Dialogic, babyTEL Provide FoIP on SIP Trunks with End-to-end Support

By Jaclyn Allard SIP Trunking Report Web Editor

Dialogic, a provider of communications technologies powering advanced networks, and babyTEL, a provider of Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) solutions, revealed the completion of interoperability testing between Dialogic Brooktrout SR140 Fax Software and babyTEL's open Internet Fax over IP (FoIP) SIP Trunking service. Enterprise fax server customers, rapidly moving to FoIP technology, can now be provided with reliable fax transmission over the Internet on SIP trunks with end-to-end support for the T.38 FoIP protocol.

With Dialogic and babyTEL's successful interoperability, Brooktrout SR140 Fax Software with babyTel's SIP Trunking service can be used to extend the efficiency of FoIP to the fax transmission. In a statement, Franz-Josef Eberle, vice president and general manager of Enterprise Market Group for Dialogic, said, "At Dialogic, we are committed to supporting this need through proven interoperability with industry-leading SIP trunking services, and we are particularly pleased to add babyTEL to our tested FoIP interoperability list."

Users can gain significant savings through lower call rates with babyTEL's FoIP optimized network and end-to-end T.38 support, avoiding the cost of dedicated data links and regular telephone Trunking. Only additional bandwidth for expansion is required.

In a statement Stephen Dorsey, CEO of babyTEL Inc., expressed his excitement, "This announcement marks an important chapter in FoIP, as it allows the customer to connect to our network through the readily available open Internet, rather than through private data links."

Recently, Technology Marketing Corporation (TMC), a global integrated media company, and Dialogic have announced a partnership to deliver a Webinar event, “Part 2: Interconnecting HD Voice and Video: Options Galore” on April 14, 2010 at 2:00 PM ET/11:00 AM PT. 

This complimentary Webinar, sponsored by Dialogic, will examine how organizations can make the switch to HD voice.

Service providers and carriers of all shapes and sizes badly want to move from a PSTN-based system to an all-IP world with SIP interconnections, enabling seamless end-to-end HD voice calling, video calling, and other powerful business and consumer applications. However, it is early days for higher-level SIP interoperability, with a few upstart service providers offering it, others talking about building their own IP peering fabric and Sprint offering the promise of it in the future.
