net.com (NYSE: NWK) announced today that Viva GSM de Nuevatel S.A., the first GSM operator in Bolivia, will deliver voice over Internet protocol (VoIP) to its customers in the six largest cities in Bolivia using net.com's SHOUT media gateway platform. Nuevatel is also delivering prepaid phone card services to its customers using the IVR capabilities in SHOUT. In the near future, Nuevatel will also release enhanced voice services using SHOUT, including unified messaging, CENTREX, and web phone.
Nuevatel will use the integrated voice gateway and signaling support of the SHOUT platform to interconnect SS7/C7 signaling with leased T1/E1 circuits to connect all of its locations throughout Bolivia.
SHOUT combines the functionality of a media gateway, call control component, SS7/C7 signaling point, H.323/SIP inter-working device and media server in a single, compact chassis. SHOUT supports a wide range of voice and call routing features; conformance to the latest VoIP signaling and call control standards guarantees interoperability within multivendor VoIP deployments.
According to Jorge Terrazas, chief technical officer of Nuevatel, "The fully integrated SHOUT platform is a big benefit to Nuevatel as it enables us to deliver a wide variety of services in an easy to use platform, and also enables us to reduce the number of stand-alone elements in the network."
John Guisto, net.com's vice president of Latin America sales, commented, "We are always pleased when a carrier opts to leverage multiple capabilities of the SHOUT platform right away. We look forward to supporting Nuevatel as it grows its business and expands its service capabilities."
net.com is exhibiting the fully-integrated capabilities of the SHOUT platform for VoIP this week at Spring VON, being held at the San Jose Convention Center in San Jose, California from Monday, March 7 until Thursday, March 10. Visit net.com in booth 1131.
