VINA's Multiservice Xchange has enabled us to take a lead on our competitors, and deliver the benefits of service convergence today," said Barry Mowbray, RSL COM's managing director of the UK and Benelux. "The Multiservice Xchange isn't just a scaled down version of an enterprise product. It was designed from the ground up with carrier class levels of performance and reliability in mind. And what's more, as our customer's needs grow, the MX will scale beautifully enabling us to provide an even greater breadth of services to our customers."
"Universally, small and medium-sized businesses want to compete in the emerging Internet economy, but they need the right products and the right service provider to get there," said Steve Bauman, president and CEO, VINA Technologies. "By establishing relationships with progressive carriers like RSL COM UK, VINA is working to help level the playing field for small and medium-sized businesses, making speed, access and service integration affordable to their organizations."
