Pac-West Telecomm Intros Voice Service Offerings for International Market
March 03, 2009
Pac-West Telecomm, a provider of advanced wholesale telecommunications services, reportedly has launched two new service offerings – tiered rate screening for U.S. termination and complete international termination offering for the overseas voice market.
For U.S.-destined traffic, Pac-West (News - Alert) provides a termination solution that does not require detailed routing to the NPA-NXX or LATA/OCN level. Also, carriers are allowed to choose a cost level that suits their traffic patterns. The calls destined to a rate center with a termination rate equal to or lower than the threshold will be completed and billed according to the cost of that rate center. This facility, according to Pac-West Telecom, lets customers “achieve the cost benefit of detailed routing without the work.”
With Pac-West’s U.S. termination offering, customers benefit not only from the cost certainty of a rate cap but also from the flexibility of customer defined screening classes, the company said. Carriers are also allowed to select multiple screening classes and configure them on separate trunk groups to manage a specific least cost routing strategy, officials said.
Under the international termination offering, Pac-West provides a new international carrier platform that acts as a ‘one stop shop’ for global termination. The solution offers “the flexibility to break out code sets to any level and the ability to create customized rate plans,” company officials say.
Pac-West also says it provides carriers a dedicated international routing platform and robust network infrastructure that enable seamless interoperability and high quality routes with full service delivery and support at competitive prices.
The company’s network architecture supports third-party connectivity and has the capability to meet the demands of carrier-class communications for the networked world. By connecting to Pac-West, customers gain expanded local access coverage while reducing their network equipment overhead, operating costs, and time to market.
“Pac-West’s international product offerings have been built around a rock-solid infrastructure and an experienced team,” said Andy Nickerson, vice president of international solutions. “By actively monitoring and managing our traffic, we ensure that our customers are receiving the best-cost, best quality routes available in the industry.”
According to Hal Turner, chief executive of Pac-West, the addition of U.S. termination service plans designed around the specific needs of international carriers extends the company’s compelling combination of cost and quality leadership into new markets.
Turner said that the international termination solution is an attractive new product for their existing customer base, and it also offers a deeper two-way business relationship to international carriers.
In January, TMCnet reported Pac-West’s acquisition of Texas-based Tex-Link Communications, a voice and data provider in Texas market. The acquisition reportedly helps Pac-West to expand its reach to include “Big 4” Texas markets.
