Founded in 1994, 013 NetVision was Israel’s earliest Internet service provider. To help its employees communicate better internally and reduce costs, 013 NetVision had deployed messaging and collaboration solutions based on Microsoft technologies. At its main data center, which serves its call center and IT department, 013 NetVision deployed a front-end server, an Audio/Video Conferencing server, a Mediation Server, and an AudioCodes gateway. To connect Office Communications Server to its Nortel PBX so that employees could place and receive calls, the company used an AudioCodes gateway. To provide redundant enterprise voice capabilities for more employees, 013 NetVision decided to deploy Microsoft Lync Server 2010. At its secondary site, 013 NetVision will also consider replacing its Mediation Server with an AudioCodes survivable branch appliance (SBA), which is based on cost-effective media gateways hosting the Microsoft Survivable Branch Appliance software package. The SBA provides a public-switched telephone network connection that continues to provide communications capabilities in the event of wide-area network failure. With the SBA at the secondary site, the company can ensure better redundancy for enterprise voice users at its headquarters.
