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.

Ingate Systems, along with The SIP School, will offer a new line of training and certification courses, focusing on the Ingate Enterprise Session Border Controller and the Ingate SIParator Enterprise Session Border Controller. The courses will not only focus on generic topics around SIP, but delve into specific topics and products, as well as a full certification in managing and configuring the SIParator line.


In another story, Flashphoner, a provider of Flash-to-SIP gateways, has formed an alliance with SoliCall, a provider of audio quality solutions. The firms will offer a solution that improves audio quality in Flash-based systems.

It was also reported that BT Southern Cone, the regional operator of BT’s Latin America region, recently signed an agreement with GENBAND, a developer of IP infrastructure and application solutions, for the migration of its voice infrastructure throughout Argentina to a new all IP-enabled network. GENBAND will provide its solution to BT Southern Cone for the migration process.

TMCnet also reported that MegaPath Corporation, a provider of managed data, voice, security and hosted IT services in North America, has become a SIP Trunking provider with Kerio Operator.

Just as well, TMCnet’s Tracey E. Schelmetic reported that VoIP and unified communications (UC) technology are projected to see growth of their own. According to Infonetics Research, many VoIP and UC segments are in the middle of an impressive growth spurt that is only expected to continue. Beyond traditional operators and service providers, the firm is seeing a growing number of PBX/UC vendors, enterprise agents, system integrators and resellers expanding into hosted UC offerings. Infonetics predicts that a cumulative $377 billion will be spent on business and residential/SOHO VoIP services over the five years from 2012 to 2016.

This growth will be driven primarily by SIP trunking and hosted VoIP/UC services.

Lastly, Compunetix’s CONTEX Summit now supports AT Conference’s new VoIP collaboration solution. AT Conference selected Compunetix after a rigorous search and evaluation of media processors and Multipoint Control Units.
