"By providing local interconnect capabilities in key regions, our SMART EDGE IPX solution enables BT to reduce the cost of voice and data transport, improve the quality of calls while enabling the latest in IP-based solutions and functionality."
He further added: "As IP-enabled services continue to grow in popularity worldwide, we look forward to continuing our longstanding relationship with BT by bringing interconnect services to strategic regions, supporting IP to IP and IP to TDM traffic.”
The SMART EDGE IPX solution uniquely positions GENBAND to optimize networks, offer advanced IP services and improve quality of service for BT's growing customer base. Now, GIPX services of BT supports 290 communications providers worldwide.
