As a partner of TelcoSwitch, resellers can access a product suite including CallSwitch, SimSwitch, NetSwitch and SipSwitch. These solutions are designed for SMEs, enterprises and governments worldwide, supporting mobile, connectivity or hosted telephony communications within a “cost-effective framework”, said the supplier.
