MILPITAS, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/12/14 -- InnoMedia, the leader in Embedded Enterprise Session Border Controller (ESBC) technology, today announced broadened adoption by Buckeye TeleSystem of the InnoMedia ESBC line for its SIP trunk offering.
SIP trunks provide the same level of quality at a much lower price per circuit when compared to conventional analog phone circuits and are incrementally scalable in real time without the need to install new lines. Using InnoMedia's PRI capable ESBCs, enterprises with in-house TDM PBX phone systems will accrue all the benefits of SIP trunking without having to replace their existing PBX and telephone sets.
The InnoMedia ESBCs allow service operators to deliver scalable, QoS-managed SIP Trunking and Hosted PBX services to their business customers. For enterprises utilizing a TDM PBX today, the InnoMedia ESBC with PRI includes a SIP ALG and B2BUA capability that offers a simple migration path to Hosted deployments and full end-to-end SIP trunking without the service operator having to replace customer premise equipment.
"We've enjoyed great success with InnoMedia ESBCs connected to our network," said Adam Hashi, Manager of VoIP Engineering for Buckeye TeleSystem. "Exclusively using the InnoMedia ESBC, Buckeye Telesystems is successfully offering enterprises the benefits of SIP trunks regardless of whether they have IP Phones, IP PBXs or a traditional TDM PBX."
"We are proud to have partnered with Buckeye TeleSystem to provide SIP trunk services for several years with great success," said Shailesh Patel, Senior Director of Product Management at InnoMedia. "SIP trunking adoption is growing rapidly and we are proud to be in the forefront of that technology with our comprehensive line of ESBCs, which includes support for one or multiple PRIs."
InnoMedia ESBCs have been successfully deployed commercially since 2011. All models of the InnoMedia ESBC have an internal battery backup, complete session border control features and 911 support. The telephony features of the ESBC include reliable fax with T.38, POS friendly features including high/low-speed modem support, two B Channel Call Transfer (TBCT) and RLT support. Furthermore, the ESBC offers carrier grade diagnostics and is highly manageable with auto-provisioning and device management.

Connected devices and the Internet of Things are getting significant momentum in 2014. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Hunter, Chief Scientist & Technology Evangelist at Greenwave Systems, examined three key elements that together will drive mass adoption of the IoT before the end of 2015. The first element is the recent advent of robust open source protocols (like AllJoyn and WebRTC) that facilitate M2M communication. The second is broad availability of flexible, cost-effective ...

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happe...

We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will w...

When an enterprise builds a hybrid IaaS cloud connecting its data center to one or more public clouds, security is often a major topic along with the other challenges involved. Security is closely intertwined with the networking choices made for the hybrid cloud. Traditional networking approaches for building a hybrid cloud try to kludge together the enterprise infrastructure with the public cloud. Consequently this approach requires risky, deep "surgery" including changes to firewalls, subnets...

DevOps is all about agility. However, you don't want to be on a high-speed bus to nowhere. The right DevOps approach controls velocity with a tight feedback loop that not only consists of operational data but also incorporates business context. With a business context in the decision making, the right business priorities are incorporated, which results in a higher value creation. In his session at DevOps Summit, Todd Rader, Solutions Architect at AppDynamics, discussed key monitoring techniques...

The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, discussed single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series dat...

Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using ...
