Nationwide IP trunking launched in Canada

The first Internet Protocol trunking service in Canada has been launched, opening the door to easier Internet access for business customers.

MTS Allstream announced at the Canadian Telecom Summit this week that its IP trunking will enable clients to use a single connection to the public telephone network for their PBX and IP networking.

"IP Trunking sets the new standard in voice and data convergence," said MTS' John MacDonald. "It allows customers to realize the full potential of their IP infrastructure and is a significant enhancement to our Converged IP Solutions portfolio."

MTS said its trunking service was delivered through its national network, which uses Cisco's CRS-1 Carrier Routing System platform.
