VoIP Switch - Brocade Switches to VoIP Solutions Powered by Redstone

 
February 20, 2013

 


A VoIP switch is touted as an integral element of any SIP platform that can bring a host of Internet telephony services to customers all over the globe. It offers many benefits, including delivering a much richer quality of communication, increased efficiency and reduced costs. In order to keep a competitive edge against others entering the space, businesses are increasingly turning to this solution, with one of the latest being Redstone.

Recently, service provider Redstone began to utilize the Brocade (News - Alert) VDX 6000 series switches and VCS Fabric technology in two of its data centers with the intention of being able to gain access to key cloud-based offerings such as a Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI), network monitoring as well as enhancing messaging and collaboration amongst its workforce and with clients.

According to a statement from Fraser Fisher, managing director at Redstone, “Our portfolio of offerings traditionally focused around co-location services, but more recently our customers have been looking for more sophisticated cloud-based solutions as data volumes skyrocket. With customers looking to move core applications off-premise, and leverage the operational benefits of applications such as VDI and VoIP, the importance of a network that can keep pace with demand increases exponentially.”

By forming this strategic alliance, Ethernet fabrics powered via the VCS Fabric will help administrators to much more easily oversee countless VoIP switches through a highly scalable, comprehensive and integrated platform. At this time, nearly 700 customers are using the VCS fabric-enabled switch portfolio, enabling Redstone to reduce the complexity associated with gaining a higher level of visibility into all managed services coming from its various facilities in the U.K.

When looking for the ideal VoIP switch provider to meet your individual firm’s needs, certain features must be available in order to see the best return on investment. These capabilities include full support for all class 5 features ranging from voicemail and call-waiting to three-way calling. When leveraged correctly, the above mentioned functions can help even the smallest business project the image of a much larger and extremely professional enterprise.

One organization with a lot of experience in helping its users transition to a next-generation infrastructure that encompasses a VoIP switch is Sippy Software. “Sippy Softswitch supports a wide range of business scenarios from Vonage (News - Alert)-like retail operations, calling cards and callback services to wholesale VoIP termination and hosted call shops. Sippy Softswitch has been built atop powerful multi-tier traffic reselling model that facilitates rapid growth of your revenues. We are regularly releasing new major and minor improvements to our system in order to support all scenarios our customers might want to use. We're also available for custom extensions development so that each and every customer can get exactly what is needed,” the company’s website reveals.

If you are wishing to implement a flexible solution that can help you measure up to current and future customer demands, now is the time to take a closer look at how a VoIP switch can help your business to grow.
