TechTerra Communications, Inc. has introduced TerraCall(TM), a new SIP based long distance IP Telephony service for calling landlines and cell phones worldwide. The service includes a free, easily installed software telephone (softphone). A distinguishing feature of the service is the inclusion of Xten's X-Tunnels Firewall Traversal solution, which ensures the security of the PC behind a firewall while calls are made. The softphone, designed for broadband customers, uses Xten's SIP (Session Initiation Protocol) solution, winner of the TMC Labs Innovation Award for 2003.
TechTerra chose ComWest's industry-leading switching and billing platform for integration with Xten's technology to provide customers with competitive rates without compromising quality, flexibility or security. With rates starting as low as 2.9 cents/minute, TerraCall offers first class service that includes no monthly charges or hidden fees and quick and easy sign-up.
Together with Xten, TechTerra is combining industry-leading technologies and deploying them with the core values of the company to provide the ultimate customer experience. When asked about Xten's new tunneling technology, Christian Behier, TechTerra's president, said, "It allows our service to traverse through virtually all firewalls, which is a necessity in today's digital world, while maintaining Internet security for our customers without compromise. Xten not only delivered a world-class solution, they also customized it to fit our customers' needs, aligning themselves with us to provide a first rate customer experience."
Erik Lagerway, co-founder, president and COO of Xten Networks, said, "We believe that TechTerra is very well positioned in the market and could easily become the benchmark in terms of VoIP service offerings and quality of service. Xten is proud to have TechTerra as a customer and partner."
