IP Telecom, the Dublin based VoIP provider, has completed the installation of point of presence (PoP) architecture into the BT data centre in City West Business Park.

The €500,000 investment will enhance the service offering from IP Telecom, which was founded in 2010. It provides telephony solutions to companies in Ireland and internationally via its own VoIP (Voice Over Internet Protocol) network.

IP Telecom’s setup provides telecommunications using cloud-based technology rather than traditional line rental and equipment, which can be up to 70% cheaper than the older telephony system. The firm’s clients include multinationals, SMEs and semi-state government bodies.

IP Telecom said that it chose the BT Ireland Data Centre for this POP due to the large choice of carriers that were available to interconnect with, including INEX, the national internet exchange.

Brian Chamberlain, CTO of IP Telecom, commented: “Our relationship with BT Data Centres over the past 18 months has been fantastic and has really helped us to grow our infrastructure in response to the huge demand we are seeing from the Irish business community in moving their communications to Voice over IP.”

Peter Evans, MD of Wholesale, BT Ireland, added: “We demonstrated to IP Telecom how we continue to invest heavily in our global network of 48 data centres across the world in order to bring flexible solutions to market.”
