Voicenet Announces Private-Label Telephone Services Over Broadband
ATLANTA, GA June 5, 2001 - Voicenet Communications, a next generation communications provider, announced today at SuperComm 2001, the world's largest telecommunications industry trade show, the debut of its private-label telephony services, giving broadband providers and hardware vendors the ability to deliver "second line" voice services to residential and small business customers. Voicenet's technology combines telephone services over broadband connections including cable, DSL, T1 and frame relay, with advanced features including a web-based manager and its patent pending virtual telephone number technology.
In making the announcement, Voicenet's President Carmen DiCamillo stated, "Digital telephone service (DTS) offers broadband service providers, CLEC's and IP end-point manufacturers the ability to launch private-labeled voice services virtually overnight."
Using VoiceOver IP (VoIP) technology, Voicenet's switchless Digital Telephone Service provides origination and termination of phone services, while offering innovative features that are unavailable from Regional Bell Operating Companies (RBOCs), Competitive Local Exchange Carriers (CLECs) and Internet Telephone Service Providers (ITSPs). These unique features include Voicenet's patent pending virtual telephone number technology, Local Presence, allowing customers to choose "local" numbers in cities throughout the U.S.; and the Automated Telephone Manager (ATM), a web-based interface for managing and administrating all features of the Digital Telephone Service.
"By using a VoIP access device, such as Cisco Systems recently deployed ATA 186, broadband customers simply plug into any dedicated, high-speed Internet connection and immediately have two or more IP telephone lines that can be used for voice or fax calls without the need or expense of having the phone company install new circuits," said DiCamillo."
"Voicenet has emerged as a global leader in innovative communications by developing technology that enables the Internet to allow high-quality, telecommunications services." said Steven Toteda, manager of product marketing, Voice Technology Center,Cisco Systems, Inc.
DiCamillo cited several key advantages for broadband providers to deploy DTS, including, speed to market; increased revenues and profits with new service offering, improved competitive positioning; no capital costs and the quality and reliability of Voicenet's National Tier-One IP Backbone.
"Voicenet's DTS offers DSL providers, cable companies and ISPs the ability to enter the voice arena without the high capital expenditures traditionally required to offer voice services to homes and businesses, including existing broadband customers," said DiCamillo.
Cisco is featuring Voicenet's DTS at SuperComm as part of its Tech Talk series in the Cisco Booth.
