Voicenet Solutions launches managed VoIP and broadband services for UK SMEs
…Kicks off recruitment drive for channel partners to resell services
21 March 2005 – Voicenet Solutions Limited (www.voicenet-solutions.com), a new UK provider of premium Voice over IP and broadband business solutions to SMEs, today announced the launch of its VoIP services, VNconnect and VNgateway. Led by a highly experienced senior management team, which includes Non-Executive Chairman Godfrey Wilson, founder and Managing Director of MLL Telecom, and Chief Executive Officer David Crombie, a co-founder of Symphony Telecom Plc, Voicenet is dedicated to providing companies with next-generation telephony solutions that offer greater flexibility and improved communications, whilst significantly reducing costs.
Voicenet also announced an aggressive reseller recruitment programme, whereby it intends to bring on board a number of strategic partners within the next year to resell its services.
VNconnect is Voicenet’s comprehensive IP Centrex managed solution for companies that want to benefit from the significant savings achievable by divesting themselves of PBXs and BT lines. IP handsets simply plug in to the Local Area Network and calls are handled centrally via an IP Centrex, providing advanced functionality without the requirement for a PBX. The service offers free on-net, between branch calls, a unified dialling plan between remote locations, reduced calling rates to all destinations and complete user online phone management tools.
For companies that want to continue to use their existing PBXs, but take advantage of the significant business benefits of VoIP, VNgateway seamlessly links existing PBXs to Voicenet’s IP Centrex, offering free on-net calls, cost effective upgrades, improved scalability and a unified dialling plan between remote locations.
To ensure continuous service availability for customers, Voicenet provides its VNbroadband services over Easynet’s state-of-the-art, pan-European broadband network. Voicenet has also built redundancy into its offerings by hosting all its services in IP Centrex switches located in two highly secure data centres, based in different areas of London.
David Crombie, CEO, Voicenet Solutions, commented, “The ability to make telephone calls over the Internet has been available for a number of years, but, until the advent of broadband, has never been a serious “business to business” product. With the development of broadband networks of the calibre of Easynet’s, all that has now changed and we have selected a best-of-breed approach to the products and services we offer the business market. We feel confident that the flexibility offered by Voicenet Solutions’s VoIP technology provides a level of scalability combined with features and cost advantages that will render the traditional PBX model of communication redundant.”
Alan Ryan, Head of Broadband Channels at Easynet, said: “Easynet’s 21st century IP network provides its partners with a flexible, scalable infrastructure with vast bandwidth capacity, making it an ideal channel for Voicenet Solutions’s customers to benefit from its innovative voice services.”
By relieving organisations of the problems and costs surrounding standard PBX-type telephony, Voicenet Solutions is opening up the world of affordable, converged multi-service networks. Voicenet offers dramatic economies of scale combined with a range of features unavailable through the standard telecoms route, including:
– Free On-Net calls
– Greatly reduced calling-costs to other locations
– Powerful, personally controlled communication networks
– Voicemail accessible from any phone or Internet connected PC
– Extensive home-to-office networks at zero cost
– Powerful network management and configuration software tools
– Low cost set-up and no maintenance charges
