China Unicom Deploys Acme Packet Session Border Controllers

China Unicom, one of the largest service providers in China, is deploying Acme Packet's Net-Net session border controllers in its national, multiservice converged network that connects residential and business customers. Deployment of Acme Packet's session border controllers is underway, with a target of nearly 50 cities to be installed over the next couple of months. Security features like access control and network topology hiding help protect China Unicom's own network from attack while ensuring the highest quality services to the end user. Hosted NAT traversal and multiprotocol support with interworking functionality will be key features in the second phase of the project. These features will allow China Unicom to maximize its service reach and deliver hosted IP services to both business and residential subscribers without the need for additional equipment on the customer premise.

Acme Packet's Net-Net products are being integrated with China Unicom's existing IP network and the next generation softswitch platform from Alcatel Shanghai Bell to offer more enhanced services. Alcatel Shanghai Bell is a strategic partner of Acme Packet.
