Alteva’s Hosted VoIP Honored for Delivering Exceptional IP Communications Solutions PHILADELPHIA, PA – November 29, 2010 – Alteva, a Unified Communications (UC) solution provider headquartered in Philadelphia, today announced that Technology Marketing Corporation (TMC) has named Alteva’s Hosted VoIP as a recipient of the 2010 INTERNET TELEPHONY Excellence Award presented by INTERNET TELEPHONY magazine. The Sixth Annual INTERNET TELEPHONY Excellence Awards are presented to companies that provide case studies of IP Communications success experienced by one of their clients after implementing the nominated product/service. Awards are based on demonstrated improvements that the winner's product/service has made in its client's businesses. Through an extensive application process, their customers have verified this outstanding achievement. PTR Baler and Compactor Company (PTR), a manufacturer of cardboard balers and waste compactors for the retail industry, implemented Alteva’s Hosted VoIP as part of its ‘green’ initiatives to implement technologies to help further contribute to its budding corporate sustainability program. “Our mission is to protect and preserve the environment by providing and servicing recycling and waste reduction products, but it’s equally important to examine ways to implement internal green initiatives,� said Joseph Bennett, IT Director at PTR. “When a business chooses a hosted VoIP phone solution for its communications, they contribute to an overall reduction in resources and costs of power and cooling by up to 84 percent. Reducing energy consumption also reduces the carbon dioxide gas emissions produced as a byproduct of generating electricity.� “For PTR, the biggest green factor for its customers is the power saved by moving to the cloud. We estimate that our solutions reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 900,000 pounds per year which is equivalent to the emissions generated in 64 average homes annually,� said Louis Hayner, CSO, Alteva. “Hosted service savings also include the ability to support home teleworking, video conferencing and remote meetings, which lowers power consumption, saves money on gas, and reduces traffic congestion and CO2 emissions pollution.� “The editors of INTERNET TELEPHONY were pleased to grant Alteva with an INTERNET TELEPHONY Excellence Award for their achievements in advancing IP communications and providing genuine solutions in the marketplace. Alteva’s hosted VoIP has proven its outstanding contribution to IP communications and delivered winning solutions for its customers,� said Erik Linask, Group Editorial Director of INTERNET TELEPHONY. The official winners of the 2010 INTERNET TELEPHONY Excellence Awards will be published in the December issue of INTERNET TELEPHONY magazine,
