Time Warner Telecom Launches VoIP-Based Business Solutions Over Metro Ethernet
MIAMI, Feb. 23 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Time Warner Telecom , a leading provider of managed voice and data networking solutions for businesses, today announced its VoIP-based business solutions strategy and new service offerings at the Internet Telephony Conference and Expo in Miami.
Time Warner Telecom is launching its business-class VoIP solution suite, called TW Telecom ONE SOLUTION, to business customers in 21 initial markets. These services are now available in: Atlanta; Albuquerque, N.M.; Austin, Texas; Binghamton, N.Y.; Charlotte, N.C.; Cincinnati; Columbus, Ohio; Dallas; Denver; Greensboro, N.C.; Indianapolis; Memphis, Tenn.; Milwaukee; Minneapolis; New York City; Orlando, Fla.; Portland, Ore.; Raleigh, N.C.; San Antonio, Texas; San Diego; Tampa, Fla. Other Time Warner Telecom markets will have TW Telecom ONE SOLUTION business-class VoIP-based solutions available later this year.
"Our strategic approach to this technology may differ slightly from other service providers, but it is consistent with how we have built our networks, solutions and customer care for businesses," said Michael A. Rouleau, senior vice president -- Strategy and Business Development for Time Warner Telecom. "Our strategy is to layer VoIP-based business-class solutions on our robust metro Ethernet platform. This leverages our network strengths and relationships with customers to meet their mission-critical voice needs. Our industry leadership position in data and IP enables new applications, like VoIP-based services, that work on time, all the time.
"The burning question in the minds of customers is not, what technology, but what solution, will help me win in a very competitive marketplace? How the industry takes technologies, like VoIP, and crafts them into real solutions that deliver real benefits for customers, is what separates the contenders from the pretenders. As more and more businesses converge their voice and data networks, aligning with the right service provider is becoming even more critical," Rouleau added.
The first phase of VoIP-based products offered under TW Telecom ONE SOLUTION, provides solutions for PBX customers. These products include: TW Telecom ONE CONNECT, a VoIP trunking solution; TW Telecom ONE REACH, an IP FX virtual numbering service; and TW Telecom ONE FORUM, a conferencing solution. In concert with this VoIP-based business strategy launch, Time Warner Telecom is offering free VoIP VPN service to all its site-to-site customers in the 44 markets it serves.
"These VoIP-based products can integrate quickly and seamlessly over our packet infrastructure," said Rouleau. "This gives customers the ability to converge their disparate voice and data networks onto one common access infrastructure."
These product solutions improve the flexibility of a customer's voice network, while lowering its overall network and support costs by as much as 40 percent.
TW Telecom ONE SOLUTION delivers the convergence, simplicity, scalability and flexibility that enterprises demand of a carrier-class VoIP provider. This translates into bottom-line efficiencies and cost savings for businesses today and a platform for next generation services tomorrow.
Analysts have called Time Warner Telecom's metro Ethernet solutions suite one of the most comprehensive and competitive in the industry with market leadership position in network reach and breadth of services offered. Since early 2003, Time Warner Telecom has delivered its metro Ethernet services, called Native LAN, to more than 1,250 of its medium and large customers.
"Our business is about delivering one network ... one voice ... one solution to customers," Rouleau added.
