Nitel, Inc., a nationally recognized provider of telecommunications network services, today announced a new partnership with Atlanta based master agent MicroCorp. As a Nitel partner, MicroCorp agents will expand their product offering to include Nitel’s nationwide MPLS, Ethernet, dedicated Internet and private line products.

MicroCorp agents will benefit from Nitel’s channel program, voted as one of the 50 best by readers of industry publication Channel Partners magazine. The program offers technical and back-office resources focused on helping partners drive their opportunities, while also providing training and tools to increase their chances of success.

As a leading master agency with over 1,500 professional agents and VARs across the country, MicroCorp offers a significant distribution channel for Nitel’s data services. With Nitel’s competitive pricing and attentive client service, MicroCorp agents will be well positioned to achieve greater success in the marketplace.

“Nitel provides MicroCorp Agents and VARs with a wide variety of nationwide connectivity services that can reach markets that are traditionally very difficult to service,” said Brad Miehl, MicroCorp President and CEO. “As a result, MicroCorp is able to offer solutions that our channel and customers demand regardless of a customer’s geographic location.”

“We are very excited about our partnership with MicroCorp. They have an outstanding reputation in the industry,” commented Nitel CEO Rick Stern. “We believe our MPLS, Ethernet, Internet and private line solutions will give MicroCorp agents a significant competitive advantage in the marketplace, particularly outside tier 1 markets where Nitel’s value is strongest.”
