Multi-Link Encouraged by FCC Decision

Preserves PSTN Solution for VoIP E911 Access

Nicholasville, KY – May 19th, 2005 –  Multi-Link President Ron Sladon praised today’s FCC ruling to provide E911 service to VoIP consumers.

“Today’s ruling was a win for both consumers and providers of VoIP services,” said Sladon.  Multi-Link recently filed an ex parte communication and met with the four FCC commissioners’ legal advisors and Commission staff members.

During the meetings, Multi-Link discussed its TeleVoIP StickTM, which seamlessly integrates VoIP service with the existing Public Switched Telephone Network (“PSTN”).  Multi-Link focused on the TeleVoIP Stick’s ability to automatically route all 911 calls through the PSTN line, ensuring that users of any underlying VoIP service would be able to obtain emergency service.   

“I applaud Chairman Martin’s balanced ruling today to the E911 crisis facing VoIP consumers and the industry,” stated Sladon, noting that nothing in the FCC ruling precludes the use of an existing public switched telephone network (PSTN) for E911 access by VoIP providers.  “The PSTN connection is a tried and true method of delivering E911 calls and should be made available to all VoIP consumers,” he added.

The TeleVoIP Stick was unveiled recently at the CES Innovations Plus show on January 6th, 2005.  The Stick was designed to enable the transparent blending of the everyday phone experience with an Internet voice application.

The TeleVoIP Stick is currently available to the VoIP industry for testing.
