IPTrunking Basic: Now You Can Make Your Move—And Do It On Your Own Schedule.

If you run a business, particularly a small or medium-sized business (SMB), you are probably weighing how you can economically and easily migrate to the benefits of a VoIP solution while not immediately abandoning the investment you have made in your existing PBX/Key system and handsets.


IPTrunking Basic from Accera Group is the solution that allows you to make that move by giving you the ability to:
   •   Purchase a specific number of lines to closely match your communication costs with your actual business needs
   •   Consolidate data and voice services to lower expensive phone bills due to long distance calls and their associated taxes
   •   Leverage your existing Internet connection for both data and voice while providing the ability to add enhanced calling features not already provided by the existing
       PBX or Key Set
   •   Streamline your communications platform and enjoy immediate and significant economic advantages while smoothly transitioning to a Hosted VoIP service
   •   Provide a new generation network to enhance your mobility via the Accera Group network

How IPTrunking Smoothes the Transition.

Making your move to VoIP is not as challenging a proposition as you might think. Look at a typical “before” scenario. As depicted in the first illustration below, voice and data reside on separate networks within the infrastructure, with separate cost centers and, usually, separate support staffs as well.


However, with IPTrunking implemented at your PBX site, all of that changes by leveraging your data connection to simultaneously serve both your data and voice needs. As shown in the second illustration below, a certified Integrated Access Device (IAD), which is simply installed at your premises, connects to our proprietary network via our Priority Access T1 service or via a broadband connection. This configuration provides access to DIDs nationwide—and can also lower your long distance bills and other related fees and taxes.



Business Continuity.

In the event of a natural disaster or calamitous event, our Business Continuity solutions enable enterprises to automatically re-route calls and maintain telephone service to any location and any device, including landline phones, mobile devices and PC-based softphones. This disaster-recovery solution includes simultaneous and/or sequential ringing to multiple locations, support for telecommuting, unified voice messaging and single mailbox across multiple technologies.


IPTrunking Basic and A La Carte Services.

IPTrunking Basic services can be ordered with powerful a la carte and Class 5 user feature overlays such as Call Forwarding, Simultaneous Ring and Sequential Ring. These advanced features can be used to supplement those features not already provided by an existing PBX or Key Set.


Essentially, Basic IP Trunks can be ordered (minimum of 2, initial order) and only the number of a la carte features you require are added. The number of a la carte features that can be purchased is independent of the number of IPTrunks purchased. There is no minimum number of a la carte features required. A la carte features are priced separately from the IPTrunking Basic services.


The a la carte services* that can be added are: Auto Attendant (1 DID included), Class 5 Feature Package, Conference Bridge, Instant Group (DIDs required), Hunt Group (DIDs required), IPCallRecord (DIDs required), Voicemail (DIDs required), and IPFAXSolution (1 DID included).


IPTrunking Usage Plans.
Two usage plans are available with each IPTrunking option:

Plan A includes 1000 minutes outbound local and domestic long distance calling and unlimited inbound minutes

Plan B includes unlimited outbound local and domestic long distance calling and unlimited inbound minutes

The Bottom Line On IPTrunking Basic.
It works. It facilitates the changes you need to make your business more profitable and competitive. It allows you to make your move right now, and establish a platform that will serve your business far into the future. It does all of this by:

   •   leveraging your existing data connection to connect your PBX to our proprietary network, enabling more economical telecommunication services
   •   facilitating a “cap-and-grow” strategy while transitioning to VoIP, as well as shortening and smoothing your move to a fully-hosted VoIP solution
   •   allowing you to take advantage of a more favorable tax structure of “Enhanced Services Providers,” which excludes interstate charges regulated by the FCC,
       permitting you to purchase as few as 2 lines

*No a la carte services are included or required. A la carte services are priced separately.

The Bottom Line on These Hosted IPPBX Solutions.

The movement from old to new technology isn’t always one that must take place in a single, often resource-prohibitive, step. A movement can be a transition as much as it can be a replacement. Easily, conveniently and seamlessly connect satellite offices together without expensive capital or replacing existing equipment, and consolidate data and voice bills to save money by eliminating useless phone features and long distance per-minute charges, with IPPBX solutions from Accera Group.
