By Rory Lidstone, TMCnet Contributing Writer
TMC's (News - Alert) ITEXPO West 2012 is off to a great start today with the news that AudioCodes' entire Enterprise Session Border Controller (E-SBC) product family has been validated by the ShoreTel (News - Alert) Innovation Network. This allows for deployment of ShoreTel unified communications systems with the cost-saving SIP trunking services provided by AudioCodes E-SBCs.
“The ShoreTel IN validation of AudioCodes E-SBCs expands the pool of compatible SIP Trunking service providers for ShoreTel partners,” said Pejman Roshan (News - Alert), vice president product management at ShoreTel. “AudioCodes’ interoperability opens many cost-saving opportunities, ultimately allowing end-customers to choose the provider that best fits their communications needs.”
ShoreTel is a top provider of simple, premises- and cloud-based IP phone systems, serving more than 20,000 businesses with integrated unified communication, mobility and contact center capabilities. The company will be participating in ITEXPO (News - Alert) West, taking place this week.
ShoreTel president and CEO Peter Blackmore will deliver the morning keynote address at the event on Wednesday, October 3.
“We’re pleased to have completed this important milestone with ShoreTel,” said Alan Percy (News - Alert), senior director of marketing for North America at AudioCodes. “This expands our certification relationship to now include E-SBCs for SIP Trunking and integration with other third-party applications, plus media gateways for expansion of ShoreTel installations.”
AudioCodes designs, develops and sells advanced and converged VoIP, as well as data networking products and applications to service providers and enterprises. The company's family of Enterprise Session Border Controllers is key for any service provider or business considering making the switch to a VoIP-based communications infrastructure.
AudioCodes’ Mediant 800 E-SBC, for example, is an excellent tool as it acts as a first line of defense against malicious attacks against a VoIP system.
