InnoMedia, a provider of innovative business voice solutions, in association with its partner Clearcable Networks, is deploying Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) Trunking and Hosted Voice services for Source Cable Limited in Hamilton, Ontario.

The service leverages InnoMedia's Enterprise SIP Gateway (ESG) products that allow service providers to provide SIP-based voice services to their enterprise customers. The service addresses issues such as SIP normalization between the enterprise IP-PBX and the operator's SIP servers, NAT Traversal, QoS Management and Network Quality Monitoring have been fully addressed by the InnoMedia ESG.

An attractive feature of the InnoMedia ESG product line for Source Cable was the ability to utilize Smart-DQoS technology to provide a guaranteed end-to-end QoS mechanism over our HFC plant, said Darryl Chandler, vice president of operations, general manager of Source Cable.

“We're finding that more and more cable operators are recognizing the benefits of our Smart-DQoS technology and using it to supply an assured quality experience to their enterprise voice customers without the need for the added network complexity of PacketCable Multimedia,” said Shailesh Patel, director, product management at InnoMedia, in a statement.

“Allied with its strengths in providing SIP normalization, NAT Traversal and Performance Monitoring, as well as an established track record for quality and reliability, the InnoMedia ESG is proving to be the ideal demarcation point for cable MSOs and broadband service providers alike in their delivery of business voice services to their customers," Patel added.

The service allows the delivery of high-quality SIP Trunking and Hosted PBX services that would normally be run only on fiber or active Ethernet networks by large and medium-sized enterprises down to small businesses by leveraging the broad reach and cost-effectiveness of our DOCSIS-based coaxial cable access network, Chandler added.

The InnoMedia ESBC product family of ESGs offers several connection models ranging from high-speed Ethernet connectivity both to the IP-PBX and to the operator's core network, through PRI-enabled models that allow service providers to provide SIP trunks to end users with traditional PBXs using a PRI connection, and to devices having a DOCSIS 2.0 or DOCSIS 3.0 interface that enable cable MSO's to deliver business voice solutions in a very integrated form factor.

Each unit provides four business-friendly FXS ports, a bridge port for high-speed data, a router port with RIPv2 broadcast capability for enabling public IP addresses at the enterprise, as well as an internal battery with full telemetry for power backup, the company said.

InnoMedia also supplies a comprehensive suite of VoIP products including cable modem integrated eMTAs, Ethernet-based ATAs, IP PBXs, IP Phones, and a complementary Element Management System (EMS) for provisioning and managing the entire portfolio of InnoMedia products.

Recently InnoMedia announced that Buckeye TeleSystem is using InnoMedia for its SIP trunking service for Enterprises. Buckeye TeleSystem is using InnoMedia's ESBC 9328-4B to offer Back-to-Back User Agent (B2BUA) for reliable SIP Trunk services to customers who have different IPPBXs.
