NuVox Certifies NEC's Communications Server with VoxIP SIP Trunking Solution

By SIP Trunking Report Contributor

NuVox, a communications provider across the Southeast and Midwestern United States, announced today that its VoxIP SIP (Session Initiation Protocol) Trunking product is now compatible with NEC’s UNIVERGE SV8100 and UX5000 IP communications servers.

NuVox said that NEC passed the company’s strict certification program, in order to facilitate   customers by enabling them to quickly and easily combine NEC hardware and NuVox’s SIP service. In addition, this will also enable customers to test and certify the interoperability between VoxIP SIP and NEC’s UNIVERGE IP communication systems.
NEC offers a complete portfolio for unified communications, wireless, voice, data and managed services, as well as systems integration and application development. Its UNIVERGE SV8100 Communications Server is an IP telephony solution ideal for SMBs that wish to compete and grow their businesses over time. Whereas, the UNIVERGE UX5000 is a comprehensive integrated solution ideal for smaller businesses and is designed to meet the unique challenges of both business telephony applications and VoIP.
According to NuVox, its VoxIP SIP delivers voice and data services by efficiently utilizing bandwidth. It supports IP communications from user’s IPPBX (and handset) to the company’s cloud, thereby providing a foundation for multimedia communications.
In addition, when VoxIP SIP is complemented with VoxNET Gold, which is NuVox’s MPLS solution, it also allows customers to streamline communications.
Sid Earley, VP of marketing for NuVox, said that VoxIP SIP leverages cutting edge IP technology, which helps in transforming the way businesses communicate in the future.”
“In today’s economy, the business case for VoxIP SIP Trunking from NuVox has never been clearer,” said Jay Krauser, General Manager, Core Solutions and Engineering, NEC. “By combining the potential cost savings of VoxIP with the productivity benefits of our unified communications applications and UNIVERGE SMB platforms, NEC and NuVox should be on every mid-sized company’s list for consideration.”
Apart from NEC certification, NuVox’s VoxIP SIP is compatible with other premise-based IP-PBX systems including Cisco, Avaya, Ingate, and Digium. The company announced more hardware certifications coming later this year.
The VoxIP SIP Trunking solution along with NEC’s communication servers is now available to business customers in Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina and Tennessee.
NuVox said that it delivers services via its MPLS-based wide area private IP network.
