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.

Digerati, a cloud-communications provider, recently updated its SIP trunking service. Customers can now connect to its cloud platform and route their telephone traffic as VoIP. Digerati provides hosted IP/PBX, VoIP transport, SIP trunking, data storage and customized VoIP solutions for specialized applications.


In another story, TMCnet’s Jacqueline Lee reported that the SIP Forum has named Spencer Dawkins as its new technical director. Dawkins is senior standards manager at Huawei Technologies in Plano, Texas. Dawkins has worked on TCP/IP standards since 1989, and has been part of the Internet Engineering Task Force since 1996.

Prior to Huawei, Dawkins was a software developer, manager, systems architect and product planner at Nortel, Fujitsu, Cyneta Networks and Inet/Tektronix.

TMCnet’s Sujata Garud reported how small businesses tend to improve profits by cutting all non-essential costs. The start-up businesses can see quality support, and take advantage of powerful small business phone systems and VoIP technology at economical prices. It can be done with TelcoDepot’s offerings on phone systems and VoIP solutions for small offices. TelcoDepot.com is a supplier of business telephone systems, business VoIP services, VoIP phones, phone headset equipment, video surveillance systems, voice and data cabling solutions, conference phone solutions and Microsoft Response Point Systems.

SIP-based softphone developer, CounterPath, was featured in another piece as it offers a new version of its Bria mobile softphone app, designed for Android OS tablets. The Bria Android Tablet Edition lets businesses extend PBX features to select Android tablets, including employee-owned devices.

GL rounds out this week’s trunking news, having released its new Voice and Data Testing Solutions with upgraded mobile applications. The Voice and Data Testing Solutions include: VQuad and VQuad-Probe, Mobile Device Controller and WebViewer.
