Telstra Inc., a service provider, today unveiled T-VoIP, its version of IP telephony, for sale to companies worldwide.
“T-VoIP is based on Telstra’s global IP VPN platform that is backed by our service level agreements,” says Dan Kerth, president and COO of Telstra. “Companies can combine voice and data traffic to maximize their return on investment and reduce the cost once associated with sending on-net and off-net voice traffic over a public-switched network.”
The technology sends calls over a private network, avoiding international toll calls among offices. Access speeds range from 128kbps through 155mbps, according to Telstra, and voice and data traffic can share the same local access loop.
Plus, says Ilissa Miller, product marketing manager for the company, “A monthly rate for the on-net calling plan provides customers with virtually unlimited intra-company calls. [O]ff-net is provided at a flat rate per termination country, independent of the country of origin.”
Telstra is offering companies a free analysis to determine if T-VoIP would save them money.
