Commercial VoIP Goes East and West


aeroTelesis, Inc. (news - alert - quote) has been causing quite a stir in the news with their announcements of international deals. The wireless telecommunications technology and services company just publicized that it is lighting up commercial operations of its Voice over IP (VoIP) (define - news - alert - tutorial) network, bridging voice traffic from North America to Southeast Asia. The launch comes after months of the company running a beta version of the service and prepared to start delivering its first "live" network traffic to the East.


Jagan Narayanan, aeroTelesis chairman and CEO, said, "I am very pleased to announce that our test period is completed and the Company is ready to provide commercial services. The launch of our VoIP service represents a significant milestone for the company, as we begin to establish our portfolio of next-generation telecommunication services, starting with our trans-Pacific VoIP network. This will help us achieve both high quality services with cost savings for our subscribers and allow us to reach our ultimate goal of creating value for our shareholders."


With this new agreement, aeroTelesis plans to deliver voice traffic from the Southeast Asia region back to North America as well.


The Company has been dealing with other international markets for the past year. About a month ago, they signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Mabuhay Satellite Corporation, a subsidiary of Philippine Long Distance Telephone (PLDT) Company, providing satellite communication and public network services, in order to jointly develop enhanced broadband satellite services for the Philippine market. 


Earlier this year, they opened an office in El Salvador, being the first of a series of offices to be opened in Central America during the roll out of aeroTelesis' proprietary VoIP network.  Narayanan sees Central America as an important emerging VoIP market for aeroTelesis. He considers that it is a large market for all international calls with the United States; potentially being one of the largest markets for aeroTelesis to deploy USM.


The company sees VoIP opportunities in other international markets and wants to establish similar services during the remainder of this year into 2005.
