Leader in Voice over Broadband technology targets deregulating German carrier market

Voice over Broadband (VoBB) innovator, Jetstream Communications International, is continuing its commitment to Europe with the opening of an office near Frankfurt, Germany and the appointment of a Business Development Director for the region, Erik Klaproth. This is in line with Jetstream's continuing focus on expanding into new markets.

Erik Klaproth joins Jetstream from Lucent Technologies, where he was Director of Business Development at their Worldwide Services Group since 1998. Klaproth has a total of 12 years management experience in the German telecoms market, including three years at 3Com. His role at Jetstream will be to develop strategic relationships with key carriers in Central Europe who intend to move to a next generation access infrastructure. Additional staff in Germany are likely to be appointed soon.

"The developing carrier community in Germany represents a key market for Jetstream over the coming months," said Keith Stentiford, European Managing Director of Jetstream. "Having a footprint in Germany allows us to enhance local business opportunities, and to capitalise upon other rapidly deregulating markets within the central European region."

Jetstream's range of international products will be unveiled during March's CeBIT event in Hanover. The products will support numerous European ISDN Basic Rate Interfaces (BRI), allowing local carriers to deploy bundled voice and data services over a single broadband connection.

"The effectiveness and feasibility of Jetstream's broadband network products have allowed us to build a growing list of impressive customers in the US," said Erik Klaproth. "I am tasked with pursuing new opportunities that will enable Jetstream to duplicate these successes throughout the strengthening carrier community in the heart of Europe."
