TMCnet SIP Trunking Week in Review

This past week, the news makers in the SIP trunking space were TouchTone Communications and Telesphere. While TouchTone Communications unveiled a new Dynamic PRI solution, Telesphere expanded its network of private SIP trunking services with the inclusion of points of presence in Atlanta and Chicago.


TMCnet contributor Tanya Palta reported that voice and data services provider TouchTone Communications has assembled IP service into a single platform via its new Dynamic PRI solution. The company has merged Internet access, local and long-distance on a single, dynamically allocated circuit. As per this report, the new IP platform has been engineered to intelligently allocate bandwidth built on call volume or Internet usage guaranteeing optimum use of available bandwidth at all times.

According to TouchTone's vice president of sales and marketing Ken McCormack, the Dynamic PRIs are smart and economical because they allow customers to better manage and consolidate their voice and data over one network. “These circuits are based on bandwidth rather than on the limitation of a fixed number of lines or channels. When phones are idle, additional bandwidth is available for data applications and Internet browsing, stated McCormack.

Likewise, TMCnet contributor Carolyn J Dawson reported that Telesphere has expanded its network of private SIP trunking services, giving medium-size multi-site businesses across the country an affordable and simplified solution to shift to IP PBX’s and cloud and hosted communication services.

In a company release, Telesphere CTO Sanjay Srinivasan stated, “With Telesphere’s nationwide managed network, businesses now can use private SIP trunking to extend cloud-based services such as video, fixed-mobile convergence and unified communications to all of their facilities. By adding native IP interconnection to IP PBXes, Telesphere continues to stay ahead of the competition when it comes to anticipating and meeting businesses' evolving,” reported Dawson.

In other news, based on data from research firm Infonetics Research, TMCnet contributor Allison Boccamazzo reported that PBX market is recovering from a small but not-so-soft hit as enterprises across the board remain cautious on spending on telephony equipment.

Despite the declining trend, Infonetics assures that IP-PBX sales are still up in North America by five percent from the previous quarter and up 6.4 percent from a year-ago second quarter. However, Latin America continues to be a small beacon of light as economies in the region experience growth and new business creation, reported Boccamazzo.
