MegaPath Receives Internet Telephony Magazine's Product of the Year Award for the Second Consecutive Year
Duet Voice and Data Service Recognized for Outstanding Innovation
COSTA MESA, CA, January 26, 2009 – MegaPath Inc., the leading provider of managed IP data, voice, and security services in North America, today announced that its Duet™ voice and data service has received the 2008 Product of the Year award from Technology Marketing Corporation’s (TMC) INTERNET TELEPHONY magazine. Duet provides small-to-medium sized businesses with productivity features found in enterprise voice and data solutions without the staffing requirements or network and telephony equipment investments needed to deploy their own VoIP infrastructure.
“This recognition from INTERNET TELEPHONY magazine highlights the increased value that Duet offers to MegaPath’s customers, enabling them to implement the latest VoIP features without costly overhead or up front costs,” said Beth Tyebjee, Senior Vice President of Marketing at MegaPath. “With Duet, our customers can leverage their existing investments and reduce phone costs, while gaining even greater functionality, which is extremely valuable, especially in the current economy.”
The Duet service leverages MegaPath’s all-optical MPLS nationwide network to deliver a low-cost high-speed Internet and full-featured voice service bundle that is ideal for small-to-medium sized businesses. It provides customers with up to 30 simultaneous calls and up to 3 Mbps of Internet access, all over bonded T1 circuits. The service is delivered over a private circuit, so that voice traffic never touches the public Internet. The voice traffic is always prioritized over data traffic, providing customers with the call quality their business requires.
“INTERNET TELEPHONY is pleased to grant a 2008 Product of the Year Award to MegaPath for their Duet service. MegaPath has proven they are committed to quality and excellence while addressing real needs in the marketplace,” said Rich Tehrani, TMC President and Editor-in-Chief of INTERNET TELEPHONY magazine. “We’re proud to honor their accomplishments in the advancement of IP communications and look forward to more innovative solutions from them in the future.”
