Acme Packet Faces Security Challenges

By SIP Trunking Report Contributor

Acme Packet, a provider of delivery networks, will be working with MTN Cyprus on a new offshoot of services.

One of the most well-known telecommunications distributors in the area, MTN Cyprus will be utilizing Acme Packet’s online session controllers to better deliver its services to customers. The trunking services in question are important to business customers accustomed to Acme’s way of doing things, and will be an excellent additional product in the MTN line of services. 

Business customers will, with the help of Acme and MTN, be able to connect between SIP service providers, making business transactions easier on the whole. Intracom Telecom, an international vendor of telecommunication services whose integration capabilities are widely considered to be among the best in the business, will be involved in the deal as well, providing consultation about the integration of the new services with the old.

Additional work will be done on the companies’ support services while working toward a new solution on the matter. 

The solution will allow MTN to speed up the time it takes transactions to go through, and will also be able to deliver extremely secure trunking services. Turnaround of business dealings will speed up exponentially, which is one of the main attractions of customers to this kind of service.

The risk of security issue and other network problems is reduced with this kind of software, which is always something that business owners will be in favor of. 

Based on the estimated success of this partnership, this is surely not the last of these two companies working together. Acme’s knowledge of SIP systems paired with Cyprus’s customer base will most likely combine for a beneficial deal for both parties going forward, and an even better setup for their clients.
