quest — Technology Consulting and Management in IP Telephony, now enables us to provide the convenience customers value and the seamless integration they increasingly expect for all aspects of voice and data."

Top Speed Data’s Master Telecom Agent status is the result of representing with distinction some 20 leading telecom service providers. California-based Quest, is tapping into this goldmine of expertise in order to leverage their ability to better serve their own customer base and create wide area network (WAN) consulting and implementation services. The types of multi-site businesses benefiting from the Top Speed Data-Quest alliance include the Golden State’s largest drug store chains, banking institutions, and other leading multi-site customers. This combined expertise includes data and voice network review, circuit upgrades, consolidation, carrier project management, WAN design—all essential to optimizing networks handling voice and data traffic.

Tim Burke, Quest president and CEO said, "We are continually working to augment our management services capabilities as we see more of our customers migrating to IP Telephony. The wide area network is key for multi-site companies, and our partnership with Top Speed Data means we can help them design WANs to accommodate voice and data at the lowest cost of ownership."

Business decision makers and IT managers interested in exploring how this new alliance might benefit them are invited to attend an up-coming breakfast briefing at Reno’s Sienna Hotel on Tuesday, 11 October 2005. For more information go to www.questsys.com.
