NextLight upgrades VoIP with Alianza Cloud voice platform

Alianza Inc., the cloud voice platform company, has announced that NextLightTM, the community-owned fiber-optic network ISP from Longmont Power & Communications, has selected Alianza for its next-generation VoIP solution, the company said.

The City of Longmont launched NextLight as a municipal Internet service in 2014. The network has since transformed Longmont into Colorado´s first Gig City, making symmetrical gigabit connections available citywide, and becoming the high-speed provider of choice for a majority of the city´s residents.

NextLight is the latest ISP to migrate from a hosted softswitch solution to a modern cloud solution. Alianza´s APIs, proven migration process, and experienced team made for an easy upgrade.

Alianza´s solution supports NextLight´s existing phone services and provides a platform for growth with new business cloud communication services. NextLight has integrated the Cloud Voice Platform with GLDS´ BroadHub customer management, billing and provisioning systems and Calix GigaCenters to eliminate swivel chair processes, automate customer life-cycle management and streamline operations.

Alianza radically transforms communications delivery so that service providers thrive with strong margins, better service and elegant management. Alianza´s Cloud Voice Platform is a web-scale, turnkey virtualized software solution that enables cable, mobile, telco and other broadband providers to rapidly customize, launch and profit from VoIP and UC services.
