News Facts

Oracle today announced that Movistar Argentina, a subsidiary of the Telefónica Group and one of the leading mobile service providers in Argentina, has deployed Oracle’s Acme Packet Net-Net Session Director session border controllers (SBCs) to help enable secure and reliable SIP-based communications.
As telecommunications networks become more complex – with fixed line, mobile, next-generation and over-the-top (OTT) services often combined in one network – communications service providers (CSPs) need a sophisticated session border controller to help maintain a high-performing and secure network.
Movistar Argentina implemented Oracle’s Acme Packet Net-Net Session Director to protect and control its network borders and SIP infrastructure. The solution helps Movistar Argentina enable secure and reliable communications by encrypting signaling and media flows, helping protect the operator's infrastructure against malicious attacks and service overloads and providing load balancing and quality-of-service based routing functions.
Oracle’s Acme Packet Net-Net Session Director helps Movistar Argentina simplify service deployment by enabling direct interoperability between the operator’s various SIP-based platforms, including softswitch, voicemail and communications services elements.
The project extended the use of Oracle’s Acme Packet Net-Net Session Director technology within Movistar Argentina. The operator has been using Oracle’s Acme Packet Net-Net Session Director solutions for peering and session routing since 2008 and is well versed in the product’s functional and performance advantages.
