Moving customers from PSTN to SIP Trunks required quick cradle-to-grave validation process
tekVizion, the largest independent interoperability verification lab with over 40 vendor PBXs available for verification and certification, recently completed 10 SIP trunking validations across multiple PBX platforms for VodafoneZiggo NL in a record time of six weeks.
tekVizion’s automated testing tools combined with its SIP trunk verification to test best practices greatly compressed the validation cycle to streamline deployments and help Vodafone to accelerate their go-to-market approach with a large set of configurations.
“Verifying interoperability across multiple technologies had been a lengthy process that at times would delay overall UC rollouts. tekVizion has reduced the time needed to complete verifications, while providing field configuration guides to assist with field deployments. This allows Vodafone to bring products to market faster and with great confidence.”
“In just 1.5 months, tekVizion verified 10 SIP trunking solutions across seven vendor platforms,” said Roel Snoek Technical Product Manager, Fixed Voice & Cloud Productivity Services at Vodafone Netherlands
The 10 vendor PBXs validated for Vodafone include:
- Asterisk (Asterisk 13.5.0)
- Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise (OmniPCX Enterprise 12.0)
- Cisco (CUCM0.1.10000-10, CUCM11.5.1)
- Interactive Intelligence, now Genesys (ININ – CIC 2017 R2 Patch 6)
- Microsoft (Skype For Business 2015)
- Mitel (Aastra MX-One 6.1 SP1 HF3, 3300 MiVoice BusinessR 8.0 PR2 Build 220.127.116.11, iVB 3300 8.0 SP1 – ICP 18.104.22.168)
- UNIFY (OpenScape Voice V9, OpenScape Business S 2.0)
“Our vast experience in SIP trunk verification with various vendor PBXs has helped us to build the best practices to ensure SIP trunks measure up to what the customer expects for quality when they migrate from PSTN to SIP. We also provide guidelines for Vodafone to share with their customers to help simplify configuration when activating,” said Simon Richards, managing director of tekVizion EMEA
