Sonus Announces an IP Packet Exchange Solution for Fixed and Mobile Markets

Low-Cost, High-Capacity, Feature-Rich IPX Solution for Interconnect Providers



Westford, Mass., May 25, 2011 Sonus Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ:SONS, news, filings), a market leader in next-generation IP-based network solutions , today announced the availability of an IP Packet Exchange (IPX) solution for fixed and mobile networks. The Sonus solution supports IPX features defined by industry organizations such as i3Forum and GSMA, along with session-aware value-added features that Sonus has defined. These features fall into three broad categories: signaling interworking, media transcoding and centralized routing and policy.

This solution leverages the common software base of Sonus’s NBS9000™ and NBS5200™ session border controllers , which form its core. The NBS products are complemented by the Sonus Network Analytics Suite , which actively monitors the customer’s quality of experience, and the PSX™ Centralized Routing and Policy Server that supports intelligent policy-based routing. Sonus’s NBS family of session border controllers provide robust session control, media transcoding and security for both legacy networks in transition and the next generation of pure IP communications. Both the NBS5200 and NBS9000 have received Performance Verified Certification from Miercom Labs to deliver extraordinary performance even under the most adverse of conditions.

As mobile operators start to deploy 4G LTE networks, service-aware IPX service will play an increasingly important role in enabling roaming. Similarly, in fixed networks, the migration from TDM to IP will increase the need for service-aware IPX capability.

“BICS is constantly seeking to remain at the forefront and is offering its customers a feature-rich IPX solution,” said Pierre-André Rulmont, CTO of BICS a Belgacom company. “It is therefore important for us to be able to count upon a good supplier for the underlying technology, which Sonus has proven to be. We are very pleased with the overall functionalities as well as the performance results of the Sonus IPX solution running on the NBS family of session border controllers.”

The Sonus IPX solution delivers the functionality that Interconnect Providers need to maximize the benefits of their IPX deployment: robust security, efficient QoS control, SLA-based call admission control, and CDR generation. Additional IPX features supported include a range of signaling interworking, wireline, wireless, and high-definition (HD) media transcoding, 3GPP standards conformance, IPV4/IPV6 transport and services interworking, robust overload handling, and enhanced routing. The Sonus solution allows IPX Providers to offer ENUM services.

“The value-added features in our SBC products go well beyond the connectivity and security offered by a stand-alone SBC,” said David Tipping, vice president of product management and marketing at Sonus. “The IPX solution is an example of how the inherent capabilities of our SBC can be utilized to provide additional value to the customer.”
