Calltrade Carrier Services Interconnects with Sonus Session Border Controllers
WESTFORD, Mass. --(Business Wire)--
Networks, Inc. (Nasdaq: SONS), a global
leader in SIP communications, today announced that Switzerland-based
competitive operator Calltrade Carrier Services AG is using the Sonus
SBC 5000 Series of Session Border Controllers as part of its wholesale
voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) service. The Sonus SBCs are being
deployed at Calltrade interconnect borders - demarcation points where
two networks meet - to secure the network borders as well as monitor and
enforce service levels.
As an international communications provider, Calltrade terminates more
than 15 billion minutes of voice traffic per year for fixed-line
providers, mobile phone companies and cable companies worldwide.
Calltrade is networked with more than 150 telecommunications carriers
across the globe, including nearly all of the world's leading
international carriers. To support Calltrade's global footprint, the
Sonus SBC 5200 Series delivers advanced media services and protocol
interworking to ensure seamless interoperability with other service
The SBC 5200 Series supports up to 64,000 sessions on a single server
and provides advanced routing and integrated transcoding capability. As
the number and variety of devices connecting to the network increase,
the SBC 5200 Series acts as a VoIP translator in the Calltrade network,
ensuring that two devices with different codecs communicate properly. In
addition, the Sonus SBCs enable high quality of service levels by
adjusting bandwidth as voice, video and data cross the Calltrade network
to ensure calls or sessions are completed without performance issues.
Ensuring interoperability with other services, devices and endpoints on
the network helps Calltrade increase revenues by offering interconnect,
transcoding and advanced routing services to customers and partners
"Terminating more than 15 billion minutes of traffic per year requires a
Session Border Controller that can scale on-demand as our business

supporting VoIP and SIP communications with high levels of security,
media switching and transcoding services in a single, scalable device.
Sonus SBCs provide exceptional transcoding functionality that no other
SBC vendor is able to deliver," said Daniel Groth, president and chief
executive officer, Calltrade Carrier Services AG.
