Enterprise: Voice Services

Local and long distance voice services continue to be the foundation of most business communication-from customer care and technical support to vendor management and sales. Reliable voice services are critical for ensuring that customers, employees, and suppliers can stay in touch.

Your business requires voice services that provide the flexibility and quality you deserve while still being affordable. This combination allows you to effectively serve your customers while planning for the future. Grande's core voice network is built on Nortel DMS 500 and soft switching network. As one of the first competitive local exchange carriers to establish our own network in Texas after the 1996 Telecom Deregulation Act, we have a proven track record serving the communication needs of residential, business, and carrier customers. Most importantly, we are committed to providing the best customer and technical service while providing innovative solutions for your telecom needs.

Traditional services
Keep it simple with a comprehensive suite of local and long distance voice services. Whether your business needs require a dedicated PRI or T-1 for local service with low flat-rate long distance or an integrated bundle of local, long distance and Internet, Grande has a service designed with your business in mind.

Voice over IP Services (VoIP)
Are you facing the convergence of voice and data in your communication network? VoIP can increase efficiencies, reduce costs, and simplify your network. The clear benefit of VoIP is the optimization of resources resulting from consolidating voice and data onto one network. To help your company realize these primary benefits and others, Grande has designed a VoIP service over a single Ethernet connection, allowing your enterprise to allocate bandwidth between voice and data connecting directly to your existing data router and PBX or Key Phone System. By integrating our VoIP network and optical backbone, you can be sure that your VoIP services will be reliable and secure.

Business Telephone Service
Flexible and efficient, Grande's Business Telephone Service products have the versatility to meet your telephony needs. Whether you have a small office with traditional telephone lines, a mid-sized office with lines feeding a key-phone system, or a large office with trunks into a PBX, we combine a wide selection of business phone features with the most effective method of delivery to offer you a competitive advantage.
