Product Spotlight: Local Connect

Reduce Costs and Expand into New Markets — Quickly and Easily

When you remove the need to deploy costly and time-consuming communications infrastructure, you enable carriers to grow their customer base without having to build and operate local networks. Local Connect is an innovative network solution designed to leverage Inteliquent's carrier-grade network for purposes of eliminating connections to the public telephone network.

This relieves the burden of fixed network expenses and allows for risk-free expansion into new markets. The typical array of connections required to receive calls from LECs, wireless and long distance providers is replaced with a simple interconnect to Inteliquent.

Connectivity with Inteliquent may be SIP or TDM, which significantly reduces the classic burden of network infrastructure born by most carriers. The availability of a SIP option provides an opportunity to eliminate TDM interconnections completely.

Best of all, Inteliquent's Local Connect customers retain all the benefit of being a carrier. Their telephone numbers continue to reflect their company ownership and they retain all of their existing carrier rights.

Local Connect is geared for service providers wanting to:

  • Enter new markets quickly and inexpensively
  • Eliminate costly TDM circuit infrastructure
  • Expand reach without building a network
  • Convert to an all-IP infrastructure
  • Gain more control of processes and assets
  • Refocus resources towards customers and away from infrastructure

Until recently this service was limited to Verizon RBOC markets, but now Inteliquent is happy to announce expansion into AT&T RBOC markets with CenturyLink markets on the horizon.
