BBH Solutions, founded in 1989, has made significant enhancements to its converged network offerings in recent years, with the addition of personnel to their IP Communications Practice and the formation of a full Audio Visual Practice. In 2009, the company partnered with IP Trade Networks to offer their IP Trading Turret solutions, which fully integrate with enterprise-class IP PBX systems such as Cisco Unified Communications Manager. The addition of the IP Touchphone product set allows BBH Solutions to offer a robust SIP-based attendant console that integrates seamlessly into the Cisco Unified Communications Manager environment.
About IP Touchphone - IP Touchphone is business unit of IP Trade SA. IP Trade was founded in 2005 by a group of 4 senior engineers with 40 years experience in the telecom, IT and banking industries.
Amid a global transition towards IP-based converged networks integrating data, voice and video, financial institutions were left with a missing link in the trading floor. Prior to IP Trade, no trading turrets were available in the market that didn’t require the use of a proprietary TDM voice switch. After recognizing that ongoing deficiency in the trading floor offerings, IP Trade was formed to specifically address these trading communication requirements.
The IP Touchphone products, built on the IP Trade turret technology, are the most advanced SIP-based operator consoles. The IP Touchphone goal is to provide highly reliable consoles for the most critical users in the enterprise. Their appliances are compatible with SIP and the advanced features of the IP-PBX of Cisco, Avaya, and Alcatel.
