PAETEC Announces Addition of its 48x PBX to the Popular IP Simple Bundle

This week, PAETEC Holding Corp. (NASDAQ GS: PAET), which provides data, voice, and Internet solutions to business-class customers nationwide, announced the addition of the PAETEC 48x Phone System into it’s IP Simple bundle of IP-based services for small and medium-sized businesses.

IP Simple, launched in September of 2009, is now one of PAETEC’s fastest growing products. The bundle combines PAETEC’s Dynamic IP VoIP product with its award winning IP-based PBX and phones all for a single monthly fee while requiring no capital outlay. The new PAETEC 48x phone system has nearly twice the capacity of the previous 24x system with two T-1 interfaces, and is designed for companies up to 250 employees per site.

“The addition of the 48x dramatically expands the number of businesses that can benefit from our popular IP Simple Bundle,” said John Chapman, PAETEC’s senior vice president of marketing. “PAETEC is unique in that we’re a nationwide voice and data services provider and also design and manufacture our own award-winning phone systems for small and medium-sized businesses. Since we launched the IP Simple product, the positive response from business customers from coast-to-coast has been overwhelming.”

With the IP Simple bundle, customers may choose from the following equipment to complete their IP Simple bundle:

  • IP PBX – 48x or 6x
  • IP Phones – 9204, 9212 and/or 9224
  • Optional Software -Call Assistant, Call Queuing, Conference Center, Advanced Call Distribution, Advanced Multi-Site and Multi Language Pack.

Since IP Simple Solutions is an equipment rental program, at the end of their initial term agreement customers have the option of retaining and continuing with the same monthly rental payments or returning the equipment to PAETEC.

IP Simple Solutions is a result of PAETEC’s acquisition of the IP PBX manufacturer, Allworx, in 2007. The IP Simple Bundle was named a 2009 Product of the Year by Communications Solutions magazine. In October, 2008, PAETEC’s SIP Trunking was named Most Innovative Product by Telephony Magazine and in August, 2010, Business Solutions Magazine named the Allworx 6x and 9204 as Best Channel Product in the IP PBX and IP Phone categories respectively.

MegaPath to SMBs Nationwide: Save Time and Money with VoIP

MegaPath, Inc., the leading provider of managed IP data, voice, and security services in North America, is making it easier for small-to-medium sized businesses (SMBs) to work smarter, realize significant cost savings and increase productivity with MegaPath’s Hosted Voice. The Company is making it even easier for organizations to see increased cost savings with its free Cisco SPA 303G phone for each employee, with the purchase of an unlimited or global Hosted Voice calling plan and a minimum of five lines.

The Rofo Group has already taken advantage of the benefits of the Hosted Voice free phone promotion to control costs. After moving to a new office location, Rofo tried Voice over IP (VoIP) with another provider, but was disappointed with the call quality. Rofo was able to transition from its previous provider to Hosted Voice without any downtime. Additionally, Hosted Voice provides Rofo with the productivity-enhancing call features and quality it sought, without the upfront expenses.

“In order to stay ahead of the game, small-to-mid sized businesses need solutions that enable them to operate as productively and cost-effectively as possible. One way is to implement VoIP within their business,” said Bruce Chatterley, President, Business Markets, MegaPath. “VoIP offers significant savings in both time and money. As a fully-managed voice and data services provider, we help smaller businesses save money on their communications services so that they can invest more in their core business.”

According to Infonetics Research’s recent “VoIP and Unified Communications Services and Subscribers”1 report, the business VoIP market grew eight percent in the first half of 2010. As more SMBs look to VoIP as a way to cut costs, MegaPath is working with customers like Rofo to deliver voice solutions that meet their unique business needs and save money without sacrificing quality. MegaPath, which recently merged with the Covad and Speakeasy brands, has made it easier than ever to switch to Hosted Voice so that SMBs can take advantage of this solution. In addition to its free phone promotion, MegaPath provides everything a company needs to get started including the broadband connection, a small voice gateway, unlimited calling plans, high voice quality (Quality of Service), rapid deployment and mobile and remote worker integration.
