VegaStream partners with KBT Systems Corporation to provide VoIP solutions to Telus Canada
Spring VON, Santa Clara, USA – 29 March 2004 – VegaStream, a leading supplier of dedicated business VoIP (Voice over IP) Gateways, today announced its partnership with voice reseller KBT Systems Corp. Under the terms of the agreement, VegaStream’s Vega 100 VoIP gateways will be distributed to KBT customers including Canadian network operator, Telus.
VegaStream combines VoIP and the SIP protocol to provide a Prepaid Calling Card Starter System specifically designed for VoIP service providers. The solution ensures that companies such as KBT systems can benefit from the advantages of VoIP including flexibility and low infrastructure costs whilst providing high quality – and profitable – voice services to its customers.
“VoIP is quickly becoming a reality for enterprises especially those within the telecoms industry. Companies that stay on PSTN will not be able to compete and will very soon be left behind,” said Tim Burne, CEO of VegaStream “VegaStream gateways enable companies such as KBT Systems to bring down their call costs making their own services more profitable.”
KBT Systems provide prepaid minutes and infrastructure to telecoms carriers and resellers in the US and Canada. One of its customers, Telus is the second largest telecommunications company in Canada with 4.9 million network access lines and 3.4 million wireless subscribers. Utilising next generation Internet-based technologies, Telus provides subscribers with a full range of telecommunications products and services including data, voice and wireless services across Canada.
With such a large customer base, operators such as Telus demand non-stop support to ensure a reliable service is provided to its customers. VegaStream’s industry leading VoIP solutions, services and support enable service providers to cater for even the largest of customers.
“As a reseller ourselves, KBT values good support. VegaStream has been extremely responsive to our needs as a customer and has allowed us to provide the same quality of service to our own,” said Steven Mundy President & CEO at KBT systems. “We are a very happy customer.”
