Technology companies leading the way at Aberdeen Energy & Innovation Parks

Independent Internet Service Provider Converged Communication Solutions, along with SureVoIP, Scotland’s leading Internet Telephony provider, have been appointed as the preferred suppliers of Internet and communication services to the Aberdeen Energy and Innovation Parks.

The contract, which is potentially worth over £350,000, will see Converged supply Internet services to the parks, with SureVoIP providing IP telephony (VoIP).

The provision of services will bring advanced technology to the eighty-plus businesses located within the parks, which are held in joint venture by Buccleuch Property and Scottish Enterprise. The offering will be launched across the parks as a new ‘serviced’ office provision to all park tenants.

"We are absolutely delighted to have secured this significant contract with the Aberdeen Energy & Innovation Parks and look forward to assisting businesses within the parks to access leading technology for internet and communications,” said Neil Christie, Technical Director for Converged. “We have worked with SureVoIP on a number of projects and look forward to delivering this contract in partnership with them."

"Pre-existing high capacity fibre exists between park tenants and Converged’s backbone network, and consequently we can provide very high bandwidth, very quickly, to new tenants, or those with changing requirements" added Neil.

Business tenants will be able to gain high speed internet access via this fibre at a fraction of the cost of traditional methods. The result is highly reliable bandwidth suitable for carrying a wide range of business critical applications.

SureVoIP managing director Gavin Henry said: "SureVoIP, in partnership with Converged, are delighted to be selected to provide hosted VoIP telephony services to businesses working in and operating from the Aberdeen Energy & Innovation Parks."

"The contract highlights the parks, their owners and managers as forward-thinking organisations, using modern telecommunications to help develop the Scottish economy and allow it to flourish by working directly with service providers."

SureVoIP, regulated by Ofcom, is a member of the Internet Telephony Service Providers Association (ITSPA). The company is also the holder of an ITSPA quality mark accreditation.

Converged Communication Solutions is a leading Aberdeen-based Internet Service Provider (ISP) and IT support company, offering an extensive portfolio of inter-site networking solutions.

NetDev, a leading telco apps developer, has announced SureVoIP as its first customer for DRUM, a new web meeting solution with integrated audio conferencing. SureVoIP is a UK-based provider of Internet telephony which targets the enterprise and SME market.

DRUM was launched in October 2012 as a value-added service to help service providers address the enterprise and small business market. DRUM audio conferencing will be hosted from SureVoIP's network, enabling SureVoIP to extend the range of communications services it offers to its customers, while maintaining control over the service to ensure its customers receive the best possible call quality.

Through DRUM, SureVoIP will be able to address the growing conferencing and web meeting market. According to AMI Research, the combined audio and web conferencing market will grow year on year to reach $2.7 billion by 2014. Despite robust growth in the overall market, service providers have been relatively slow to deliver their own conferencing and web meeting services.

SureVoIP also has the option to deliver DRUM's web meeting application to its customers, in addition to the audio conferencing service. DRUM web meetings is a central repository for every meeting a user attends,allowing participants to create meetings, present and share documents, take notes and assign tasks in the browser. It is an HTML5 application which means users can access and use it from the browser without software downloads or plugins. DRUM also has WebRTC conference calling capability which allows users to join their conference call directly from the web, with no need for an access number or PIN. DRUM web meetings is hosted by NetDev and integrates with audio through simple provisioning settings.

"Audio conferencing is a very natural addition to our services, which means an even fuller range of options for our customers," commented Gavin Henry, Managing Director at SureVoIP. "With DRUM we can extend audio conferencing to a complete web meeting and collaboration solution and WebRTC enabled conference calls can really add value to enterprise meetings and collaboration. By hosting DRUM audio conferencing we maintain ownership of the voice quality and the billing relationship, so we know we can continue to deliver the quality of service that our customers expect from us."

"DRUM delivers audio conferencing as a feature of a much wider web meeting and collaboration service. Users can join and control their conference calls directly from the browser or the fixed/mobile phone", said John Logsdon, CEO and Founder of NetDev. "It adds value to enterprise communications and enables service providers to build revenues from non-subscribers who are invited to the meeting or conference."
