SIP Trunking Week In Review

By David Delony

There’s always something exciting going on in the world of SIP trunking. Here are some of the top stories we’ve been following in the past week.

The Saint Bernard Parish in Madison, Wis. has chosen the E-MetroTel UCX50 to deliver unified communications to the more than 1,000 families it serves. The UCX appliance can integrate video conferencing, analog and IP phones, allowing seamless communication.

tw telecom has announced it is expanding its fiber network in the Kansas City area and to the cities of North Kansas City, Mo., and Overland Park, Kan. The added fiber will allow the company to offer services such as Business Ethernet and Intelligent Network capabilities.

Allworx, a developer of IP phones and network systems, has announced it has signed an agreement with Target Distributing, a national distributor of IP and telecommunications products, to distribute Allworx’s complete product line. The lineup includes Allworx’s IP phones and network switches.

LiveCom Limited, an ISP based in Hong Kong, has announced that it has selected satellite communications provider iDirect’s Evolution IP communication platform. The platform provides intelligent routing to help improve message bandwidth and delivery.

TMC gave Toshiba a 2014 Communications Solution Product of the Year award for its iPledge Application Server. The iPledge can handle data, voice and audio communication in a single platform, making IP communications more affordable for both small businesses and enterprise companies with multiple locations.

One of the problems that has hindered VoIP adoption is its lack of reliability in the past when connecting to 911 services. Morgan County in Ohio is attempting to fix that by updating its 911 call center to integrate with VoIP providers.

WebRTC is an emerging technology allowing video conferencing through Web browsers. It’s also becoming an important part of SIP trunking technology. Ingate Technologies demonstrated its new  WebRTC E-SBC PBX Companion at the WebRTC Conference & Expo in Atlanta. It allows WebRTC calls, such as from a “click-to-call” button on a website, to go through a PBX system.
