Fremont, CA / London (PRWEB) May 24, 2005
U4EA Technologies, the leading multi-service network embedded software provider, today announced that the company is preparing for rapid growth by strengthening its management team and expanding its facilities in Fremont, California. The expansion is due to growing customer and partner demand for its integrated access devices (IAD) that enable service providers to offer carrier-class voice over IP (VoIP) services to enterprise customers. Infonetics, an international market research and consulting firm covering the data networking and telecommunications industries, estimates that North American voice over IP service revenue topped $1.3 billion in 2004, and is expected to soar 1,431% to $19.9 billion by 2009.
U4EA has appointed Perry Teevens as its vice president of sales and business development and Doug Cross as its vice president of hardware engineering. U4EA has also recently recruited a number of engineers to its Fremont facility, to meet growth for its products that support VoIP in multi-service networks.

ÂOur investment and expansion in personnel and facilities in California signifies our continued commitment to meet the significant and growing requirement for VoIP service provider solutions.Â
