CHICAGO, Nov. 01, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Inteliquent, Inc. (Nasdaq:IQNT), a premier interconnection partner for communications service providers of all types, today announced the launch of SIP IQ at the 2016 BC Summit in Palm Springs, Calif. SIP IQ is the latest addition to Omni IQ, Inteliquent's Communications Platform as a Service (CPaaS) solution for next generation communication service providers. It provides solutions integrators, such as unified communications and customer engagement platform providers, with the ability to quickly and easily add analytical and call processing capabilities into their applications through Omni IQ's self-service web portal and API. "We are committed to providing next-gen communications providers with access to our high quality network, and our SIP IQ solution marks another step forward in this endeavor," said Brett Scorza, Inteliquent's CIO and EVP of Next Generation Services. "We worked directly with our customers to develop the SIP IQ solution as an easy-to-use platform that they can use to expand the services they provide for their customers." In addition to customer input, Inteliquent's recent acquisition of technology from Shopety, Inc., a developer of communications software and next-gen switching capabilities, played a key role in the creation of SIP IQ. Inteliquent used Shopety's technology to add the analytical and call processing capabilities. By building upon industry standard Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) trunk groups, the SIP IQ solution provides a powerful, more intelligent connection for solutions integrators with their customers. Inteliquent representatives will be onsite at the 2016 BC Summit at La Quinta Hotel and Resort to discuss how Omni IQ and SIP IQ are shaping the new communications ecosystem. Covering unified communications and collaboration applications, technologies, trends and challenges, the BC Summit provides attendees the opportunity to learn actionable best practices, strategies and tactics from leading vendors, unified communications pioneers and thought leaders.
