McLeodUSA Debuts Trunking Platform

McLeodUSA Inc. (Booth 324) introduced a platform for business customers that provides voice and data services, including direct VoIP peering between a customers IP PBX and the McLeodUSA network.

McLeodUSA is looking for new partners and hopes to forge some new relationships at the Channel Partners Conference & Expo.

I am extremely excited to leverage our growing base of channel partners for the distribution of this new product, said John Dumbleton, McLeodUSA group vice president of wholesale services and indirect channels. The McLeodUSA IP PBX trunking solution is a solid addition to an already strong product lineup for our agents as they solve complex communications challenges with their clients.

McLeodUSA IP PBX trunking delivers integrated voice and data services to IP PBX systems over a single high-speed connection with bandwidth capabilities ranging from 1.5mbps to 45mbps. The platform is intended to increase calling capacity, reduce costs for local and long-distance calls, and provide a direct SIP interface between an IP PBX and the McLeodUSA VoIP network, the company said.

Additionally, IP PBX trunking customers receive free site-to-site calling with the convenience of abbreviated dialing between all locations served by McLeodUSA advanced products.

IP PBX trunking is designed to suit the needs of the voice and data applications for businesses with one or more locations.

McLeodUSA IP PBX trunking includes six-to-50 voice calling paths with unlimited local calling and expanded local calling area over a single T1 circuit; high-speed Internet access with up to 1.5mbps of bandwidth; and long-distance. Business customers may combine IP PBX trunking with McLeodUSAs IP VPN service to create secure private voice and data networking for enterprise customers with multiple business locations or remote teleworkers.

Perhaps the most important benefit to McLeodUSA IP PBX trunking is the fact that all voice and data traffic travels on an IP network owned and managed by McLeodUSA, said Chris MacFarland, CTO of McLeodUSA. We have invested over $3 billion in our 17,000-route-mile network covering 20 states.
