Atlanta, Georgia (PRWEB) June 26, 2006
TransNexus and Emergent Network Solutions (http://www.emergent-netsolutions.com) have certified the Entice Session Border Controller and NexSRS certificate authority and settlement server are fully interoperable for secure VoIP peering. The combined solution uses Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) services for secure peer to peer access control and settlement accounting among interconnect peers. Secure VoIP peering enables VoIP wholesalers, VoIP clearinghouses, IP transport providers and network co-location providers to increase customer loyalty and generate new revenues from peer to peer VoIP traffic.
Secure VoIP peering for Entice includes two new features which eliminate interconnect fraud risk and settlement disputes. First, digitally signed tokens included with each call setup ensure secure peer to peer access control. Second, real time collection of encrypted call detail records from both source and destination peers eliminate interconnect settlement billing disputes. To enable secure VoIP peering, the Entice Session Border Controller communicates with the NexSRS settlement server using the OSP peering protocol – an operations and billing support (OSS/BSS) protocol standard defined by the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI). The OSP peering protocol, designed for secure clearing and settlement of peer to peer applications such as VoIP and video, is supported by a growing variety of VoIP platforms, such as Cisco, Veraz, Asterisk, SIP Express Router and OpenSER.
"We are pleased to certify that the TransNexus OSS/ BSS software platform is fully compatible with the Entice Session Border Controller. Our partnership with Emergent offers TransNexus customers new alternatives for VoIP protocol inter-working and interoperability," said Jim Dalton CEO of TransNexus.
TransNexus has been an innovator of commercial and open source VoIP Operations and Billing Support Systems (OSS/BSS) since 1997. Deployment of the TransNexus OSS/BSS solution provides wholesale VoIP carriers with an immediate increase in operational profits. Key features include Least Cost Routing, Quality of Service Routing, secure inter-domain VoIP peering, traffic analysis and control, management reports, new revenues from wholesale services and lower cost back-office operations.
