TAMPA, Fla. — Telovations Inc., a leading provider of hosted voice services to business customers, today announced it has expanded the Telovations Real-Time Network(SM) throughout the U.S. with the launch of a nationwide flat-rate Managed MPLS Network. The Managed MPLS Network will provide the necessary backbone for Telovations to expand its outsourced communications solutions to business customers that also require a wide area network for connectivity between branch locations.

Telovations“Telovations’ Managed MPLS Network is helping our customers significantly reduce communications expenses and allows them the flexibility to expand and contract their voice and data services on demand,” said Rick Schonbrun, president and CEO of the Tampa-based firm. “Customers are increasingly looking at outsourcing as a cost-effective way to leverage new technology without the upfront capital cost of premise-based systems.”

Four Rivers Peterbilt of Savannah, Ga., a leading dealer of Peterbilt Trucks, with four locations in the Southeast, recently upgraded its frame relay network to the Telovations Managed MPLS Network and saved 32 percent annually, while substantially increasing the quality of service for both voice and data between locations. “During these challenging economic times we are always looking for new ways to save money and increase our service to customers,” said Jim Elliott, CEO of Four Rivers Peterbilt. “Outsourcing the management of our network routers and the connectivity between our sites provides Four Rivers with increased operational efficiency, which helps make us more competitive.”

“Telovations IP voice services are part of the large IP MPLS VPN market, which hit $14.9 billion worldwide in 2008,” stated Michael Howard, principal analyst at Infonetics Research, “and we expect continued healthy growth in reaching $19.9 billion in 2011.”

With its Managed MPLS Network, Telovations can provide multi-location businesses with cost-saving services, including Managed SIP Trunking, Hosted PBX, Unified Communications and Mobility solutions. These innovative services are delivered in an outsourced, variable-cost business model, which helps to increase efficiencies and decrease the demand on internal IT resources.
