|•||OPEN SOURCE TELEPHONY|
|Open-source telephony is experiencing the positive impact of a combination of factors culminating in a perfect storm – the evolution of the telephony solution architecture, acceptance of other open-source projects, an uncertain economy and an unconquered SMB market segment. The opportunity for open-source solutions in general is huge and opensource telephony is becoming a significant competitor in the business telephony market.|
|•||Building Redundancy and Failover into SIP-Enabled Networks|
|SIP deployments are continuing to increase, while due to their mission-critical nature, availability, scalability and security requirements have likewise become essential for their deployment. This advancement has resulted in the need for SIP-enabled WAN link controllers that can accommodate carrier-grade operational requirements within a single, purpose- built device. Using a SIP-enabled WAN link controller that functions as a NAT device, SIP Proxy and SIP registrar within the network will ensure SIP service availability, while providing an easy-to-deploy, manage and monitor solution for reliable service delivery. While server and global load balancers are appropriate for load balancing servers and dispersed sites, they do not provide the ability to create the automated failover and redundant WAN connectivity to support reliable SIP network connectivity.|
Ecessa’s ClariLink is the industry’s first WAN link controller that has solved the problems associated with NATing within a SIP-based network to deliver true link redundancy, failover and load balancing of SIP-based traffic over the WAN.
