Bicom Systems' have sent us a press release detailing their new service provider:

LONDON (October 27, 2004) - Bicom Systems announced today that on October 26, 2004 it has introduced its first service provider, Magrathea Telecommunications Ltd, into its unique offering of service providers lists. The Service Providers List is to list all service providers whose services will be setup automatically in PBXware and SWITCHware products. Services' auto configuration will encourage an even wider range of audience to use VOIP and IP PBX technologies.

"Magrathea is the first Service Provider that can be set-up automatically just by "point and click," said Stephen Wingfield, Bicom Systems' President, "This step is significant because it demonstrates that the established players in the Industry wish to promote their services actively through PBXware and SWITCHware."

"PBXware and SWITCHware solutions from Bicom Systems will reduce the support issues for Service Providers such as ourselves and further promote our services. It would appear that now almost anyone can have a full Telephony Solution for a few hundred pounds." said Linus Surguy, Magrathea's Technical Director.

Bicom Systems expects to soon announce the introduction of other Service Providers. This will allow integrators and in turn End-Users an instant choice of competitive services from around the world such as Trunk routing, termination, DID, origination.
