Intele-CardExpo
HULL, Canada--()--March 16, 2004--Versatel Networks today announced that IPsmarx Technology Inc., developers of VoIP telephony solutions, is a value added reseller of the Versatel EdgeIQ intelligent media gateway platform. IPsmarx develops a variety of software solutions for the hassle-free adoption of VoIP services by competitive and traditional service providers.

To help carriers make the transition to VoIP, IPsmarx designs, integrates, installs and maintains applications using next generation equipment from Versatel Networks. The Versatel EdgeIQ platform distributes media gateway and media server capabilities to the edge of the network, allowing services to be provided to PSTN and IP customers equally and minimizing the expense of backhauling traffic from one network to the other. IPsmarx is offering a turnkey billing solution for prepaid and postpaid platforms using the Versatel EdgeIQ intelligent media gateway. IPsmarx will be demonstrating its billing systems at the Intele-CardExpo in Miami, from March 16-18 at the Versatel Networks booth #524.

"The Versatel platform offers a high-end, highly-integrated solution that allows us to expand our market range with larger installments that support multiple millions of minutes," said Niko Frasheri, senior business development manager at IPsmarx Technology Inc. "We conducted extensive research and cost analysis on switch functionality and Versatel Networks offered us the most value with a reliable and affordable solution that supports our business growth."

IPsmarx selected the Versatel EdgeIQ platform because it integrates key network components into a single platform that provides extreme flexibility in developing new services. As providers of total solutions, IPsmarx saw parallel value in the functionality and cost of the Versatel platform to their own software development cost structure.

"IPsmarx is leveraging the economics of our platform and turning voice service ideas into voice service revenue," said Robert Mimeault, president and CEO of Versatel Networks. "We have eliminated costly integration issues for our development partners by using industry-standard components and developed a platform that supports the growth of the VoIP market through the development of service applications."
