Etisalat Lanka Selects Acme Packet

December 11, 2010 Leave a comment Go to comments

Etisalat Lanka, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the United Arab Emirates-based Etisalat Telecommunications Corporation, selected Acme Packet Net-Net session border controllers (SBCs) to support its IP interconnects for international calls.

Officials with Acme Packet said that Etisalat Lanka uses IP interconnects to enhance international voice traffic and selected the company to secure and optimize those connections for expansion.

The deployment of SBCs also complements Etisalat Lanka’s migration to all-IP networks for lower total cost of ownership and the delivery of new services.

“Acme Packet provides Etisalat Lanka with the means to securely and efficiently grow our IP interconnects so we can maximize revenue,” said Sanath Pilapitiya, CTO of Etisalat Lanka, in a statement.

Pilapitiya said that with the Net-Net SBCs the company has the industry’s leading security and control functions for the international VoIP traffic.

Company officials said that Etisalat Lanka selected Acme Packet’s Net-Net 3820 Session Director to improve revenue from international calls by increasing call completion rates and providing fault tolerance and resiliency for the network by detecting and routing around network failures.

The Net-Net SBC SIP header manipulation feature enables wider interoperability and expedites time to market. Call detail records and quality of service (QoS) monitoring provide real-time information on quality of calls in the network for reporting, planning and settlement.

According to company officials, with Acme Packet’s policy-based routing features, Etisalat Lanka has the flexibility to implement QoS-based and codec-based routing to further optimize the network in the future.

“Mobile service providers are making the transition to IP interconnects to drive down costs and prepare for the all-IP future,” said Sumant Sharma, managing director of Asia Pacific region for Acme Packet.

Sharma said that Etisalat Lanka is an early mover in this regard and uses Acme Packet’s rich feature set to optimize its IP interconnections.

Acme Packet, a major player in session border control solutions, enables the delivery of trusted, first-class interactive communications—voice, video and multimedia sessions—and data services across IP network borders.

The Net-Net SBCs were installed by MillenniumESP, an Acme Packet channel and integration partner in Sri Lanka. MillenniumESP pioneered the deployment of SBCs in Sri Lanka and has been a leading solutions provider for service providers in the areas of voice over IP, core networks, security and data center technologies.

“We are pleased that Etisalat Lanka chose MillenniumESP to provide for their next generation IP interconnect needs,” said Faiq Faaiz, executive vice president of MillenniumIT. “I am confident that Etisalat Lanka will benefit immensely from the vast experience of MillenniumESP in the area of session border controllers in providing future next generation network services.”
