FairPoint Launches UC Cloud
CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- FairPoint Communications, Inc., a provider of advanced communications in northern New England, today announced its introduction of cloud services with the availability of Hosted Private Branch Exchange (Hosted PBX) service over the largest fiber network in the region.
FairPoint’s Hosted PBX is an Internet Protocol-based voice and unified communications application that provides organizations the flexibility and mobility to help simplify operations and improve productivity. This Voice over IP (VoIP) solution offers a powerful, dedicated, feature-rich voice and data connection without the costs or challenges of having to install and maintain an on-site, customer-owned phone system.
FairPoint provisions a virtual IP PBX on its softswitch platform and delivers functionality over its Ethernet transport service — the same connection that provides the customer’s Internet access, as well as any other point-to-point or point-to-multipoint Ethernet data transport services. Hosted PBX is delivered on FairPoint’s Ethernet network so calls are transmitted over a high-quality, reliable, private network — not the open Internet.
