Broadvox 2011 Partner Summit, Dallas, TX – May 3, 2011 – Broadvox, an VoIP telephony industry pioneer since 2001 and leader in SIP Trunking, today announced that it has selected the AudioCodes Median 1000 Enterprise Session Border Controller for GO! SIP Trunking deployments at customer premises that have the Microsoft Lync Server 2010 and Microsoft Office Communication Server R2.
By using the AudioCodes’ Enterprise Session Border Controllers (E-SBC), Enterprise customers can securely connect their Microsoft Unified Communications environment to all Broadvox GO! SIP Trunking products. With AudioCodes Mediant platforms, customers can support PSTN and Broadvox GO! SIP Trunk interfaces in the same box, preventing forklift upgrades, and enabling gradual migration from costly PSTN circuits to SIP Trunking services, providing security and interoperability.
“This is another important step in achieving our vision of future communications solutions – integrating industry-leading Broadvox GO! SIP Trunking services with Microsoft Unified Communications applications”, said Alan Percy, Director of Market Development, AudioCodes. “SIP Trunking is an excellent way for Enterprises to reduce operating costs, and the Mediant 1000 E-SBC delivers a migration strategy that allows them to move from TDM trunking to SIP Trunking while reducing equipment costs and risk“
Chief Technology Officer, Sergey Galchenko, stated, “Not only is AudioCodes the right choice for businesses that require a platform for compatibility with Microsoft Lync Server 2000 and Microsoft Office Communication Server R2, but AudioCodes E-SBC s are also dependable, secure and of a quality that can be trusted to support carrier level voice and data traffic, like ours at Broadvox.”
AudioCodes’ Mediant 1000 platform is a flexible networking device, supporting a number of services for the Microsoft UC environment. The Mediant 1000 can simultaneously connect the Microsoft Lync 2010 server, Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007 or Microsoft Exchange Server 2007/2010 into existing TDM PBXs, IP-PBXs or PSTN services, as well as into SIP Trunking services. In addition, it can be configured as a stand-alone “Basic” or “Enhanced” gateway, as well as a “Basic Hybrid Gateway” or “Survivable Branch Appliance”, integrating Microsoft software inside. It can be ordered as a TDM-to-IP gateway, a Multi-Service Business Gateway, an Enterprise Session Border Controller or a combination of the three, supporting up to 120 TDM-to-IP channels and 150 SBC sessions.
Broadvox SIP Trunking enables customers to place and receive PSTN calls via a broadband WAN connection and the SIP protocol. This converged network solution is an alternative to traditional PSTN trunks, such as ISDN-PRI. This allows businesses to integrate Call Processing, Unified Communications, Messaging (IM and SMS), Presence and Mobility in an integrated platform. These elements combine to unify the business communications experience, regardless of location or device.
