The Interconnect Solution is enabled by G9 Converged Gateway (News - Alert) and C3 Gateway Controller to provide any-to-any switching and media processing support in all wireless and wireline, access and core, IP and TDM environments for enhanced flexibility and cost-effectiveness.
In essence, this newly released solution will help Global IP Tandem to enable seamless routing of VoIP originated traffic between Global IP Tandem's member companies.
In a press release, Steve White, chief operating officer at Global IP Tandem, said, "The flexibility and scalability of the integrated interconnect solution made GENBAND the clear choice to support our revolutionary offering that switches VoIP originated calls between providers with no interconnection to the PSTN."
He further added, "This service is available to regulated and unregulated VoIP providers, Wholesalers, Cable Providers, ILECs, CLECs, and other ISP/ESP companies in the U.S. and Canada. Our simple, straightforward solution easily interconnects service provider networks and delivers seamless routing that enables 'flat rate' functionality for providers that originate VoIP traffic."
The Global IP Tandem network utilizes unique routing methods to route calls directly between service providers. It bypasses the PSTN and enables the operator to offer a 'flat rate' to member companies for calls placed anywhere in North America.
"GENBAND is very pleased to support Global IP Tandem in offering all VoIP providers in the U.S. and Canada an interconnect solution that operates independent of the PSTN, thereby eliminating the complicated structure of tariffs, specialized collocation and integration costs," said Mark Pugerude (News - Alert), president, Global Sales and Marketing, GENBAND. "Global IP Tandem's powerful switching process utilizes advanced technology to deliver high quality, Point-to-Point connections, and we are thrilled to be a part of their efforts to level the playing field for service providers across North America."
