PSIVoice is an Internet Protocol-based service capable of transmitting voice and data over the PSINet network.
With operations in 42 countries around the world, Wang will provide services to complement PSINet's existing network operations, engineering, field services, and administration in the United States, Canada, Europe and Asia. No financial specifics were disclosed.
"The alliance combines the expertise of two industry leaders while offering a standardized global support infrastructure for PSIVoice," said George Blake, vice president of Wang's enterprise transport group.
PSINet already has aligned with Ascend Communications to implement the PSIVoice technology, which is currently in its first phase of demonstration.
Industry analysts predict IP technology to be the future of the Internet. Nearly one-half of companies interviewed by Forrester Research expect to experiment with Internet voice and Internet fax by the end of 1999.
