Axtel is a Mexican telecommunications company based in Monterrey that was created in 2016. Axtel serves the enterprise, government and residential markets with a diverse portfolio of solutions through its brands Alestra (enterprise and government services) and Axtel (residential and small businesses services). With a network infrastructure of over 42,000 km of fiber and more than 7,000 square meters of data center, Axtel helps organizations to be more productive and brings people together to improve their quality of life.
As part of their drive to launch a new all-IP service, Axtel needed a secure and resilient SIP trunking solution with extensive interoperability to enable effortless connectivity with virtually any IP-PBX. It was also imperative for them to find a broadly scalable solution that could easily meet their current and future capacity needs.
AudioCodes’ Mediant SBCs were Axtel’s favored choice. Their extensive interoperability, interworking and security functions allow Axtel to accelerate its UC and SIP trunking offering by efficiently mediating between its business customers, UC platform and SIP trunking infrastructure.
