announced that Voice over IP (VoIP) carrier CTI (Communication Technology Inc.)
has selected Netrake to support its launch of VoIP services throughout the Caribbean region. Netrake's nCite session border controller provides CTI with secure traversal of firewall and network address translation (FW/NAT) systems, as well as denial of service (DOS) attack prevention through deep packet inspection at both the SIP signaling and VoIP media layers. Netrake's session controllers also provide end-to-end quality of service (QoS) assurance and SLA enforcement for each call across network borders.
CTI employs Netrake's nCite session border controllers to provide enterprise and wholesale VoIP services across the United States, the Caribbean and Latin America. Based in Miami, Fla., CTI is offering lower cost yet feature rich residential & enterprise VoIP services. Additionally, CTI will leverage its extensive IP network to offer termination services to local carriers around the region, thereby providing those carriers with competitive pricing. CTI will also be able to offer users their own Virtual Private Network (VPN) for delivering calls on and off of the public switched telephone network (PSTN), such as 'landing' calls from one nation's PSTN to another nation's PSTN, as well as utilizing a unique four (4) digit dialing plan worldwide.
"Netrake answered our needs for scalability, reliability, security, manageability and protocol flexibility across both retail and wholesale segments," said Peter Reynolds, director of network services for CTI. "The nCite SBCs give us a heightened level of confidence and security to our network as we bring a rich set of new, advanced VoIP services to a diverse marketplace."
"CTI joins the growing number of service providers worldwide that are deploying Netrake nCite session border controllers for residential VoIP applications," said Bruce Hill, president and CEO, Netrake. "This is testament to the fact that the Netrake product family meets all of the border requirements for IP networks in terms of features, functionality, economics, performance and capacity, all in a high availability solution."
