INDUSTRY| July 19, 2012, 1:25 p.m.
Pervasip Corp. subsidiary VoX Communications, a cloud-based voice and video communications solutions, apps and services provider, announced today that it is partnering with G3 South Africa to facilitate sales of hardware and apps in Africa.
"Since February, we have been researching, designing and developing product extensions that include tablets and handsets, which fit well into our VoIP and video ecosystem. G3 South Africa and VoX plan to sell these new units with the VoX VoIP app pre-installed," said Mark Richards CIO of VoX Communications.
"G3 South Africa was established with the purpose of providing VoX a foothold in Africa to drive sales volume through the large telecom and mobile carriers throughout the continent. We are also making arrangements to ship our VoIP server cluster to South Africa, so that our app can be available to over 6 million people via a mobile wallet business. Having the technology in Africa will allow us to keep both voice and video media in-country and provide the most efficient routing of packets possible."
Mobile VoIP users are estimated to be 300 million by 2013 and Africa is an emerging market in this space. VoX intends to package its network capabilities with cutting edge hardware to build a diverse global business.
