NxGen Networks Inc. Announces Strategic Partnership with Touch America – Brief Article

NxGen Networks and TouchAmerica announced a strategic partnership that will allow both companies to compete more effectively in the origination and termination of global voice traffic by combining leading-edge switching and optical transport.

Through its high-speed, fiber optic network, Touch America will provide NxGen Networks the ability to carry traffic for all of its customers, both to and from domestic and international locations. In return, Touch America will be able to reduce its termination costs by utilizing NxGen’s state-of-the-art gateway switches. This relationship also includes the opportunity for Touch America to provide additional broadband capacity to NxGen for both voice transport and IP requirements.

“Together, we will offer customers the best of each companies’ voice technologies for speed, security, reliability, and national reach between networks, thus allowing enhanced offerings to all of our customers,” said Perry Cole, senior vice president of sales for Touch America. “Combining the strengths of a leading bandwidth provider with a leading integrator of voice and data switched services increases the ability for each company to economically and rapidly scale their networks to meet expanding customer needs in the most timely manner possible.”
