LOS ANGELES, California—TelePacific, the largest California-based CLEC providing integrated voice and data telecommunications services to the small and medium-sized business (“SMB”) customer segment in California and Nevada, announced today that TMC, a global, integrated media company, has named TelePacific’s SmartVoice product as a recipient of the 2010 INTERNET TELEPHONY Product of the Year Award.
TelePacific’s SmartVoice portfolio uses Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) for call control and is offered as a dynamically integrated solution with Internet access and/or MPLS-based IP VPN. SmartVoice enables customers to optimize their network access resources for voice or data traffic as needed. For example, voice traffic is prioritized over data traffic so calls come through clearly. As call paths are released, they dynamically convert to data bandwidth to speed data traffic through the customer’s network. This protocol ensures that customers continuously reap the benefit of their network investment based on their calling patterns.
“Products like SmartVoice are one of the ways TelePacific strives to make innovative, business-savvy technologies accessible to small and medium-sized businesses,” says Dick Jalkut, president and CEO of TelePacific. “Having SmartVoice recognized for outstanding innovation reaffirms our commitment and dedication to continue developing and offering products that help our SMB customers leverage telecommunications technologies to be more efficient and effective in their day-to-day business.”
Available in business lines, PRI, CAS, or native SIP handoff, SmartVoice customers can select up to 120 call paths with integrated Internet access and/or MPLS IP-VPN services. SmartVoice with Ethernet over Copper access is available in bandwidth increments from 1 Mbps to 20 Mbps, depending on distance from the serving wire center. In addition, using Ethernet over TDM transport, SmartVoice bandwidth can scale as high as 135 Mbps. The SmartVoice portfolio also includes up to 22 enhanced calling and data features, as well as local and intra-LATA calling, for one flat rate.
“I am pleased to announce TelePacific Communications as a Product of the Year Award winner. The editors of INTERNET TELEPHONY have verified that SmartVoice displays quality and innovation plus provides real needs in the marketplace,” stated Rich Tehrani, CEO, TMC. “I would like to congratulate TelePacific for its commitment to advancing IP communication technologies.”
