Voxbone announced that it is expanding efforts to help
service providers and enterprises in North America extend the reach of their
international networking capabilities rapidly and cost-effectively.
Voxbone announced it is bolstering its presence in North
America with the addition of Hugh Goldstein, an experienced expert in the VoIP
and telecommunications services industry, as Vice President for Business
Development for North America.
The only operator of its kind with self-owned licenses
and number ranges, Voxbone has experienced rapid growth
since 2005. It already serves more than 300 service providers in the United
States, and its global network footprint includes PoPs in Los Angeles and New
Customers worldwide include Internet and Internet
telephony service providers, long-distance operators, call center operators,
conferencing operators, and hosted PBX and IVR providers such as Skype, Jajah,
IDT, Global Crossing, Voxeo and Phone.com.
Voxbone is glad to have Goldstein leading its efforts in
the crucial North America services market, especially in the U.S., where the
company sees strong operator demand for direct inward dialing (DID) numbers,
adoption of VoIP services is well under way by consumers and businesses, and a
deregulated marketplace allows Voxbone customers to thrive,” said Rod Ullens,
“Hugh has a keen grasp of how our customers in the
U.S. and Canada can take full advantage of Voxbone services and support them as
they develop innovative global IP communications services and
applications,” Ullens added.
Prior to assuming his current role, Goldstein led
business development for Voxbone’s iNum initiative to create a global numbering
system for IP communications and worked as an independent consultant. His
industry experience also includes positions with XConnect, Arbinet, VocalTec,
Surf&Call Solutions and Belgacom North America.
“Telephone numbers are universal identifiers for
enterprise, small-business and consumer VoIP, and they will continue to play a
key role in interconnecting the next generation of all-IP and cloud-based voice
and video services,” said Goldstein.
“I’m excited to work with Voxbone’s valued customers
to ensure our services and market strategy anticipate their needs and to
develop new business and technology relationships in North America,”
As further indicators of Voxbone’s intent to boost its
presence in North America, the company recently incorporated its U.S.
subsidiary and beefed up the capabilities of its network operations center in
Los Angeles. Voxbone also offers all-encompassing coverage of area codes and
local exchanges in the continental United States.
