Global Crossing Selects Ubiquity's SIP Software

Global Crossing has chosen Ubiquity Software as a preferred supplier for Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) Application Server technology in its global IP network.

Under a multi-year, multi-million dollar agreement, Global Crossing will use Ubiquity's SIP Application Server (SIP A/S) and Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) service creation environment to develop, deploy and manage a new generation of IP-based services, and to migrate existing legacy applications to Global Crossing's global IP platform. Global Crossing currently plans to deploy several applications including VoIP Interactive Voice Response and VoIP Network Transfer.

In connection with the agreement, INUK Networks, a partner of Ubiquity, entered into a separate agreement to purchase VoIP services from Global Crossing (UK) Telecommunications Limited (GCUK). The services will be part of a triple-play offering to be launched by INUK Networks later this year, providing university students broadband Internet access, IPTV and VoIP.
