Excel Switching Corp. (Booth 126) and Platform Experts Inc. now are offering a carrier-grade voice over broadband offering for small to medium CLECs.
Platform Experts SiPX, the companys newest product based on Excel, enables CLECs to operate as VoIP broadband phone service providers.
The Excel-based solution from Platform Experts has allowed us to capitalize on new market opportunities provided by VoIP without [compromising] our existing service offering or customer base, says Bob Charish, COO at Xchange Telecom Inc., a facilities-based provider of local, long-distance, calling card and prepaid services. We see a migration from UNE-P to broadband as a viable way to continue to grow our business. We have been able to quickly add new subscribers and customize our service offerings on the fly.
Xchange launched a broadband telephony service called Sipmedia in August 2003 with SipX as the foundation.
