Lod, Israel – July 8, 2010 - AudioCodes (NasdaqGS: AUDC), a leading provider of Voice over IP (VoIP) technologies and Voice Network products, today announced UcSIPT - a solution set for converging the benefits of Microsoft Communications Server “14” and SIP Trunking services using Media Gateway and Enterprise Sessions Border Controllers.

“We have recently decided to use the AudioCodes Mediant 1000 for connecting our network to the Verizon SIP Trunking service,” said Joe LeNoach, IT Manager in Alutiiq, a wholly owned subsidiary of Afognak Native Corporation, an Alaska Native Corporation (ANC) formed under the Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act of 1971. “We were looking for a solution to securely connect the Microsoft Office Communications Servers installed in our branches using a cost-effective SIP trunking service. AudioCodes Mediant 1000 provided the required mediation services to implement this solution quickly and cost-effectively.”

“With the latest announcement of Microsoft Communications Server “14” and Microsoft Exchange Server 2010, supported by the AudioCodes Mediant 1000 and Mediant 2000 Survivable Branch Appliances, customers can now accelerate their adoption plans of the Microsoft Unified Communications architecture as their solution for enterprise voice services,” said Nimrod Borovsky, Vice President Marketing at AudioCodes. “Our years of investing in interoperability with Microsoft and with Softswitches used in SIP trunking deployments has paid off, and we can now enable customers to transparently and securely connect their Microsoft UC environment to any SIP Service provider they desire.”

The connection between the Enterprise Microsoft environment and SIP Trunking service providers is enabled by AudioCodes Enterprise products with integral Session Border Controllers capabilities.
