Wholesale service provider Pac-West Telecomm Inc. has joined VoIP Inc. subsidiary VoiceOne Communications Carrier Direct Program. By joining VoiceOnes Carrier Direct Program, Pac-West has another way to provide IP-to-TDM mediation service to its service provider customers because VoiceOne outfits carriers with softswitches and media gateways. The deal goes both ways, though, since VoiceOne is buying Pac-Wests VoiceSource services, including PSTN On Ramp and Network Database Services.

Progress Telecom LLC has deployed a wireless last-mile solution offering point-to-point or point-to-multipoint Ethernet to wholesale customers serving the Orlando area.

The Progress Telecom wireless last-mile solution is currently offered in Orlando from five PoPs in office buildings and carrier hotels.

InfiniRoute says VoIP Direct provides transparent VoIP peering over one connection. The new service uses the latest releases of InfiniRoutes Routing and VoIP Optimization Engines, which ensure that VoIP traffic over the public Internet is equal to or better than the existing PSTN, the company says.
