announces that Etisalat Lanka is deploying Acme Packet Net-Net session border controllers to support its IP interconnects for international calls. Etisalat Lanka uses IP interconnects to enhance international voice traffic and selected Acme Packet to secure and optimize those connections for expansion. The deployment of SBCs also complements Etisalat Lanka’s migration to all-IP networks for lower total cost of ownership and the delivery of new services.
Etisalat Lanka selected Acme Packet’s Net-Net 3820 Session Director to improve revenue from international calls by increasing call completion rates and providing fault tolerance and resiliency for the network by detecting and routing around network failures. The Net-Net SBC SIP header manipulation feature enables wider interoperability and expedites time to market. Call detail records and quality of service monitoring provide real-time information on quality of calls in the network for reporting, planning and settlement.
With Acme Packet’s policy-based routing features, Etisalat Lanka has the flexibility to implement QoS-based and codec-based routing to further optimize the network in the future.
The Net-Net SBCs were installed by MillenniumESP, an Acme Packet channel and integration partner in Sri Lanka. MillenniumESP pioneered the deployment of SBCs in Sri Lanka and has been a leading solutions provider for service providers in the areas of voice over IP, core networks, security and data center technologies.
