VoIP Switch - ADTRAN Raises the Bar on VoIP Switches, Enabling Businesses to Triple Their Service Reach

October 10, 2012


ADTRAN (News - Alert), Inc. is a go-to company that many service providers, private enterprises, government organization and millions of users worldwide join hands with in order to gain access to a robust portfolio of voice, data, video and Internet communications. Hence, it is obvious why the company continues to drive efficiency in next-generation communications through the use of VoIP Switches and many more solutions.

In addition, earlier this month the organization debuted ActivReach, an innovative Ethernet technology that has the ability to support various types of wiring and can successfully enhance service reach nearly three times the range when compared to traditional Ethernet offerings. Powering voice, data and Power over Ethernet (PoE) via a single platform, ActiveReach wouldn’t be possible without a little help from its friend the NetVanta 1535P Gigabit Ethernet switch, which drives flexibility and scalability in long distance networks.

According to company officials, “This industry-breakthrough capability allows millions of businesses around the world to easily utilize their existing voice-grade wiring infrastructure to access IP-based voice, hosted services, cloud-based unified communications (UC), and deliver data networking speeds at 100Mbps while transitioning their business towards a Gigabit future.”

Office buildings, schools, retail stores, hotels and hospitals that were erected many years ago typically utilize a CAT3 infrastructure for their phone systems. Yet, this outdated cabling can significantly hinder a company from seeing the benefits associated with leveraging IP voice and data network capabilities.

In fact, the Best Western Rivertree Inn in Clarkston, Wash., has already implemented ADTRAN's NetVanta 1535P, helping the hotel to seamlessly integrated two separate infrastructures that offers connectivity up to 100Mbps.

"Until recently, we were not able to provide all of the data services that our guests have come to expect from the hotel industry. We needed to provide a consistent guest experience, regardless of which room they were in, and we were unable to do that before," said Ella Dilling, owner, Best Western Rivertree Inn, in a statement. "ADTRAN's ActivReach technology has enabled us to offer high-speed data access across the entire property, while lowering our overall operating expenses for the hotel because we were able to avoid the costly installation of new cable."

Another company continuing to increase its customer base is Sippy Software, the firm behind the Sippy Softswitch, a high-performance, SIP platform that has been designed from the ground up to offer multiple Internet Telephony (News - Alert) (VoIP) services to a wide range of enterprises and wholesale clients.

This softswitch is perfect for someone just opening a new Internet telephony business or even a corporation with deep roots that wishes to revamp its current VoIP platform to support new demands in a cost-effective manner.
