iBasis is using this year’s ITU Africa as a platform to shout out its Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) message. Not only is the firm explaining how carriers all over the world are rapidly embracing VoIP to gain an economic and technological advantage, but it is also detailing how Africa can benefit too, especially when it comes to expand its communications infrastructure cost-effectively. “Africa has begun its migration to VoIP, as a few African nations have experienced dramatic growth in the volume of international VoIP minutes they terminate over the past two years,” says Dan Powdermaker, senior vice president for worldwide sales at iBasis. “The ITU Africa forum will help to build understanding of the business and social benefits of this important bridge technology, and will help national carriers and regulators to forge productive relationships for the future,” he adds. The company recently unveiled DirectVoIP, a service designed to simplify and accelerate carriers’ implementation of direct VoIP interconnections to the iBasis global network for international voice services. Carriers that implement DirectVoIP interconnections benefit from the lower capital and operational costs of VoIP and immediate access to iBasis’ global VoIP network, which comprises more than 90 on-net countries. According to Powdermaker, carriers taking advantage of DirectVoIP are also able to leverage iBasis’ interoperability with a broad range of VoIP infrastructure equipment.
