Developer of IP infrastructure and applications solutions, GENBAND, today officially announced its participation in the SIP Forum's SIPconnect-IT 2012. The event kicked off December 3 and is scheduled to carry through until tomorrow at the University of New Hampshire Interoperability Laboratory (UNH-IOL) in Durham, New Hampshire.


SIPconnect-IT 2012 offers the global telecom community the opportunity to test interoperability with the SIPconnect 1.1 specification for SIP trunking in a live network environment. GENBAND submitted its S3 Session Border Controller and A2 Communications Applications Server for testing.

“SIPconnect-IT is an ideal forum to demonstrate our industry-leading SIP Trunking capabilities on the GENBAND SBC and Application Server platforms while further cementing our commitment to the latest open standards and interoperability specifications,” B.G. Kumar, president of the Multimedia Business Unit for GENBAND, said in a statement.

GENBAND's intelligent S3 SBC is designed to simplify the deployment of SIP-based services through the secure management, interoperability and control of real-time voice and multimedia sessions at the network edge. The A2 CAS, meanwhile, is the only application server to sport fully integrated multimedia desktop and mobile applications for voice, video, conferencing, instant messaging, voice and visual messaging, presence, collaboration and mobility.

The SIP Forum's newly developed SIPconnect 1.1 Interoperability Test Plan is focused on testing interoperability between different vendor products and network elements typically involved in SIP trunking services.

As such, testing procedures this year are aiming to verify interoperability between an enterprise SIP-PBX and a service provider network SIP signaling entity.

In September, GENBAND introduced its second annual GENFuzion Developer Challenge, a program meant to expand the universe of third party applications. The company partnered with Polycom for this year's challenge to expand the program, offering incentives to participants who develop applications to enhance the capabilities of Polycom IP voice solutions.

In July, TelstraClear, a New Zealand-based telecommunications provider, selected GENBAND solutions to create an IP-based voice network.
