i2Telecom launches its Virtual VoIP Network Operator program in an agreement with Clari-net International to resell i2’s VoIP service, augmented by Clari-net’s own local and long distance carrier agreements.
i2Telecom International, Inc (OTCBB:ITUI) announced a global business development partnership with Clari-net International as part of its program to accelerate and extend the penetration of i2’s VoIP service worldwide, and enhance the sale of its platform products.
Clari-net will resell i2Telecom’s InternetTalker MG-3 VoIP microgateways across Southeast Asia, the United Kingdom and elsewhere. As part of the agreement, Clari-net has placed an initial order for 1,000 microgateways. Clari-net will develop its own custom products and rate plans.
By standardizing on i2Telecom’s InternetTalker MG-3 VoIP microgateway and back office systems, Clari-net and other VVNO plan partners will leverage their existing base of international wholesale partners to build share as the VoIP service market develops in their service territories.
Clari-net currently operates in nine countries on three continents, and plans to launch a mass market VoIP service in Australia by the end of Q1 2005 to complement its existing VoIP services in Italy, Hungary, Peru and Costa Rica.
i2Telecom’s proprietary technology platform is built to SIP, and its revenue includes prepayments from sales of InternetTalker integrated access devices, recurring monthly subscriptions, call minute termination fees, and original equipment manufacturer royalties.
