Telefónica selects Acme Packet to offer IMS-based VoIP services

Acme Packet’s Net-Net SD to meet functional requirements of Telefónica’s IMS services network

By CBR Staff Writer

Acme Packet has revealed that Telefónica O2 Germany has selected its session border controllers (SBCs) to provide IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) functionality at its access and interconnect borders. The Acme Packet Net-Net Session Director (SD) enables Telefónica to deploy an interoperable IMS network supporting residential retail and wholesale VoIP services and IP interconnects with other service providers.

Karsten Schroeder of Telefónica O2 Germany, said: “Acme Packet’s market-leading SBCs, combined with the company’s experience in delivering essential IMS functionality, made them the best choice for us. Acme Packet is an integral part of our next-generation network migration, providing the necessary tools to roll out flexible, reliable and scalable IMS-based services to our residential retail and wholesale customers.”

Telefónica said that it has selected Acme Packet’s Net-Net 4500 SD to meet 3GPP IMS functional requirements at the access and interconnect borders of its network. The Net-Net SBCs are part of an IMS network that reportedly replaces an older VoIP platform and enables Telefónica to offer VoIP services to its residential customers and wholesale hosted residential VoIP services to other service providers.

Net-SAFE, Acme Packet’s security framework, provides denial of service (DoS) attack prevention, topology hiding and access control to protect Telefónica’s IMS network and ensure service availability, the companies said.
