Calltrade Carrier Services Interconnects with Sonus Session Border Controllers

Sonus Networks, Inc. (Nasdaq: SONS), a global leader in SIP communications, today announced that Switzerland-based competitive operator Calltrade Carrier Services AG is using the Sonus SBC 5000 Series of Session Border Controllers as part of its wholesale voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) service. The Sonus SBCs are being deployed at Calltrade interconnect borders – demarcation points where two networks meet – to secure the network borders as well as monitor and enforce service levels.

As an international communications provider, Calltrade terminates more than 15 billion minutes of voice traffic per year for fixed-line providers, mobile phone companies and cable companies worldwide. Calltrade is networked with more than 150 telecommunications carriers across the globe, including nearly all of the world’s leading international carriers. To support Calltrade’s global footprint, the Sonus SBC 5200 Series delivers advanced media services and protocol interworking to ensure seamless interoperability with other service providers.

The SBC 5200 Series supports up to 64,000 sessions on a single server and provides advanced routing and integrated transcoding capability. As the number and variety of devices connecting to the network increase, the SBC 5200 Series acts as a VoIP translator in the Calltrade network, ensuring that two devices with different codecs communicate properly. In addition, the Sonus SBCs enable high quality of service levels by adjusting bandwidth as voice, video and data cross the Calltrade network to ensure calls or sessions are completed without performance issues. Ensuring interoperability with other services, devices and endpoints on the network helps Calltrade increase revenues by offering interconnect, transcoding and advanced routing services to customers and partners worldwide.

“Terminating more than 15 billion minutes of traffic per year requires a Session Border Controller that can scale on-demand as our business continues to grow, without compromising performance. Calltrade selected the Sonus SBC 5200 Series because of its inherent strengths in supporting VoIP and SIP communications with high levels of security, media switching and transcoding services in a single, scalable device. Sonus SBCs provide exceptional transcoding functionality that no other SBC vendor is able to deliver,” said Daniel Groth, president and chief executive officer, Calltrade Carrier Services AG.

“As the demand for network-to-network IP interconnection continues to expand, so does the critical role of Session Border Controllers in service provider networks, and we are proud to be a strategic part of Calltrade’s network,” said Serge Adam, vice president of EMEA, Sonus. “Sonus SBCs are designed for service providers seeking new revenue streams by transforming their network capabilities while ensuring exceptional levels of security and performance.”

Enterprise IT has been in the era of Hybrid Cloud for some time now. But it seems most conversations about Hybrid are focused on integrating AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google ECM into existing on-premises systems. Where is all the Private Cloud?

How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?
