25th March 2004 – Redwood Technologies, the leading provider of Value Added Network Services equipment, is pleased to announce the arrival of its latest industry award, for optimising carriers’ networks. Presented by the highly regarded US magazine Communications Solutions, the Product Of The Year Award highlights the strength of Redwood’s Value Added Services solutions, running on its multi-media DNX® (Digital Network Xchange™) platform.
Selected by some of the world’s biggest carriers for services such as mass calling, prepaid billing, VoIP, unified communications and conferencing, the DNX® platform supports a wide range of signalling protocols including SS7, E1, T1, SIP, H.323 and V5.2, enabling integration with almost any IP and telephone network.
Key deployments for carriers in 2003 included the provision of one of Europe’s largest mass calling systems at KPN Telecom NV in The Netherlands. Redwood also provided Africa’s largest prepaid billing system to Nigeria’s incumbent telco, Nigerian Telecommunications Ltd. Aimed at combating bad debt and collection issues, this project will enable Nitel to make further infrastructure investments from the additional revenues generated.
The DNX® platform aims to reduce both capital and operational expenditures, as well as being reliable and resilient - requirements more significant than ever for carriers operating on tight budgets.
Rich Tehrani, president of TMC and group editor-in-chief of Communications Solutions said: “Redwood is clearly deserving of leadership status in the carrier networks services sector of the telecommunications industry. We’re proud to reward their hard work and innovation with a Product of the Year Award for 2003.”
Tehrani added, “The Product of the Year awards exemplify the best that this industry has to offer. Redwood has demonstrated a commitment to quality, and a commitment to the further development of the communications industry through its products. Redwood deserves this great honour, and I look forward to seeing other innovative solutions from them as they continue to contribute to the future of communications.”
