IP Retail Advances with Assistance of Engineer’s Consulting Group (ECG)


Valdosta, GA -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/28/2006 -- IP Retail selected ECG for assistance with deploying a Broadsoft system in conjunction with their personal user friendly front end design entitled “Freester™.”

Based in Boca Raton, FL, IP Retail, Inc. develops software for the deployment of the Broadworks VoIP application platform. Due to ECG’s thorough understanding of Telecommunications and Next Generation VoIP switching architectures, IP Retail chose the expert engineering team to help create and complete this project.

“When IP Retail, Inc. was looking for assistance with configuring a new BroadSoft system, ECG was on-site at the New York City location to assist with the install, set-up, and initial activation of the entire network,” said Martin Toha, President of IP Retail.

ECG would produce and execute the project plan that entailed all items necessary to execute the deployment.

“(ECG’s) Engineers assisted with electrical, hardware, security, and communication needs to ensure that the system was reliable and stable. The ECG staff made themselves readily available, and despite a transportation crisis, were able to deliver their work on-time and on-schedule,” continues Martin Toha, President of IP Retail.

IP Retail was deploying SIP- based IP Centrex, residential services based on the Broadsoft Broadworks platform, and using the Telefinity SIP termination service as their PSTN gateway. ECG would provide reliable SIP- based VoIP service, Broadsoft IP Centrex features, and a Broadsoft platform for migrating IP Retail’s initial customer,

ECG engineered, installed and configured IP Retail’s core IP network, along with Acme Packet SBC’s and Cisco networking elements. The engineering and deployment was accomplished in under 45 days, as opposed to the average 60-90 days.

“ECG continues to assist with support of the network and is a valued asset to IP Retail's business,” concludes Matin Toha, President of IP Retail.
