Level 3 Communications, Inc. (www.Level3.com) today announced that it has launched its channel partner program in Europe, which will enable resellers to offer Level 3’s Voice-over-IP and other services to their small and medium-size business customers.
“Level 3’s channel partner program is an integral component of the company’s growth strategy, and it has enjoyed real success since its introduction in North America at the beginning of the year,” said Brady Rafuse, president of European operations for Level 3.
Level 3 formally launched the EU version of the Level(3)EnabledSM Partner Program today at the Margin in IP event in Birmingham and is now actively recruiting members.

“Voice-over-IP is revolutionizing the business of telecom by enabling more companies to compete effectively in the enterprise space,” Rafuse said.
John Irvine, vice president of Level 3’s business and channel development in Europe, noted that program members can either sell services under their own name or choose to leverage the Level 3 brand.
