South Africa's Internet Solutions Selects Acme Packet

Dimension Data selected Acme Packet's Net-Net session border controllers to deploy at Internet Solutions (Pty) Ltd, a South African converged communications provider, to deliver VoIP business services. The new suite of services, called Voice over IS (VoIS), was launched earlier this year and has a number of live customers.

Acme Packet's Net-Net session border controllers (SBC) have been installed since the summer and are deployed in 5 of Internet Solutions' PoPs in Johannesburg, Durban, Cape Town, London and New York City. In this role, the SBCs' enable Internet Solutions to protect their network resources and extend their service reach and revenue potential. The features used include topology hiding, service theft protection, call admission control, hosted NAT traversal and H.323 to SIP interworking.
