TeleCentrisTelCentris, the San Diego-based developer of VoxOx, a proprietary Unified Communications System,  announced the launching of an all-digital, nationwide competitive local exchange carrier (CLEC).  TelCentris has received approval from local regulators in five states, which gives it the right to compete with ILECs in California, Florida, Illinois and Texas in long-distance voice telephony and data access.  Applications in other states are under review.

The company is rolling out a nationwide network infrastructure based on its Unified Communications Service Delivery Platform, which they claim “bypasses some of the costs and complexities of leasing similar services from other CLECs or ILECs.”

“We’ve been working on our CLEC rollout for two years now and we are excited by our progress,” said Bryan Hertz, CEO of TelCentris, in a news release. “This will enable us to pass on significant savings to our many customers, as well as provide unparalleled levels of quality, service and reliability.”
