The first week of autumn 2013 was an interesting one for the SIP trunking space, with a decent amount of activity from a variety of companies. Here’s a look at some of the highlights.
First up, Dialogic hired on Robert M. Dennerlein to fill the roles of executive vice president of Finance and chief financial officer. Boasting over 25 years of experience in roles relating to finance and accounts, Dennerlein is responsible for managing the company’s market leadership and financial growth. On his part, Dennerlein said he believes Dialogic has the perfect portfolio of technologies.
Next, Telephone Magic started offering Avaya’s series of i2000 IP phones to businesses that use Avaya BCM, Communication Serverhope or legacy Nortel systems. Particularly for businesses using older supported telephony networks, this provides an easy way to upgrade to advanced IP phone functionality. For example, the top-of-the-line Avaya Nortel 2007 IP phone features a 5.7-inch touchscreen, allowing it to support multimedia presentations.
In other news, RedSky Technologies successfully completed interoperability verification testing of its E911 Manager with Cisco’s Wi-Fi infrastructure. As such, those using E911 Manager with the Cisco Mobility Service Engine are guaranteed that real-time location information of a Wi-Fi phone use is accurately passed along with 911 emergency calls, according to Youngwook Song, director of product management for RedSky.
Similarly, VoIP provider Twelve Telecom passed conformance testing with British Telecom Wholesale’s IP Exchange service this week thanks to the deployment of an ABC session border controller from FRAFOS GmbH of Germany. As such, Twelve Telecom can now offer IP Exchange to its resellers without the need for more complex interoperability testing. IP Exchange allows VoIP to be integrated with traditional voice services like fixed line and mobile networks, bypassing major capital investment.
Lastly, collaboration service provider Arkadin introduced support for the Adobe Connect 9.1 Web conferencing platform. As such, its customers have access to the complete Adobe Connect solution via three different modules — Adobe Connect for Web Meetings, Adobe Connect for Webinars and Adobe Connect for eLearning — in conjunction with Arkadin’s premium audio.
