Speakeasy gets SIP trunking, certifies ADTRAN, Fonality
Best Buy's broadband division Speakeasy has added SIP trunking to its bag of tricks. The company plans to certify eight major IP PBX vendors, with ADTRAN and Fonality winning first approval.
Under Monday's announcement, ADTRAN's Netvanta 7100 and Fonality trixbox Community Edition (CE) got the nod. The approvals may ultimately signal deeper relationships between Speakeasy and the two companies, since ADTRAN wants to leverage the SMB market in a big way this year and Fonality and Speakeasy are triangulated by a Dell relationship of sorts; Fonality sells a solution on Dell hardware while Speakeasy's parent Best Buy sells Dell in its stores.
In addition the company announced that it was adding an integrated voice service over Ethernet service, with offerings at 3, 5, and 10 Mbps symmetrical bandwidth. The 10 Mbps offering will support up to 48 concurrent calls using standard codecs; more if you use an optional G.729 voice codec.
