Bear Stearns installs Purple Voice VoIP network at Manhattan HQ

15 July 2002  |  7639 views  |  0 graphs

Bear Stearns & Co has chosen Purple Voice to supply a VoIP solution for several hundred desks at its new world headquarters in Manhattan.

The new solution will provide employees with instant access to 40 different broadcast channels, without the need for private wires, cabling infrastructure or hardware, says the company. Researchers, analysts and private client managers are being connected to the network.

Digital feeds from hoots, television, and Bear Stearns internal public address and television systems are routed from source through Purple Voice's Global Audio software, directly to the users desktops on the corporate data network in real-time. Each Global Audio user can listen to multiple channels at any time. The software also includes an audio recording and playback facility.

Brian Newsome, Bear Stearns associate director, says: "Looking at the voice options open to us we were aware of traditional hardware solutions, but through trials we have demonstrated the Purple Voice Global Audio solution to be more flexible. Not only can we now supply our employees with a greater choice of channels, we also eliminate the clutter of extra hardware on the desk."
