TelePacific Receives 2012 INTERNET TELEPHONY Product of the Year Award

telepacific U.S. TelePacific Corp., which does business as TelePacific Communications (TelePacific), announced today that TMC, a global, integrated media company, has named TelePacific’s SmartVoice product a recipient of the 2012 INTERNET TELEPHONY Product of the Year Award. This is the third consecutive year that TMC has honored TelePacific with this distinction.

TelePacific’s SmartVoice dynamically integrates local and long distance calling with Internet access and/or MPLS-based IP VPN services. SmartVoice packages offer up to 100 Mbps of bandwidth and 120 call paths available via ISDN primary rate interface (PRI), channel associated signaling (CAS), analog phone lines or a SIP network connection, giving customers the flexibility to use either traditional telephony equipment or an IP PBX.

“We’re honored that the TMC lab technicians and editors at INTERNET TELEPHONY magazine have once again recognized TelePacific as an industry innovator,” says Dick Jalkut, President and Chief Executive Officer of TelePacific. “We’re committed to delivering IP communications solutions that help businesses of all sizes operate more efficiently and productively, and being recognized three years running for succeeding in that regard is rewarding to all of us at TelePacific.”

SmartVoice combined with national telephone numbers (NTNs) gives TelePacific customers anchored in California and Nevada the ability to extend telecommunications access to additional offices coast-to-coast via their private networks. For example, employees at a business headquartered in Los Angeles can place calls at local rates to remote offices nationwide, and employees at remote offices can return those calls without incurring long distance charges. In addition, with virtual NTNs, TelePacific customers can establish a local presence in a remote market and similarly take advantage of local dialing. A physical office is not needed in the remote market.

“It is with pleasure that we recognize TelePacific with a Product of the Year Award. The editors of INTERNET TELEPHONY have verified that SmartVoice displays quality and innovation while providing solutions to real business communications challenges,” stated Rich Tehrani, CEO, TMC. “I would like to congratulate the team at TelePacific for their commitment to advancing IP communication technologies.”

The 2012 Product of the Year winners are published in the January/February 2013 issue of INTERNET TELEPHONY magazine. INTERNET TELEPHONY has been the authority in IP communication since 1998.
