(Gawkwire.com) – Carat Networks, a leading global IT hosting service provider, announced today it has partnered with ComCanada Communications Inc, to provide high-quality, high-availability Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) telephone services based in Canada.
With the partnership, which has been in development for nearly a year, ComCanada will rely on Carat Networks’ award-winning network infrastructure and dedicated onside technicians to power its VoIP services. VoIP technology requires top-tier bandwidth, instant failover protection in the event of outages, redundant infrastructure, and low-latency access to major IP transit backbones. Carat Networks helps ComCanada meet each of those critical requirements, making it an ideal hosting provider for VoIP applications.
“We are excited to partner with ComCanada to enable it to deliver the next-generation of VoIP services. For years, VoIP providers have struggled to meet the bandwidth and reliability requirements needed to assure quality. By leveraging our multi-million dollar infrastructure, ComCanada is able to meet the needs of its clients and build a future in Canada for Web-based telephony. This partnership a big win for both companies,” said Chris Niedojadlo, CEO of Carat Networks.
“When we founded ComCanada in 2007, we were hyper-focused on quality and customer service. Today, more than three years later, we’re now one of Canada’s leading VoIP players, and we’ve retained our core commitment to our customers. Our partnership with Carat Networks will enable us to continue our tradition of unparalleled quality and affordability for years to come, especially as VoIP continues to be the fastest growing sector in telephony,” said Rick Orford, president and CEO of ComCanada.
ComCanada’s VoIP services are compatible with SIP devices, including IP phones, softphones, and Asterisk PBXs. Pricing starts at just CAD $39.95 per month for unlimited calling plans, which offer a variety of key features, including unlimited local and long distance calling, Hosted PBX, call waiting, call forwarding and voicemail. Lite VoIP plans start at just CAD $10.00 per month, and include an Auto Attendant, Ring Groups, Queues, Music on Hold, and dozens of other essential features.
Carat Networks last month launched VPS.US, a wholly-owned subsidiary offering United States-based Virtual Private Servers powered by Cloud Hosting technology. All Virtual Private Servers hosted by the subsidiary will be physically located within the United States. Carat Networks also offers a wide variety of Linux and Windows Dedicated Servers.
