INX Makes US / Canada Phone Service a Local Call in India

March 1, 2005

Lx_logo-clrSmall Indian exporters and outsourcing companies have increased their visibility in the US and Canadian markets.  This has led to an increased need for affordable, and reliable telecommunications solutions for these companies, in order to maximize services and profits.  Enter Logical Exchange, LLC, which has  has launched its International Number Exchange (INX) Internet phone service, featuring fixed monthly charges for unlimited Internet calling with voice mail, caller ID, follow-me, and online account management.

The company reports that service sign-ups have been particularly brisk throughout India, where it is investing significant resources to develop that market.  The service comes with free downloadable software that allows a PC to be used with a headset and microphone as an international telephone.

The prevalence of outsourcing to India has resulted in Indian businesses wanting to function more closely with their customers, resulting in some having multiple INX lines to keep up with increased opportunities, services, and demands.

By lowering international calling prices, INX intends to become a global telephone service provider.  Customers in India with an Internet connection – broadband, wireless or dial-up – can have an affordable US or Canadian phone number.

Subscribers sign up with any international credit card with a 14-day money-back guarantee.  Plans start at $7.95 a month for unlimited local calling and 2.1 cents/minute to the US and Canada.  Unlimited service costs $19.95/month.

Logical Exchange, LLC is an enhanced IP communications service provider, offering global communications with IP-based services.  The company also has reseller and affiliate programs.

Brix VoIP PreQual Chosen by Canadian Telecom

March 1, 2005

Brix NetworksBrix Networks today announced that Primus Telecom Canada has selected its service assurance products to measure and verify the quality of Primus Canada’s TalkBroadband Internet phone service.

TalkBroadband is Primus Canada‘s VoIP service available to both business and residential customers that allows subscribers to convert their high-speed Internet service into a local telephone connection, without requiring a service call.

Brix’ VoIP PreQual Application will help monitor and constantly improve Primus’ VoIP phone service.  It is built on top of the Brix System, and comprises a PreQual Console and the PreQual Agent, which respectively monitor and test and report on the quality of VoIP calls.

The Brix System, an integrated hardware and software VoIP management solution, provides total service testing across the three most important areas impacting users’ experience of quality: signaling quality (call setup performance), delivery quality (media path network performance), and call quality (overall voice clarity and call experience).

Primus is the largest alternative communications carrier in Canada, and one of that country’s leading ISPs.  In addition to testing the ISP networks, Primus is integrating Brix technology into its ordering process, to test and pre-qualify customers’ Internet connections for optimal use of Primus TalkBroadband.
