The award seeks to identify a company that has made a significant impact upon the channel either through the development of sales with traditional lines and minutes or transitioning to new IP based services. Node4 have always pushed IP-based voice products, becoming early adopters of the technology in 2005 when they launched their own hosted IP telephony solution hostTALK. Following on from its success, they were able to further develop their voice product portfolio and become a key provider of SIP trunking services with their SIPlink platform.
Through the development of SIPlink, Node4 have been able to offer customers a variety of benefits providing a significant impact upon the channel, including; a portal for ordering, managing and monitoring their services; allocation of UK geographic, non geographic and international numbers; number porting, regardless of geographic location; fax to email; and automatic external diverts in the case of unavailability of the PBX. Node4's Senior Technical Consultant Richard Buxton comments; "One of Node4's strengths continues to be the ability to offer complete end to end solutions. We have the ability to provide everything from the CPE, connectivity, through to PSTN termination of calls, meaning we are in full control of each aspect of the service".
