Verizon Business said that it has added session initiation protocol (SIP) Gateway Outbound Service to its wholesale voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP).

 
This latest service launch is expected to provide wholesale customers quicker service turn-up, simplified network configuration, expanded calling options and increased flexibility when ordering.
 
According to company officials, SIP Gateway Outbound Service enables “faster initiation of service, faster changes in capacity and faster long-distance call processing.”
 
Along with traditional numbering format, this VoIP product also allows calls to originate from Internet formats URI and URL. Additionally, SIP Gateway Service Outbound adds the security mechanism Remote Party ID as an accepted signaling configuration to the P-asserted ID signaling configuration,
 
“As the VoIP market becomes more mature, we're broadening and strengthening our VoIP product offerings,” said Jim Tyrrell, vice president of voice product management at Verizon.
 
He also said that the SIP Gateway Outbound Service is another step toward enabling company’s wholesale VoIP customers to benefit from increased productivity, efficiency and convenience.
 
The company also announced the launch of a new, managed wireless local area network (MWLAN) service that enables businesses and government entities take full advantage of wireless technology.
 
Verizon Managed Wireless LAN (MWLAN) service, including Cisco Unified Wireless Network technology, enables customers to extend the reach of LANs within offices, schools and factories, and across corporate and college campuses.
 
Also, workers have access to networks, applications, data and the Internet while away from their desks, according to company officials.
 
“Our enhanced managed wireless LAN portfolio enables companies to leverage wireless technology while helping manage the day-to-day complexities often associated with wireless LANs,” said Nancy Gofus, senior vice president and chief marketing officer at Verizon Business.
 
Verizon Business, a unit of Verizon Communications, operates public IP network. The company integrates IP communications and information technology (IT) products and services to deliver enterprise solutions including managed services, security, mobility, collaboration and professional services.
 
In addition to SIP Gateway Outbound Service, Verizon Business SIP Gateway Services are available in three other configurations. These three configurations are Inbound Complete, Two-Way Local and Two-Way Complete.
