More France IP Communications Stories
September 22, 2011
Network Equipment Technologies (News - Alert), Inc. (NET), a leading provider of enterprise-class networking solutions optimized for secure real-time communications, recently announced in a press release that it has integrated its VX1200/VX1800 gateways with IP Directions, the leading provider of SIP trunk and high value-added carrier services in France. Apart from relying on session border controller (SBC), NET's (News - Alert) VX series products also depend on the capability to simultaneously monitor heterogeneous voice flows at various levels such as network, transportation, VoIP and/or TDM protocols, codecs conversion and an intelligent telephony network routing based upon the Active Directory.
"We are very pleased about our partnership with NET, as this provides enterprise customers with a high quality, low cost solution for full interoperability of their Microsoft (News - Alert) Lync environment through NET's VX Series gateway. The solution also enables interoperability between existing telephony systems (PBX or IPBX) and the PSTN environment through the SIP trunk with full transparency and without the need to modify the dialing plan," said Franck Maloubier, Managing Director at IP Directions, in a statement.
"SIP trunking is becoming a key element for operators. With our VX Series and UX Series products, our objective is to provide partners with innovative VoIP solutions for enterprise security, monitoring and routing the VoIP flow including SIP trunk services such as those that IP Directions offers. Our gateways allow investment optimization, configuration and monitoring, scaling Microsoft Lync deployments to the existing infrastructure at a customer's site," said Pascal Plessis, Pre-Sales Engineer at NET, in a statement.
Recently, Network Equipment Technologies announced that its UX Series, a gateway for Microsoft Lync Server 2010 with Session Border Controller (SBC), is being adopted by Pure IP as a component of Pure IP's SIP trunking service, both at the core and at the edge of the network for customers deploying Microsoft Lync Server 2010. Pure IP delivers secure, feature-rich, high quality service over a public or private Internet connection to help enable successful Microsoft Lync deployments across different locations. A customer using Pure IP's SIP trunking service, with Microsoft Lync, deployed NET's UX2000 with SBC at the core of their network to manage interoperability. The solution was tested by Wipro (News - Alert), an independent interoperability testing house, in their UK labs.
