Compunetix, Inc. is pleased to announce that KPN has added VoIP to its CONTEX Summit-based public service conferencing offer. KPN uses CONTEX Summit collaboration media processors with both VoIP and PSTN calls on the same system without the use of external gateways. Voice calls maintain the reliability and quality of service that has become a benchmark in the industry, regardless of whether a call is VoIP or ISDN. The Compunetix VoIP solution easily passed the rigorous certification testing with the Ericsson VoIP Connect SIP trunking interface — a testament to Summit interoperability and versatility. The VoIP launch marks a significant milestone for KPN as they expand their service offering and more efficiently manage operations. KPN uses Compunetix CONTEX Summits for reservationless and event conferencing services.
“We are very satisfied with the Summit VoIP/ISDN solution,” notes Product Manager of Conferencing for KPN, Mr. Rudo Wijbrands. “It is reliable, high quality, scalable, and provides best-of-class service. Compunetix is an agile organization and provides us with innovative next-generation technology backed by excellent development and outstanding customer support teams.”
Ms. Monica Coraluppi, Compunetix Director of Business Development, EMEA, states, “We are honored to have been selected by KPN. They have ambitious plans for the future and they are on the verge of unprecedented conferencing growth and expansion. We are proud to be their partner.”
