LOS ANGELES, Dec. 14, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- TelePacific Communications, the largest California-based CLEC providing integrated voice and data telecommunications services to the small and medium-sized business ("SMB") customer segment in California and Nevada, announced that its SmartVoice services are now available with Ethernet over Copper deployments. Ethernet over Copper (EoC) offers higher bandwidth at attractive price points compared to traditional T1 lines.

TelePacific's SmartVoice portfolio uses Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) for call control and mobility features and is offered as a dynamically integrated solution with Internet access and/or MPLS. SmartVoice enables customers to optimize their network access resources for voice or data traffic as needed. For example, using SmartVoice, voice traffic is prioritized over data traffic so calls come through clearly. As call paths are released, they dynamically convert to data bandwidth to speed data traffic through the customer's network. This protocol ensures that customers continuously reap the benefit of their network investment based on their calling patterns.

"Combining SmartVoice with Ethernet over Copper delivery is a natural fit," said Laurene Heinsohn, director of VoIP development for TelePacific Communications. "It allows TelePacific to offer our customers yet another option for their voice and data services. SmartVoice is already an outstanding service and now, with Ethernet over Copper, it's even better—more efficient and more cost effective than before."

Available in business lines, PRI, CAS or native SIP handoff, SmartVoice customers can select up to 120 call paths with integrated Internet access and/or MPLS IP-VPN services. SmartVoice over EoC bandwidths are available from 1 Mbps to 20 Mbps, depending on distance from the serving wire center.  In addition, using Ethernet over TDM transport, SmartVoice bandwidth can scale as high as 135 Mbps. The SmartVoice portfolio also includes up to 22 enhanced calling and data feature and local and IntraLATA calling is included for one flat rate.

TelePacific's Ethernet transport portfolio allows the Company to deliver services from 1 Mbps to 1 Gbps, and nearly any increment in between, to enterprise customers. Ethernet offers many benefits to customers, including higher performance, scalable bandwidth, lower cost, ease of use and improved productivity. TelePacific also offers around-the-clock network monitoring to ensure uptime and quickly resolve any issues.
