ECG Partners with TelCove to Develop VoIP Platform


VALDOSTA, GA -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/4/2006 -- TelCove is a leading supplier of business critical telecommunications that has continued to grow since 1991. Among the expansion of the company, TelCove felt as though it was necessary to move to the next level and incorporate VoIP into their program.

“ECG was selected by TelCove to do turnkey engineering, installation, integration and remote technical support of TelCove’s Voice over IP Platform” said Ted A. Huf, TelCove VP Engineering. “ECG delivered a fully integrated and tested VoIP system in Pittsburgh and Atlanta as well as a laboratory system using Broadworks feature servers, Lucent gateways and Acme Packet Session Border Controllers.”

ECG created a project plan, incorporated the project timeline, set the engineering requirements, and developed a call routing plan for the development. ECG integrated a VoIP network into their legacy TDM network, which allowed them to maintain their current peering arrangements.

ECG engineered a geographically distributed, redundant VoIP switching system serving 1147 originating localities. The platform, consisting of Broadsoft Broadworks and Lucent LCS Gateways, was deployed, tested, and moved into service for Beta customers in seven weeks.

“ECG’s depth and breadth of experience with both IP-based and traditional telephone networks enabled the rapid deployment and integration of the BroadWorks and Lucent LCS platforms on this time sensitive project.” – James Puckett, President, ECG, Inc.

“Throughout the project, ECG went above and beyond the scope of work to ensure tasks occurred on schedule which resulted in a smooth and successful implementation.” –Ted A. Huf
