Billion manufactures a broad range of ADSL routers ideal for the home, SOHO and SMB sectors - which include the ability to provide failover to the PSTN in the event of Broadband and/or power failure.

Scott Dobson, Managing Director of VCOMM, states: With the recent Ofcom directive stating that all VoIP resellers should provide some sort of access to 999 Emergency Services, even in the event of service failure - Billions VoIP routers not only provides this, but delivers a cost effective, highly flexible solution.

Julian De Selincourt, Billions Sales and Marketing Director added: Were delighted to have signed VCOMM as a strategic partner as they are so focused on, and well respected within, the VoIP sector. This alliance provides a great margin opportunity for resellers selling into the home, SOHO and SMB sector.

We are the only manufacturer to supply the failover lifeline feature as standard in our BiPAC routers a great safety feature that offers extra peace of mind for users.

VCOMM will be supplying the following Billion VOIP router models: BiPAC 7401VP, BiPAC 7401VGP, BiPAC 7404VGP and BiPAC 7404VGO.

It gives users full control over the traffic of any type of data. It ensures latency-sensitive and bandwidth-consuming applications like P2P sharing programs, VoIP calls, gaming packets or customer information can move through the router at lightning speed, even under heavy load.
