Plans to add Acme Packet session border controller to allow IP interconnection with national service providers
Russia-based OSS Telecom has selected Acme Packet’s Net-Net 4250 session border controller to expand the capacity and reach of its national network, maximize quality-of-service and reduce cost.
Currently, OSS Telecom has deployed Acme Packet’s Net-Net 4250 in Moscow, St Petersburg, Ekaterinburg and Vladivostok, and plans to add Acme Packet session border controller (SBC) in Saratov, Novosibirsk and Rostov-on-Don to allow IP interconnection with other national service providers, said Acme Packet.
According to Acme Packet, in addition to the ability to support OSS Telecom’s expected growth, the Net-Net 4250 provides check-pointing of signaling, media and configuration state for non-stop SBC operation, which was critical in OSS Telecom’s decision to replace their existing router-based SBC.
Acme Packet’s Net-Safe security architecture also provides missing protection against outages caused by DoS/DDoS attacks and service overloads. The Net-Net 4250’s load balancing capabilities adds scalability and redundancy to OSS Telecom’s softswitches.
Seamus Hourihan, vice president of marketing and product management for Acme Packet, said: Our Net-Net 4250 SBCs meet OSS Telecom’s requirement for a simple, feature-rich and proven SBC solution for expanding its wholesale voice service network. This same platform will also enable them to quickly and confidently expand their services beyond voice to interactive video.
