Network Billing Systems LLC (NBS), a N.J.-based reseller and provider of IP and TDM voice and data services, is using the Channel Partners Conference & Expo to highlight its recent purchase of the operations and customer base of Simlab.net.
Simlab’s forte is the deployment of managed private WANs with an emphasis on QoS, Internet and VoIP services. By adding the resources of Simlab to its own already significant abilities in this arena, NBS has enhanced its capacity to provide traditional facilities-based services, advanced IP voice and IT services, as well as managed networks and high-speed Internet connectivity.
“The combined capabilities of the two companies, now integrated and functioning as one, cover even more of the data and telecom needs of our customers,” said John Kaufman, CEO of NBS. “When it comes to a diverse solution set for any telecom network-related requirement, we’ve truly become the one-stop shop provider we set out to be.”
NBS President Russell Markman echoes those comments and points to the integrated company’s flexible, custom-tailored solutions. “It is important that we maintain our leadership role in the data and telecom areas, and Simlab strengthens our core competencies in the provisioning of both facilities-based and carrier services.”
Anthony Hidalgo, NBS vice president of product development, was part of the Simlab team that came over with the purchase.
“Our philosophy is to create tailored managed solutions and be the one single point of contact to our customers,” said Hidalgo. “Additionally, our network is optimized for VoIP, and we run QoS end to end, which is something our competitors seem to overlook.”
As a result, according to Hidalgo, NBS wholesale partners now can add QoS-based solutions to their existing network infrastructures. In addition to their nationwide voice termination and origination products, VoIP wholesalers are able to interconnect to the NBS network and gain complete access to new products and services, such as managed private networks, enhanced for QoS.
