Utility Telephone (Booth #1425 at the Channel Partners Conference & Expo) has announced upgrades to its Reno-Tahoe network to better serve its voice business customers in the area. With the deployment of a new, local Metaswitch Universal Media Gateway, the company says businesses will benefit from enhanced voice service quality and reliability.
After partnering to deliver a comprehensive set of innovative solutions in the Stockton, Calif., area for years, Utility will now extend these solutions to business customers based in Reno and Tahoe.
After experiencing significant growth in the Reno-Tahoe market, it was time to make the investment in a Metaswitch Universal Media Gateway,” said Jason Mills, Utility president & CEO. Voice traffic will no longer need to be transported to California for processing, as with other carriers, thus improving the network performance for all our customers in the area. This investment is another sign of Utilitys continued dedication to the Northern Nevada marketplace.”
On the heels of Utilitys acquisition of WPTI Telecom in October 2010, as well as a new local direct sales team and service technicians, Utility says it will have a local presence and localized investment in next-generation technology. With the Reno-Tahoe market serving as a key growth area, Utility is preparing for continued double-digit growth across its serving area. Even in the slowed economy, the company says it has consistently experienced such growth over the last few years.
By delivering innovative offerings, such as SIP trunking and a hosted PBX service to businesses, Utility can offer its customers the most complete range of voice services in the market with enhanced service quality due to the local Metaswitch installation,” said Jeff Lattomus, area vice president of sales, Metaswitch.
