June 12, 2012 — RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Overture, the preferred Carrier Ethernet edge and aggregation partner for service providers and network operators worldwide and Spirit Communications, a leader in SC business telecommunications services, today announced an initiative that is expanding the CLEC’s Ethernet service footprint in North and South Carolina.
Spirit’s Business Elite Ethernet service delivers fast speeds to businesses from 3 Mbps up to 10 Mbps, with reliability and network capability for integrating voice, data and Internet. The network solution is anchored by Overture Networks’ leading-edge Carrier Ethernet platforms for ease of use, quality and greater bandwidth reliability. Spirit has recently launched an expansion campaign for its Ethernet service and is experiencing notable growth throughout the Carolinas.
“Since launching Business Elite this past year, we have seen a increase in the number of customers we’re signing and we’re very much encouraged by this growth,” said Greg Guerra, Spirit executive vice president of Strategy, Product Management and Business Development. “Clearly, there are some logistical advantages to be working with a local company like Overture, but more importantly, our success is based on a shared passion for delivering unmatched service and support to our customers as we work together to build out Spirit’s network.”
“Spirit’s Business Elite Ethernet Service is a great example of a winning service that meets the needs of small and medium sized businesses in the region,” said Vijay Raman, Overture vice president of Product Management and Marketing. “Our relationship with Spirit typifies how Overture works to help our customers compete. For us, that means collaboration in all areas, including working to create products that are easily deployed and managed, thereby enabling our customers like Spirit to extend services and open new markets reliably and cost-effectively. What’s especially rewarding in this case is working with another group of people who are also building a dynamic and growing company here in the Carolinas.”
