DOVER, Del. & GAITHERSBURG, Md.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 23, 2005--VOICE.SKY Communications, a facilities-based carrier with domestic and global points of presence in New York, London, Atlanta, Chicago, Miami, Los Angeles, Boston, Dallas, and Hong Kong, and NexTone Communications(R), the leader in scalable session management of real-time IP services such as voice over IP (VoIP), today announced that VOICE.SKY has deployed NexTone's iView Management System (iVMS)
NexTone's iVMS enables VOICE.SKY to more efficiently manage VoIP interconnects while supporting the growth of VoIP traffic on a global scale.
Additionally, VOICE.SKY is able to offer new revenue-generating services and maintain profitability without sacrificing profit margins
NexTone's iVMS is an intelligent network management tool that delivers increased visibility, end-to-end provisioning, troubleshooting, and analysis of a carrier's VoIP traffic in real-time; thereby simplifying the provisioning and management of large-scale voice over IP (VoIP) and other real-time IP service deployments.
NexTone's iVMS is the industry's first carrier-class platform to provide a common end-to-end view of real-time IP service performance through network interconnects.
iVMS also enables the logical partitioning of NexTone's Multiprotocol Session Controller (MSC), allowing virtual MSCs to share the same physical infrastructure while maintaining dedicated control of quality of service (QoS), privileges, and other important VoIP characteristics
iVMS' logical partitioning functionality enables VOICE.SKY to offer a new managed VoIP partition service, while mitigating the risks associated with VoIP network expansion for the company's global customer base.
Through the use of iVMS, VOICE.SKY can now address the complex needs of companies looking to expand their VoIP services, but who do not wish to manage session controller equipment on their own
"Having deployed NexTone's MSC platform last year for its advanced session routing capabilities, we knew the company could address VOICE.SKY's end-to-end needs.
As a proven provider of VoIP interconnectivity, and the only session controller company that offers sophisticated traffic engineering capabilities for VoIP, NexTone's products help VOICE.SKY achieve greater productivity and reduce operational costs," said Saud Altawash, chief executive officer, VOICE.SKY.
"Global connectivity is a priority for VOICE
.SKY and with NexTone's products deployed in our network, we can interconnect with more carriers worldwide.
NexTone's products also allow us to offer our global customers new, revenue-enhancing services while increasing our profitability and extending our service reach." "The proliferation of VoIP deployments in the Middle East and Africa is a testament to the power and reach of VoIP technology
VOICE.SKY's VoIP solutions enable global carriers to quickly and easily deploy new services into this region at minimal cost," said Nicholas Turner, NexTone's general manager for Europe, the Middle East, and Africa.
"VOICE.SKY is using the partitioning functionality of NexTone's iVMS to enable new revenue-generating VoIP services for their carrier customers who could not enter these markets with traditional voice services."
As part of the partnership, VOICE.SKY will act as a NexTone preferred switch partitioning partner in the Middle East and Africa
