San Jose, CA (PRWEB) March 14, 2006 –
CommuniGate Systems, the leader in scalable carrier-class Internet Communications solutions, today announced a partnership with Navtel Communications Inc., a leading developer of test equipment for the laboratories of network equipment manufacturers and operators. The companies are working together to ensure customers receive the highest levels of reliability, performance and Quality of Service (QoS) for CommuniGate Pro (CGP) SIP Farm, a patent-pending technology for clustering voice-over-IP (VoIP).
CommuniGate and Navtel will join forces to detail CGP VoIP performance for registration, call completion, and SIP and media proxying, to be used by customers in sizing and implementing large-scale deployments of SIP-based VoIP to telco-level capacities. CommuniGate’s multi-node, all-active SIP Farm technology makes it possible to host millions of subscribers while providing 99.999% uptime, redundancy and scalability, and allowing customers to just add additional SIP Farm nodes as the subscriber base grows over time.
Carriers will utilize the partnership to assure best practices for deployment of the CommuniGate Pro SIP Farm in Tier2 and Tier1 class deployments. Often, carriers must determine the interoperability of end point devices, switches and connectivity latency. Navtel will provide CommuniGate customers with the industry’s most realistic emulation environment in combination with an extensive set of troubleshooting diagnostics.
“By working with Navtel, CommuniGate is able to leverage the industry’s most advanced testing solution used by network operators, ensuring its SIP Farm offers the best possible VoIP performance and QoS in the industry,” said Alvin Francis, director of marketing for Navtel. “As VoIP adoption grows, it becomes critical for service providers to offer a reliable and scalable voice solution that can expand as their subscriber base increases. After completing testing using the InterWatch, CommuniGate Pro’s SIP Farm will be able to independently prove its advanced VoIP functionality, performance and scalability.”
“To date, carriers have found it difficult to manage and deploy IP-based real-time communications systems because calculating the subscriber load can be complex. Through our real-world testing using Navtel’s advanced solution, we are confident that telecom carriers will be able to handle the increase in worldwide VoIP adoption,” said Jon Doyle, vice president of business development at CommuniGate Systems.
