Pandora Networks, a provider of on-demand IP communication services for SMBs, on Tuesday announced a new suite of managed services designed to deliver telco-grade VoIP service for its Worksmart unified communications service.
The iQ Voice Management Suite assesses and monitors services over converged networks or dedicated circuits.
Pandora offers three service options to fit the right network and budget: iQ Assess, iQ Manage and iQ Direct.
iQ Assess puts VoIP on top of an existing data network. It performs automated network assessments on customer premise networks as well as their ISPs to ensure an available connection to Pandora Networks’ data center. Pandora Networks developed iQ Assess for smaller companies.
The iQ Manage service, meanwhile, performs on-demand network assessments and includes real-time QoS monitoring services and a 24/7 technical support team.
The iQ Direct service provides dedicated T1 circuits for VoIP communications. The private circuit does not route to the public Internet, but instead moves IP traffic directly to Pandora Networks’ nearest data. According to the company, iQ Direct is best suited for larger organizations with 50 or more employees.
All services are sold on an annual contract basis with prices starting at $495 per year.
