Global IP Solutions Inks Mobile Deal with Argela; Launches New Blog

By Michelle Robart, TMCnet Editor

Global IP Solutions (GIPS), a company that provides video and voice processing in IP communications, today revealed that it has inked a deal with Turkish-based Argela, a company wholly owned by Turk Telekom.
Headquartered in Istanbul, Turkey, Argela provides telecom operators with innovative next-generation solutions.
The agreement between the two companies includes platform, professional service fees and royalties.
Customers of GIPS are able to deliver unmatched quality, with a faster time to market and less risk than competitors’ solutions. GIPS provides services to application developers, service providers, and network equipment vendors.
Some of the company’s customers include Nortel (News - Alert), Oracle, Samsung, WebEx, Yahoo!, AOL and other key players in the VoIP market.
In other GIPS news, the company recently launched an online blog, in an effort to keep readers up-to-date on industry news and company events, as well as share GIPS’ perspective on various market trends.
A December 3rd blog entry discusses current market trends and where companies should be spending their money during the economic recession. Citing a recent PC World article, the blog points to unified communications (UC) as a sound investment for today’s tough economic times.
Written by Peter Judge, the PC World article quotes a Redshift survey conducted by Mitel that states that workers in the UK are demanding UC solutions. Unified communications is gaining lots of recognition in the communications industry as it offers numerous benefits to the enterprise. Streamlined operations, enhanced worker productivity and reduced costs are just some of the ways  companies can benefit with a UC solution.
UC in its simplest form, is just teleworking through a DSL connection using an IP phone (which can in itself be just software), according to Judge. Some believe this to be true as companies can benefit in many ways by adding simple functionality on top of their existing infrastructure instead of engaging in large replacement type installations. The first step is to add an IM/VoIP client, which is an easy way to improve efficiency by promoting collaboration, improving the ability to contact co-workers, and freeing employees from their desks.
After an IM/VoIP client is added, conferencing capabilities are then implemented. This can also be accomplished through software solutions. Although this may increase complexity for servers hosting conferencing applications, the investment can produce significant cost savings when compared to standard conferencing services.
