"ONE-STOP-SHOP" SOLUTION SIMPLIFIES VOICE AND MESSAGING CONNECTIONS USING THE NATION'S MOST TRUSTED NETWORK
CHICAGO, April 11, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Inteliquent, Inc. (NASDAQ:IQNT, news, filings), the nation's most trusted, voice, text and messaging network for communications service providers, announced today at the 2016 INCOMPAS Show in Washington, D.C., the launch of Omni, a comprehensive voice and messaging solution for the over-the-top (OTT) and Direct Inward Dialing (DID) market. For the first time, Omni will enable communication providers to easily and efficiently power their solutions using Inteliquent services.
"The world of telecommunications can be complex, so we developed Omni, a one-stop-shop, to make integrating voice and messaging functionality into any solution easy and accessible," said Brett Scorza, Inteliquent's CIO and EVP of product development. "Omni allows our customers to focus time and resources on growing their businesses and creating the best solutions for their customers."
Omni equips all service providers, whether they are more traditional telecommunications or next generation communications service providers, with all inbound and outbound voice call flows, message-enabled DIDs, inbound and outbound SMS and MMS messaging, and the market's most user-friendly Web portal and APIs for seamless integration and automation.
"As a wholesale solutions provider focused on delivering quality service, we needed to infuse our inbound DID service as cost effectively as possible," said Neil Rosenblit, CEO, Blitz Telecom. "We chose Omni because we wanted our communications routed through the most reliable network and because it provided us complete control over our communications functionality, while enabling us to easily automate and scale. The portal is also very intuitive, shortening our learning curve to help us save costs and expedite our solution's time to market."
Omni is delivered through Inteliquent's high quality network, which is used by virtually all of the top telecommunication companies in the United States. The network connects millions of voice calls every day.
The new platform also expands the company's offering to providers in the next generation market, a key component of Inteliquent's Growth Forward business strategy.
"Demand for communications that enables two-way connections is increasing rapidly. This is the new paradigm for communications and, through Omni, we've created the infrastructure to power it," said Alissa Clousing, Inteliquent's vice president of product. "Inteliquent is constantly innovating and moving beyond voice to better serve our customers and reach new entrants in the communications world to diversify our revenue stream, one of our primary focus areas of our Growth Forward plan. This truly signifies our evolution from a traditional voice-only telecommunications provider to the premier interconnection partner for communication providers of all types."
Representatives will be onsite at the INCOMPAS Show in Meeting Room 31 to discuss how Omni and Inteliquent are shaping the new communications ecosystem. For more information, please visit HTTP://WWW.INTELIQUENT.COM/INDUSTRY-SOLUTIONS/NEXT-GENERATION
