It seems that Thanksgiving did little to slow down the SIP trunking space as this week saw plenty of activity. Here’s a look at some of the top stories.
Kicking things off, Telefonica announced its intention to shut down its Jajah VoIP service. More specifically, current Jajah account holders were told that they will no longer be able to make calls with any of Jajah’s services, including the main Jajah site and Jajah Direct. However, the Jajah platform is still up and running for now in support of other services, namely the Tu Go OTT mobile app.
Next up, TransNexus released a new report examining the FCC’s VoIP direct access trial, which gives a limited selection of VoIP providers direct access to telephone numbers. While Vonage, a participant of the trial, says that everything is moving along smoothly, it’s still a little too early to declare it out an outright success. Indeed, TransNexus believes that the potential to exhaust the amount of phone numbers available in a given area code could be cause for concern.
In other news, packet processing software provider 6WIND introduced support for the Intel Xeon Processor Platform for Large-Scale Communications Infrastructure Systems in the 6WINDGate networking software solution. This means the solution can now take full advantage of the on-chip security features offered in Intel Communications Chipset 8925, 8950 and 8955 to maximize performance of networking security applications running on Xeon E5-2400 v2 and E5-2600 v2 processors.
Finally, Grandstream’s UCM6100 IP PBX appliance has received certification for use with Clearfly Clearphone SIP trunking. The UCM6100 offers four different models that offer varying levels of service, catering to specific needs, particularly regarding the number of concurrent calls needed and the number of foreign exchange office ports.
That’s all for this week, but there’s more new to be found on the SIP Trunking Report’s front page.
