WEST LONG BRANCH, N.J. -- Tachion Networks, innovators of the Collapsed Central Office, today announced a contract with ACD.net, Michigan's number-one independent Internet access provider, to provide up to two-dozen fully configured FUSION 5000Ô Broadband Services Switches over the next two years. ACD.net recently gained CLEC status and will now begin offering bundled voice and data services to business and residential users using the Tachion platform.

"With the changing pressures in the service provider space we found that we needed to move from a data only ISP business model to one that incorporated voice offerings using voice over DSL, voice over ATM and traditional TDM voice services in order to offer our customers a more complete range of communications services," said Kevin Schoen, president of ACD.net. "Tachion's Collapsed Central Office was the prefect choice for us as it not only improves our existing data infrastructure but also provides turnkey voice functionality which will enable us to roll out bundled voice and data services within weeks instead of the months a more traditional legacy network infrastructure, based on a class five switch, would have taken. In addition, this solution gives us a competitive advantage over ILECs and other ISPs by providing customers with a less expensive, feature rich communications solution"
