Municipal Broadband Leader NextLight™ Upgrades VoIP With Alianza Cloud Voice Platform
Inc., the cloud voice platform company, announced today that NextLightTM,
the community-owned fiber-optic network ISP from Longmont Power &
Communications, has selected Alianza (News - Alert) for its next-generation VoIP
solution. With Alianza's turnkey software-as-a-service solution,
NextLight is improving operations and its customers' experience.
The City of Longmont launched NextLight as a municipal internet service
in 2014. The network has since transformed Longmont into Colorado's
first Gig City, making symmetrical gigabit connections available
citywide, and becoming the high-speed provider of choice for a majority
of the city's residents. In June, PC Magazine declared NextLight the
fastest ISP in the nation. The National Civic League also cited
NextLight as a factor when it named Longmont an All-America City in 2018.
NextLight is the latest ISP to migrate from a hosted softswitch solution
to a modern cloud solution. Alianza's APIs, proven migration process,
and experienced team made for an easy upgrade. Alianza's solution
supports NextLight's existing phone services and provides a platform for
growth with new business cloud communication services. NextLight has
integrated the Cloud Voice Platform with GLDS' BroadHub customer
management, billing and provisioning systems and Calix (News - Alert) GigaCenters to
eliminate swivel chair processes, automate customer life-cycle
management and streamline operations.
"We are constantly innovating to deliver a better customer experience,"
commented NextLight's Anne Lutz, Director of Customer Service. "Alianza
fits that mode and gives us a modern, agile, and easier to manage
solution so we can deliver the best phone service portfolio for our
customers, including epanded features."
"NextLight is delivering a top-notch broadband portfolio for residents
and businesses of Longmont," commented Kevin Dundon, Alianza's Executive
Vice President of Sales and Marketing. "Our partnership with Longmont
provides the ISP with feature-rich and future-proof cloud communications
services and creates a powerful service combination."

total cost of ownership and a clear business case for VoIP with a
zero-CAPEX, success-based SaaS (News - Alert) model. This new way to deliver voice
service untangles service providers from the restraints of old-school
voice networks and accelerates innovation and growth. Learn more about
