IP4B signs agreement with Bell Canada to extend and strengthen its IP telephony network

IP4B, a full-service world-class provider of IP telephony and unified communications, announced today that it has reached an agreement with Bell Canada Wholesale Services to transport its Canadian IP telephony services. This deal enables IP4B to carry its clients’ voice communications over Canada’s most important telecommunication backbone.

The deal henceforth empowers IP4B to offer a completely redundant SIP network to all its clients. The Bell Canada network becomes the main IP4B backbone across Canada. It replaces alternative tier two networks previously used but that were unable to provide the highest level of robustness sought.

This SIP network redundancy adds to the multiple measures already put in place by IP4B. Among these are the geographically redundant data centers implemented 10 years ago, backup Internet connectivity over LTE launched in 2016, and, more recently, top-of-the-line defense against DDOS Internet attacks.

“With this new agreement, IP4B positions itself among the best business IP communications companies in Canada. The redundant telecommunications network is a critical link that enables us to provide a world-class experience to our customers”, says Mr. Steve Foisy, President of IP4B.

“During the past year, the network of one of our previous providers failed more than once. We wanted to ensure that our customers would not have to live through this ever again. With Bell as our Canadian carrier, we now offer what very few telecommunications provider can provide credibility, robustness and redundancy”, adds Mr. Foisy.

Over the last few years, IP4B invested over $2M for its IP telecommunications telco grade platform based on BroadSoft. In February 2018, Cisco announced that it had completed the purchase of BroadSoft.
