"OpenCNAM Plus is the world's first carrier grade solution that solves the coverage gap problems that have plagued Caller ID Name services since their inception." said Chris Brunner, Telo's co-founder and CEO.  "Telo understands that carriers need a way to set their products apart from their competitors.  With OpenCNAM Plus, carriers are now able to offer superior Caller ID Name services not only to their North American customers, but to all of their customers worldwide."
