Telnic Announces Accredited Technology Partner Programme

    NEW YORK, Jan. 16 /CNW/ - Telnic Limited (, the
registry operator for the new .tel top level domain, today announced the
opening of the Telnic Accredited Technology Partner programme for
organizations looking to integrate their technology products and services with
.tel. This free and optional programme is available to all organizations
wishing to seamlessly integrate their offerings with the .tel service.
    "We've seen a huge response from organizations of all types about the
.tel," said Henri Asseily, CTO and Chief Strategist for Telnic Limited, "We're
now creating a formal program that will enable technology and web services
providers of all types to work with us to make sure that they can integrate
with the .tel platform seamlessly."
    The .tel domain provides individuals and businesses with a communications
'hub' which enables them to store all types of contact information and publish
it to any device connected to the internet. As a platform entirely under the
user's control, this enables them to:

    -   Transition between communications channels and technologies easily
        dependent on how new technologies and channels develop

    -   Adopt and replace existing communications channels such as landline
        numbers with voice over IP (VoIP) numbers easily, transitioning to
        lower-cost solutions

    -   Adopt new customer relationship management (CRM) technologies that
        enable them to enhance their customer experience

    -   Use the .tel domain as a shield to protect private contact
        information, thus making it their single point of contact in third
        party services like social and business networks

    -   Manage in a neutral space subscriptions to other web services,
        allowing their APIs to talk under their control within their .tel

    An organization gaining Telnic Accredited Technology Partner status will
have worked with Telnic to test, document, integrate and accredit its
technology solution to work with the .tel top level domain (TLD). The specific
technology will also carry a stamp of approval from .tel.
    Accreditation includes a shared testing process in order to make sure
that the application works correctly with communications information stored
within the Domain Name System (DNS), the APIs and Web Proxy pages allowing
customers to access and interact with the .tel information, and the TelHosting
platform which enables customers to input, manage and publish information in
their .tel domain.

of this programme include:
