Minneapolis, MN – September 15, 2016: Telarus, Inc. – a Master Agent and owner of VXSuiteTM and national distributor of voice, data and cloud infrastructure services – and Ecessa, a leading software-defined wide area network (SD-WAN) provider, today announced a formal partnership. The partnership will provide customers with resilient, high-bandwidth, wide area networks (WAN).

“Ecessa makes its partner decisions on how companies match our vision for success,” said Eric Brooker, vice president of sales and marketing at Ecessa. “Channel partners help us serve the needs of our clients and Telarus certainly fits the bill for successful SD-WAN solutions.”

In 2016, Telarus was voted the best Master Agent by the members of the Telecom Association and is a top-three channel partner for nearly all providers it represents.

“Telarus has a game plan similar to Ecessa,” said Patrick Oborn, Telarus co-founder. “Our commitment to delivering the highest level of service is every bit as passionate as that at Ecessa. It’s a team effort to provide exceptional products for our customers.”
