JERICHO, N.Y. -- Optimum Lightpath, a market leader in Ethernet-based communication solutions for New York metropolitan area businesses, today introduced the first HD-Voice service for mid-sized and large businesses, available June 2009. With its advanced Hosted Voice service, next-generation Cisco IP phones and state-of-the-art Ethernet-based fiber optic network, Optimum Lightpath enables smart businesses to enjoy the best quality voice calls to and from anyone within its business facilities.

Since HD Voice uses less bandwidth than standard G711 voice, it enables more bandwidth and improves IP transit. As a result, HD Voice provides greater efficiencies across all voice, data, Internet and video services running across Optimum Lightpath’s Ethernet-based fiber optic network.

HD Voice is available to New York metropolitan area businesses as part of Optimum Lightpath’s Hosted Voice service, a complete customer-hosted voice and Internet solution delivered over a single connection. The service, which uses Cisco IP phones 7945 and 7965, delivers true HD voice quality.

“HD Voice demonstrates our commitment to innovation and continuous improvement of our services for smart businesses,” said John Macario, Senior Vice President of Product Strategy and Management. “Understanding how smart technologies work together helps ensure the highest quality of service, a central focus of Optimum Lightpath and key enabler of the Smart Community of businesses.”
