Open VoIP Peering Honored with Second Award This Year

SAN JOSE, CALIF. (January 4, 2011) – VirtualPBX, the inventor and leading supplier of hosted business phone services, announced today that Technology Marketing Corporation (TMC), has named Virtual PBX’s Open VoIP Peering as a recipient of the 2010 NGN Leadership Award presented by its publication NGN Magazine.

Virtual PBX’s Open VoIP Peering is an open systems approach to the next generation of VoIP-based PBX services. Open VoIP Peering allows small and growing businesses to take advantage of the robustness and features of traditional hosted PBX services while leveraging the cost-effectiveness of VoIP technology. Users can choose which option they like on a call-by-call basis to meet their individual needs. Furthermore, there is no additional cost from Virtual PBX for accessing soft phones, as is common with competitors who charge extra for proprietary digital-enabled phone extensions.

“This recognition of Virtual PBX’s Open VoIP Peering service is a testament to the company’s continued commitment to providing customers with innovative solutions that meet their demanding business needs,” said Paul Hammond, CEO of Virtual PBX. “Being selected as an NGN Leadership Award winner is truly a mark of distinction and further validates Virtual PBX’s leadership in the VoIP market.”

The second-annual NGN Leadership Award has recognized the growth, evolution and distinction between the applications and services designed for next-generation networks and the enabling technologies that make them possible. Virtual PBX was recognized in the Services category.

“Virtual PBX was recognized for its exceptional work in advancing NGN services and technologies. Open VoIP Peering has proven it’s exceptional and its innovation has contributed to the transformation of the industry,” stated Rich Tehrani, CEO, TMC. “Congratulations to the entire team at Virtual PBX, and I look forward to more innovations in the coming year.”

The 2010 NGN Leadership Award winners can be found in the May/June 2010 issue of NGN Magazine.
