Buckeye TeleSystem Embraces InnoMedia ESG for SIP Trunking

MILPITAS, CA--(Marketwire - Nov 3, 2011) - InnoMedia, the leader in innovative VoIP appliances, today announced that Buckeye TeleSystem has selected InnoMedia for its SIP trunking service for Enterprises. SIP trunks provide the same level of quality at a much lower price per circuit when compared to conventional analog phone circuits and are incrementally scalable in real time without the need to install new lines.

The InnoMedia ESBC line of enterprise SIP gateways (ESGs) offers service operators the ideal product for delivering scalable, QoS-managed SIP Trunking and Hosted PBX services to their business customers, including support for traditional PBXs with a PRI connection. It is the ideal solution for integrated SIP Trunking and Data Services to the enterprise customer. InnoMedia's ESBC 9328-4B used by Buckeye TeleSystem offers Back-to-Back User Agent (B2BUA) for reliable SIP Trunk services to customers who have different IPPBXs, SIP ALG for customers who need hosted PBX IPPhone services, a bridge port for high-speed data, a router port with RIPv2 for static IP addresses, an internal battery for power backup, and business friendly primary line VoIP FXS ports.

"We insist on utmost quality and reliability when it comes to our network, and InnoMedia's ESBC 9328, 9380 and 8528 met all of our requirements for functionality and robustness," said Adam Hashi, Manager of VoIP Engineering for Buckeye TeleSystem. "The InnoMedia ESBC product family provides a SIP protocol-level forking capability which allows us to offer hosted voice services supporting a single SIP user account for multiple IP end devices." Hashi added, "The ESBC's next hop static routing further enables us to provide SIP trunking services to a customer having a PBX in one city and IP phones & gateways in another location, perhaps thousands of miles away. We trust InnoMedia product innovations and their customer service to be in line with our need to deliver the best value to our customers."

"InnoMedia's extensive gateway portfolio has been used by Buckeye TeleSystem to provide VoIP services to its customers for several years with great success. Adoption of the InnoMedia's ESBC line of Enterprise SIP gateways (ESGs) further solidifies a mutually beneficial relationship between our companies," said Dr. Nan-Sheng Lin, President of InnoMedia.

In addition to managed MTAs and ESBCs, InnoMedia also offers a comprehensive line of VoIP products including cable modem integrated eMTAs, IP PBXs, IP Phones, and a complementary Element Management System (EMS).
