Concessionária vai vender plataforma IP da Cisco: Cisco says it will soon be able to announce having convinced a major Tupi telco — it won’t say which one yet — to offer its voice-over-IP products.
The announcement is supposed to take place at a Cisco Networkers event in São Paulo in late May, reports Convergência Digital.
NET just talked us into taking its digital telephone service as a part of its triple-play residential service by offering it for free for one year. My wife, who remembers waiting for almost a year and paying four months’ salary for her first residential telephone line, was not keen on making the switch, so we will continue with the two phone lines until we have evaluated the new service.
Number portability would be nice.
A Cisco promete quebrar um grande paradigma da telefonia IP no Brasil no final de maio. Durante o Cisco Networkers, evento que a fabricante promove, em São Paulo, entre os dias 28 e 30 do próximo mês, está previsto o anúncio da aliança com uma concessionária de telefonia para a venda de mais esta facilidade.
What I just said. Cisco promises to disrupt a major paradigm for IP telephony in Brazil in late May … is expected to announce an alliance with a telephone concession-holder to offer [VoIP as an] additional service.
Expected by whom?
Rodrigo Uchoa, diretor de desenvolvimento de novos negócios da Cisco, não revela a identidade do novo parceiro, mas antecipa o quê grande parte dos fornecedores de telefonia IP vem tentando: a adesão das concessionárias.
