Telio Taps Sonus to Power IP-Based Voice Service

By Johanne Torres, TMCnet Contributing Editor

VoIP service supplier Sonus Networks announced on Tuesday that European VoIP provider Telio selected its IMS-ready system as the foundation for the company's IP-based voice network. Telio offers primary line residential services throughout Europe.
According to Sonus’ news release, Telio selected Sonus because it meets European-specific signaling requirements. Sonus also supports Telio's plug-and-play IP-based voice service, which currently carries more than 100 million minutes of voice traffic per month.
“To encourage the adoption of IP-based voice services, it is imperative that consumers experience the same quality, reliability, and ease of use that they're accustomed to with legacy voice offerings,” said Telio's co-founder and CTO Alan Duric in a statement.
Duric continued: “Telio's service is a straightforward plug-and-play solution. By selecting Sonus as the foundation for the network, we're able to deliver the level of service that our customers expect, introduce interesting new features and applications, and scale as the demand for our service continues to grow across Europe.”
Telio currently offers IP-based voice services in Norway under the Telio brand. The provider also offers its Telio Voice Production System (TVPS) on a white label basis for European ISPs. Telio has deployed a suite of Sonus services comprised of the GSX9000 and GSX4000 Open Service Switches; PSX Call Routing Server, SGX Signaling Gateway, and the Sonus Network Border Switch for better security and direct IP-to-IP peering.
“Sonus is one of the only solutions available today that delivers proven quality and reliability with a robust suite of residential voice features required for primary line service in Europe,” said Sonus’ chairman and CEO Hassan Ahmed. “Sonus is dedicated to helping European operators unlock the potential of next-generation communications, increasing their average revenue per user, and supporting enhanced applications that will redefine the expectations for communications services.”
Sonus had announced a similar deal with owner and operator of a European telecom network Interoute. The deal, announced last Wednesday, called for Sonus to provide Interoute with an IMS-ready network infrastructure system to support the multimillion dollar expansion of its IP-based voice network into several markets, including Madrid, Spain and Milan, Italy.
The Sonus system currently offers Interoute the authentication and security features to support its carrier-class Virtual Voice Network (VVN) service and Arena, Interoute’s commission-free voice exchange, which enable carriers to exchange traffic with other operators around the world.
“We selected the Sonus platform because, from day one, we recognized the flexibility that its distributed, standards-based architecture would deliver,” said Matthew Finnie, CTO, Interoute. “The Sonus platform utilizes sound engineering principles fundamentally in line with the emerging IMS standards, which enables the development of standards-based services such as enhanced content aggregation and delivery. A standards-based architecture is essential for the shared infrastructure products that Interoute offers to our customers.”
