TelCentris Announces Nationwide CLEC Rollout with Regulatory Approval in Five States
As a Competitive Local Exchange Carrier (CLEC), TelCentris will gain significant competitive advantages in terms of cost, quality and reliability
SAN DIEGO – Nov. 12, 2009 – TelCentris Inc., a new type of telephony company and the creator of VoxOx, today announced that it is launching a nationwide CLEC (competitive local exchange carrier) and already has regulatory approval in five states.
A CLEC is a phone company that has regulatory approval from the state PUC (Public Utilities Commission) where it operates that enables it to compete against incumbent local exchange carriers (ILECs), such as AT&T. As a facilities-based CLEC, TelCentris is rolling out a nationwide infrastructure that enables it to provide services such as telephone numbers, local and long distance calling, and data access over its own network. This network, based largely on TelCentris own Unified Communications Service Delivery Platform (SDP) infrastructure, bypasses some of the costs and complexities of leasing similar services from other CLECs or ILECs. The result is TelCentris ability to deliver more cost effective, innovative and higher quality services that meet the needs of todays businesses and consumers.
"We've been working on our CLEC rollout for two years now and we are excited by our progress," said Bryan Hertz, CEO of TelCentris. "This will enable us to pass on significant savings to our many customers, as well as provide unparalleled levels of quality, service and reliability."
TelCentris now has regulatory approval in California, Texas, Florida, New York and, most recently, Illinois, with other states on the way. The company has formed a subsidiary, TelCentris Communications, LLC, to roll out its CLEC operations.
"TelCentris is making a strategically strong move and positioning itself for strong future growth," said Fred Goldstein, an author and principal of Ionary Consulting, a prestigious telecom consulting firm. "It is building a flexible platform that puts it ahead of most other VoIP providers and many older CLECs."
