PortaSwitch Helps Lightspeed Communications Profit From Surging Bahrain Economy

"One of the greatest advantages of PortaSwitch is its simplicity," noted Mr. Abdulrahman Ghazal, Lightspeed Communications Technical Manager. "It's easy to configure, which saves us time and effort. Moreover, PortaOne upgrades PortaSwitch frequently, which allows us to stay at the top in terms of technology and system capabilities."

As Lightspeed Communications has increased its base of SMB and large corporate accounts, PortaSwitch has allowed the telecom to host and maintain a number of value-added services. "PortaSwitch supports a wide array of SIP Centrex services. Since installing PortaSwitch we've increased our business significantly by adding new customers who, for example, are looking for a VoIP hosted model with fax-over-IP capability."

Other advantages PortaSwitch provides, Mr. Ghazal said, include postpaid/prepaid support, features like call waiting and voicemail, and the ability to support interconnection with new carriers. He also pointed to the need among Lightspeed customers to fax using their own equipment—a capability PortaSwitch supports.

Since the beginning, Lightspeed Communications has also subscribed to PortaOne's PortaCare 24/7 technical support program. In addition to technical assistance, the program gives the telecom remote monitoring and basic maintenance of covered servers.

"Lightspeed provides a comprehensive platform and first-class customer care professionals, ready to assist with every aspect of our services," stated Mr. Groleau. "Our commitment to our customers, combined with our unbundled lineup of services and our all-in-one voice/Internet offering, is very attractive to a wide range of Bahraini market segments. PortaSwitch and PortaCare help us meet all these different customer requirements."
