Sonus Networks (SONS) announced it has completed the first phase implementation of a next-generation network deployment with Bandwidth.com. The new all-IP network at Bandwidth.com will deliver secure, advanced business communications services to SMBs across the country.
Bandwidth.com is introducing a complete Sonus IP-based session control network as part of the company’s business plan to become a nationwide CLEC. The first services on the Sonus-based network are already live, providing integrated access services in 300 metropolitan markets. The services include unlimited calling, Internet service and the capability to work with most enterprise phone systems at flat-rate price points.
“The Sonus portfolio of integrated solutions delivers a robust IP-based network for advanced services,” said Mohammed Shanableh, vice president of global sales at Sonus Networks. “The intelligent session control technology enables Bandwidth.com to make its network more resource-efficient. Bandwidth.com will be able to offer its business customers a range of innovative applications such as IP Business trunks, IP Centrex and collaboration applications.”
Bandwidth.com will deploy the end-to-end Sonus solution, including the ASX Access Server, GSX9000 Media Gateway, PSX Call Routing Server, SGX Signaling Gateway, the NBS Network Border Switch as the Session border controller for IP Access and Trunking and the Sonus Insight Management System.
