TMCnet VoIP Routers Week in Review
By Allison Boccamazzo, TMCnet Web Editor
This week in VoIP routers news, Patton (News - Alert) Electronics snagged yet another award for its esteemed SmartNode VoIP solution, totaling to its eleventh major industry award and third INTERNET TELEPHONY Excellence Award. The 2012 INTERNET TELEPHONY Excellence Award for its IP-communications solution delivered for the logistics and supply-chain management firm, Norbert Dentrassangle (ND), Italy operations.
The company offers a wide range of SmartNode solutions – from VoIP gateways to gateway-routers to VoIP AID and ipChannelBank products – all which provide converged-IP voice-and-data network that interconnects numerous ND facilities in the Trezzo, Italy reigion. “SmartNode equipment is so reliable, compact and flexible to implement that we decided to use only Patton VoIP devices for all our future projects,” Miranda raved in a reflective case study.
In other news, Sangoma recently released it new version 5.0 software for the NetBorder SS7 VoIP Gateway (News - Alert), which is capable of significantly improving support for MEGACO and SIGTRAN and also enables signaling, protocols and management interfaces to easily facilitate the integration of nearly any VoIP network into an SS7-based carrier network.
With the latest version of the software, network operators have the means to interconnect with a variety of public and private networks by leveraging the software’s extended support for SIGTRAN and Megaco/H.248 signaling. Also included with the latest version is support for H.323 VoIP protocol so that older VoIP networks are also easily integrated.
Wrapping up the week, Current Analysis (News - Alert) recently reported on the evolution of carrier mVoIP plays, which indicated that until recently, mobile carriers view mVoIP apps and services as a threat, as mVoIP was considered a factor that can overtax the network as well as take away profit shares.
Unlike global mVoIP services such as Skype (News - Alert), carrier mVoIP apps target a variety of market and tend to demonstrate a more varied and segmented positioning. "Some carriers have even resorted to launching smartphone apps for voice calls which are, in fact, standard circuit-switched mobile voice," observed Weston Henderek, principal analyst, consumer services U.S. at Current Analysis.
