CINCINNATI -- PowerNet Global Communications (PNG), an emerging national wholesale and retail carrier, announced today the industry's first ATM-Grade SLAs for IP services. With its recent deployment of Axiowave Networks' XCR128(TM) service convergence router across the IP network of its wholly owned Aleron Broadband Services subsidiary, the carrier is delivering a range of services not previously available in the industry. New services include Toll-Quality VoIP, ATM-Grade IP-VPNs, and ATM-Grade transit.

With more than 500,000 subscribers and service in 49 states, PNG is a leading integrated communications provider that offers a host of services to both residential and business customers, including voice, internet access, transit, and other data services. Its Aleron Broadband Services subsidiary operates one of the industry's most advanced IP networks.

"PNG/Aleron is the first and only service provider to offer guaranteed ATM-Grade SLAs for IP-VPNs and Toll-Quality VoIP, which will enable customers to migrate from premium legacy services to IP with its associated benefits," said PowerNet Global President/CEO Bernie Stevens. "Our Toll-Quality VoIP service benefits not only our business customers, but also our wholesale customers who need to interconnect disparate VoIP islands and extend their reach on a global basis. At the same time, our ATM-Grade transit service lets customers replace their rigid, expensive leased-line circuits with a more flexible, usage-based IP service that offers performance equivalent to that of leased-line."
