To offer IP Multimedia Subsystem based enterprise VoIP services
Acme Packet, a provider of session border control solutions, said that Chief Telecom, a subsidiary of Chunghwa Telecom, has deployed its Net-Net session border controllers (SBCs) to provide advanced, IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) based enterprise VoIP services, that includes SIP trunking, IP-Centrex, audio conferencing, video telephony, voice mail and messaging services in Taiwan
Acme Packet said that its SBCs also secure and connect Chief Telecom’s Microsoft MSN VoIP service for consumers with its international peering network.
According to Acme Packet, its Net-Net SBCs session admission control functions allows Chief Telecom to provide VoIP and interactive multimedia services with SLAs for its business customers and service provider peering partners. It also enables interoperability with IMS core infrastructure equipment and a wide array of IP-enabled customer-premise devices, allowing Chief Telecom to accommodate its business customers’ IP telephony infrastructure and changes within its own network.
In addition, Acme Packet’s Net-SAFE capabilities secure Chief Telecom’s IMS service elements by performing access control, topology hiding and denial of service (DoS/DDoS) protection from malicious attacks and non-malicious overloads, the company said.
Seamus Hourihan, vice president of product management and marketing at Acme Packet, said: “Chief Telecom is delivering innovative, telecommunication services to over 20 million customers in Taiwan, including business-critical applications and services to complex enterprise environments. Acme Packet’s SBCs play a pivotal role in helping solve the challenges that Chief Telecom faces in delivering high-quality, IMS-based, IP communication services to both its enterprise and residential customers.”
Chunghwa Telecom has used Acme Packet’s SBCs for more than four years as part of its IMS-based, fixed-line residential and mobile VoIP, and international SIP peering services.
