Netrake Announces Consumer Service Provider Solution


Editor's Note: This is the seventh in a series of short articles from Rich Tehrani based on recent visits with a number of VoIP vendors. The previous article is available here.

It is no secret that enterprise and especially consumer VoIP is hot right now. Netrake allows service providers to more easily tap into the revenue opportunities in both of these markets. Their nCite session controller allows a carrier to tap enterprise native VoIP access, NAT and firewall traversal, QoS services, session admission control session detail records, etc. For carriers connecting with other carriers, nCite allows much of the same features and includes SLA data and QoS routes that vary according to carrier policies. The product also provides detail records for billing and CALEA.

I should point out that the company does a great job of explaining what they do in excruciating detail via easy to understand brochures. Having met with a mind-boggling number of companies as of late, I can tell you they explain their products and the technology spaces they play in better than most others in the VoIP market.

Getting back to what�s new, and why you should care� The company has recently added functionality to their controller allowing you to serve the residential market. No new equipment is required on the customer premises, making the solution easy to deploy. There is also a user mobility feature allowing enterprise users to access their work VPN and even their VoIP service when traveling. nCite is already built to handle volume, in fact as they scale to 42,000 concurrent sessions while maintaining less than 50 microseconds of latency when measured on a packet in/packet out basis. You read correctly� Microseconds, not milliseconds.

Recently, Netrake and Broadsoft have teamed up with Broadsoft to allow the security features of nCite to be available with the BroadWorks IP communications platform. This partnership means that service providers can now supply hosted PBX/IP Centrex services with end-to-end security.

I am impressed with the Netrake team. If you are a tier one carrier looking to service enterprise or consumer customers, give Netrake a call.
