Alteva Unifies Communications of American and Canadian Offices

PHILADELPHIA, PA - February 16, 2010 - Alteva, North America's largest enterprise hosted VoIP provider, today announced the expansion of its services to include porting capabilities in Canada. Canadian companies wanting to have an appearance in the US will now be able to retain a local presence using a local number and more importantly, create a standardization and consolidation of its billing across all of its offices. In addition, companies will maintain the benefits of using a hosted VoIP solution including lower up front costs, flexibility and scalability, redundancy with live failover and automatic upgrades.

"This has never been done on an enterprise level," said Mark Marquez, CIO at Alteva. "The demand for international enterprise deployments is growing and we are ready to meet the needs of our multi location customers and expand the global reach of our VoIP and Unified Communications (UC) services worldwide. Alteva will offer porting capabilities to over 70 countries by the end of 2010."

International porting capabilities offer the ability for phone service providers to seamlessly connect their customers with other locations abroad without the common constraints of cost normally associated with this type of connection. Major benefits of international porting include:

• Retaining local presence - no need for POTS lines or TDM service
• Lower calling rates
• Intra -country dialing and number portability - no more country codes
• Free extension dialing to/from Canadian offices
• Consolidation of billing across all offices
• Seamless connectivity

"Standardization is a big driver in offering this type of capability, especially with companies that have thousands of employees and offices worldwide," said Rob Molinaro, Vice President of Chorus Communications, an Alteva Master Agent. "Alteva worked with us to develop an almost virtual phone system that fits our customers' needs and expands their global reach. Now, Canadian customers can have a cost -effective way to retain their existing numbers, but also expand their hosted VoIP and UC services on a localized level."
