Sonus Networks recently announced that the Sonus SBC 1000 and SBC 2000 Session Border Controllers (SBCs) are certified for deployment with TalkTalk Business’ Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) trunking services and Microsoft Lync Server 2013.
SIP trunking solutions from TalkTalk Business allow enterprises to reduce capital expenditures by eliminating the need for equipment changeover or disruption of service, so legacy network investments are preserved; and reduce overhead costs associated with operating and maintaining multiple service-specific access lines.
A Microsoft Gold Communications Partner, Sonus helps enterprises optimize Microsoft Lync voice deployments by securing SIP trunking services at the network border and providing a more seamless flow of SIP-based, multi-vendor media for advanced real-time applications like Unified Communications (UC). Access to UC applications such as instant messaging (IM), collaboration, conferencing and voice empowers enterprises to communicate in the most efficient and cost-effective ways – whenever and wherever.
“TalkTalk Business’ network carries more than 2.85 billion voice minutes per month, and we support more than 4 million customer lines and 5 million broadband connections. With demand for SIP increasing exponentially, we are pleased that our range of SIP trunking solutions have been recognized and accredited by Sonus. Our customers demand high-quality SIP solutions and Sonus’ session border controllers help ensure a seamless, robust and secure communications experience,” said Jon Nowell, head of Communication Services, TalkTalk Business.
“Enterprises can now leverage TalkTalk’s SIP trunking service and Sonus’ SBC 1000 or SBC 2000 at the core of their networks to enhance capability, ensure interoperability and provide high levels of network security in Microsoft Lync environments,” said Serge Adam, vice president of EMEA, Sonus. “Sonus is committed to enabling secure, simplified SIP trunking to our partners and customers, and the Sonus SBC 1000 and SBC 2000 deliver built-in resilience, ease of implementation, ease of management and ease of integration into customer networks.”
