Business telephone service provider Tpad (News - Alert) has announced the successful completion of its interoperability testing of SIP Trunking products and services with UK-based Internet provider Supanet. The company said that the tests proved that its SIP Trunking packages can work with almost any session initiation protocol (SIP)-ready IP private branch exchange (PBX (News - Alert)) platform.
A streamlined next generation IP telephony solution which allows exchange of voice traffic through Internet connectivity rather than traditional physical cables or PRIs, SIP is deemed more cost-effective than any other telephony solution available today.
Steven Johns (News - Alert), marketing manager at Tpad, said that the company has prioritized this protocol testing to ensure that it offers only the best compatibility for a highly efficient upgrade.
"We aim at providing customers a complete all-in-one solution for their every business telecom need,” Johns said. “Our SIP Trunks are offered with synchronous high-speed Internet connection that assures lightning-fast services, not only in the upload and download of data, but in routing calls as well.”
Johns believes that this interoperability certification will provide customers an assurance that the company’s technology partners will be able to support their existing communication environment and offer no less than the most efficient and most cost-effective connectivity.
In collaboration with Tpad, SIP Trunking is seen to make packages simpler and more robust for current and potential customers.
Additionally, the collaboration of Tpad and Supanet is expected to allow delivery of complete telecommunications services that can work with traditional TDM services and installed IP PBX systems.
According to Simon Jones, director of sales at Tpad, the company is confident that this year, with the full launch of its SIP services, it’ll see a significant increase of new customers and resellers that will take on the company’s SIP-IP/PBX with Supanet Internet services.
"What Tpad offers with SIP Trunking is not only about saving, it is also about improving workforce mobility and increased productivity as we give each of them connectivity at a fraction of a price,” said Jones. “Employees can make phone calls and can be reached through a single number that is accessible at multiple locations so that your customers, co-workers and vendors can get prompt responses.”
In March, Tpad joined forces with Nokia (News - Alert) to launch Mobile VoIP Calls on Nokia S40 mobiles.
