Denver-based IP5280 (News - Alert) Communications has announced the completion and immediate availability of its VoIP SuperNode.
Company officials characterize the new VoIP SuperNode as “the industry's first ultra-low-latency high-capacity business VoIP private network node provided by a nationally leading Internet telephony service provider.”
The SuperNode is delivered over Level 3 Communication's low-latency network routes across the U.S. and Europe. Company officials say this lets IP5280 offer direct on-net coverage to businesses in those regions.
The SuperNode is built inside the IP5280 Clover, which is IP5280's cloud-based computing platform. The way company officials explain it, Clover's architecture uses a network of best-of-breed feature servers -- “including Broadsoft, Microsoft (News - Alert) OCS and open source” -- to deliver “optimal performance, increased redundancy and enhanced customization capabilities at a lower cost point.”
Tech talk: The IP5280 SuperNode is supercharged with 40 lambda wavelengths of capacity, or 400 Gbps of capacity at its direct disposal. The network design includes a direct OC-192 SONET connection directly into IP5280's fully owned and maintained co-location Clover POP (Point-of-Presence) located in the Denver area, centrally accessing Level 3's global network.
In addition, IP5280 offers a portfolio of advanced Voice over IP (VoIP) services, including high-definition voice, unified communications, CRM integration and multi-point video conferencing.
In related news, TMC’s (News - Alert) Carolyn J. Dawson wrote that IP5280 Communications announced the acquisition of the VoIP and Internet services business accounts of RockyNet and the launch of Clover.
RockyNet’s IP telephony acquisition increases IP5280’s customer base by more than 15 percent and also enhances IP5280’s position as the largest business IP telephony communications provider in the Rocky Mountain region. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed; however, the acquisition is immediately accretive to IP5280 and bolsters 2011 revenue, cash flow and EBITDA.
