Hughes Software Systems and Audiocodes Complete Interoperability Testing
NEW DELHI, INDIA - Hughes Software Systems Ltd. (HSS), specialists in convergent network software, and AudioCodes, a provider of Voice over Packet (VoP) media gateway technologies and systems, announced the successful interoperation of Next Generation Network Infrastructure Frameworks. HSS and Audiocodes have successfully completed full interoperability testing of HSS' Softswitch, SIP Server and Gatekeeper Network Infrastructure Frameworks with AudioCodes' Analog Media Gateways (MediaPack) and AudioCodes' Digital Media Gateways (Mediant). Interoperability of HSS' frameworks with the AudioCodes Analog and Digital Media Gateways enables reduced resource investment and lower costs for customers, making it easier for them to integrate the systems and progress with customer opportunities for adopting and implementing new IP based services. The HSS Network Infrastructure Frameworks for Softswitch, SIP Server and Gatekeeper interoperated with the AudioCodes Analog and Digital Media Gateway using MGCP, MEGACO, SIP and H.323. The interop was carried out remotely and at the HSS labs. HSS Network Infrastructure Frameworks reduce development costs of network infrastructure for equipment vendors and offer the assurance of interoperability with other network elements from equipment manufacturers. AudioCodes MediaPack and Mediant families of Analog and Digital Media Gateways address the needs of Residential, Enterprise and Central Office (CO) deployments, providing cost-optimized and right-sized VoP Media Gateway systems. "We at HSS are excited by the interoperability of our offerings with AudioCodes' Media Gateways," said Manoranjan Mohapatra, Chief Operating Officer, Hughes Software Systems. "This enables us to provide complete packet-based solutions. This interoperability will also provide our OEM customers an assurance of a wider range of interoperability. " "The MediaPack and Mediant media gateways were defined to suit a wide range of VoP applications and architectures, allowing our customers to match investment with subscribers' growth and benefit from mature, field proven VoP technology" said Chaim Shachar, VP Sales India, at AudioCodes. "We are very pleased with the successful interoperability testing with HSS Network Infrastructure Frameworks, further showing our commitment to enable the new voice infrastructure."
