Telecoms Get Help with New Service Provider Program

Microsoft Corp. announces new Communications Section Alliance Program to help telecoms drive new business.

Last week Microsoft Corp. announced the Communications Section Alliance Program (CASP), a new initiative designed to "enable service providers to promote and develop new customer solutions," according to the company.

The program, offered through the Microsoft Partner Solution Center (MPSC), gives service providers access to Microsoft teams and other resources, creating a collaborative development process.

So far, Bell Canada and Swisscom Mobile have signed up for the initiative.

"The goal of Microsoft Communications Sector Alliance Program and the Microsoft Partner Solutions Center is to help providers maintain a competitive edge and take full advantage of today's business opportunities," Jarmo Paukkunen, director of the MPSC, said in a printed statement.

The Microsoft Partner Solutions Center, launched in 2000, is a 21,000-square-foot facility located in Redmond, Wash. According to Microsoft, it offers $100 million in equipment resources, training facilities, meeting rooms and lab space.
