Nokia Siemens Networks (NSN) has announced the deployment of its voice-over-IP (VoIP) platform for fixed line operator Versatel Communications, enabling the German firm to offer converged services to enterprise customers. Through the rollout of the vendor’s hiQ4200/4300 VoIP solution, Versatel will be able to immediately offer services such as IP Centrex and Customer Self Administration, enabling its business subscribers to use the full range of services centrally provided by Versatel, and also have complete control over the services in use. ‘With the new platform, our enterprise customers can now directly connect their Private Branch Exchanges (PBXs) to Versatel via a cost effective IP connection. In addition, we are equipped to offer multimedia services to our business customers from a single central location,’ commented Karsten Fuchs, Versatel’s head of Network, Service and Application Design. Versatel said the new offering will allow it to explore new business opportunities and thus expand its customer base.
