Qwest Communications International announced a continued expansion of its VoIP service portfolio with IP Centrex Prime, an IP-enabled interface that helps enterprise business customers with multiple locations and mobile workforces migrate from traditional PBX connections to VoIP.
By using IP Centrex Prime, enterprise customers using Centrex or PBX networks can migrate to an IP-converged voice and data network.
Centrex Prime retains traditional Centrex features, such as call forwarding, call waiting, and three-way calling to more sophisticated telephony applications used to monitor a company's multiple telephone numbers.
"Qwest's enterprise customers doing business in multiple locations will find convenience and reliability in IP Centrex Prime," said Scott Simanson, vice-president of Qwest product management.
"Qwest is committed to enabling the seamless migration of our existing enterprise business customers to VoIP; and IP Centrex Prime is, for many customers, a first step in part of a larger VoIP strategy," he said.
Qwest launched its national VoIP solution for business customers earlier this year. Called Qwest OneFlex, the solution is another step in Qwest's strategic deployment of nationwide VoIP capabilities for both business and residential customers.
Qwest currently carries 1.8 billion minutes of VoIP traffic per month over its national IP network.
