NetCentrex, an enabler of next-generation converged voice and video solutions, today announced that according to a quarterly report issued by industry research firm iLocus, NetCentrex delivered 27.2 percent of local VoIP call minutes based on standards-based call agent platforms in the second quarter of 2005 (2Q05). This, according to the company, substantiates NetCentrex as the company leader in this market.
iLocus, which filed the findings in its VoIP Minutes, 2Q05 Update report, stated in the report that total VoIP local call volume for 2Q05 was 32.6 billion minutes, of which an estimated 11.9 billion minutes were generated by voice over broadband (VoBB) services.
VoIP and bundled IP services are quickly emerging as key competitive tools for service providers in Europe, Asia and North America, stated iLocus Director Jahangir Raina in a company statement. NetCentrex has an advantage on the market through [the companys] commitment to standards-based solutions with open architectures that enable them to profit fully from the growth of broadband networks.
We are delighted that iLocus has confirmed NetCentrex as the number one standards-based VoBB platform used by service providers worldwide, commented NetCentrex Chairman and CTO Olivier Hersent in the announcement of the reports findings.
Founded in 1998, NetCentrex leverages the steady growth in broadband communications and the companys experience in IP network technologies. The next-generation network (NGN) voice and video solutions provider announced yesterday that it has exceeded two million Class 5 VoIP lines in commercial service. Leveraging significant worldwide growth in residential VoBB connectivity and triple-play service bundles, NetCentrex customers are currently activating 5,000 lines per day.
