Digital telephone & PBX services
Since the summer of 2010, OpenAccess has rolled out digital telephone service for the OpenAccess office, affiliated companies, and several customers. Overall, service has been better than we expected and we have now opened up our digital telephone service to all existing customers.
Please note the Infrastructure Requirements below and the FAQ section. If you are interested in finding out more, please give us a call at 360-647-0785.
In order to ensure quality of service (both in terms of reliability and also voice quality) our digital telephone services are available only for customers who have their main office connected to us either directly via fiber or via one of our fiber based MetroEthernet products.
If you have employees who telecommute (i.e. work from home or small branch offices), no problem! Generally, quality should not be an issue as long as they have a fast/low-latency internet connection. However we cannot guarantee call quality and it is difficult for us to troubleshoot any issues should any arrive in these kinds of situations.
See below for more information on phone equipment. If you have your own PBX system or VOIP solution already, and you are interested in migrating to our services, please let us know the specifics of your equipment (brand/model of the base station, handsets, etc., and how many handsets you have) or system.
