CARRIER CLASS VOIP TECHNOLOGY GAINING MOMENTUM SAYS COMZTEK
The application of voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) networks continues to gain momentum with major telecommunications firms around the world deploying carrier class equipment to offer services that benefit from proven cost savings with VoIP technology. That’s according to Anton van Bers, product manager for Nortel Networks at distributor Comztek.
He explains that by using VoIP technology, service providers around the world can drive down their operational costs by up to 50 percent, while building the foundation for new revenue opportunities such as hosted VoIP or VoIP virtual private networks for business customers.
Van Bers reveals that Nortel Networks has secured a contract with New World Telecom in Hong Kong for the deployment of its Succession softswitches and gateways. "This follows other strategic Succession deployments, contracts and trials in 2002, including Bell Canada, Charter Communications, China Telecom, Connex, Telecable de Austurias, TELUS, Tiscali and Verizon," says van Bers.
