Aug 01, 2007 (08:08 AM EDT)
GOLDEN, Colo., Aug. 1 /PRNewswire/ -- New Global Telecom (NGT), the nation's leading provider of wholesale hosted and trunk-based VoIP solutions, has announced the signing of Atlantic Broadband, a top 15 cable operator. Under the agreement, NGT will become the managed services provider for Atlantic Broadband's SIP-based telephony solutions for both residential and business end users.
"We wanted a partner for our SIP initiatives who could provide a managed solution that encompasses both basic residential services as well as the most advanced commercial offerings, including next generation trunking and PBX replacement. We found that and more in NGT," said David Isenberg, vice president of products for Atlantic Broadband. "NGT has a field-proven BroadSoft-based solution as well as the operational elements and expertise that will enable us to reliably deliver best-in-class SIP telephony services."
The NGT service includes a range of residential and commercial feature packages, telephone numbers throughout the U.S., FCC-compliant 911, as well as key back office functionality including provisioning, usage rating or complete end user billing, as well as session border controller (SBC) management and network monitoring services. A key component of the service is integrated voice origination and termination services from Level 3.
"NGT and Level 3 have fine tuned their integrated VoIP solution over the past three years to ultimately address the next growth engine for the cable industry, which is business voice," said Rich DiGeronimo, vice president and general manager of cable markets for Level 3. "The NGT and Level 3 voice solution delivers cable operators an end-to-end service that enables them to rapidly and confidently launch a proven solution to their end users."
"As the first to deploy converged video-internet-phone 'triple-plays' in many of its markets, Atlantic Broadband is leveraging the power and flexibility of its broadband network to deploy the most advanced suite of phone services possible -- not just for residential customers but to meet the demanding needs of small and medium-sized businesses in their footprint as well," said John Guillaume, senior vice president, product and marketing for NGT. "NGT's wholesale VoIP services will enable Atlantic Broadband to remain ahead of the competition with proven, feature-rich services that their entire range of customers can use today."
The NGT service will enable residential voice services in select Atlantic Broadband markets in Q3, followed by a launch of advanced business voice services later this year.
"NGT's focus on end-to-end service delivery will serve it well in the cable MSO marketplace," said Rebecca Swensen, research analyst, VoIP services for analyst firm IDC. "NGT's experience managing disparate VoIP elements and software solutions will help them navigate interoperability and day-to-day challenges."
NGT's wholesale VoIP service is currently utilized as part of triple-play offerings from cable MSOs and Fiber-to-the-Home (FTTH) providers. NGT, in conjunction with Level 3, will profile its VoIP solutions for cable operators at the CableLabs Summer Conference, August 5-8th in Keystone, CO.
