Project Description

Rhode Island Telephone, Inc selects prov.net to host it’s new “CloudWorx” Hosted VoIP PBX

Providence, RI Location, Reliability and Reputation were Key Factors

Providence, R.I., December 15, 2015 Provdotnet, LLC a leading provider of data-center solutions, today announced that RI Telephone, Inc. of Warwick, RI has selected prov.net to provide data center co-location services from one of it’s Providence, RI based data centers.

George Shaheen, Rhode Island Telephone’s President, said, “We selected prov.net as a Tier 3 data center co-location service provider for several operational reasons. First and foremost prov.net is a local Rhode Island business and they have a stellar service reputation.” “We also needed to work with a carrier independent data center like prov.net that provided the flexibility for us to work with any telecommunication carriers we chose.” “By having our primary CloudWorx servers at Prov.net and failover servers at our headquarters in Warwick, we offer true redundancy.” “In fact, we are the only VoIP provider in the state that has facilities that are actually hosted in Rhode Island, which is a critical factor with VoIP technology. Most people do not realize VoIP is actually time and distance sensitive, so the further away the VoIP server is from your business, the higher the likelihood you will suffer from poor quality.”

Ron Sacks, Prov.net’s Managing Partner & CEO, said, we have been patiently courting Rhode Island Telephone for a long-time and we are very happy to have them join the ever growing community of prov.net customers.” He added, “Customers like Rhode Island Telephone will continue to drive our strategy to create viable edge data centers that are becoming increasing important and designed to be close to the markets they serve.
