TMCnet SIP Trunking Week in Review


By Ed Silverstein
SIP Trunking Report Contributor

It was a busy week in the SIP Trunking sector. Here are some of the major stories from TMCnet.

TMCnet’s Beecher Tuttle reports that the enterprise session border controller market jumped some 60 percent last year. The increase was fueled by strong adoption rates of SIP trunking technology, according to Infonetics Research. The market for SIP trunks increased 88 percent from 2010 to 2011, the report adds. In addition, the ESBC market will see revenues of $527 million by 2016 as enterprises recognize the need for security, interoperability and network border traversal.


In another story, Ethernet solutions are becoming a favored ultra-fast access option – as they support VoIP, IP access and intranet connectivity, MPLS core services and other applications. Windstream Corp. recently announced the introduction of a Carrier Switched Ethernet to cater to demand from carriers for higher bandwidth and Ethernet. According to the company, carrier customers can provide multi-location data solutions to their customers. Also, setting up a network interconnect now becomes cheaper.

It was also reported that XO Communications’ SIP trunking services are available from authorized Toshiba dealers in the United States. Toshiba America Information Systems and XO Communications have announced interoperability certification of Toshiba's family of IPedge IP business communication systems with XO's SIP trunking services.

In still another story, the HomePNA Alliance, which develops home networking specifications and also certifies and promotes member products, has welcomed Italy's Telecom Italia as its newest member. The alliance, which spans the networking, telecommunications, hardware, software and consumer electronics industries, has increased its membership to 23 firms.

And Celtis, which makes guestroom phones, has partnered with Siemens Enterprise Communications to complete the interoperability testing of the Teledex and TeleMatrix SIP endpoints. Under the new partnership promoted by Siemens, any company can integrate their services with the Teledex brand E Series SIP corded and cordless phones, thanks to new technology and available endpoint platforms.
