Sonus-Based Networks Surpass Half Trillion Minute Milestone

Sonus-based networks have carried more than half trillion minutes of IP-based voice traffic.

Sonus Networks said this half trillion minute milestone demonstrates the rapid growth in IP traffic and the increasing migration by network operators globally to IP-based voice solutions. The company claims nearly 40% market share for carrier VoIP infrastructure, according to market researcher iLocus.

"The pace of deployments and migration of traffic onto IP-based voice solutions is continuing to accelerate. It took 5 years to reach the first 100 billion minutes of IP-voice traffic, but in just the last 1.5 years, we've been able to increase that amount 5x to more than a half trillion minutes on Sonus-based networks alone," said Hassan Ahmed, chairman and CEO, Sonus Networks.
