New Global Telecom
, a U.S. based provider of wholesale hosted IP Telephony Communication solutions will reportedly provide VoIP services and unified communications to American Broadband
customers on a private label basis.
ABi provides organizations with a broadband and Ethernet aggregation solution that allows them to engineer large scale, high speed, flexible networks, Thomas K. Grundman, ABi's CEO, said. These customers want to more fully utilize these networks with complementary applications, and prefer a single source for network design, install, billing and around the clock customer support and service.
Grundman said that NGT's VoIP solution is the first of many new services and applications requested by their clients. He said this deal will aid ABi to effectively bundle transport and these hosted communication solutions. The resulting combination from this effort will offer significant value to both existing and future clients.
John Guillaume, senior vice president of sales and marketing at NGT said this deal will benefit ABi. The company can use NGT's managed, secure VoIP services and unified communications to deliver large, multi-location businesses on-net calling or four-digit dialing, unified voicemail and streamlined call routing from site to site.
More and more companies now want to lower their networking and telecommunications expenses, and Guillaume observed that one-stop shopping at ABi will help ensure their communications are right-sized and optimized from the onset.
New Global Telecom (News
) was in news earlier this year when it certified the Cisco SPA500 series of IP phones for use in conjunction with NGT’s fully managed VoIP services. Both companies are jointly
marketing small business VoIP services and equipment to partners and end user businesses.
The company also signed
a deal under which NationsLine is private labeling NGT VoIP services and unified communications to its customers.
