AUSTIN, Texas -- General Bandwidth Inc., a leading Voice over IP equipment manufacturer enabling rapid deployment and new service revenue generation over broadband networks, announced today the selection of the G6 Universal Media Gateway by IP Telesis, a state-of-the-art Voice over IP (VoIP) telecommunications provider merging advanced voice applications over high-speed data lines.
IP Telesis has deployed the G6 Universal Media Gateway to enhance its current hosted PBX service by offering integrated voice and data services. The G6 platform enables customers with existing PBX equipment to reduce costs by dynamically integrating voice and data on the same broadband service. For those customers without existing PBX equipment, the G6 platform enables IP Telesis' hosted business voice over IP solution, which provides powerful business class features without requiring large investments in equipment.
"After an extensive search for the right media gateway, we chose General Bandwidth's G6 platform because of its scalability and interoperability," stated Brian Pettersen, president of IP Telesis. "The support we have received from General Bandwidth's technical staff further validated our decision. The addition of the G6 platform to our network immediately creates new revenue opportunities, allowing us to improve our competitive position and offer customers additional value."
General Bandwidth's award-winning G6 Universal Media Gateway is an open standards, circuit-to-packet platform that is deployed in a service provider's switching office, head-end or Point of Presence. It enables voice communications between packet-based networks and circuit-based networks. Proven interoperable with and simultaneously supporting the leading Class 5 switches, softswitches, SIP application servers, digital loop carriers (DLCs), and customer premises equipment (CPE), the G6 platform uniquely enables service providers to accelerate VoIP services and network migration by leveraging their existing and next generation network assets. The G6 platform is a true carrier class solution that provides full redundancy and a fully integrated emergency stand-alone capability.
"The many successful deployments of dynamically-integrated voice and data solutions over packet networks demonstrates the tremendous value in providing advanced VoIP services to customers," said Charles Vogt, president and chief executive officer of General Bandwidth. "IP Telesis' selection of the G6 platform and rapid market roll-out validates the ease with which service providers can quickly offer new VoIP services and achieve profitable revenue growth."
