SaskTel Corp. has announced plans to deploy uReach Technology Inc.’s messaging platform as the cornerstone of a new messaging architecture.

The deployment will offer the foundation for voice mail offerings to SaskTel’s wireline and wireless customers, and, by later this year, will support expanded messaging offerings for IP customers as well as wireless/wireline convergent customers.

The Holmdel, N.Y.-based company will be demonstrating its platform at Voice on the Net (VON) Canada 2005 conference in Toronto, which starts tomorrow.

Like most carriers, SaskTel has a massive investment in existing hardware and network assets that deliver multiple revenues streams across a fiber-optic, fully-digital network.

SaskTel’s network supports a sizable high-speed Internet business with Digital Subscriber Line (DSL) service available to over 75% of Saskatchewan’s population.

“It supports the most extensive analog and digital wireless service in the province and offers security alarm and other related monitoring services,” uReach said in a release.

“By 2004, however, SaskTel needed a growth path from its legacy voice messaging application to a platform with expanded messaging features and support for IP that its current messaging infrastructure did not offer.”
