20 Nov SBC Introduces Voice Over IP Products
MILWAUKEE – SBC Communications Inc. today announced a new portfolio of managed IP products, including a hosted VoIP product, SBC PremierSERV Hosted IP Communication Service (HIPCS), which is available in select markets today.
Also announced today are new SBC PremierSERV IP-VPN options, including network-based services, available in 2004. The customized IP-VPN network connections provide IP connectivity options to support a broad spectrum of IP applications, including VoIP.
IP products allow businesses to converge voice and data applications onto a single platform, allowing for advancements such as a single inbox for voice and e-mail messages, “click-to- call” functionality from PCs, and “find me, follow me” call routing options.
HIPCS integrates customized applications as well as the traditional functionality of business voice-only systems, all through a Web browser-based interface – combining the customer benefits of VoIP with the ease-of-use of a network-hosted solution.
SBC IP-VPN services work with existing data network connections, enabling businesses to add IP-based transport connectivity to supplement existing connections or add new business locations to a network. IP-VPN connectivity can be delivered through SBC PremierSERV Dedicated Internet access connections.
