Fonality selects Sonus SBC platform to enhance network


Hosted VoIP and unified communications provider Fonality said it will use a Session Border Controller solution from Sonus Networks (Nasdaq: SONS) to enhance the performance, reliability and capability of its cloud-hosted VoIP and Unified Communications (UC) network.

Sonus said its SBC 5200 session border controllers were selected for their ability to scale and enable all types of SIP traffic.

Fonality will also deploy Sonus NetScore, a network performance analyzer that enables service providers and enterprises to monitor and adjust operational efficiencies.

Fonality offers small and mid-size businesses across North America, Australia and Japan fully cloud-hosted VoIP, UC and contact center services as well as hybrid cloud-managed, premise-based IP-PBX, UC and contact center solutions.

The new customer deal is a big win for Sonus, which steadily has been increasing its share of the SBC market.

In April, Infonetics Research said Sonus' SBC business revenue grow at almost four times the pace of its competition, increasing 58.5 percent year-over-year. Infonetics said the company's share of the SBC service provider market grew to 19.6 percent in the fourth quarter.
