Blastro Networks Will Experience a Win-Win with Internal Cost Savings and an Improved Experience for End Users to Its Web Site Austin, TX, February 1, 2011 —
DoubleHorn, the premier small business communications provider in Texas, announced today that it was delivering a hosted PBX Solution, IPOne™ Complete, along with collocation and optical Internet access services, to Blastro Networks, the Internet’s leading HD-streaming music video network. DoubleHorn, in conjunction with AboveNet, is facilitating a 10 Gigabit Ethernet Internet connection for Blastro, which means Blastro will be able to deliver content to the end user over a robust, unimpeded connection. “One of our objectives was to find a Texas-based company that could address two of our biggest needs – improving our existing telecommunications network (IPOne™ Complete) and ensuring that our content could be delivered to our national and international end users without any bottlenecks,” said Fletcher Lee, COO of Blastro Networks. “In DoubleHorn, we found a company that could accomplish both of these tasks, while maintaining a superior level of customer service.” In addition to iPhone Complete™, DoubleHorn also offers a variety of products for Texas companies today, including IPOne™ Integrated – A managed bundle that is a great replacement for those costly phone lines or the PRI companies currently have in place, while providing Dedicated Broadband. IPOne™ Trunking – A managed solution that provides companies the flexibility of using their existing Key Telephone System or PBX phone system with the added enhancement of SIP trunking to replace the costly phone lines or PRI. OpenVoice™ Plus – A hosted service utilizing the customer’s existing broadband connection to deliver voice services and PBX features and functionality. OpenVoice™ Basic – A service that provides standards-based SIP for those companies that already have an existing VoIP enabled (or IP based) Key Telephone System or PBX phone system and broadband access. “With more than four years under our belt and hundreds of customers, we have had the luxury of learning about the needs and wants of Texas companies, like Blastro,” said Tab Schadt, CEO of DoubleHorn, “Pairing that information and our commitment to technological innovation, we now offer a selection of products and services that introduce compelling new features and cost savings to small and medium-sized companies.” In addition to the above products, DoubleHorn has also begun offering another service – enhanced connectivity to the Internet backbone, which Blastro was quick to take advantage of. This service was fueled by DoubleHorn’s recently formed partnership with AboveNet, a national provider of fiber optic connectivity solutions for businesses and carriers. “This partnership with AboveNet is less than three months old and we already have a customer in Blastro,” said Schadt. “We believe there are a number of companies that would consider such connectivity options if they knew how reasonably priced this offering can be.” About DoubleHorn Austin, Texas-based DoubleHorn specializes in Small Business Managed Communications services, such as Hosted VoIP, Dedicated Broadband access, data backup, unified messaging features, and other web services.
