The SIP space decided to see October off with a bang this year as it saw plenty of activity. Here’s a look at some of the top stories from the week.
First, Thing5 completed the deployment of its flagship VoiceCloud Solution at what was only described as a prominent hotel in the New York Metropolitan Area. This deployment provided the hotel with a completely revamped communication infrastructure, eliminating obsolete PBX, voicemail and call accounting systems. This allowed the hotel to save on costs while gaining greater reliability.
Next, Quintron Systems completed a factory compliance test of its DICES VoIP system for the United Launch Alliance (ULA). The company’s president and chief operating officer described the successful completion of the test as a “major milestone.” Indeed, this means that Quintron can perform an actual site installation for the Delta IV remote launch control center at Vandenberg AFB in California.
In other news, Indosoft unveiled the latest version of its Q-Suite PBX software offering. Available in both hosted and on-premise delivery methods, version 5.8 of Q-Suite is designed to work with the open source Asterisk platform. This allows it to scale seamlessly with a company’s growth.
Meanwhile, snom technology AG announced extended warranty periods for its entire line of IP phones, as well as its PA-1 pager. As such, all 3xx series, 7xx series and 8xx series SIP-based IP phones, as well as the PA-1, come with a two-year warranty — as long as they were purchased on or after July 1 of this year in North America, the Caribbean, Central America, South America, Australia and New Zealand. This new warranty policy is meant to provide customers with decreased cost of ownership for snom’s devices by eliminating extended warranty charges.
Lastly, TalkTalk Business became the first operator in the U.K. to deploy Telsis’ Ocean Services multimedia platform with the intent of using the platform to expand its portfolio in branded and white label value added services. The Ocean Services Platform is user-programmable and can achieve the same 99.99 percent availability of competing core network services platforms. It comes with its own Java-based programming environment, allowing individual programmers to add services that cater to their needs.
