TelTel, a provider of SIP-based global Internet telephony services, has announced that it is enabling Digitrad and TelePlus to rapidly offer VoIP service over TelTel’s PsipTN (Public SIP Telephony Network). TelePlus will offer VoIP via the PsipTN as a result of a relationship with Digitrad, who is a TelTel SVNO (SIP Virtual Network Operator) partner. The addition of VoIP service greatly enhances TelePlus’s service offering for its core product, Vocalyz(TM).
The Vocalyz product is a specialized telephone service for the mainstream international traveler that bundles reliable, inexpensive international long distance with a 24/7 live private assistant who functions as a translator, concierge or emergency dispatch in the user’s native language. TelePlus is enhancing Vocalyz by providing its customers a branded TelTel softphone over the PsipTN and access to TelTel’s suite of services, including presence, Instant Voice, Instant Text and call forwarding.
“TelTel and Digitrad are helping TelePlus extend the lifecycle for Vocalyze,” said Jim Gibson, Vice President of Business Development for TelePlus Group. “Each company provides and integral piece and derives benefit from the relationship, it’s a win-win for all.”
Vocalyz and its new services are tied together through Digitrad’s integrated GSM billing and IVR (Interactive Vocal Response) platform, Stand4U. So Vocalyz users can continue to use the wireless local number, Teleplus services and the leftover account balances from the travel cell phone through the branded TelTel softphone. This extends the value of Vocalyz beyond the travel experience.
“Extending our relationship with TelTel to the TelePlus Group and its customers reflects our confidence in the PsipTN network,” said Micha Benoliel, President and CEO of Digitrad. “Tying together TelePlus’s value-added services and TelTel’s softphone through our Stand4u integrated billing platform creates the opportunity for Digitrad, TelePlus and TelTel alike to enjoy new revenue streams. This deployment also demonstrates how easy it is for our Stand4u platform to operate across various telecom environments including GSM and SIP.”
“It is very gratifying to see successful business relationships grow and expand through our SVNO program,” said Jack Chang, Chief Operating Officer of TelTel. “Digitrad identified an opportunity to quickly integrate the TelTel services to improve the offerings of one of its customers. This clearly demonstrates the versatility and flexibility of the PsipTN’s ability to deploy global services across different media to produce additional value for users.”
TelTel provides global Internet telephony services on the TelTel managed, SIP-based PsipTN(TM), capable of carrying voice, media, contents, and a variety of hosted services while providing interoperability with numerous IP end points.
