Serving government agencies and businesses since 1998, Oakland-based CBX selects Appia to broaden its portfolio of communication and network services.

OAKLAND, Calif. – June 10, 2010 – Appia Communications announced today that CBX Technologies has joined Appia’s rapidly-growing nationwide network of partners.

Based in Oakland, CBX provides companies and government agencies with a complete suite of integrated IT and professional services. Appia is a nationwide provider of remotely managed communication and network services.

Through the agreement, CBX is authorized to offer all of Appia’s managed voice, data, video and network services to both new and existing clients. CBX founder Christian D’Andrade said that the partnership will help keep his clients on the leading edge of today’s technologies.

“Voice over IP (VoIP) has become an integral factor in network communications, bringing lower operational costs, greater flexibility, and a variety of enhanced applications,” D’Andrade said. “Video communication is emerging in a big way, with 80% of all Internet traffic expected to be video by 2015. And with Appia’s managed services, it’s all in the cloud. There’s no PBX or MCU to worry about.”

“Cloud services are simply a way to outsource headaches to a third party on a pay-as-you-use engagement model,” said Jason Ulm, Appia’s vice president of sales. “By using Appia’s services, CBX can help customers turn huge upfront capital expenses into low operating expenses, which is a very positive move for any midsize organization.

“CBX has a tremendous track record and we think we’ll do great things together.”
