Inflexion Communications Corporation
Inflexion Announces Its Voice Led Convergence Strategy
LAUREL, Md., Jan. 26, 2005 (PRIMEZONE) -- For the past 100 years, communications companies have focused on voice as the key application on their networks. Inflexion's Voice Led Convergence ("VLC") strategy recognizes the enormous value of voice, but relies on video as the key driver of differentiation in its IP deployments. As Kevin Sampson, VP Marketing stated, "Vision is the greatest and most important sense -- why have companies ignored this as they create communications systems. Without video and the other unique applications that we position on our network, the IP system looks just like the traditional network." This strategy has attracted the attention of dozens of non-traditional technology companies. These companies desire to partner with Inflexion to exploit the opportunities associated with the deployment of IP networks.
