Broadview Networks (Booth 701) announced it is moving forward with its strategic plan to evolve to a next-generation IP-based services provider.
Separately, it announced the enhancements to its wholesale VoIP product line.
As part of its IP strategy, Broadview will implement an MPLS-enabled IP infrastructure, VoIP softswitch technology and a unified messaging platform. This multiphase initiative is expected to be under way by the end of first quarter.
This will allow VoIP trunking and dynamic bandwidth capability to be added to Broadviews Synergy Integrated T1 product, said Ken Shulman, CTO and CIO, for Broadview Networks.
He said additional offers will include MPLS-based VPNs for secure, private data exchange and dedicated IP WAN circuits with performance SLAs for inter-site IP PBX voice traffic and other latency- and jitter-sensitive applications.
Further, the companys Broadspeed Office Suite, a fully managed hosted key system solution, will be offered in new markets coinciding with its on-net footprint. Currently the service is available on a limited basis in New York City (LATA 132), Shulman said. Unified messaging services also will be offered to Broadspeed Office Suite customers as well as all other VoIP and circuit-switched voice customers.
The combination of Office Suite and unified messaging will provide for powerful message- and call-management capabilities beyond those available just through unified messaging, Shulman added.
In other news, Broadview Networks has expanded its wholesale VoIP service to include E911, LIDB, CNAM and directory services. Many VoIP Providers already are using Broadviews wholesale PRI and POTS connectivity, data colocation, hosted IP PBX services, burstable IP bandwidth, DIDs, number porting, 800 resporg and last-mile access.
