The fastest-growing mobile operator in Canada, WIND Mobile provides wireless voice, text and data services on a next-generation wireless network and is committed to offering a level of wireless service presently not available in Canada. As of April 2012, the company has acquired over 400,000 customers and established roaming to over 200 countries.
WIND set out to bring a positive change to the industry by eliminating service contracts, high prices and complicated billing. The company offers highly competitive international long distance rates with unlimited calling plans to many countries, and is continuously expanding its international product portfolio. It leverages IP throughout its network to reduce operational costs and to be future ready. To that end, WIND sought a session border control solution to enable SIP interconnects to their growing community of international long distance service provider partners.
WIND selected Acme Packet Net-Net Session Director session border controllers (SBCs) to protect and control its SIP interconnect borders. Specifically designed to overcome the critical interoperability, security and service quality challenges service providers often encounter when extending SIP sessions across IP network borders, Net-Net Session Directors enable WIND to scale and optimize its international VoIP peering relationships.
Net-Net Session Director helps WIND accelerate time-to-market by mitigating SIP interworking challenges and enables WIND to reduce risks by concealing its private IP network topology and protecting against denial of service (DoS) and other malicious attacks as well as non-malicious overloads. In addition, Acme Packet’s flexible routing capabilities help WIND reduce international long distance expenditures while optimizing the subscriber experience.
