PHOENIX and SEOUL, South Korea -- SK Telink, an international telecommunications carrier in South Korea and a subsidiary of SK Telecom, today announced at the BroadSoft Connections 2007 Executive Users Conference that it will work with five major cable providers in South Korea to bring VoIP services to residential consumers, small businesses and home offices using BroadSoft’s BroadWorks® application platform.
SK Telink’s new offering integrates VoIP with customers’ set-top television cable boxes. The BroadWorks-based services work through customers’ cable boxes to display caller ID, a phone directory and other phone services on the TV, while customers watch television programs. These calling features can be controlled with the TV remote control. Residential customers can get premium services such as call pick-up, call transfer and shared-call appearance to use among family members.
“This is the first carrier-grade residential VoIP service based on cable infrastructure in South Korea and establishes SK Telink’s commitment to remain a leader among carriers in Korea and globally,” said Mr. Min-Lae Cho, CEO of SK Telink. “We will focus on rapid growth of residential customers in the next three years. Using BroadWorks allows us to inter-operate with cable TV boxes to offer features such as instant group call, sequential call, shared-call appearance, remote office and other residential services.”
