Who We Are
Buy with confidence...60,000 sq. ft. of complete inventories.
Five Stars Telecom Inc., a subsidiary of Metroline Inc., is one of the country's largest independent distributors of technology and telecommunications equipment. Originally created to serve the growing data needs of evolving IP PBX systems, we have expanded our offerings to include IP phones, routers, PoE switches, workstations, and servers from major manufacturers like Avaya, Cisco, Nortel, Polycom, Dell, and HP. Our diversified approach to secondary and independent markets has also allowed us to support newer proprietary and open source IP PBX systems.
We offer complete inventories of both 'New' and 'Factory Like New' products and back all equipment with our One Year Warranty and a 90 Day Advanced Replacement. We have a proven reputation of superior sales, support, and service that is unsurpassed in our industry.
Five Stars Telecom is centrally located in the heart of suburban Detroit. We are a real brick-and-mortar business with real salespeople, customer service representatives, technical support staff, and repair technicians. Unlike some of our competitors, we don't hide behind an eBay name with an email address or a website with a PO box. This is why we advertise our phone number and address on every single listing. Call us anytime with any questions and remember, buy with confidence.
Our guarantee to you is top quality product and superior service at the most competitive prices in the industry.
