Integra furthers multisite business push with nationwide voice service capability

Integra has made yet another step in its journey to serve larger business customers by making its voice services suite available on a nationwide basis.

Large enterprise SIP trunking customers that have wide area networks (WAN) stretching across multiple U.S. markets will be able to connect their remote sites via a centralized IP PBX.

Deployed on its MPLS-enabled IP VPN product, one of the key selling points is that it eliminates the need to manage and maintain multiple phone systems and carrier relationships throughout their respective WAN by putting it onto one common platform.

Joe Harding, senior vice president of product and marketing at Integra, said that the new capability "allows our customers to simplify the management of their network by combining voice, data and network services with a single carrier."

Although the focus is on IP-based voice, the service can also support legacy TDM-based voice configurations including ISDN PRI and digital trunks.

Coming on the heels of its move to make its Managed PBX and Hosted PBX services available across all of its network, providing the nationwide voice capability will enhance its prospects with new and perhaps existing customers that have plans to extend their WAN outside of Integra's immediate territory.
