WESTFORD, Mass., April 23, 2008 - Sonus Networks, Inc. (Nasdaq: SONS), a leading supplier of IP communications infrastructure solutions, today announced that Convergia Networks, a world-class provider of voice, data, and Internet services for residential, business and wholesale customers, with offices throughout North America, South America and Europe, has selected Sonus solutions as the new backbone of its international network.
Convergia selected Sonus to differentiate its service offerings, while ensuring the highest level of performance for its global customer base. Convergia will deploy Sonus' Access solution, including its recently released IMX 2.0 Multimedia Applications Platform, to deliver its ever expanding customer base with advanced residential and enterprise voice services. Sonus' solution will enable Convergia to deliver on its vision of quality residential and business service without geographic boundaries.
"Our customers demand uncompromised network performance. For Convergia, customer satisfaction is paramount to our success. At the same time, we needed to differentiate our service with unique features and functionality that the IMX 2.0 can deliver," said Alejandro Bitar, president at Convergia Networks.
