Nortel Intros Centralized SIP Engine Capability

By Anuradha Shukla, TMCnet Contributor

Session Initiation Protocol (News - Alert) "SIP" plays a key role in 3G VoIP networks based on IPv6.


As an application-layer control or, "signaling," protocol for creating, modifying, and terminating sessions with one or more participants. These sessions include Internet telephone calls, multimedia distribution, and multimedia conferences.


At this weeks Cable Show 2010, Nortel Carrier VoIP and Application Solutions will explain how the company continues to innovate and improve service provider competitive advantage through its industry-leading carrier voice and multimedia product offerings.


Nortel (News - Alert) CVAS recently unveiled a new centralized SIP engine capability to its state-of-the art Communication Server 2000 carrier VoIP and multimedia softswitch and Adaptive Application Engine that has been embraced by service providers across the globe.


This new centralized SIP engine capability allows service providers to quickly and cost-effectively deliver advanced SIP services and applications to subscribers, including services such as unified communications, Web-based UC collaboration, video and multimedia conferencing, hosted call center and other services that improve the way people communicate and conduct business.


In addition, it allows service providers to deliver SIP and non SIP communication capabilities across the entire network using one Adaptive Application Engine.


Competitive stand alone application servers can only serve SIP subscribers without support for legacy lines/trunks or services interworking, resulting in isolated service islands with reduced capabilities and requiring significant network integration costs.


In addition, the new capability can be deployed at a single CS 2000 node to extend SIP services to additional CS 2000 nodes in a service provider's network and helps to lower total operational costs for the carrier.
