Net Access, a provider of hybrid colocation and cloud hosting solutions, headquartered in Cedar Knolls, New Jersey, has joined forces with connectivity and telecom management provider, MASS Communications, to deliver a data center-based hosted voice platform.
The end-to-end solution combines private cloud and storage with last mile private networking and Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN) connectivity, allowing PBX vendors, MSPs and VARs to “easily and cost-effectively” implement a hosted voice platform.
This hosted voice solution leverages a VMWare-controlled cluster of high performance compute hosts, with dedicated SAN for storage, optimized for voice processing performance and quality. The entire solution is hosted and managed by Net Access in their next generation Parsippany II data center.
PBX vendors, MSP’s, and VAR’s can port their PBX software stack to this infrastructure, which is connected to the MASS Communication’s SIP Gateway providers for voice origination and termination services. MASS also coordinates all last mile local loop connectivity to the end-user locations for end-to-end private connectivity.
“Building a hosted voice platform from scratch is expensive and very time consuming,” said Darren Mass, CEO of MASS Communications. “Combining Net Access’ managed cloud platform with MASS Communications‘ last mile and voice services provides a fast track for vendors to deploy hosted voice offerings without the enormous cost and complexity that comes with engineering and managing a voice and data network.”
Founded in 1995, Net Access operates three enterprise level compliant data centers in New Jersey. The company maintains its own IP network between all its data centers and major carrier hotels.
“Customers are increasingly demanding cloud-based voice services because of the flexibility, mobility and scalability the cloud offers,” said Raul Martynek, CEO of Net Access. “We are excited to collaborate with MASS Communications on this unique platform that will provide traditional PBX vendors an easy-to-implement solution to address this demand and help them further differentiate their business.”
