Broadvox Taps Inteliquent to Expand the Reach of its HD Voice Service
VoIP and Unified Communication specialist Broadvox extended its HD voice capabilities on Tuesday by partnering with Inteliquent, a provider of global interconnection and interoperability solutions. Broadvox is leveraging the power of Inteliquent's commercial HD Voice Interconnect solution to route high-definition calls to other service provider networks and to hosted voice application providers, thus expanding the number of endpoints that their customers can reach.
Before implementing Inteliquent's high-definition wideband voice interconnection solution, carriers like Broadbox could only route HD voice calls to and from other Broadvox customers. The company can now connect HD voice calls made by customers of other service providers interconnected with Inteliquent. The solution is designed to eliminate the non-interconnected “islands of HD” that many service providers suffer from.
The HD Voice Interconnect solution supplements Inteliquent's existing voice termination platform, which terminates over 11 billion minutes a month. The solution terminates quality voice traffic to mobile and wireline service providers across a broad HD footprint, enabling carriers to add incremental value to their current lineup on voice services.
"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," said Gary Tabachnik, vice president of business development of Broadvox. Tabachnik credited Inteliquent with a testing and turn-up process that 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," added Surendra Saboo, president and COO of Inteliquent.
The announcement comes just two weeks after the company, formerly known as Neutral Tandem, officially rebranded itself as Inteliquent. The company acquired IP transit specialist Tinet 18 months ago and felt that the evolution of its portfolio required a more accurate brand name that reflects who they are and what they are going to be in the future.
