One Association with Three Websites
TAnews.net is one of three websites published by Telecom Association ("TA"), a membership organization of 3,800 information & communications technology ("ICT") professionals founded in 1995.
This www.TAnews.us website connects ICT industry "partners" and "vendors" for the purpose of finding the best ICT solutions to distribute to business end user customers. TA's www.ICT.Guide is a website that educates business end users about the value of purchasing ICT solutions through independent ICT partners and their vetted ICT vendors. TA's www.TA1000.com website helps business end users verify that the ICT partner they are considering is peer reviewed and recommended by the ICT industry.
Members We Serve
PARTNERS - Partners are independent consultants and sales partners that help business end-users choose the right ICT solution (anything that mixes telecom and IT) for their business.
VENDORS - Vendors are the companies that create the ICT solutions (voice & data networks, communications equipment, software, managed services, etc.) that independent sales partners distribute to business end users. In addition to selling through partners, vendors may also sell directly to business end-users.
END USERS - End users turn to TA to get vendor neutral information about how to best integrate a multi-vendor ICT solution as well as how to choose a peer-reviewed independent sales partner/consultant who will bring in the right ICT vendors.
OTHERS - We also accept as members anyone interested in providing services to our members as well as individuals and firms interested in becoming an ICT vendor or independent sales partner/consultant.
