TMCnet SIP Trunking Week in Review

By Braden Becker
Copy Editor

This week didn’t see a ton of development in SIP trunking, but so goes the ebbs and flows of an industry that’s always evolving. There was nonetheless some provoking news in the space, so let’s review.

CyberData, a manufacturer of unique equipment designs for numerous markets, developed a new IP-based intercom system called the SIP Outdoor Keypad Intercom, which caters to residential, commercial and scholastic needs in remote communications. The two-way interactional device, according to the report, includes optional shrouds for protection in harsh outdoor conditions.

CyberData followed this release with several other paging and electronic speaking products as well.

In another story, Cirpack deployed a session border controller (SBC) and softswitch by Technicolor, a landmark in the media and entertainment technology space, to connect two Italian network operators over an efficient IP network. A source of local exchange and transit switches, Cirpack adds the telecommunications industry of Italy to its already relished presence in the rest of Europe.

The company was able to unify the network operators to the highest degree of communication without hiking costs.

Closing out the week here in SIP trunking was a recap by TMC’s Rory Lidstone of SIPconnect IT 2012, a conference on the campus of the University of New Hampshire that examines the latest developments in SIP trunking and their compliance with the SIPconnect 1.1 specification. Feature attendee of the event was GENBAND, a specialist in IP infrastructure and applications, which submitted its S3 Session Border Controller and A2 Communications Applications Server.

SIPconnect’s new 1.1 standard serves to measure interoperability among newly developed SIP-based goods that may need to work with one another in the future. GENBAND also hosted its second annual contest for developers in the third-party services industry.

That’s all for SIP trunking this week, but next week could also take us by storm! Stay tuned.
