nexVortex and ADTRAN Alleviate Worries with mSIP

Calling all SMBs! I have good news. Has your business kept away from SIP Trunking because you’re afraid of using it over the public Internet as a replacement for Primary Rate Interfaces (PRI)? It’s okay, you’re not alone. A lot of companies haven’t made the switch yet because they don’t like the idea of not being able to control voice quality over that network. Well, it’s your lucky day because nexVortex has teamed up with ADTRAN, Inc. to tackle this very problem, among others.

The result of this partnership is a solution called Managed SIP (mSIP). mSIP uses ADTRAN equipment on the customer premise connected to nexVortex's nationwide (geo-redundant) private IP/MPLS backbone to guarantee quality of service (QoS) for voice calls (VoIP) to and from the public switched telephone network.

Not only that, but nexVortex has wrapped the solution around a set of voice-quality measurement, monitoring and reporting tools in order t0 measure QoS at each segment of the call path. Meanwhile, ADTRAN's customer premise equipment serves as a differentiation point. There, voice calls are marked and measured for QoS before moving on to the network for routing. Through this system, call quality can be measured and network issues can be pinpointed for definitive trouble shooting.

“SIP Trunking is our business. We have been delivering SIP Trunking as a commercial service for over 10 years and understand that different businesses have different needs,” said Wes Rogers, founder and COO of nexVortex.

He continued, “While SIP Trunking over the public Internet is perfectly fine for many companies, others want a SIP solution with specific guarantees. With that in mind, we made significant investment in our network infrastructure, tools and software to deliver an mSIP Trunking Service so that business owners can confidently replace aging, expensive and soon to be retired PRIs.”

With this solution, your company can take advantage of the economics and scalability of SIP Trunking. It’s no secret that carriers are raising prices on PRIs and are often refusing to renew PRI contracts—this is a result of the move to forcibly retire legacy circuit switched technology from the network and replace it with IP. With PRIs days’ being numbered anyway, there’s no time like the present to give SIP Trunking a try.
