BANGOR, Me. -- Mid-Maine Communications (MMC), a true facilities-based Maine telecommunications company, today introduced ClearStream quality of service (QOS) support for critical, high bandwidth, real-time network applications. ClearStream provides MMC customers with the ability to prioritize bandwidth allocation across their Wide Area Networks (WAN) enhancing the quality of VOIP applications, video conferencing and maintaining data communications integrity. Combined with SitelinkIP, Mid-Maine’s IP based WAN solution, customers across Maine now have access to the next generation of IP data and voice networking.

Thousands of businesses and multi-location organizations across Maine depend on Mid-Maine’s proprietary high-speed fiber optic network for all of their telecommunications needs. ClearStream enables SitelinkIP customers to extend internal network policies across the WAN and guarantee bandwidth needs to meet high priority voice, video and enterprise applications.

“As the demand for high-speed, uninterrupted data and voice communications continues to increase, products such as ClearStream and SitelinkIP provide Maine businesses with a leading edge solution from a trusted, local provider,” said Nick Winchester, CEO of Mid-Maine Communications. “We’re excited to bring these enhanced network services to market.”

Voice over IP (VOIP) communication networks continue to gain in popularity with businesses across the Maine because of the ability to handle converged voice and data traffic, advanced calling features and the potential to lower telecom operating costs over time. Infonetics Research, an international market research and consulting firm specializing in data networking and telecom, recently projected that half of small and two-thirds of large organizations in North America will be using VOIP products and services by 2010.

“Mid-Maine is taking a big step forward by introducing quality of service (QOS) into their network,” said Tim Hiltz, Vice President of Marketing for CTI Communication Technologies, a business communications networking company and Maine’s only Nortel Premium Partner. “ClearStream fills a communications network need that has existed in Maine for a few years.”
