NexTone Communications, which makes session management platforms, announced today at VON that Hipcom, a European provider of hosted IP telephony, has deployed the NexTone Multiprotocol Session Controller (MSC).
The NexTone MSC supports both Class 4 and Class 5 call routing, and is interoperability-tested with the Broadsoft BroadWorks VoIP application server. Hipcom’s initial network deployment of the NexTone MSC included the implementation and integration of Broadsoft’s platform.
The functionality within the NexTone MSC also has enabled Hipcom to deploy SIP trunking a new service for its reseller partners. The NexTone MSC’s SIP trunking capability lets Hipcom route traditional TDM voice minutes over IP, so its partners now can take advantage of VoIP.
Hipcom’s hosted services are sold through more than 20 reseller channel partners in the U.K. The companys outsourced IP network model enables carriers, ISPs, and voice and data integrators to provide enterprise IP telephony services.
