Here’s what working with Inteliquent means to you.

Inteliquent provides an alternative to building and maintaining TDM networks to the numerous carriers needed to route your customer’s long distance traffic. We have built a robust access network between the ILECs and IXCs so you make a single connection to us and we can handle delivering calls to the appropriate IXC for termination or collect traffic from the IXCs to deliver back to your customers. A single connection, nationwide access.

It just makes sense.

"I wanted to say how much we appreciated your exceptional support with getting these 2 augments up so quickly! I know this required a lot of effort for several teams within Inteliquent. In addition, your willingness to meet and help come up with & quickly implement a more graceful routing method across our switches proved tremendously helpful! We were able to get through yesterday without triggering the outage we experienced on Monday due to your partnership and support!"

Meet your new network.

We operate the most versatile and robust network: our own. We don’t have to integrate a variety of different providers to offer service. Our network was built from the ground up by experts, not cobbled together through random acquisitions. This means that the outages and issues standard to other providers rarely ever happen with Inteliquent.
