Cablevision Optimum Voice SIP Trunking and Cisco UC300 Series Certified Interoperable

Cablevision Systems Corporation, a media and telecommunications company, today had its Optimum Voice SIP trunking service certified with Cisco Unified Communications 300 Series for small businesses. This makes the Cisco UC320 part of an exclusive group of Cisco products to receive interoperability certification for Optimum Voice SIP trunking after the UC500 series PBXs.


The Cisco 300 Series is aimed at small businesses looking to setup an IP -PBX system while avoiding the costs associated with alternatives like an analog gateway or traditional T-1 solution. The Cisco UC320 is designed to support organizations with up to 24 employees and boasts business-class calling and messaging as well as support for a wide range of Cisco SPA Series IP phones.

Optimum Voice, meanwhile, supplies VoIP access and network-based telephony features to pre-certified IP-PBXs, which allows for simplified configuration and reduced equipment costs. Delivered through a converged voice and data network with round-the-clock dedicated customer support and field service professionals, Optimum Voice offers improved voice quality by providing a direct IP interface to the customer's network.

“Optimum Voice SIP Trunking provides an affordable, easy-to-manage communications system for small businesses,” said Joseph DeLotto, vice president of business product management for Cablevision. “With the certification of the Cisco UC320, we are extending availability of our next generation service to even our smallest customers that may require 10 to 20 telephone numbers but only need as little as four concurrent calling sessions.”

Optimum Voice features support for up to 100 direct inward dial (DID) telephone numbers, immediate 'alternate call routing,' flexibility in terms of service adjustments, unlimited calling and advanced features for a flat monthly fee, and call admission control.

Recently, Cablevision reported its financial result for the third quarter of 2012. Net revenue was up 1.2 percent to $1.685 billion compared to the same period in 2011, while consolidated operating income dropped 19.3 percent to hit $219.8 million.

In June, the company launched an online portal for its Optimum Business customers, allowing for the management of all communications services.
