Two Irish technology companies have agreed a €1.1m partnership deal to provide remote working services during the coronavirus pandemic.  

Dublin-based IP Telecom has signed a multi-year wholesale deal with IT, networking and IP security specialist SenSys Technology Group. 

The deal sees IP Telecom provide Sensys Group with the infrastructure and network capabilities to support SenSys Voice - a set of voice-based solutions including cloud telephony,  broadband connectivity and number portability.

The companies said the deal will form the basis for a major part of their expansion project into 2021 and beyond as it provides end-to-end remote working solutions for companies. 

They said the range of solutions available immediately are ideally suited to enabling businesses impacted by Covid-19 through their remote working capabilities.

IP Telecom Commercial Director Anthony Tattan said that at a time when companies need choices around full-time or hybrid remote-working environments, it is vital that its partners can rely on the sort of reliability, mobility and security that IP Telecom continues to deliver. 

"This partnership further cements the excellent relationship with the team at SenSys and the amazing solutions they deliver from SME to Enterprise level. We look forward to working side by side during these interesting times and supporting Irish businesses," Mr Tattan added. 

SenSys founder Ben Killeen said the partnership with IP Telecom - which provides the backbone and network infrastructure for a wide range of voice based services - complements and enhances the range of solutions the company can provide.

"Our recent expansion into the UK with the opening of our Greater London office in Uxbridge allows us to introduce a full suite of cloud-based solutions and managed IT service solutions, coupled with Voice solutions, immediately to that market," Mr Killeen added.
