announced that its Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) Outbound Service is available to enterprise and carrier customers in Mexico.
Using Global Crossing's VoIP Outbound Service, customers in Mexico can place international calls via an IP interface to Global Crossing. The IP-based voice traffic is then transported across Global Crossing's private IP backbone network. This global network ensures that VoIP packets receive the highest priority and delivers consistent, predictable call quality not possible with voice services based on public Internet transport; international voice calls are delivered with minimal latency, packet loss and jitter. In addition, VoIP Outbound Service supports several access methods including IP VPN, Dedicated Internet Access and public Internet access.
"As a leading global provider of VoIP services, we're pleased to extend this service to customers in Mexico so they can benefit from the security, reliability and global network reach of Global Crossing's high-quality IP network," said Anthony Christie, Global Crossing's chief marketing officer. "We are committed to continuously expanding and enhancing our VoIP offerings to better meet the needs of customers in Mexico and around the world."
Global Crossing continues to invest in its global VoIP infrastructure and recently announced the expansion of its VoIP Outbound Service portfolio to 14 countries in Europe, Latin America and the Asia-Pacific region, for a total of 29 countries worldwide. In Latin America, the service is available in Argentina, Brazil, Chile and Mexico.
"Global Crossing's VoIP Outbound Service provides enterprises and the carriers that serve them with an ideal platform for converged IP solutions," said Adrian Gonzalez, Global Crossing's managing director in Mexico. "Our VoIP offering is an excellent alternative for companies seeking high quality international calls around the world."
Global Crossing offers a comprehensive portfolio of VoIP services that includes VoIP On-Net Plus, which received INTERNET TELEPHONY magazine's 2006 Product of the Year award. The company's IP-based solutions enable customers to converge data, video and voice on a single IP connection, while maximizing savings and reducing total cost of ownership.
The company was among the first service providers to replace legacy switches with VoIP switches in its network core, enhancing the seamless delivery of IP services. Global Crossing's VoIP platform transported more than 30 billion minutes of VoIP traffic in 2006.
