Implementation Expands Reach of Broadvox’s HD Voice Offering
CHICAGO, Feb. 28, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Inteliquent(NASDAQ:IQNT – News), a leading provider of global interconnection and interoperability solutions, announces the implementation of its commercial HD Voice Interconnect solution for Broadvox. Inteliquent’s HD Voice service is a High Definition wideband voice interconnection solution for the competitive carrier market. Inteliquent solves the problem of non-interconnected ‘islands of HD’ by providing HD interconnection to end points on other service provider networks interconnected with Inteliquent, and adds incremental value to carriers offering HD voice services to their end customers. The service has been successfully interconnected with Broadvox, a leading VoIP and Unified Communications solutions provider.
Inteliquent’s HD Voice Interconnect enables service providers to efficiently route HD Voice calls to other service provider networks and to hosted voice application providers. While Broadvox has HD voice capabilities today, by using Inteliquent as an intermediary to other HD voice capable, Broadvox has notably increased the number of endpoints that their customers can reach; resulting in a higher quality HD voice calling capability. In addition, calls made by customers of other service providers interconnected with Inteliquent can now be completed to Broadvox’s customers with the same high quality HD service.
“As the leader in offering HD interconnection solutions for service providers, Inteliquent’s extensive connectivity makes it easy for us to expand the reach of our voice quality and capabilities for our customers,” comments Gary Tabachnik, Vice President Business Development of Broadvox. “Inteliquent made the testing and turn-up process very easy. It was quick and seamless.”
“We are pleased to add Broadvox to the group of service providers who are taking advantage of our HD Voice Interconnect service as part of their broader wideband voice offering,” commentsSurendra Saboo, President and COO of Inteliquent.
Inteliquent‘s HD Voice solution is designed to be simple to use, without requiring complex routing tables or special number provisioning. It also provides a broad, High Definition footprint to terminate quality voice traffic to mobile and wireline service providers. The service offers improved quality and low latency voice termination across its entire private SIP-based network. HD Voice is a seamless service to Inteliquent’s existing voice termination platform that terminates over 11 billion minutes a month.
