CyberTel Takes Telecom Provisioning Software to Europe

[London, ENGLAND] Unified communications software developer CyberTel, Inc. announced Wednesday it is taking its PURE-PLAY-IP telecom architecture to the U.K. and other markets in Europe.

CyberTel has opened an office in London and has appointed Gregory Lee, formerly marketing director of Filter (UK) Ltd., as head of U.K. operations.

The market for telecoms provisioning software -- software that enables carriers to provision value added services to their subscribers -- is booming in the U.K. where it even outpaces the U.S. market. CyberTel is keen to get a slice of the action.

"After having established a presence in Japan and Asia, we are very excited to now start addressing opportunities in the European market, which we expect will be one of the largest IP Telecom markets in the future," said CyberTel President and Chief Executive Mario Dal Canto.

CyberTel's PURE-PLAY-IP software environment enables carriers, ASPs, ISPs and large companies to provision services such as e-mail, fax, phone, voicemail and pager, regardless of network type or consumer appliance. Users can cross from one service to another, for example by responding to e-mail from a phone or replying to voicemail from an e-mail account.

Gregory Lee said that CyberTel is currently pursuing partnerships with leading British and European telecoms carriers to help them deliver unified communications services to millions of subscribers.

"Because our PURE-PLAY-IP architecture will work on any platform and with any landline or wireless device, the possibilities for application in the U.K. and throughout Europe are virtually limitless," said Lee.

Founded in 1998 and based in New Jersey, CyberTel is privately funded.
