TMCnet SIP Trunking News Digest

The CEO of Ingate, Karl Erik Stahl, delivered a proposal to the SIP trunking community recently. In an article reprinted from Internet Telephony magazine, Stahl suggested the development of Internet+, which would extend UC federation between all users as an obvious extension of the telephony service.

While today’s SIP trunks connect only voice telephony, the Internet+ model calls for SIP connectivity along IP paths so that UC functions like voice, video, presence and IM were all capable over the SIP standard.

In other SIP trunking news, SPIRIT DSP announced that its TeamSpirit Voice&Video Engine Mobile now supports the new version of Rich Communication Suite enhanced (RCS-e 5.0). The IP Multimedia Subsystem, which could create Stahl’s nirvana in which any service is available via any media over the telephone wireline system, uses RCS-e as a framework for creating mobile clients.

Also, analyst Sandra Gustavsen reported that Aastra’s MX-ONE, a pre-configured turnkey server solution that installs onto an HP or Dell platform, saw a 30 percent increase in sales during 2011. The MX-ONE is highly scalable, supporting 15,000 SIP users per server or 500,000 total users in a multi-server configuration. MX-ONE 5.0 has been upgraded to include new resiliency options within a VMWare virtualized environment, which makes it ideal for cloud-based hosted environments or data centers.

Just recently, BroadSoft showcased an upgrade to its SIP trunking offering. The upgrade will allow users to add UC and mobile applications to the SIP trunk. In addition to enhancing their SIP trunks, end users will enhance their average revenue per user. The mobile workforce can now use these services on their tablets and smartphones.

Additionally, GL Communications launched their MAPS UMTS IuPS Interface Emulator. Among its many features, the Emulator supports customization of call flows and message templates using Script Editor and Message Editor, supports scripted call generation and automates call reception. The Emulator can also simulate error conditions by adding impairments to messages.

Our final piece of news brings us back to Ingate, which issued a full line of software only enterprise SBCs. With these E-SBCs, companies will be able to SIP communications and UC beyond the protected enterprise network. The software can handle as few as five simultaneous calls and as many as 10,000 depending on the hardware. The E-SBC can be installed on the customer’s own servers, integrated with IP PBXs or media gateways, or used as a virtual application.
