Qwest Communications International Inc. (Booth 1204) recently announced an important addition to its wholesale product portfolio. Qwest IP Solutions is a WAN solution that simplifies complex data communications for wholesale customers.
Based on Qwests nationwide MPLS network, Qwest IP Solutions is designed around customers needs, which are growing more complex as businesses implement new applications, such as VoIP and real-time streaming multimedia.
Qwest IP Solutions also is backed by industry-leading SLAs that measure performance.
Derek Koecher, director of wholesale for Qwest, said, With Qwest IP Solutions, customers do not have to render their current networks obsolete. Instead, we help them use their existing investments to implement a better solution.
Qwest IP Solutions underscore an important shift in the telecom industry, as traditional voice services are expected to decline, and data and IP solutions continue to grow. Qwest is committed to delivering next-generation solutions, including VoIP, and IP termination and origination. The introduction of Qwest IP Solutions continues the companys push into strategic and advanced solutions that help wholesale customers bring their end users to the next level of communications.
Another important trend Qwest is supporting is the use of OCN billing strategies. To ensure wholesale customers get the best value, Qwest has announced a new enhancement to its IP voice terminating service, providing OCN billing to wholesale facilities-based carrier customers. The new billing option provides pricing at the individual OCN/LATA level, giving customers the ability to easily reconcile their billing, and manage costs more effectively.
Offering IP voice terminating services with our OCN billing solution is a telling example of how were designing our services around our customers needs, said Koecher.
