Pac-West Telecomm Launches Telastic On-Demand Carrier Environment

Updated: January 05, 2011

OAKLAND, Calif., Sept. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Pac-West Telecomm, Inc., a leading provider of wholesale advanced telecommunications services, today announced that it has launched Telastic™, the first on-demand carrier service enablement environment.

Telastic provides a comprehensive set of core telecom components available as on-demand services – from border controller technology to application scalability to wholesale VoIP and PBX white-label offerings – that enable carriers and service providers to evolve from the mindset of using expensive, cumbersome and inefficient legacy telecom infrastructure into a service-based approach that is easy to adopt, scalable and cost-effective. Operators leveraging Telastic gain instant interconnects with the Telastic community of application service providers, carriers, and federations.

"Telastic fundamentally changes the economics for the way carriers and service providers do business," said Vic Bozzo, President of the Telastic Business Unit at Pac-West. "By offering on a service basis the key ingredients an operator needs to turn up communications offerings, Telastic frees them from capital expenditure burdens, and gets them to market earning revenue like never before."

Telastic consists of three primary elements:

  • Telastic Carrier Infrastructure: Provides a full suite of operator tools for managing IP-based communications traffic. Leveraging Pac-West's new hosted Session Border Control technology, this service includes least-cost routing capability, rating, billing, vendor management, revenue protection, numbers management, CDR generation, fraud control, and a unique embedded VoIP peering capability for instant interconnection.
  • Telastic Application Capacity: Provides instant capacity for your communications applications, leveraging Telastic's cutting-edge virtualization service technology and optimized for real-time communications up and down the stack. Includes capability to easily choose phone numbers, provision them and route them to applications automatically.
  • Telastic Turnkey Applications: Leveraging Telastic's optimized communications environment, this provides a scalable and comprehensive packaged VoIP feature platform for white-label hosted IP/PBX, residential VoIP offerings and other telephony applications.

Carriers and service providers historically have struggled with a vicious cycle of capital availability and cash flow as their service grows while trying to maintain efficient and timely delivery of services to their customer base, all while striving to manage service quality to meet customer expectations and compete with new entrants in the sea-change that VoIP represents. Telastic provides an alternative to the pain and expense of trying to stitch together disparate hardware, software, and interconnects – instead providing key infrastructure, connectivity, and service elements as your business needs them.

"Pac-West has learned a lot in its thirty years as a carrier's carrier," said Robert H. ("Hal") Turner, CEO of Pac-West. "Telastic translates that know-how into a set of services available on-demand that take away a lot of the painful aspects of operating a telecom business and let operators focus on their core service values, and gives them the agility to respond to market demands quickly. Telastic truly enables communications at the speed of need."
