Covad Communications Group Inc., a national provider of integrated voice and data communications, announced today that customers using its PBXi and PBXi Plus business-class VoIP offerings now can take advantage of unlimited domestic monthly minutes, up to 101,000 minutes per site.
With unlimited domestic monthly minutes, PBXi Plus becomes an even better fit for how small and medium businesses use VoIP, said John Grady, director of product management for Covad. PBXi Plus provides customers who have already invested in a premise-based solution, an unbeatable value combination: award-winning VoIP technology, the quality of service of Covads nationwide network, a seamless installation experience and no upfront charges.
Covads PBXi Plus targets small businesses and distributed enterprises with existing on-premise phone equipment. The product integrates seamlessly into business phone systems because all of the original handsets, phone numbers and equipment are retained. PBXi Plus requires no upfront expense: Covad provides professional installation and a Cisco 2431 router at no charge. Full e-911 service is included.
PBXi Plus runs over Covad’s Voice-Optimized Access (VOA) T1 lines. VOA allows Covad to manage the quality of voice and data services simultaneously and enables customer cost savings of up to 55 percent, while eliminating the need for businesses to maintain separate voice and data networks, according to the company.
The product is based on the Covad hosted platform and supports the features of the PBX system and other value-added features, including new online management and configuration capabilities. Covad also offers a hosted business-class VoIP product, Covad vPBX, for customers who are replacing existing premise-based solutions in favor of the convenience and reliability of a fully managed VoIP solution.
The service plan upgrade automatically will be reflected in existing customers June invoices.
