PAETEC Announces VoIP Origination Expansion at ITEXPO
By Michelle Robart, TMCnet Editor
At the INTERNET TELEPHONY Conference and EXPO in Los Angeles, PAETEC (News - Alert) Holding Corporation today announced it is expanding the company’s wholesale Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) Origination product.
PAETEC has increased VoIP Origination geographic coverage by more than 100 percent and by expanding its VoIP services, it will now assist more than 3,300 rate centers nationwide.
The company’s VoIP Origination service enables VoIP service providers to quickly enter new markets by providing local telephone numbers to clients at their home, business or a remote location.
In addition, call centers and conferencing providers can use VoIP Origination to assign local telephone numbers to their clients. This gives providers a cost-efficient method to establish a local presence.
“While there are many choices for VoIP origination providers, the keys to success are coverage, speed of turn-up, support tools and available ancillary services,” said Doug Derstine, PAETEC’s president-wholesale markets. “PAETEC delivers the technical capabilities and national coverage that you might expect, but we've gone beyond that. We are renowned for focusing on customer needs, and for this product, we’ve met those needs by including the ancillary tools and utilities that make life easier for our customers. This truly distinguishes PAETEC’s VoIP Origination product from others on the market.”
The VoIP Origination product supports Nomadic E-911, local number portability (LNP), toll-free services, and directory assistance. An XML interface facilitates swift deployment, turn-up and ongoing management, which together, reduce overhead for PAETEC’s wholesale and resale customers.
Real-time utilities include LNP submission, and E-911 and Direct Inward Dialing (DID) provisioning. The Web-based utilities add support for usage reporting and trouble ticketing.
The new product is part of PAETEC’s Wholesale VoIP service suite, which also provides Outbound Termination, Equipment Colocation, and Diverse Interconnect Options utilizing Dedicated T1, Aggregated DS1, Aggregated MPLS, or Public IP. The suite helps IP Service Providers improve the reliability, efficiency and ease of connecting with, servicing and supporting their customers.
PAETEC is personalizing communications solutions for business customers across the United States. The company offers a comprehensive suite of data, voice, and IP services, as well as enterprise communications management software, network security solutions, CPE, and managed services.
