AT&T Wholesale announced Tuesday that reseller TNCI has signed a multiyear wholesale contract with AT&T for voice and data services. TNCI sells services through its nationwide independent agent channel to small and medium businesses.
Under the agreement, AT&T will provide TNIC with AT&T Network Connection (ANC), AT&T VoIP Connect Service (AVOICS) and AT&T Private Network Transport (PNT) services. TNCI also uses AT&T local voice services under an existing contract.
ANC and AVOICS are AT&T’s flagship wholesale voice TDM and IP voice platforms. ANC provides high-volume unbranded transport and termination of long-distance voice traffic over the AT&T network. AVOICS offers IP-based connectivity to AT&T’s network and termination of IP voice traffic over the PSTN. PNT is a network-based IP VPN solution over the AT&T IP network, utilizing Multiprotocol Label Switching, an advanced switching technology.
TNCI recently developed and deployed its own TNCI suite of TNCInet Advantage private IP solutions.
“Our agreement with AT&T is an important step forward in a strategy that began with our TNCInet Advantage network deployment,” said Brian Twomey, president of TNCI. “We must deliver solutions that address the issues customers face today while making it possible for them to benefit from the latest available technology. Our agents must offer customers demonstrable improvements in cost, productivity, and efficiency while paving the way for the future of their business as well. We chose AT&T for its synergy with our strategy including proven service portfolio, single interface, provisioning and project management, so that we can focus on our agents and customers.”
