EVOX Selects Sonus Session Border Controllers To Expand VoIP Services In Hard-to-Reach Areas Of Africa

Sonus Networks, Inc. (Nasdaq: SONS), a global leader in SIP communications, today announced that EVOX Trading, a leading telecommunications provider delivering services across Africa, has selected the Sonus SBC 5200 to secure its network border, deliver voice termination services and provide interconnect capabilities to its carrier partners. With the deployment of the SBC 5200, EVOX will immediately increase its service capacity by 40 percent, enabling them to deliver communication access in some of Africa’s fastest growing markets.

The uptake of VoIP, which has been deregulating across many African countries since mid-2000, is often linked to growing economies with the delivery of advanced voice services and more cost effective access to rural and under-served areas. EVOX found that countries across Africa were aggressively seeking more reliable, scalable and higher performing VoIP and SIP services. As a result, EVOX sought a new platform to help them meet this growing requirement.

EVOX chose the SBC 5200 because the solution addressed the next-generation needs of VoIP and SIP communications with security, media switching and transcoding services in a single scalable device. This infrastructure will also provide an intelligent SIP interconnection capability between EVOX and their carrier partner networks. The SBC 5200 supports up to 64,000 sessions on a single server and provides advanced routing and integrated transcoding capability.

The Sonus SBC portfolio is the fastest growing on the market and is positioned in the Leaders quadrant of the “Magic Quadrant for Session Border Controllers,” published October 9, 2012 by Gartner, Inc.


“We have seen growing demand for next generation VoIP and SIP services in Africa and we chose Sonus to provide us with the secure, reliable, scalable solution that doing business across the continent demands,” said Romain BOULET, sales director, EVOX. “The performance and flexibility of the Sonus solution means we can provide new services and greater capacity to customers and partners in the region and help accelerate Africa as an emerging market.”
