FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
InnoMedia’s ESBC 8528-4B with Smart-DQoS™Technology Added to Product Offering by Net2Phone
Will Facilitate Integrated Service Offering of SIP trunks, IP Centrex and High-Speed Data on Cable Networks.
San Jose, CA and Newark, NJ – September 7, 2010 – InnoMedia and Net2Phone today announced immediate plans to offer the InnoMedia ESBC 8528-4B to Net2Phone’s cable customers.
The InnoMedia ESBC 8528-4B with Smart-DQoS™ technology is the first product of its kind to address the integrated service offering needs of cable operators. It is an ideal demarcation solution to deliver SIP Trunking and hosted voice telephony as well as broadband Internet service to enterprise customers. Embedded in a cable modem supporting end-to-end QoS, the eSBC allows cable operators to immediately deliver uncompromising call quality without the need for network-based policy servers.
The ESBC 8528-4B is an Enterprise SIP Gateway (ESG) which includes embedded Session Border Controller (eSBC), among other functions for MSOs. Using B2BUA and QoS management technologies, InnoMedia’s ESBC 8528-4B is the first offering with device-initiated DQoS over DOCSIS cable networks to deliver QoS managed SIP trunks. Located at the network edge, the ESBC 8528-4B enables NAT and firewall traversal, permitting VoIP traffic to enter the network while preventing unauthorized access. The ESBC 8528-4B supports SIP normalization and ensures interoperability with enterprise customer equipment, such as an IP-PBX or IP Phones.
“We have been looking at ways to extend our service offering from our flagship VoIP residential and hosted business services products into the enterprise market space. The InnoMedia ESBC device integrated easily into our solution. We can now offer our clients a way to bridge the gap between legacy infrastructure and today’s emerging technologies to serve this market segment,” said Natasha Stone, VP Business Development at Net2Phone/IDT.
“With cable system momentum shifting from residential to enterprise, the launch of InnoMedia’s ESBC 8528-4B with Smart-DQoS™ by Net2Phone couldn’t have come at a better time,” said Shailesh Patel, Sr. Director Product Management at InnoMedia. “I am looking forward to further solidifying our relationship with Net2Phone. Utilizing our line of ATA and eMTA products, Net2Phone has delivered quality VoIP services for many years.”
The InnoMedia ESBC 8528-4B features an internal backup battery with telemetry, an external UPS port, a 4 port switch, 4 FXS POTS/fax ports, a DOCSIS 2.0 cable modem, and firewall by-pass ports. It supports Back to Back User Agent (B2BUA), SIP ALG, SIP Registrar, Profile-based SIP Header Manipulation, monitoring features, and business friendly primary line VoIP FXS ports.
