One Source Networks strikes voice/data deal with Penn. Lumbermens Mutual

One Source Networks, an emerging facilities-based carrier-agnostic provider that has reignited the Virtual Network Operator concept, has made an impact on Pennsylvania Lumbermens Mutual Insurance Company (PLM), which has chosen One Source to build a customer voice and data network.

In considering its options, PLM, a company that serves the lumber, woodworking and building materials industries, wanted a provider that could not only support high call volumes but could also support future needs without disruption to current service.

To support PLM's call volume, OSN pulled together a turnkey IP-based SIP trunking solution that was complemented by upgrading its Internet backbone bandwidth from 45 Mbps to 100 Mbps.

By using SIP, PLM has a dedicated voice solution that also supports audio conferencing with a 24-hour reservation-less conferencing service available to their extensive employee-base.

While SIP trunking and higher bandwidth are the initial services that OSN is providing to Lumbermens, OSN has built up a broader service package that includes Dedicated Inward Dial (DID) services, Audio Conferencing, Reservation-less Conferencing and Metro Ethernet Point-to-Point service.
