Verizon Business Receives 2007 Product of the Year Award From ’Communications Solutions’


Verizon Business IP Trunking Honored for Outstanding Innovation

BASKING RIDGE, N.J. - Technology Marketing Corporation’s (TMC) Web site, Communications Solutions (, covering advances in hardware, software and services, has named Verizon Business’ IP Trunking a 2007 Product of the Year.

Trunks are communications lines that connect switching systems. Verizon IP Trunking services use Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) signaling to interoperate with either an IP or time division multiplex (TDM) private branch exchange (PBX) or key system. This versatility gives a customer an easy way to replace traditional TDM trunk lines provided through the public switched telephone network.

“Verizon Business continues to enhance and expand its VoIP portfolio to make it easier for customers to enjoy the benefits of IP-based communications,” said Nancy Gofus, Verizon Business senior vice president and chief marketing officer. “This award showcases our commitment to advancing technology for customers who are adopting VoIP and other IP-based services to more efficiently and cost-effectively manage communications across their enterprise.”

Rich Tehrani, TMC president and group editor-in-chief of Communications Solutions, said, “Verizon Business has been recognized with a 2007 Product of the Year Award for their excellence in the advancement of VoIP communications. Verizon Business has proven they are committed to quality and excellence in solutions that benefit the customer experience as well as ROI for the companies that use them. I am pleased to honor their hard work and accomplishments and look forward to more innovative solutions from them in the future.”

The eighth annual Communications Solutions Product of the Year Award recognizes the vision, leadership and attention to detail that are the hallmarks of the prestigious award. The most innovative products and services brought to market in 2007 were selected as recipients of this year’s Communications Solutions Product of the Year Award for their groundbreaking achievement.

Verizon Business IP Trunking has a nationwide footprint covering more than 350 metropolitan markets in the United States. In addition, the local service supports local-to-global coverage in France, Germany, Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg and the United Kingdom, with plans to expand further expand in Europe (Italy, Spain, Sweden and Ireland in 2008).

In December 2007, Verizon Business introduced several major enhancements for its IP Trunking customers, with on-demand networking via Burstable Enterprise Shared Trunks (BEST), additional IP PBX platform support, a new path to VoIP through the company’s Ethernet-to-Private IP-access option, and automated rerouting of calls to maintain business continuity.
