TMCnet SIP Trunking Week in Review

By Rory Lidstone
SIP Trunking Report Contributing Writer

After a restful weekend from the extra hour gained from the end of Daylight Savings Time, the SIP trunking sector was filled with noteworthy events this week. Here are some of the highlights as reported by TMCnet.

First, Entisys became a Mitel authorizedPARTNER, enabling the delivery of UCC solutions to Entisys customers in California. In order to become a partner, Entisys had to meet a series of stringent requirements that support selling Mitel products in the marketplace.

“Entisys Solutions has the depth of expertise with virtualization technology that give customers the flexible solutions needed to simplify their communications infrastructure and amplify their business value,” said Philip Keenan, Mitel's executive vice-president, U.S. partner business, sales and service.

Next, Australian telecommunications provider MyNetFone Limited signed an agreement to purchase the client base and assets of inbound call specialist CallStream. The acquisition is said to be a good fit for MyNetFone as it will help expand the company's small business customer base.

MyNetFone is to pay upwards of $600,000 for CallStream, but the added business of the acquisition is expected to add that same amount to the company's pre-tax profit within a year. This amount will be paid out to CallStream in two installments within 60 days of the agreement going through.

911 Enable this week introduced E911 emergency solutions designed specifically to support Microsoft Lync 2013. The company will support the E911 functionality of Lync as well as new E911 features introduced in Lync 2013, helping users address E911 regulations and secure employees from risk.

"Lync 2013 includes new E911 capabilities which reflect the ways that organizations are using their communications networks today," said Lev Deich, director of 911 Enable. "911 Enable provides critical support for these innovations, and we're proud to offer the industry's first E911 solutions that support Lync 2013."

In other news, Sangoma Technologies launched Answering Machine Detection (AMD) for the Asterisk open source framework for communications applications. Asterisk commonly powers IP PBX systems, VoIP gateways and conference servers.

Sangoma AMD for Asterisk is proven to deliver AMD with 95 percent accuracy in less than 300ms, and nearly 98 percent in under two seconds. It also features backwards compatibility with Asterisk 1.4 at a price point appropriate for the open source market.

Lastly, SIPRoutes updated its Advanced SIP Routing service. This latest release enables customers to access a suite of business intelligence reporting tools to track quality, cost, performance, trouble tickets and a number of other quality statistics. These enhancements extend the ability to see select customized reports.

The SIPRoutes solution addresses issues typical of traditional wholesale SIP providers with its SaaS approach. By moving the service to a cloud-based routing application, the solution eliminates the management of complicated routing algorithms, multiple formats, billing policies and contracts.

That wraps up this week in review! Be sure to head over to the SIP Trunking Channel for more news in this sector.
