Kabel Deutschland deploys Acme Packet for voice offering
Burlington, Mass.-based Acme Packet today announced that Kabel Deutschland GmbH (KDG), Germany's largest triple play provider, has deployed Acme Packet’s Net-Net session border controllers (SBCs) on multiple hardware platforms.
Acme said its SBCs are being used to deliver IP interactive communications to KDG’s residential customers and secure IP interconnects to other service providers.
Acme Packet’s Net-Net SBCs are deployed to provide additional security, service reach maximization and SLA assurance for KDG’s recently implemented Kabel Phone service.
As one example of how its platform is being used, Acme’s Net-Net 9200 secures KDG’s interconnect borders and enables interoperability with other service provider networks to maximize its service reach.
“Acme Packet’s session border controllers and its support organization enabled us to go-to-market quickly with a compelling new voice product,” said Thorsten Waschkeit, head of voice engineering from Kabel Deutschland. “The hardware flexibility of the Net-Net SBCs, along with an unmatched session border control feature set, enables KDG to support our goals to deliver high customer satisfaction and create a competitive edge.”
