Telephony media gateway vendor Vegastream has announced today that it has successful completed compatibility testing between its Vega IP Gateways and Timico, an independent provider of converged communication services to the business market. The agreement supports channel partners wishing to connect customers’ existing telephony platforms to Timico’s VoIP for Business service using Vegastream’s Vega IP Gateway with a guaranteed seamless integration and a rapid uptake of the service.
“Companies of all sizes realise the benefits of VoIP but in many instances are not prepared to write off their investment in legacy equipment and the disruption that is involved – instead they are deploying gateways which offer a compelling alternative,” said Steve Davis, VP Sales and Marketing, EMEA, Vegastream. “Compatibility with Timico brings new IP services within the range of smaller enterprises and a rapid return on investment for channel partners.”
Timico’s VoIP for Business service is a hosted IP PBX Centrex solution that bridges the void between consumer internet-based voice applications and Enterprise VoIP. Consistent quality of service and business strength robustness is ensured through the company’s ownership of its own core network and its partnership with Nortel, which enables it to offer SIP-based, multimedia communications server (MCS) services that provide and an enhanced feature set.
“Timico’s VoIP for Business service was developed to provide a robust, business strength VoIP solution that used to be the preserve of large organisations available to the SME sector,” said Trefor Davies, Technology Director, Timico. “ Interoperability with Vegastream allows Timico to extend that service and provides channel partners with an additional revenue stream that is high value to the customer, allowing them the benefits of VoIP without the risk.”
