WVT Communications Upgrades Network with Sonus Equipment

By Nathesh SIP Trunking Report Contributor

WVT Communications, a full-service telecommunications company, said that along with its business division, USA Datanet added class 5 services by upgrading its network with equipment supplied by Sonus Networks, a dealer in IP networking.

The new deployment includes a GSX9000 High-Density Media Gateway, additional ASX Telephony Application Servers, and a redundant Insight Customer Portal.

WVT asserted that it provides business-class hosted IP voice and data services as well as Internet and traditional local and long-distance services. Its division USA Datanet is focused on delivering communications services that enable companies to meet their business priority to increase productivity, improve efficiency and reduce costs.

According to Sonus, the GSX9000 High-Density Media Gateway is the industry's most trusted TDM/IP media switch that features a scalable, blade server architecture that allows networks to add more TDM or IP processing capacity to the GSX9000 chassis as their network grows and evolves.

Sonus’ ASX Telephony Application Server includes a robust suite of residential and business features that can be delivered to both IP and non-IP endpoints for a consistent user experience among the widest number of subscribers. It has all the features that make it suitable for a Class 5 Feature Call Server for MGCP, H.248 and SIP clients.

The Sonus Insight Customer Portal (ICP) is a simple-to-use, Web-based customer care system that allows residential subscribers to modify their calling features and personal settings from a secure online connection. 

WVT Communications asserted that it will be able to move up to class 5 and enhance current services by upgrading its Sonus GSX/NBS and PSX products. It also can expand its residential, wholesale and business offerings as well as replace its end-of-life Pactolus platform. The newly upgraded network will only make WVT stronger in a highly competitive market, said the company.

"This upgrade demonstrates that long-term Sonus customers like WVT Communications are confident in turning to us when the time comes to grow their business," said David Tipping, vice president of marketing and product management, Sonus Networks. "Our integrated product line can meet their needs and help them be more competitive."
