|Includes: Ribbon Communications Inc. (RBBN)

Sonus Networks, a leader in SIP communications worldwide and the fastest growing brand of session border controllers, announced today that Smarttel Technologies, a Bangladesh-based international carrier wholesale operator, will be deploying the Sonus SBC 5100 Session Border Controller (SBC) as the Session Initiation Protocal (SIP) interconnect platform for its global network. Specifically, the Sonus SBCs are being deployed at Smarttel interconnect borders for security purposes, as well as to monitor and enforce service levels. Smarttel interconnect borders are demarcation points where two networks meet. This deployment marks Smarttel's first of Sonus SBCs and will be Sonus' first entry into the SBC market in Bangledesh.

"Smarttel's deployment of Sonus SBCs signifies the increasing awareness that businesses in Asia Pacific have that the future of communications is grounded in SIP," said Pierre-Jean Chalon, vice president and general manager, Asia Pacific Sales, Sonus. "The Sonus SBC 5100 meets the next-generation needs of SIP communications by delivering interworking, embedded media transcoding, robust security and advanced call routing in a high-performance, small form-factor device. We are proud that Smarttel trusts Sonus' advanced SBCs to help the company capitalize on a growing demand for SIP services."

The Sonus SBC 5100, designed to deliver an intelligent interconnection between Smarttel and its partner networks, is a stellar combination of security, media switching, and transcoding services in a single scalable device. The Sonus SBC 5100 is capable of providing 250 to 10,000 sessions on a single server. Smarttel was looking for a high performing product that could secure its network borders, enforce quality of service policies, traverse intermediate network address translation and firewalls, ensure regulatory compliance, deliver the essential transcoding of media and provide codec, dual-tone multi-frequency, and fax networking.

"Our business continues to grow at a rapid pace, and we needed a session border controller that will scale as our business demands change, without compromising on performance," said Anwarul Abedin Manik, chief executive officer, Smarttel Technologies Ltd. "Deploying Sonus session border controllers helps us deliver cost-efficient, high-quality termination for our customers. The industry-leading performance and scale of Sonus' SBC 5100 allows us to maintain a competitive edge in the market while delivering exceptional customer service."
