DENVER (Business Wire) -- Comcast Business, a unit of Comcast Cable, the nation's largest video, high-speed Internet and phone provider to business and residential customers, today announced that Comcast Business VoiceEdge™, a cloud-based voice and unified communications solution, is now available in the Denver area. Fully managed over Comcast's network, Business VoiceEdge eliminates the need for expensive on-site PBX equipment or key systems, provides a manageable monthly cost, and delivers high service quality to improve communications and productivity.

The service will be available throughout the greater Denver area. The service is now offered across 39 states in Comcast's network.

“Colorado has a diverse range of companies and industries that rely on voice services to stay connected to employees and customers who are ‘on the go' more than ever before,” said Shawn Adamson, vice president at Comcast Business, Mile High region. “The addition of our cloud-based voice service allows customers to quickly and easily add reliable, HD-quality calling with a full set of UC features to help them communicate better and get business done faster.”

  • Be Anywhere: Lets workers live the one number lifestyle by integrating their work line with their mobile device, home office or other locations to have calls follow them or push/pull them between devices without having to disconnect and then reconnect the call.
  • Voicemail-to-email: Voice messages conveniently reach “anytime, anywhere” workers when away from the office or working remotely by sending a copy of the voicemail to their email.
  • Telephony Toolbar: A downloadable client that enables click-to-dial and service management from within Microsoft Outlook, Internet Explorer, and Mozilla Firefox.
  • Business Voice Continuity: Redirect calls to back-up numbers if there is a power outage or other on-site issues to keep business operating.
  • Multi-Location Simplicity and Commonality: On-net calling between sites using extensions, unified calling experience, add new locations quickly, and share call handling (receptionist, hunt groups and auto attendants) across offices.

Comcast Business VoiceEdge is the latest addition to the Comcast suite of voice solutions, which include Business Class Voice, a voice line service designed for small businesses, and Business Class Trunks, an intelligent phone service for larger organizations that works with existing PBX equipment and provides scalability and security using Comcast's advanced IP network.
