Integral has also sold into a group of CLECs in Minnesota, including Jaguar Communications and HickoryTech.

One key for IAD vendors to appealing to these CLECs, says RHK analyst Claude Romans, is building interfaces from the aggregation gear to classic Class 5 telephone switches and newer softswitches. Integral didn't initially support classic telephone company switches, he ssays, but eventually added support for the GR303 protocol for voice concentration typically used by these devices.

Indeed, Kreckel says GR303 support was important for Westelcom.
