Unified Communications Company Broadvox Chosen by US Signal as Preferred SIP Provider


December 02, 2010

Recognizing a real need in the marketplace, and finding a way to fill that niche, isn’t always easy but it is a surefire way to experience business success. A recent example involves two companies teaming up to offer customers something they really value: high phone and unified communications services at competitive rates.

Last month, Broadvox was picked as a preferred SIP provider by US Signal, a company that offers dedicated Internet access and Multi Protocol Label Switching (MPLS) data networks to in the Midwest. These services are delivered via 6,000 miles of long-haul fiber optic networks and more than 700 miles of fiber optic metro rings. 

The two companies have integrated their capabilities to provide US Signal’s internet customers with seamless access to Broadvox’s VoIP/SIP-based unified communications services. This means subscribers can add Broadvox’s SIP trunking services to access the Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN) without the expense of ISDN primary rate interfaces (PRIs) or local PSTN gateways.

Steve Vander Pol, US Signal’s product manager, explained that customers now have access to a dedicated connection back by a solid service level agreement that guarantees high quality voice signal. This is made possible by using Quality of Service (QoS) capabilities to connect US Signal’s network with Broadvox’s SIP services.

“We are very happy about our peering connection and the simplicity it brings to meeting our customers VoIP and SIP trunking needs” said Vander Pol, in a media statement.

He added that US Signal picked Broadvox because of that company’s history of excellence and its robust product offerings.

Broadvox’s vice president of marketing and sales, David Byrd, was equally enthusiastic about the partnership.

“US Signal has an experienced and growing channel to sell and support its markets,” Byrd said in a statement to the media. “This peering relationship will enable Broadvox to provide SIP Trunks to expand those revenue opportunities and an industry leading SLA.”
