With the global proliferation of voice over IP (VoIP) services, telecom carriers worldwide are adopting session border controllers (SBCs) to drive VoIP and the related SIP trunking communications business. As a result, this past week there were several international announcements in this space.
Smarttel Technologies - a global carrier based in Bangladesh - has selected session border controllers (SBC) from Sonus. The company opted for the Sonus SBC 5100 for its Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) platform used in its network, TMCnet reported.
As newer technologies are widely adopted, legacy technologies are often retired as a result; such is the way of the technology industry. Indeed, a recent report from Dell'Oro Group, a market research firm for the networking and telecommunications industries, has underscored this point further with revenue performance from the first quarter in the carrier IP telephony market.
Sonus Networks, Inc., a company that deals in SIP communications, recently announced that its Sonus PSX Centralized Policy and Routing Server has been selected by Iristel, a Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) service provider, to centralize management and provisioning of all routes and network policies within the core of its network.
Sonus Networks has dedicated itself to serving the breadth of the session border controller market, from the enterprise all the way to the service provider. In its ongoing efforts to provide to both sets of customers, Sonus has made several hardware and software changes to its line of session border controllers.
