AGN Networks Introduces OnDemand SIP Trunking Service

Patrick Barnard, Associate Editor

VoIP service provider AGN Networks today unveiled its new OnDemandSIP trunking service, which the company claims offers businesses “a revolutionary new way to connect their communication network to the Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN).”

The new service uses Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) for call control and routing, enabling businesses to have a single, standards-based IP connection to the PSTN. AGN Networks says the service can be set up in minutes and requires no special hardware.

“Businesses are increasingly adopting Internet protocol (IP) telephony, but to date the powerful new capabilities the technology enables have started and ended with their own private network,” said Michael Hartley, AGN Networks spokesperson, in a
news release. “Most organizations still use a fixed land line to connect to a carrier network, just as they did a decade ago. With OnDemandSIP, AGN Networks helps businesses break through that hurdle and get more out of their IP PBX by connecting to the PSTN over SIP IP trunks instead.”

The service includes a free Web portal which allows systems administrators to set up new toll-free and DID numbers in minutes; add new locations on the fly; easily route inbound numbers; and access comprehensive call detail records and accounting information. It also features five layers of disaster recovery protection – exceeding what is available with legacy phone service. Protection scenarios can be preconfigured to meet the needs of each company and can be changed in minutes as conditions warrant.

AGN Networks’ OnDemandSIP trunk services have been compliance-tested by the Avaya Solution Interoperability and Test Lab for seamless interoperability with Avaya Communication Manager IP telephony software and the Avaya SIP Enablement Server.

AGN claims to be among the first service providers in the industry to achieve Avaya SIP trunking compliance as a member of the Avaya DeveloperConnection program – an initiative to develop, market and sell third-party products that interoperate with Avaya technology and extend the value of a company’s investment in its network.
