Through this partnership, providers can now engage with Sol Distribution and access the smart functionality, reliability, and value for money characteristic of the robust Sangoma suite of products.”
As the 2025 deadline for the PSTN shutdown looms, businesses are increasingly seeking the benefits of modern digital communication hardware and software. Graeme Sutton, Managing Director, Sol Distribution, commented, “We are extremely pleased to have partnered with Sangoma Technologies—a trusted global brand with a passion for innovation, reliability, and customer service that aligns perfectly with our own. Together, we can empower resellers and system integrators with transformative business communication solutions, offering a competitive edge, new revenue streams, and attractive margins.”
