, the business class VOIP provider announced stunning growth in the adoption of VOIP among small and medium-sized businesses. In just over the first two months of 2006, the company has more than doubled its entire 2005 call volume. To date, Junction Networks has handled over 4 million calls by customers using its SIP and IAX2 trunking service for business. Junction Networks’ trunking service was made available in January, 2005.
Today, over 1000 business customers rely on Junction Networks for their critical VOIP communication needs. "It took us nearly a year to reach 2 million calls but just over two months to achieve another 2 million," stated CEO Michael Oeth. "There is no question; our service offering is compelling to small and medium sized businesses looking for IP communications services based on SIP and other open protocols."
Junction Networks provides business class VOIP service to companies without the hassle presented by traditional telephone providers or residential-focused VOIP providers. With any SIP or IAX2 compliant PBX, application or user agent, customers can connect to Junction Networks with as little as $10 to start. There are no minimums or commitments and customers can grow into as many simultaneous calls as needed with no expensive surcharges or channel fees.
Company executives credit their commitment to open standards as the key to success. "The breadth and depth of customers signing up and using our service is remarkable," states Robert Wolpov, Director of Marketing. "From small businesses with a couple of lines to call centers with hundreds of operators, our customers share one thing in common, a commitment to open SIP and IAX2 standards-based platforms."
This commitment to open standards has allowed Junction Networks to reach customers using a wide array of user agents. Customers are connecting with popular user agents including Cisco Call Manager, Asterisk, Fonality, Switchvox, Zultys, Asterisk@Home, Polycom, Sipura, and many more.
