Business communications company BT Conferencing, a division of BT Group (NYSE:BT), has selected IP-voice infrastructure solutions provider Sonus Networks (NASDAQ:SONS) to develop a scalable version of its customer conferencing solutions. The new platform will initially deployed in Boston and is expected to go global over the next year.
The Sonus platform will allow existing BT customers to scale reservationless conference solutions according to their needs, while retaining their existing call access numbers. New customers will use a single set of access numbers for their reservationless service.
The new platform also provides BT Conferencing with improved flexibility, a future-proof foundation and ensures that, in case of network problems, calls can be serviced from alternate locations. It also allows for seamless shifting from analog to digital environments and back by leveraging Sonus' complete IP-voice infrastructure, including the GSX 9000 Open Services Switch and the PSX Call Routing Server.
