MTN Business Delivers Cost-Effective Hosted VoIP and SIP Trunking Services with Acme Packet Solutions

MTN Business offers world-class telecommunications services over one of Africa’s most technically innovative, reliable and secure virtual private networks. The company planned to leverage its large MPLS footprint to deliver interactive IP communications services and sought a session border control and session routing solution to accelerate service deployment and ensure high service quality and availability.

MTN Business implemented a highly scalable, efficient and extensible interactive IP communications architecture based on Acme Packet Net-Net Session Router session routing proxies (SRPs) and Net-Net Session Director session border controllers (SBCs). Net-Net Session Router SRPs overcome the challenges inherent in routing large numbers of SIP-based sessions within and between IP networks. Acme Packet delivers high-performance stateful or stateless routing on highly-scalable platforms that reduce the number of session routing proxies required in the MTN Business network.

Net-Net Session Director SBCs mitigate critical security, interoperability and service quality challenges, enabling the secure, efficient and reliable delivery of session-based IP communications.

Acme Packet helped MTN Business contain OPEX and CAPEX by avoiding the expense and complexity of Class 4 softswitches and media gateways, and by replacing legacy SS7 TDM-based interconnects with more cost-effective and flexible IP interconnects. The next generation IP architecture enables the company to deliver profitable interactive communications services today— including hosted VoIP and SIP trunking—while providing a solid foundation for future initiatives such as interactive video and cloud-based services.
