“We are honored to have TMC recognize One Source Networks’ VoIP solutions with the 2011 Internet Telephony (News - Alert) Excellence Award,” said Ernest Cunningham, president and CEO of One Source Networks, in a statement. “Our platform is entirely SIP based and supports HD Voice, which in turn increases call quality up to five times over traditional PSTN lines.

In other industry news, wholesale VoIP company Alcazar Networks is spreading the word about its portfolio of services including wholesale origination, wholesale termination, local termination, dialer termination and toll free termination; but there is an additional service that the company wants to spread the word about – its CNAM services.
Alcazar Networks, which was founded in 2003, provides a wide range of services and targets companies looking for wholesale origination, wholesale termination, T38 fax compatibility, nationwide e911 (News - Alert), CNAM publishing and lookups, directory listings and API based configurations all from one company.
CNAM, which stands for caller name, is a premium feature in the United States that is often lumped together with other premium phone services such as call waiting and call forwarding. When a call is being received by a CNAM caller ID subscriber, both the caller name and telephone number are being displayed – a service the caller ID subscriber has to pay for. Typically, the caller name that is displayed does not come from the phone’s memory and is passed to the caller ID subscriber by the local phone company, according to Alcazar Networks officials. Whenever they receive a call for a caller ID subscriber, they look up the caller name in a central CNAM database so it can be displayed on the receiving party’s phone display.
