Company joins Cloud Communications Alliance to bring cloud solutions to UCaaS providers
WASHINGTON — June 26, 2018 — Alianza Inc., the cloud voice platform company, announced today that more than 60 service providers across the U.S. and Canada now power their suite of retail cloud communications products with Alianza’s Cloud Voice Platform.
In 2009, Alianza was the first to bring to market a software-as-a-service VoIP solution purpose-built for service providers. Since that time, a range of providers—new to VoIP or replacing obsolete VoIP 1.0 and hosted softswitch solutions—have turned to Alianza for their VoIP and unified communications requirements, including cable MSOs, municipal ISPs, rural electric cooperatives, satellite ISPs, MSPs and WISPs.
Alianza’s achievements include:
- More than 300,000 seats on the platform, a nearly sixfold increase since 2015.
- Monthly recurring revenue increased by 55 percent in the past 12 months.
- Eighteen consecutive quarters of revenue growth.
- More than 40 successful migrations from major softswitch and legacy-hosted solutions.
- Success in cable: twelve of the top 50 cable operators have changed voice platforms in the last four years and ten have selected Alianza.
“There’s no comparison; the cloud is the future-proof and most agile way to deliver VoIP and unified communications services to our customers,” commented Mark Masenheimer, Vice President of Operations with Blue Ridge Communications. “Alianza makes delivering and scaling cloud communications easy, and with the Cloud Voice Platform we are best positioned to respond to our customers’ current and future requirements.”
“The growth and adoption of cloud voice platforms follows the broader trend away from legacy managed infrastructure and toward cloud-sourced solutions,” commented Brian Beutler, Alianza’s CEO and co-founder. “Aging VoIP 1.0 and telco switch platforms along with vendor mergers will drive further adoption of cloud solutions like ours.”
Alianza brings leading VoIP SaaS solution to Cloud Communications Alliance
To further its mission to radically improve cloud communications and enable its service provider customers to succeed with VoIP, Alianza has joined the Cloud Communications Alliance.
The CCA is an industry peer association dedicated to fostering the growth of cloud communications. Leaders from communication service providers, vendors and industry analysts come together to network, share best practices, discuss the latest trends and grow their businesses. CCA vendor sponsors are selected based on the power of their technology and the support they provide to the association’s mission—to bring business communications to the cloud.
“The cloud is a powerful way to build, deploy and scale communications, and Alianza offers a compelling solution to our service provider members,” commented Joe Marion, President of Cloud Communications Alliance. “Our shared passion for abandoning hardware and embracing cloud-based solutions makes the company a great match for our organization.”
Alianza is sponsoring and speaking at the Cloud Communications Summit, produced by The Cavell Group in partnership with CCA, this week. Alianza’s Beutler is sharing the role of cloud solutions on the session “The Changing Vendor Landscape” on June 27.

Our Cloud Voice Platform is a web-scale, turnkey virtualized software solution that enables cable, mobile, telco and other broadband providers to rapidly customize, launch and profit from VoIP and UC services.
