VoIP Routers Week in Review
By Ed Silverstein, TMCnet Contributor
It was a busy week in the VoIP Routers sector. Here are some of the major stories.
Recently, a group of 39 people were arrested in the city of Uttara, Bangladesh – with a connection to Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP). The Rapid Action Battalion (Rab), an anti-terrorism unit of the Bangladesh Police, seized a house that held, what the Bangladeshi newspaper, The Daily Star, describes as a "huge quantity of illegal VoIP equipment." Habibur Rahman, a Rab spokesman, said the unit seized VoIP equipment worth around 1 crore, which is roughly $214,431. The gang used landlines and the Internet to operate the illegal VoIP business. The group had been transmitting calls bypassing the proper channel, which violates the rules of the Bangladesh Telecommunication Regulatory. They'd been running the business for at least the last year and a half, disguising themselves as apparel traders.
In another story, Patton Electronics, a VoIP router and gateway solutions provider, in conjunction with Patton (News - Alert)-Inalp Networks AG and in partnership with German network-management software developer Axiros, has announced Patton Element Management System (Patton EMS or PEMS) for the company’s SmartNode VoIP Media Gateways and other VoIP Customer Premise Equipment (CPE). The Patton EMS solution provides touch-less configuration and turn-up for SmartNode and third-party VoIP CPE, employing Automatic Configuration Server (ACS (News - Alert)) functionality as specified by the carrier standard TR069.
It was also reported how Matrix, a player in telecom and security solutions for small- and medium-sized businesses, as well as enterprises, and Vitelity, a SIP trunk-based solution provider, have joined hands to address the transition to VoIP from PRI and analog line. By working closely together, both organizations are able to support system integrators and value added resellers more efficiently.
Virgin Media (News - Alert) Business has extended its existing partnership with The London Grid for Learning (LGfL) to encompass public sector networks. The new partnership will be valid until 2028. The original partnership between the two organizations commenced in 2011 when Virgin Media Business took over an existing contract with LGfL from Synetrix (News - Alert) to provide enhanced broadband services to schools in London. Over the last two years, Virgin Media Business has provided broadband services to nearly 2,000 schools at around one-third of the cost involved in the agreement with Synetrix.
