New Zealand fixed line operator TelstraClear has selected Texas-based IP infrastructure manufacturer GENBAND to supply it with a full voice-over-internet-protocol (VoIP) interconnection service for other carriers connecting to its next generation IP network. The solution will allow TelstraClear to reduce costs, expand markets and interwork with the growing volume of peering and managed interconnect services such as the GSM Association’s IP eXchange (IPX).
Richard Bateman, product development manager at TelstraClear commented: ‘After an extensive vendor review, we selected GENBAND’s IP infrastructure and services to enable our interconnect service, which will allow us to expand our offerings and provide an end-to-end IP solution for improved quality and reliability of VoIP calls’. Pablo Gargiulo, GENBAND’s president of global sales, added: ‘Our suite of IP solutions and services allow TelstraClear to seamlessly enable calls over multi-node networks, while ensuring greater network security, quality of service and interoperability of next-generation IP communication services. The GENBAND solution provides carriers a competitive advantage by cost-effectively delivering end-to-end call connectivity to subscribers’.
