MegaPath Launches Enterprise Trunking for Multi-Location Businesses


By Rory Lidstone
SIP Trunking Report Contributing Writer

MegaPath Corporation today launched a new voice offering called Enterprise Trunking, aimed at multi-location organizations as well as a standalone SIP trunking solution for single-location business customers.


These new solutions serve to augment the company's existing SIP trunking offerings, allowing companies of any size to purchase trunking with or without MegaPath's services.

Enterprise Trunking was designed to help companies reduce costs by consolidating to a single service provider across all of their locations as opposed to a different provider for each site, streamlining their voice communications. As such, Enterprise Trunking allows businesses to manage voice services at multiple locations from a centralized IP PBX over MegaPath's MPLS VPN with bi-directional, real-time quality of service – or over an existing private network.

The company's standalone SIP trunking solution, meanwhile, is best suited to single-location businesses that are seeking a reliable, easy-to-manage VoIP service. Customers of this service can either bring their own broadband connection or purchase it with one of MegaPath's access solutions.

"When compared to PRI and POTS lines, SIP Trunking is a reliable and cost-effective option for large enterprises and small businesses that want to reduce their telephone costs," said Dan Foster, president of Business Markets at MegaPath, in a statement. "By adding these solutions to our SIP Trunking offerings, we are making it even easier for customers to do business with MegaPath by providing the option to bring your own broadband connection or purchase SIP Trunking with one of our access solutions."

MegaPath is one of the most coveted providers of managed data, voice, security and hosted IT services in North America. Its SIP trunking services are interoperable with a number of leading IP PBX systems.

Recently, the company completed an MPLS network upgrade for Tedeschi Food Shops, a convenience store company based in Rockland, Massachusetts. With this upgrade, MegaPath is providing the company with seamless communications capabilities between its headquarters and stores.

In November, MegaPath drastically increased the reach of its Ethernet services, reaching nearly one million businesses in 25 key markets.
