Acme Packet Extends Outsourcery’s Cloud Offerings for Businesses

UK-based cloud service provider Outsourcery has selected Acme Packet Net-Net session border controllers (SBCs) to extend its broad cloud product offerings for businesses. Acme Packet’s SBCs will support Outsourcery’s launch of Microsoft Lync 2010 and allow geographic distribution across multiple sites.


Outsourcery, which is Microsoft’s worldwide ‘Hosting Solutions Partner of the Year‘ 2010, notes that it will use these SBCs to deliver SIP trunking services to Outsourcery’s hosted Microsoft unified communications (UC) customers.  Acme Packet specializes in session delivery network solutions and enables the trusted, first-class delivery of next-generation voice, data and unified communications services and applications across IP networks.

For this project it has deployed the Net-Net 3820 SBCs in multiple high-availability (HA) pairs at Outsourcery’s access and interconnect borders.

The deployment will deliver several benefits such as securing the network, routing VoIP and UC sessions as well as aggregating usage statistics for its customers.

Outsourcery claims it offers one of the broadest cloud product solutions for businesses in the world. It is a founding member of the Cloud Industry Forum (CIF) and also the UK’s first carbon neutral UC and hosted IT solutions company.

We chose Acme Packet for a number of reasons, including their market leadership and experience with Microsoft UC deployments in enterprise and service provider networks,” said Ryan O’Reilly, head of Telecoms Infrastructure & Networks at Outsourcery. “The Net-Net 3820 SBC will play a key role in our network as we expand our customer base and add new services to our IP communications portfolio.”

Service providers worldwide recognize Acme Packet’s proven track record in next-generation hosted services solutions,” said Dino Di Palma, Acme Packet’s senior vice president of worldwide sales and business development. “Our commitment to interoperability pays dividends to service providers such as Outsourcery as they build out hosted UC and other service offerings.”
