Primus Telecommunications (News - Alert), an integrated facilities-based provider of advanced communications products and services, has announced that its subsidiary, Primus Telecommunications, has a new Los Angeles sales office.
It’s at One Wilshire Boulevard, and focuses on the SMB (business VoIP) market, selling fully managed VoIP-hosted PBX (News - Alert) (Private Branch Exchange) and data services.
It’s “part of PTGi's ongoing commitment” to the communications market, “including traditional and IP voice, data, mobile services, broadband Internet, collocation, hosting, and outsourced managed services to business and residential consumers in the United States, Canada, Australia, and Brazil," said PTGi chairman, president & CEO Peter Aquino (News - Alert).
Recently, TMC wrote that Primus Canada launched BEX (or BUSINESS ETHERNET XTENDED).
“BEX offers high bandwidth at affordable rates to companies. To support bandwidth-intensive applications, BEX leverages Ethernet-in-the-First-Mile protocols. Businesses are expected to gain from innovative technology and create opportunities for efficiency,” company officials said.
“Primus Canada is continually looking for ways to offer businesses the most up-to-date and leading-edge technology that will allow them to work more efficiently and effectively,” said A.J. Byers, executive vice president of business services, Primus Telecommunications, in a statement. “Companies are now able to take advantage of increased bandwidth at prices that are more affordable than traditional services.”
The company’s hosted VoIP PBX service is described by company officials as “an advanced phone and data system that offers a turnkey managed product for small and medium business customers.”
Evidently it’s designed to deliver the functionality of a premiere PBX system, “and at the same time offer more productivity and enhancements at a lower cost. This allows businesses to invest more in running and growing their businesses.”
In addition, with PTGi's data connections, customers will have options for up to 20 megabits per second for the speed that businesses need in today's workplace, company officials say.
