TeliaSonera Denmark introduces business IP telephony

TeliaSonera Denmark has long supplied IP-VPN solutions to Danish companies for simple and secure data and speech transmission. The time has now come to also offer IP telephony to the Danish business sector. This will be achieved through strategic collaboration with the network company, Axcess, which has supplied business IP solutions for the last five years.

The new TeliaSonera Denmark and Axcess collaboration represents a powerful alternative in the Danish IP telephony market, which continues to experience explosive growth. More than one third of major Danish companies are considering changing to IP telephony and can now receive complete IP telephony solutions from TeliaSonera Denmark.

“We are undergoing a development where traditional fixed telephony is on the decline. We are currently experiencing substantial demand for IP telephony, so it is important to be able to offer an attractive and competitive alternative. Our collaboration with Axcess affords us an advantageous platform, as TeliaSonera Denmarks’ IP network coupled with Axcess’ IP telephony experience and expertise give us an excellent chance of playing a decisive role in the market,” explains managing director, Peter Bredgaard, Telia Networks.

“For TeliaSonera Denmark and Axcess, IP telephony is naturally all about cheaper internal calls and administration, as well as integrating the company’s IT and telecommunication solutions. We have entered into a collaboration with TeliaSonera Denmark so we can provide complete solutions that give companies the full benefit of IP telephony. We can do this thanks to the experience and expertise we have gleaned as one of Cisco’s preferred Danish working partners and full-service suppliers of Cisco IP telephony solutions,” adds managing director, Stig Abildsø, Axcess A/S.

The foundation of the Telia Axcess IP telephony offering is Telia DataNet, Telia’s national backbone comprising an 8,000 km fibre network to which customers are directly linked. A 100% MPLS-based network, Telia DataNet provides the fastest and most stable transfer of data, IP telephony and video conferencing.
