Inteliquent is the new name of the merged Neutral Tandem and Tinet, and the company will continue to offer voice, IP transit, Ethernet and hosted-service solutions to major carriers, service providers and content-management firms.
Neutral Tandem purchased Italy’s Tinet SpA in October 2010 as a way of “leverag(ing) our core competencies, expand our global footprint, accelerate our Ethernet initiatives and move beyond voice into data solutions," said Rian Wren, president and CEO at the time. "We are pleased to have completed this acquisition and are excited to begin our efforts to capitalize on the new opportunities created by the transaction."
Today’s announcement “reflects the evolution of Neutral Tandem to a full-scale network solutions provider, offering intelligent networking to solve challenging interconnection and interoperability issues on a global scale,” the new brand notes. “With an advanced MPLS network that is highly interconnected to carriers around the world, Inteliquent provides voice, IP Transit, Ethernet and hosted service solutions to major carriers, service providers, and content management firms based in over 80 countries and six continents.”
Comments Edward Evans, CEO at Inteliquent, “The name, ’Inteliquent’ scales with our expanded product set and aligns well with our positioning as a global multi-services company that provides intelligent solutions to complex problems in the industry.”
