GENBAND Participates in SIPconnect-IT 2012 to Demonstrate SIP Connect 1.1 Interoperability for SIP Trunking
FRISCO, Texas --(Business Wire)--
a leading developer of IP infrastructure and application
solutions, today announced its participation in SIP Forum's (News - Alert)
SIPconnect-IT 2012. Scheduled for Dec. 3-7, at the University of New
Hampshire Interoperability Laboratory (UNH-IOL) in Durham, New
Hampshire, SIPconnect-IT 2012 provides the global telecom community the
opportunity to test for interoperability with the SIPconnect 1.1
specification for SIP Trunking in a live network environment. GENBAND (News - Alert) is
participating in the event with the S3™
Session Border Controller and A2™
Communications Application Server.
"SIPconnect-IT is an ideal forum to demonstrate our industry-leading SIP
Trunking capabilities on the GENBAND SBC and Application Server
platforms while further cementing our commitment to the latest open
standards and interoperability specifications," said B.G. Kumar,
President of the Multimedia Business Unit for GENBAND. "As enterprises
of all sizes, including government organizations, universities and
contact centers, look to leverage their investments and converge voice
and data networks, GENBAND's continued investment in SIP Trunking and
Unified Multimedia Communications (UC) architecture is central to
enabling multimedia communications across any mobile phone, tablet,
desktop computer or office phone."
GENBAND's intelligent S3 Session Border Controller simplifies the
deployment of SIP-based services by securely managing, interoperating,
and controlling real-time voice and multimedia sessions at the network
edge. It is a proven leader across a wide spectrum of applications
including IP Interconnect, IPX, Enterprise
Unified Communications, SIP
Business Trunking, Residential Voice Over Internet Protocol (VoIP),
Voice Over Long Term Evolution (VoLTE) and the Rich Communications Suite
The market-leading A2 Communications Application Server will be tested
alongside the S3 Session Border Controller, and is the only application
server that has fully integrated multimedia desktop and mobile
applications for voice, video, conferencing, instant messaging, voice
and visual messaging, presence, collaboration and mobility. The A2
Communications Application Server is an IP-based application server
providing VoLTE and RCS Unified Multimedia Communications for both
residential and business deployments.
"SIPconnect-IT 2012 marks an important step in galvanizing the industry
toward universal adoption of and compliance with the SIPconnect 1.1
specification," said Marc Robins (News - Alert), SIP Forum President and Managing
Director. "It will give the IP communications engineering community an
opportunity to put the theory and ideals of SIPconnect 1.1 into action
and begin the hard work of identifying and ultimately resolving key
internetworking issues related to SIP Trunking."
The newly developed SIPconnect 1.1 Interoperability Test Plan focuses on
testing interoperability between different vendor products and network
elements involved in SIP Trunking services. Testing procedures will aim
to verify interoperability between an Enterprise SIP-PBX (News - Alert) and a Service
Provider network SIP Signaling Entity (SP-SSE).
