“In order for us to succeed in the competitive UK market, we needed an uninterrupted and high quality service for the prepaid calling card business model,” said Marco Signorini, CEO of Econet. “We chose Verscom Solutions’ professional engineering team and market-proven pre-paid calling card solution hosted by SIPhive, which enabled us to adapt our backend business infrastructure to the UK market.”
Verscom’s SIPhive Calling Card Service provides a comprehensive calling card service over a voice over IP (VoIP) network. The system, consisting of software and hardware, includes everything necessary to set up and operate a calling card service—from the call flow/prompts to web-based applications that configure and manage the system over the Internet.
“Cooperating with Econet is a phenomenal opportunity for mutual growth,” said Mehmet Balos, CEO of Verscom Solutions. “Powered by a best-of-breed service delivery platform, our SIPhive Calling Card Service enables Econet to offer pre-paid calling card services that leverage the full power of IP-based, next generation networks.”
Verscom’s Calling Card solution offers a cost-effective approach for delivering a next generation, feature-rich calling card service that can be rapidly deployed network wide through SIP-enabled media gateways or VoIP networks. Based on a pure IP implementation, the solution offers significant advantages over legacy, TDM-based calling card approaches.
