Coyote Network Systems in Westlake Village said it has obtained a Japanese Class II carrier license and point of presence, which enable the company's subsidiaries to originate and terminate telecommunications traffic in that country.
"As part of our corporate strategy we are targeting focused telecom market segments, such as international long distance, to and through strategic markets like Japan," said Daniel W. Latham, Coyote president and chief operating officer. He added that he expects the Japanese licensing will lower costs and improve efficiency for his firm's subsidiaries, INET and AGT, and their customers.
INET Interactive Network System markets international long-distance services, primarily to Japanese- and French-speaking people in the United States. American Gateway Telecom (AGT) provides wholesale international long-distance services.
