Large Enterprises and SMBs Embracing IP Technologies: Report

By Stefania Viscusi, Assignment Desk Editor

Recent industry research has uncovered that voice over IP or “VoIP” remains a hot area in the marketplace for both large enterprises and SMBs.
This is the result of more businesses embracing IP technologies and UC, according to the latest report from Dell’ (News - Alert)Oro Group.
As a result, the market grew almost 10 percent sequentially to $782 million during the third quarter of 2009, the report noted.

“Enterprises as well as small and medium businesses increasingly embrace IP Centrex, unified communications and IP business trunks or, “SIP trunks,” and investment in equipment to support these services offers service providers attractive near-term returns and thus, has been a boost to the market,” said Greg Collins, vice president at Dell’Oro Group.

TNCI, a Boston-based, privately held national integrated communications provider for businesses across the United States, offers customers high-quality business telecommunications solutions from the industry’s best-known carriers.
Through their TNCInet Advantage network, the company offers a suite of solutions including, DIA, Integrated Voice and SIP Trunking, to allow businesses to realize the benefits of true IP convergence.

The bringing together of access networks is motivated by the company’s desire to “get closer to our customers with our application core, which is the business dial tone that we deliver,” Josh Ploude, TNCI’s (News - Alert) director of Network Architecture, told TMCnet.
In addition to these services, the company also partners with carriers such as AT&T (News - Alert), Sprint, Qwest, Level 3, and Covad to provide the most benefit for their customers.

Earlier this year, the company announced it signed a multi-year wholesale contract with AT&T for Voice, Data and IP Networking Solutions. As part of this contract, TNCI (News - Alert) expanded its portfolio of offerings to include AT&T Network Connection or “ANC,” AT&T Voice over Internet Protocol Connect Service or, “AVOICS” as well as AT&T Private Network Transport service.
According to Brenda MacDonald, TNCI’s vice president of Carrier Relations, “AT&T’s Private Network Transport, delivers the advantage of site-to-site connectivity for voice and/or data needs on one of the most reliable Tier 1 IP networks in the country.”
