MILPITAS, CA--(Marketwired - May 12, 2014) - InnoMedia, the leader in Embedded Enterprise Session Border Controller (ESBC) technology, today announced broadened adoption by Buckeye TeleSystem of the InnoMedia ESBC line for its SIP trunk offering.
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. Using InnoMedia's PRI capable ESBCs, enterprises with in-house TDM PBX phone systems will accrue all the benefits of SIP trunking without having to replace their existing PBX and telephone sets.
The InnoMedia ESBCs allow service operators to deliver scalable, QoS-managed SIP Trunking and Hosted PBX services to their business customers. For enterprises utilizing a TDM PBX today, the InnoMedia ESBC with PRI includes a SIP ALG and B2BUA capability that offers a simple migration path to Hosted deployments and full end-to-end SIP trunking without the service operator having to replace customer premise equipment.
"We've enjoyed great success with InnoMedia ESBCs connected to our network," said Adam Hashi, Manager of VoIP Engineering for Buckeye TeleSystem. "Exclusively using the InnoMedia ESBC, Buckeye Telesystems is successfully offering enterprises the benefits of SIP trunks regardless of whether they have IP Phones, IP PBXs or a traditional TDM PBX."
"We are proud to have partnered with Buckeye TeleSystem to provide SIP trunk services for several years with great success," said Shailesh Patel, Senior Director of Product Management at InnoMedia. "SIP trunking adoption is growing rapidly and we are proud to be in the forefront of that technology with our comprehensive line of ESBCs, which includes support for one or multiple PRIs."
InnoMedia ESBCs have been successfully deployed commercially since 2011. All models of the InnoMedia ESBC have an internal battery backup, complete session border control features and 911 support. The telephony features of the ESBC include reliable fax with T.38, POS friendly features including high/low-speed modem support, two B Channel Call Transfer (TBCT) and RLT support. Furthermore, the ESBC offers carrier grade diagnostics and is highly manageable with auto-provisioning and device management.
