National telecom firm partners with Tampa tech company Phonism


    Ribbon Communications has partnered with Phonism, a Tampa technology startup, on an initiative designed to make it easier for companies to manage desk phones and other internet protocol devices.

    Ribbon (Nasadaq: RBBN), a Westford, Masachusetts-based company that provides networked software solutions, selected Phonism to co-develop, jointly manage and sell IP device management solutions to carriers and business customers deploying Ribbon’s EdgeView Service Control Center. EdgeView is a network management platform  to monitor, troubleshoot, and quickly rectify problems. Phonism has a software-as-a-service platform to set up and manage voice-over-internet-protocal devices through a central online portal, automating what had been a manual process.
