Digitcom selects Acme Packet’s Net-Net Session Director for hosted PBX and SIP trunking services

Telecom Lead America: Acme Packet, a provider of session delivery network solutions, announced that Digitcom, a leading business phone systems and data networks reseller, has deployed Acme Packet’s Net-Net Session Director to enable SureConnect by HostedPBX.ca, its new SIP trunking and hosted PBX service offerings.

The Acme Packet Net-Net Session Director session border controller provides extensive protocol interoperability and interworking functions that allowed Digitcom to accelerate time-to-market for SureConnect by HostedPBX.ca by efficiently mediating between its Class 5 softswitch and its customer premise-based IP telephony offerings. The solution enables Digitcom to offer distinctive features such as direct dialing between hosted and premise-based extensions.

Acme Packet’s extensible, standards-based solution enables multiple services — including hosted PBX and SIP trunking services — in a single platform, with common administration.

The Net-Net Session Director ensures high service availability and VoIP quality by enforcing quality of service policies, re-routing sessions around network or equipment failures, and protecting against denial-of-service attacks and other service-impacting events.

Digitcom has been certified as an authorized reseller in the Acme Packet Pinnacle Partner Program and will offer Acme Packet’s Net-Net Enterprise Session Director Server Edition (SE) and Virtual Machine Edition (VME) enterprise session border controllers for SIP trunk termination and unified communications integration functions.

These cost-effective solutions are ideal for Digitcom’s small and midsize enterprise customer base, enabling support for a wide range of customer premise-based unified communications solutions, IP-PBXs, and endpoints.
