The communications needs of governments and enterprises, as well as consumers and small businesses, is now in great part delivered through digital services. This has made it possible for individuals and small organizations to access enterprise grade solutions, and for enterprises to scale as needed without the limitations of legacy systems. Mexico's Axtel is improving its unified communications (UC) and SIP trunking service infrastructure by deploying AudioCodes Mediant session border controllers (SBC) so two of its brands, Alestra and Axtel, can better serve their customers.

Axtel is an information and communications technology company serving enterprises, governments and residential markets in Mexico. It has a portfolio of services which it delivers through two of its brands and a network infrastructure of more than 40,000 km (24,854.8 mi) of fiber, and over 7,000 square meters (75,347.3 square feet) of data center space.

This massive infrastructure is looking to deploy a robust communication solution capable of supporting the millions of customers in Mexico. For Axtel, the solution was AudioCodes’ Mediant SBC.

“We selected the AudioCodes Mediant 9000 SBC for its rich capabilities and smooth integration with our advanced SIP for Business and Hosted IP-PBX solutions. AudioCodes has consistently delivered innovative, high-quality voice over IP products, including multi-service business routers, media gateways, on-premises session border controllers and IP phones that complement our core solutions,” said Luis Arturo Rosales, Voice and Collaboration Strategy Product Manager at Axtel.

Based in Israel, AudioCodes designs, develops and sells advanced Voice-over-IP (VoIP) and converged VoIP and data networking products and applications to service providers and enterprises around the world. This includes its Mediant SBC, which is going to allow Axtel to accelerate the rate in which it will be able to deliver next generation communication services by mediating between its business customers, UCaaS platform and SIP trunking infrastructure.

AudioCodes’ Mediant 9000 is a high-capacity SBC for large deployments offering comprehensive security, interoperability and reliability.

The security protocol of the Mediant 9000 has perimeter defense against denial of service, fraud and eavesdropping threats to ensure the protection of each communications session. Quality is ensured with VoIP monitoring and enforcement to ensure branch survivability during WAN failure with active/standby high availability.

Yehuda Herscovici, VP Product at AudioCodes, said, “The Mediant 9000 SBC encapsulates the full breadth of our mature, feature-rich and globally deployed SBC software in a highly efficient and scalable platform that is a perfect fit for next-generation IP telephony architecture.”
