May 8, 2023 – GLCloud Connect (GLCC) and ethica Revolutionize the VoIP Market with CloudAccess Integration

GLCloudConnect (GLCC), a leading provider of internet voice and unified communications services, has partnered with ethica to integrate CloudAccess into its UCaaS and CCaaS offerings.
This integration revolutionizes the VoIP market by adding network management over customer provided internet circuits.

GLCC has already established itself as a Canadian leader in this industry through its integration of PSTN connectivity with its internet voice tool sets. With CloudAccess, GLCC now offers voice application prioritization, which sends identified traffic through an express tunnel directly to the network operations center (NOC), ensuring voice and SIP traffic gets the highest priority. For businesses with no access to high-speed broadband connections, GLCC can now layer on bonding to ensure an enterprise grade voice experience regardless of underlying internet sources.
CloudAccess provides critical resiliency by offering same-IP failover, ensuring that no single internet failure will affect a customer’s voice or video call. Encryption is also available, securing voice and video communications with no impact on voice quality.

“We are excited to partner with ethica and integrate CloudAccess into our UCaaS and CCaaS offerings,” said Essie Nouraee, VP of GLCloudConnect. “With the addition of CloudAccess, we can now prioritize voice and SIP traffic, providing our customers with an unmatched solution in the VoIP market. Our resale partners can leverage CloudAccess for complete visibility and management of customer provided internet circuits, driving down support costs while increasing customer satisfaction.”

Brad Lagassé, Managing Director of ethica, added, “We are thrilled to partner with GLCloudConnect and deliver CloudAccess to its customers. Our integration empowers GLCC’s customers with enterprise grade voice experiences regardless of their size or geographic location. We are confident that our partnership with GLCloudConnect will revolutionize the VoIP market.”
