PLEASANTON, Calif., May 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- MegaPath Corporation, a leading provider of managed data, voice, security and hosted IT services in North America, today announced that its SIP Trunking service is compliant with Avaya IP Office. Avaya is a global provider of business collaboration and communication solutions.
MegaPath SIP Trunking helps businesses transition their legacy voice systems to a cloud-based solution that lowers costs, centralizes technology, and simplifies management. The application is now compliance-tested by Avaya for compatibility with Avaya IP Office 8.1.
MegaPath offers SIP Trunking for single-site businesses and Enterprise Trunking for multi-location businesses. The solutions can be purchased as a fully integrated Voice and Data solution over MegaPath's voice-optimized nationwide network or as a stand-alone solution where customers bring their own broadband. When SIP Trunking or Enterprise Trunking are combined with MegaPath data connectivity, voice traffic is prioritized over MegaPath's MPLS-enabled, all-optical IP network, providing the highest Quality of Service (QoS) for consistently clear voice quality.
"According to a recent Infonetics report, SIP Trunking is becoming the fastest growing business VoIP segment because organizations need to increasingly deploy solutions that are cost-effective and that will easily integrate with existing infrastructure," said John Scarborough, Senior Vice President, Marketing and Product Management, MegaPath. "By ensuring that MegaPath's SIP Trunking solutions are compliant with Avaya IP Office, we are providing small-to-medium sized businesses (SMBs), with a reliable, cost-effective, and feature-rich phone system that far surpasses the benefits of old-fashioned PRI and POTS lines."
MegaPath is a Technology Partner in the Avaya DevConnect program—an initiative to develop, market and sell innovative third-party products that interoperate with Avaya technology and extend the value of a company's investment in its network.
As a Technology Partner, MegaPath is eligible to submit products for compliance testing by the Avaya Solution Interoperability and Test Lab. There, a team of Avaya engineers develops a comprehensive test plan for each application to verify whether it is Avaya compatible. Doing so enables businesses to confidently add best-in-class capabilities to their network without having to replace their existing infrastructure—speeding deployment of new applications and reducing both network complexity and implementation costs.
"Technology Partners like MegaPath help Avaya provide the highest quality of communication services to our customers," said Eric Rossman, Vice President, Developer Relations, Avaya. "MegaPath's SIP Trunking solution helps businesses evolve to a feature-rich, hosted VoIP solution, while allowing them to leverage their existing PBX investments."
