Webinar - Why Choose NET for your Microsoft SBA and SIP Trunking SBC?
By Paula Bernier, Executive Editor, TMC
Organizations looking to benefit from unified communications while protecting their current investments might want to consider the solutions offered by Network Equipment Technologies (News - Alert) Inc. The company’s UX architecture enables customers to connect and enhance new and existing telecommunications equipment and, as a result, realize new communications functionality and productivity, performance, security capabilities, and savings.
It helps customer protect their current investments by, for example, enabling them to deploy new platforms such as Lync and rest assured that this investments will be protected when future needs evolve. That’s because the solution’s DSP technology supports high-definition audio and video transcoding without the need for new hardware. And in IP-to-IP scenarios, there is no intermediary step to convert to TDM before converting to IP.
UX users also can feel secure knowing they’re protected – both at the hardware and software levels – from denial of service attacks. The solution’s hardware-based session firewall only allows the packets to the CPU that need to be processed. And media and signaling are encrypted at wire speed. Also noteworthy is the fact that the UX series has just one Ethernet interface for both the gateway and the SBA. That means the SBA is behind the firewall. This set up also allows administrators to use a single management interface to configure the gateway and the SBA in a single session.
The UX Series also enables customers to write their own configuration and management interface using RESTFul APIs.
In addition to running the SBC, the UX Series can be leveraged to run third-party applications. Applications like voice quality measurement, mobile clients for Lync, and call recording applications are pre integrated. NET (News - Alert) also ensures that the UX platform is tested and certified to work with SIP trunking service providers like Level3. Additionally, NET delivers through the UX solution AD-based call routing; call forking of up to eight endpoints; and E911 information over SIP trunking.
