TelCentris may not be a household name service provider, but the San Diego, Ca.-based company, which created the Skype competitor VoxOx, is confident it can make an impact as a nationwide facilities-based CLEC. Already, the CLEC is off to a decent start as it has gained regulatory approval in five states.
What's making the company so confident it can be successful as a nationwide CLEC is its network approach. Unlike the traditional CLEC model where a provider rents last mile copper network facilities, TelCentric's network is based on its own Unified Communications Service Delivery Platform (SDP) network infrastructure.
Rolling out its CLEC operations through its subsidiary TelCentris Communications, the service provider currently has gained regulatory approval to become a CLEC in California, Texas, Florida, New York and, now, Illinois.
