Global cloud networking provider GTT (NYSE: GTT) has unveiled its Cloud Connected PSTN service for Cisco Webex Calling. Cloud Connected PSTN provides access to Cloud Webex Calling Service with SIP Trunking from GTT. It is delivered with end-to-end assurance on GTT’s global Tier 1 IP backbone.
“GTT’s voice offering, built on its global SIP trunking platform, is well suited to enable enterprises with a seamless and flexible telephony solution with global reach as a new Cloud Connected PSTN (CCP) provider for Cisco Webex Calling,” said Diane Myers, chief analyst, enterprise collaboration research at Omdia.
GTT offers enterprises PSTN access for Cisco Webex calling and collaboration on a single global platform by integrating diverse communication capabilities. GTT’s full suite of enterprise communications services support PSTN calling, global termination, DIDs and emergency services. With usage-based calling and a single rate card model, the solution would both be cost effective and easy to manage.
“GTT is among the very few providers able to deliver a global, enterprise-grade SIP Trunking solution for Cisco Webex Calling, because we connect multiple redundant voice session border controllers around the world across our own Tier 1 IP backbone,” said Don MacNeil, COO at GTT. “This ensures better and assured performance for enterprises moving from legacy equipment to Cisco Webex Calling. It’s an ideal solution for businesses seeking the simplicity of sourcing their global voice requirements from a single, high-quality partner.”
The announcement follows the news that GTT’s Chief Financial Officer Steven Berns stepped down from his role as CFO. The company has appointed Donna Granato, previously Senior Vice President of Finance, as interim Chief Financial Officer.
Mr. Berns has agreed to remain available as a resource for the company through January 31, 2021.
“We greatly appreciate Steven’s partnership, expertise, leadership and many contributions navigating GTT through this critical time,” said Ernie Ortega, Interim CEO of GTT. “We thank Steven for his dedication to GTT and his support through the transition. I wish him the best in his future endeavors.”
“We are very fortunate and pleased to have Donna provide her expertise and leadership in the role of interim Chief Financial Officer,” added Mr. Ortega. “Having worked with Mr. Berns for many years, Donna has been an integral member of GTT’s finance team since her arrival in June 2020. Her appointment will ensure that we continue to provide exceptional service to our valued customers, employees, vendors and investors.”
Ms. Granato will report to Mr. Ortega. “We are confident that Donna’s leadership will be invaluable as we work towards closing the sale of GTT’s infrastructure division to I Squared Capital,” added Mr. Ortega. “We remain in ongoing advanced discussions regarding incremental financing to satisfy our liquidity needs.”
