By Rory Lidstone TMCnet Contributing Writer
Provider of next-generation networking solutions, ADTRAN (News - Alert) today released a number of enhancements to its NetVanta series portfolio of enterprise-class networking equipment. Specifically, the NetVanta 4430 Series is being upgraded with the enterprise Session Border Control (eSBC) Feature Pack, while the session capabilities of the NetVanta 3430 have now been doubled.
These enhancements are meant to address the monitoring and management needs for service providers with growing demand for SIP trunking services.
The NetVanta 4430 with eSBC Feature Pack is capable of supporting upwards of 300 sessions, while the NetVanta 3430 can now support up to 100. This expanded session support is meant to meet the demand for a product set capable of managing and maintaining SIP trunking across a network footprint as it grows. Indeed, the ability to field upgrade ADTRAN's IP business gateways with eSBC functionality enables its customers to tap into the growing SIP trunking market quickly and easily.
“The ability to remotely software upgrade our industry leading installed base of IPBG’s and access routers provides tremendous value to our service provider customers. It delivers a compelling and cost-effective transition path to newer services without the need to replace equipment already installed in the network,” said Chris Thompson (News - Alert), ADTRAN’s director of product management, Cloud Connectivity Solutions, in a statement.
“Our customers rely on us for technology to drive network efficiency and to open up new paths for service and revenue growth. The expansion of eSBC capability, in terms of capacity and across the product line, is a prime example of our ability and commitment to help providers achieve these goals,” added Thompson.
ADTRAN also recently unveiled a revolutionary voice migration platform that addresses market demand for multiple-voice deployment on an efficient single-solution platform. Part of the NetVanta 7000 family, this software configuration enables deployment of premise-based PBX (News - Alert) functions or cloud-based and hosted VoIP services with a single hardware platform.
