Roshan picks WTL for VoIP upgrade

10 Dec 2014

Afghan mobile operator Roshan has selected World Telecoms Labs (WTL) to provide its voice-over-internet protocol (VoIP) switches to improve call quality and reduce the cost of voice traffic between its international gateway in Kabul and its VoIP point of presence (PoP) in London. In a press release from the vendor, WTL explained that its VoIP switches have been specifically designed to replace the ‘huge, expensive [and] maintenance-heavy switches that have traditionally been used to transfer VoIP traffic onto other networks.’ The new switches utilise Network Optimisation Protocol (NOP) compression techniques and will provide Roshan with increased capacity and greater flexibility and reliability. Further, WTL claims that the solution is fully redundant.
