Lod, Israel – September 10th, 2014 – AudioCodes (NasdaqGS: AUDC) Press Release
AudioCodes, a leading provider of converged voice solutions that enable enterprises and service providers to transition to all-IP voice networks, today announced that Hong Kong Broadband Network, one of the largest broadband operators in Hong Kong, has deployed AudioCodes Mediant 4000 Session Border Controllers (SBC) as part of a major upgrade to the company’s fixed-line VAS services platform. AudioCodes’ Mediant 4000 SBCs were deployed, sitting between a Genband Soft-switch and an Interactive Intelligence IVR platform, to provide DTMF transcoding as well as voice codec transcoding. The Mediant 4000 is fitted with High Availability, including redundancy, survivability and resiliency features to ensure connectivity under all circumstances.
Hong Kong Broadband Network, owner and operator of one of the largest fiber optic networks in Hong Kong, found itself with a need to upgrade its older Nortel system with equipment that would ensure support of the company’s move to SIP trunking as well as IMS features. The deployment requires SBCs with considerable interoperability capabilities, to both interface with the Genband equipment at the core, as well as the many types of TDM/IP PBXs at the various enterprise sites.
“Having been familiar with AudioCodes’ solutions and impressed by the quality of its products, it was natural that we would collaborate with AudioCodes to play a central role in this important project,” said Kent Kwong, Manager – IT of Hong Kong Broadband Network. “We were especially impressed with the broad range of interoperability options supported by the AudioCodes SBC. Given the way our network is set up, this interoperability is a critical factor in the success of the deployment.”
“Hong Kong Broadband Network is a very important player in the broadband market with whom we have shared an excellent relationship,” said Nimrod Borovsky, AudioCodes’ VP Marketing. “The upgrade of their fixed-line VAS services platform is a major project and our solution not only performs with the high level of quality and reliability they require, but also offers Hong Kong Broadband Network a flexible and scalable platform which they could easily get off the ground and expand over time.”
