Acme Packet Net-Net Session Director session border controllers deployed by Bouygues Telecom
May 23, 2012 (Menafn - TELECOMWORLDWIRE via COMTEX) --Session delivery networks provider Acme Packet APKT announced on Wednesday that French fixed and mobile services provider Bouygues Telecom is deploying its Net-Net Session Director session border controllers (SBCs) in its IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) network, supplied and integrated by Alcatel-Lucent ALU.
No financial details were disclosed.
Bouygues Telecom is deploying IMS to support multiple services, including migration of existing residential voice to voice over IP (VoIP), interconnecting with other service providers and launching new services, such as visual voice mail.
Acme Packet said that its SBCs fulfill numerous IMS functions at both the access and interconnect borders, ensuring security, interoperability and quality in the network.
In the access network, SBCs provide the Proxy-Call Session Control Function (P-CSCF) and IMS-Access Gateway Function (AGW) for securing, interoperating and controlling all SIP-based services to subscribers. The Net-Net Session Director provides Interconnect Border Control Function (I-BCF) and the Transition Gateway (TrGW) for controlling fixed and mobile SIP traffic at interconnect borders, encompassing internal interconnection between Bouygues' fixed and mobile networks as well as between the IMS network and other service providers.
In addition, Net-SAFE, Acme Packet's security framework, provides denial of service (DoS) attack prevention, topology hiding and access control to protect Bouygues Telecom's IMS network and ensure service availability. Other features include accounting for billing and traffic planning, as well as admission control, routing, and quality of service marking for service level agreement assurance.
