Sunnyvale, California – (The Hosting News) – September 21, 2005 – Web hosting automation provider, Ensim, has announced that it has been selected by EarthLink,
the nation’s next generation Internet service provider, to deploy its upcoming
nationwide residential VoIP service offering.
Ensim provides pre-packaged support for a full range of next-generation voice and data services with critical capabilities to solve the operational and business challenges of delivering these services. Ensim VoIP enables service providers to rapidly scale their VoIP business by automating the service delivery process with flow-through provisioning of softswitches and feature servers, unified messaging, voice mail applications, and CPE.
Steve Howe, EarthLink’s Vice President of Voice Services commented on the upcoming service, “As consumers adopt VoIP services, leading providers like EarthLink need solutions that are flexible, scalable and cost effective to build a successful and profitable business. After a rigorous evaluation process, Ensim VoIP emerged as the preferred solution to meet our critical criteria to help EarthLink build a world-class VoIP offering.”
EarthLink’s upcoming residential VoIP service will provide customers with local and long distance phone service via their trueVoice and Line Powered Voice offerings. Ensim, which completed the EarthLink implementation this month, is integrated with Sonus Networks Insight Element Management System to provide flow-through provisioning of core elements of EarthLink’s Sonus-based VoBB network, which includes the ASX Access Server and PSX Call Routing Server. Coordinating all of the key components of EarthLink’s VoIP infrastructure to enable automated, rapid delivery of services, Ensim has also provided EarthLink with VoIP provisioning and automation across IP Unity for voice mail management and automated configuration of CPE devices.
“Since inception, Sonus Networks has been dedicated to developing solutions that enable interoperability between applications, third-party vendors and Sonus products, launching the industry’s largest interoperability program, the OSPA in 1999,” said Steve Edwards, chief marketing officer, Sonus Networks. “By deploying Ensim with the Sonus Insight platform, EarthLink is able to provision multiple elements in their network through a unified provisioning system, reducing EarthLink’s time to market for new services. Sonus is committed to continuing the drive towards standard-based interoperability to make it easier and more attractive for service providers to deploy hosted VoIP services.”
“Ensim VoIP provides for fast time to market, lower operating costs, and best practices,” said Sandip Gupta, Ensim president and CEO. “We are excited that our solution is playing an important role in the success of EarthLink as they roll out their large scale nationwide residential VoIP service.”
