LightEdge Solutions launches Business-Grade Voice over DSL Service


New service removes the cost barrier for small businesses to adopt integrated voice and high-speed data services

DES MOINES, Iowa, April 30, 2008 — LightEdge Solutions, a leading provider of managed Voice, Data and IT business services, today announced the availability of VoIP telephony service using managed Digital Subscriber Line (DSL) access. Through this managed connection, voice and data are carried over a QoS-enabled private IP network that is monitored and controlled end-to-end by LightEdge Solutions’ network operations staff. Previously, only businesses that could afford T1 lines could obtain that type of service and superior voice quality. The entire LightEdge product portfolio is now deliverable over managed DSL, which includes managed backup, Hosted Exchange and Wan IP. This achievement marks a major milestone for the company and for the industry as a whole as more emphasis is being placed on providing cost-effective managed services for small and medium-sized businesses.

The managed solution reduces the cost of traditional phone service by integrating voice and data services into a single DSL connection and providing multiple call functionality without dedicated analog phone lines. Depending upon the customer premise equipment selected, the LightEdge VoDSL solution can simultaneously support up to seventeen voice calls and transport data over each DSL line. The service is ideal for companies with up to forty employees at single location, or multiple locations when used with the LightEdge WAN IP product.

“The launch of this product is really pivotal for our business right now. We’ve been searching for ways to take our managed Voice-over-IP services and make it available for the masses,” said Jim Masterson, chairman and CEO of LightEdge Solutions. “By managing the DSL loop from end to end we can give small and medium-sized businesses access to a level of service and scalability that is just not available through another VoIP provider.”

LightEdge will offer the VoDSL services in several speeds with a maximum bandwidth of 7 Mbps. Customer location will determine eligibility and speeds available for the service. VoDSL will initially be offered in Minneapolis, Des Moines and Omaha, with additional markets available in the near future.
