It seems as though the SIP trunking space was looking to make up for the slow holiday weeks preceding it as there was a lot of activity this week. Here’s a look at some of the top stories.
Kicking things off, Waves Audio has begun collaborating with its OEM partners, which include the likes of Dell and Asus, to set new audio performance standards though its Maxx brand. The Maxx brand includes a range of compressors, reverbs, noise reduction tools and more, such as MaxxAudio, MaxxVoice and MaxxSpeech. The latest MaxxAudio release in particular includes environment-sensitive technologies and features designed to bring enhanced output performance for VoIP applications.
Next, Voxox’s SIP trunking solution was deemed compliant with select Avaya unified communications solutions this week, particularly Avaya Aura Communication Manager 6.3 and Avaya Aura Session Manager 6.3. As part of the successful completion of compliance testing, Voxox is now a Technology Partner in the Avaya DevConnect program.
Move things along, Allworx announced the latest release of its System Software. Version 7.6 brings features specifically geared toward making any SIP-based phone system easier to program and manage. In particular, domestic and international customers are now able to leverage the software’s enhanced external dialing plan, which allows external and emergency dialing protocols to be imported and exported by the server.
In other news, Integrated Broadband Services (IBBS) and Momentum agreed to merge this week. The two companies claim to be the largest companies in their respective fields, broadband management and private label VoIP, and both serve a similar client base made up of MSPs, cable companies and municipalities. As a result, potential clients in these areas will have less partner choice, but a much stronger single vendor.
Lastly, Edgewater Networks released a new E-SBC, dubbed the EdgeProtect 4550. This offering is aimed at SMBs with the aim of providing them a single product for video conferencing that is both reliable and secure. It boasts support for H.323 and SIP devices in addition to video client support with SIP / H.460 far-end NAT traversal.
