Since joining LINX in 2014 and expanding over to IXScotland and IXManchester in 2015, SureVoIP have recorded an increase of 65% in turnover on their 2014 year end. 2016 looks to be an exciting year for its existing as well as new customers and partners, as this means more funds are being re-invested for enhancements and innovation.
“We’re a small operator, with low important traffic, but have had to date, a very exciting and interesting self-funded and fully-owned journey with lots of friends made and help from others along the way.”
How did LINX help?
Gavin Henry, Managing Director of SureVoIP explains;
“This has been our best year, with LINX really bringing value via two examples I can tell you about. One proving our technical prowess, leading to a much bigger order with an existing customer. Another being the resilience and low traffic latency LINX enables, allowing us to demonstrate to a customer that they could trust us with their whole corporations VoIP traffic. The former allowed us to directly reach out to much bigger network operator NOCs and be taken seriously with our fault finding.
We wouldn’t have that level of access and respect without being a LINX member. This in turn has allowed us to expand our team and invest in becoming a true telecom operator via the SS7 network.”
SureVoIP relate much of this success to peering and will happily give technical and non-technical evidence (friendly community, NOC contacts, traceroutes, sector awareness, legal policies etc.) to anyone that wishes to learn more. They consider the network operator and peering sector, especially LINX, as a community which all depends on the co-operation of everyone in order to make the Internet work.
Gavin concluded; “LINX has really made our network one of the best out there and we have won some pretty well known names due to the quality of our phone calls and attention to detail for doing things right.”
