Peerless is leveraging Ribbon’s Cloud2Edge for its ability to offer Quality of Service (QoS) management capabilities via an end-to-end view, from Peerless’ network to the customer premises to IP endpoints. In addition, Peerless is leveraging Ribbon’s Cloud2Edge as a Primary Rate Interface (PRI) Gateway for improved voice and data transmission.
