Sylantro Systems Corporation has announced that VoEx, Inc., a VoIP services and enhanced managed services provider based in Grand Rapids, Michigan, and STS Telecom a South Florida-based telecommunications service provider have integrated Sylantro's applications feature server and hosted communications applications as part of their comprehensive new service strategies to deliver richer, differentiated alternatives to Unbundled Network Element Platform (UNE-P) service offerings. UNE-P has been the foundation for many competitive providers' offerings over much of the past decade; however, recent rulings have brought major changes to the UNE-P program.
Today’s announced deployments represent Sylantro's growing base of U.S. customers that are shedding the restrictions of UNE-P by offering highly scalable Voice over IP (VoIP) services for their consumer and business customers.
STS Telecom, a forward-looking service provider, has deployed Sylantro servers and applications as part of the new EVOLUTION enterprise VoIP offering that will be initially deployed in 30 major U.S. markets. STS plans to migrate more than 10,000 existing business and residential customers to the Sylantro platform as part of an end-to-end solution that includes advanced calling features, local/long distance, bandwidth, equipment and installation.
VoEx has deployed Sylantro's applications feature server as the basis for its IP Centrex and IP Mobility services. VoEx serves large, communications-intensive enterprise customers and delivers value-added VoIP applications for CLECs and data backbone service providers throughout the world.

The series makes its debut in the February issue with an article entitled Is There Life After UNE-P? and will continue through June. To subscribe to the magazine, please visit our sign-up page.
Also, make plans to join us in Miami, from February 22-25 for Internet Telephony Conference & EXPO, where we are proud to announce the UNE-P to VoIP Summit – a day-long conference track dedicated to educating CLECs and other service providers on the key issues affecting their very survival.
