MegaPath has been offering MPLS since 2003, but Dan Foster, MegaPath’s senior vice president of sales, said it is the first to converged voice over it. The new offer combines managed voice, data and security over an MPLS network, and it supports analog lines, PRI and SIP trunking.
MegaPath’s Duet PRI and Duet SIP Trunking are business-grade phone and Internet T1 services delivered over a private, all-optical MPLS network allowing companies to make the most of their existing digital or new IP PBX. MegaPath Duet analog service is a cost-effective bundled offering that delivers full-featured, unlimited local and long-distance business-class phone and Internet service delivered over a private, all-optical MPLS network. All Duet services include 50 e-mail accounts, spam filtering, domain name management, inbound caller ID name and number, directory listing, 411 directory assistance and E911 emergency service.
Because it offers a multicarrier solution incorporating Layer 2 MPLS providers, Foster explained, MegaPath is able to offer a national footprint. Its biggest competitors are AT&T and Qwest.
Foster added that partners get an upfront spiff equal to 1X monthly recurring charges up to $10,000 plus their normal residuals for the Duet service.
