P1 to intro NGV SIP trunking service in 2011

17 Nov 2010

Malaysian wireless broadband provider Packet One Networks (P1) has signed a deal with software solution provider Intuittech to promote a Next Generation Voice Session Initiation Protocol (NGV SIP) trunking service, according to Bernama. P1 is expected to introduce the new service in East Malaysia in 2011, with the operator initially targeting businesses with more than 100 telephone lines as potential customers; a comparable service for residential users is likely to follow. Michael Lai, P1’s CEO, said that the enterprise customers could reduce operational costs by eliminating hardware and recurring network charges associated with traditional public switched telephone network trunks.
