Level 3 Communications Debuts Carrier Cloud Voice Solution
May 22, 2013
Level 3 Communications (News - Alert), a provider of communications services, reportedly launched the new Carrier Cloud Voice solution that is designed to help CLECs, wireless carriers and cable multiple system operators (MSOs) to redirect their valuable resources to increase growth and not squander them over building or expanding voice network.
Level 3’s new solution is integrated with the necessary features to empower communications providers to quicken time-to-market, evade high capital investment costs and bring down operating costs associated with running a carrier-grade voice service.
The solution supposedly blends the features of Level 3’s Enhanced Local Service and Alianza’s (News - Alert) cloud-based voice platform and is capable of simplifying operators’ job of delivering voice services to customers.
According to Level 3, its Enhanced Local Service provides the ability to securely originate and terminate calls to and from U.S. telephone numbers provided by Level 3, efficiently aggregate the traffic and hand it off to single or multiple IP endpoints.
While Alianza, a provider of cloud-based voice delivery solutions, maintained that its cloud-based platform delivers VoIP services on the Software as a Service (SaaS (News - Alert)) model that eliminates capital expenses and de-risks VoIP deployment and product innovation decisions.
Shaun Andrews, senior vice president of global voice services at Level 3, commented, “Voice is an important part of many established service bundles, but it is an expensive investment that consumes a lot of internal resources to manage. This complete, carrier-grade solution allows service providers to reliably realize the benefits of a cloud-based model. With several key customers already purchasing our joint solution, we know this value proposition resonates in the marketplace.”
Some of the notable benefits and features of the Level 3 Carrier Cloud Voice solution are: public cloud connectivity available via a large core Internet backbone; private cloud options, including dedicated MPLS, Private Line and Wavelength connections; hybrid solutions that can incorporate Level 3’s entire portfolio of connectivity options; IP Converged solutions to further multiply the economic benefits of the cloud; and more.
