Global telecommunication firm VueTel has announced it that plans to continue its $1.2 million investment to expand its wholesale voice and data services to help U.S. companies better connect with African countries.
The group aims to provide high quality safe services as well as anti-fraud systems based on the principles of artificial intelligence and machine learning, applied to the international management of voice and data communications.
With the activation of a PoP in New York, after the main hubs of London, Paris, Marseille, Milan, and Palermo, VueTel is consolidating more and more as an international benchmark for the wholesale market providing connection for voice and data to countries like Tunisia, Egypt, Algeria, Libya, Benin, Togo, Niger, Mali, Ghana, Nigeria, Burkina Faso and Angola.
To drive this new strategy, it has appointed Todd Baron as Chief Operating Officer of its U.S. operating company, VueTel USA. The firm expands its New Jersey office with a primary focus of connecting the U.S. and Africa. With over 20 years’ experience in the telecommunications industry, Todd Baron boasts an extensive background in leading carrier and wholesale sales teams focusing on international products and services.
He joins VueTel USA from IDT Corporation where he was Vice President of International Wholesale Carrier Sales. In his new role, Baron will lead VueTel USA’s product offering, including international Internet Transit Services (IP Transit), International dedicated lines (IPLC), devoted Ethernet circuits (EthLink) and virtual private networks (IP VPN) as well as international voice transit services.
“Todd joins us at a strategic time when we are gaining traction building out our U.S. presence as a major provider of international wholesale and voice data services,” said Giovanni Ottati, CEO and President of VueTel. “Todd’s broad experience in North America, Europe and the Middle East along with his history of achieving remarkable growth, is well-suited to leading our growing operations and our commitment to increasing secure and high-quality wholesale voice data connections to Africa.”
