Gamma has deployed a highly resilient interconnect to Janet, the UK’s robust network infrastructure for education and research communities.

The interconnects and associated agreement make Gamma’s SIP trunking and hosted communications services available via the Janet high speed IP Network.

The agreement comes at a time when educational establishments and local authorities are facing severe cost constraints. Deploying a SIP trunking solution – which uses the existing high availability and high bandwidth of the Janet IP network – creates the possibility for organisations to make significant savings on ongoing telephony costs.

Alan Mackie, Head of SIP Services at Gamma said, “We are delighted to establish an interconnect agreement with Janet which will allow Gamma channel partners to offer Janet connected customers a range of SIP trunking and hosted communication services.”

Alan Mackie continued, “Gamma channel partners are already successfully providing SIP services to customers in the education and local authorities sector. In addition to the cost savings, the deployment of SIP trunking and cloud based communication services can assist organisations who are looking to implement a unified communications strategy to further enhance their operational efficiency.”

Tim Kidd, Director of Operations at Janet said, “Being connected to Gamma means that additional voice services are available to our customers, which is excellent news for the Janet community. The direct interconnect that Gamma has established with the Janet network gives education and research the ability to access voice services without the need to purchase additional bandwidth – which will make a huge difference to our customers.”
