By SIP Trunking Report Content Producer

This week in SIP trunking news, Turkcell has announced that it will implement a dual carrier infrastructure through its subsidiary KKTcell. Turkcell, prominent communications and Technology Company, will implement the new dual carrier in the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus, delivering a faster internet speed to its 35 million subscribers.

The new innovation makes Turkcell one of the first to implement a dual carrier infrastructure in the world. It will come equipped with 3G/HSDPA technology and will run at 43.2 Mbps speed.

"As the communication leader, we are responsible for bringing in the most advanced technologies to the island. This new technology will particularly be felt while downloading files and mobile internet users on 3G networks will be able to see speeds of up to 42 Megabit/second. We are proud to introduce dual carrier technology, which makes a difference globally, bringing further convenience to our customers," noted Ilkan Bulbul, marketing assistant and general manager at Turkcell.

In other SIP trunking news, MegaPath Corporation announced a new offering for customers, Enterprise Trunking. The new feature is designed to reduce costs by consolidating to a single server, whether it be a business with multiple locations or a single-location business looking for a standalone SIP trunking solution.

"When compared to PRI and POTS lines, SIP Trunking is a reliable and cost-effective option for large enterprises and small businesses that want to reduce their telephone costs," said Dan Foster, president of Business Markets at MegaPath, in a statement. "By adding these solutions to our SIP Trunking offerings, we are making it even easier for customers to do business with MegaPath by providing the option to bring your own broadband connection or purchase SIP Trunking with one of our access solutions."

In other MegaPath news, it was announced that NEC Corporation of America has chosen MegaPath as the recipient of its NEC Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) Trunking Interoperability certification. Getting the certification is a big deal for both companies, as they will partner up and MegaPath’s SIP trunking service will now be interoperable with NEC’s UNIVERGE SV8100 and SL1100.

“As SIP trunking continues to grow in popularity, it will be important for companies to select solutions that can seamlessly integrate with their existing voice infrastructure,” said John Scarborough, vice president of products and services, MegaPath. “MegaPath works with our partners, like NEC, to ensure we deliver reliable, high-quality solutions that meet our customers’ voice needs without exhausting their budgets.”
