FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
InnoMedia and Clearcable Networks partner to provide SIP Trunking and Hosted Voice Solutions to Source Cable
Milpitas, CA – November 15, 2011 – InnoMedia, the leader in innovative business voice solutions, today announced that it has worked with its partner, Clearcable Networks, in deploying SIP Trunking and Hosted Voice services for Source Cable Limited in Hamilton, Ontario. InnoMedia’s Enterprise SIP Gateway (ESG) products allow service providers such as Source Cable to provide SIP-based voice services to their enterprise customers, secure in the knowledge that issues such as SIP normalization between the enterprise IP-PBX and the operator’s SIP servers, NAT Traversal, QoS Management and Network Quality Monitoring have been fully addressed by the InnoMedia ESG.
The InnoMedia ESBC product family of ESGs offers a variety of connection models ranging from (a) high-speed Ethernet connectivity both to the IP-PBX and to the operator’s core network, through (b) PRI-enabled models that allow service providers to provide SIP trunks to end users with traditional PBXs using a PRI connection, to (c) devices having a DOCSIS 2.0 or DOCSIS 3.0 interface that enable cable MSO’s to deliver business voice solutions in a very integrated form factor. Each unit also provides four business-friendly FXS ports, a bridge port for high-speed data, a router port with RIPv2 broadcast capability for enabling public IP addresses at the enterprise, as well as an internal battery with full telemetry for power backup.
“We are pleased to have worked with InnoMedia on a highly successful deployment at Source Cable,” states Darryl Chandler, VP Operations, General Manager of Source Cable. “One particularly attractive feature of the InnoMedia ESG product line for Source Cable was the ability to utilize Smart-DQoS™ technology to provide a guaranteed end-to-end QoS mechanism over our HFC plant. This allowed us to deliver high-quality SIP Trunking and Hosted PBX services that would normally be run only on fiber or active Ethernet networks by large and medium-sized enterprises down to small businesses by leveraging the broad reach and cost-effectiveness of our DOCSIS-based coaxial cable access network.”
“We are delighted that Source Cable has chosen the InnoMedia ESG as a key component in their network,” said Shailesh Patel, Sr. Director, Product Management at InnoMedia. “We’re finding that more and more cable operators are recognizing the benefits of our Smart-DQoS™ technology and using it to supply an assured quality experience to their enterprise voice customers without the need for the added network complexity of PacketCable Multimedia. Allied with its strengths in providing SIP normalization, NAT Traversal and Performance Monitoring, as well as an established track record for quality and reliability, the InnoMedia ESG is proving to be the ideal demarcation point for cable MSO’s and broadband service providers alike in their delivery of business voice services to their customers.”
In addition to ESG devices, InnoMedia also offers a comprehensive suite of VoIP products including cable modem integrated eMTAs, Ethernet-based ATAs, IP PBXs, IP Phones, and a complementary Element Management System (EMS) for provisioning and managing the entire portfolio of InnoMedia products.
