Global Crossing just announced it has partnered with BroadVoice to aid the company’s Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) (news - alert) -based communication efforts. This new partnership will provide BroadVoice with Global Crossing's VoIP Outbound service and Global Crossing VoIP DID service to provide its residential and business customers with IP-based local and long-distance voice communications.
"Global Crossing's innovative VoIP services allow us to deliver crystal-clear, flat-rate telephone service to our residential and business customers," said David Epstein, BroadVoice's co-founder and president. "Their innovative solutions assist us in providing our customers the top-level quality and service we are so passionate about."
BroadVoice has been using Global Crossing's Outbound Service since March 2004 and is currently deploying Global Crossing's Direct Inward Dial (DID) (news - alert) service. BroadVoice currently offers customers unlimited local and long-distance calls over their home broadband connection.
Global Crossing's net connects about 500 cities in more than 50 countries. The company announced that it had decommissioned a legacy switch in its network core, part of its plan to run all of its voice applications over its fully interoperable VoIP backbone four months ago.
The company’s VoIP Outbound service provides wholesale IP interconnection, transport and call completion of packet-based voice traffic over Global Crossing's integrated TDM (define - news - alert) and VoIP network platforms. Its VoIP DID service is a new direct inward dial service that provides carriers with local origination for nationwide local numbers through a single IP interconnection point, delivering a cost-effective alternative to traditional toll-free applications.
