Acme Packet Signs Integration Deal with HP
HP has integrated the Acme Packet family of Net-Net enterprise session border controllers (E-SBCs) into the HP Unified Communications (UC) Solutions Portfolio.
This integration enables HP to deploy IP-based UC solutions that strengthen security, enhance reliability and interoperate with a variety of UC infrastructure and communication service offerings.
As per the agreement, HP has incorporated Acme Packet Net-Net E-SBCs into its portfolio of UC solutions.
According to Acme Packet, its E-SBCs have the ability to address critical interoperability, service quality and security challenges arising when using IP to deliver real-time voice, video and UC.
Companies note that this strategic move will facilitate consolidation of communications services onto a unified IP network infrastructure.
This consolidation will not impact existing applications, security compromises, or service interruptions.
“Instant-On enterprises require UC solutions that can be quickly deployed and rapidly adapt to meet the demands of a dynamic business environment,” said Imran Khan, vice president of HP Network Consulting. “Acme Packet session border controllers teamed with HP's UC platform deliver highly scalable enterprise solutions that enable secure, reliable communications services for clients.”
“Our industry-leading E-SBC solutions combine support for Alcatel-Lucent, Avaya, Microsoft, Polycom and other leading UC solutions with a rich feature set,” said Dino Di Palma, senior vice president of worldwide sales and business development at Acme Packet. “This support complements HP's world-class Unified Communications Solutions, which use a vendor-independent approach to architect and provide solutions that best suit client needs.”
