Verizon Certifies Acme Packet Enterprise Session Border Controllers to Work with Verizon SIP Trunking Services and Microsoft Lync Server 2010

November 09, 2012

The session delivery networks solutions provider, Acme packet announced that its Net-Net Enterprise Session Director (ESD) enterprise session border controllers have achieved Verizon certification.

Thanks to the certification, Acme Packet Net-Net will now work with Verizon’s IP Trunking Services and Microsoft (News - Alert) Lync Server 2010, making it easier for businesses to employ unified communications across a global enterprise. With this important certification, Acme Packet gains vital unified communications capabilities to offer secure, simplified SIP trunking to its partners and end customers. The compatibility with Acme Packet (News - Alert) and Microsoft Lync will enable Verizon customers to control costs and consolidate their networks, according to Acme Packet.

The Acme Packet Net-Net ESD provides key session control and internetworking functions that enable customers to integrate Microsoft Lync with legacy multi-vendor communications environments without compromising Microsoft Lync’s powerful enterprise voice features.

The certification is part of Acme Packet’s strategy to simplify and accelerate SIP trunking, which Acme Packet announced earlier this year. The move will enable both Acme Packet and Verizon (News - Alert) to offer managed and non-managed session delivery network solutions to customers in more than 20 countries. 

With Verizon the VoIP IP Trunking service coming complete with the Acme Packet and Microsoft Lync 2010 configuration, Verizon customers will be able to deploy interactive voice and video communications onto a common IP backbone. This will enable the enterprise customers to streamline their operations, achieve cost-reduction and enjoy enhanced worker productivity through improved collaboration.

“We’re seeing a notable increase in the number of businesses interested in combining Microsoft Lync with our IP Trunking with the added benefit of Acme Packet’s premises-based SBC. The Verizon IP Trunking service delivers compelling cost efficiencies with features such as burstable enterprise shared trunks and VoIP enterprise routing to generate cost savings that can be reinvested to fund new unified communications capabilities,” executive director of advanced communications product management for Verizon Enterprise Solutions, Bob Minai noted in a statement.
