Jordan Telecom (JT) has unveiled an international virtual private network (VPN) service that provides low-cost access for companies managing call centre operations and global business communications. Jordanian organisations can now use the teleco’s service, which is being run by its Wanadoo internet service provider (ISP), to connect to branches and customers in over 220 countries. Jordan Telecom’s VPN service will allow companies to operate their own private broadband networks, exchanging voice and data traffic between branches and locations as if they were internal calls and network traffic, thus reducing the cost of communications. The service brings cost advantages compared to technologies such as Frame Relay when companies want the flexibility to route traffic from different locations on the network. IPVPNs (internet protocol virtual private networks) allow companies with multiple branches to communicate across nationally located branches as if they were using a private network, virtually cutting all national call and data costs between branch locations. “This service will save many businesses significant amounts of money and help them to cost-justify investing in advanced technologies that increase their competitive advantage at local, regional and international levels,” says Dissa Jaimoukha, Jordan Telecom’s operational marketing manager. The telco hopes the new service will provide a major incentive for local businesses to move to network-based business models, investing in technology to make significant short- and long-term savings on their connectivity costs, as well as increasing time-to-action, information flow and service speeds. “Businesses can now justify increasing their investment in information processing and data networking technologies,” says Jaimoukha. “Because this is a managed service, small-to-medium-sized businesses (SMBs) can rely on managed, high availability network resources without having to worry about dedicating their resources to managing complex networks; this service also encourages governorate interconnectivity throughout the Kingdom as businesses in these areas will benefit from this service at the same low rates. They can get on with business and let us worry about managing their business communications network,” she adds.
