It was a busy week in the SIP Trunking sector. Here are some of the major stories from TMCnet.
Monica Gleberman writes that enterprises are looking at communications in a completely different way and want to take full advantage of advances in technology and virtualized services. Companies not only want to use their IP-PBX (News - Alert) systems, but communicate with others outside of the enterprise using an SIP trunking service. For instance, Qoncert, a gold-certified partner with Cisco, incorporated IntelePeer (News - Alert) CoreCloud SIP trunking services with its current system.
In another story, TMCnet reported that SIP trunking solutions help empower employees to work on-the-go while remaining just as productive as they would be in an office. SIP trunking also offers a Session Border Controller which can help to protect a company’s voice network from poor quality and other associated problems. InGate President Steve Johnson (News - Alert) told TMCnet about the ways in which he has seen SIP trunking grow over recent months and some of its benefits.
In another story, VoIP Supply LLC – a supplier of VoIP equipment and complete solutions – has added Revolabs’ FLX wireless VoIP conferencing systems to its portfolio. Wireless VoIP conference phone from Revolabs FLX will let VoIP Supply provide more flexibility for audio and video project collaboration, webinars, Skype (News - Alert) and distance learning, the company says.
In another report, TMCnet says Acme Packet recently announced the launch of its Unified Communications (News - Alert) (UC) vendor-neutral session management solutions, which comes with support for Microsoft Lync. These new solutions integrate legacy multivendor enterprise communications networks with Microsoft Lync.
And GENBAND plans to expand into enterprise communications to provide organizations with mobile solutions for advanced Unified Communications (UC) and SIP Trunking, TMCnet reported. The company already has approximately 250 million IP communications ports, and wants to provide large-scale enterprise networks to an IP-based UC infrastructure.
