Acme Packet, the provider of session border control solutions, has announced that seventeen customers have deployed its Net-Net session border controllers (SBCs) with systems integrator Siphon Networks. The joint implementations stem from an existing resale and support agreement through which Siphon Networks offers Acme Packet Net-Net SBCs as part of its solutions portfolio for cloud-based telephony service providers. The SBC solution serves local and regional service providers across Northern Europe where Siphon Networks has a strong reputation as a leading systems integrator for hosted communications services.
The companies have already implemented the joint Siphon Networks and Acme Packet SBC solution for seventeen customers, including:
O-bit Telecom – O-bit Telecom provides hosted unified communications, residential VoIP and session initiation protocol (SIP) trunking services that are fully managed or available for resale as a white label service through its subsidiary Purple Networx. O-bit utilises Acme Packet SBCs for security and interoperability as well as advanced SIP routing.
thevoicefactory – thevoicefactory offers hosted UC applications including SIP trunking, mobile PBX, call center, Web 2.0 application integration and HD voice. Acme Packet SBCs are used to facilitate interoperability and service interworking between thevoicefactory’s advanced service infrastructure and its business customers.
“Acme Packet’s expertise in SBCs is an ideal complement to our experience in implementing, integrating and managing VoIP and UC infrastructure networks for customers in Northern Europe,” said Steve Harris, Director, Siphon Networks. “Acme Packet’s SBC solution is now a key part of our overall product portfolio. As indicated by the joint solutions we’ve already implemented for O-bit Telecom, thevoicefactory, Nexus telecommunications and SpeechStorm, we believe the agreement announced today paves the way for helping service providers in Northern Europe to capitalize on the opportunity for hosted IP communications services.”
“Acme Packet and Siphon Networks are serving the growing demand for all-IP, cloud-based, interactive communications services,” said Seamus Hourihan, vice president of marketing and product management for Acme Packet. “The results achieved by our seventeen joint customers point to a highly flexible and scalable solution for overcoming the challenges of deploying these next-generation services.”
