Kayote Intros Provisioning Tool For VoIP Providers

Kayote Networks, Inc. today announced a new traffic management solution with comprehensive provisioning and monitoring features designed to allow voice over IP (VoIP) providers to quickly and securely deploy their services.

Designed to address many of the interoperability issues that continue to plague VoIP providers, Kayote's FronTier is a hosted solution that combines session border controller (SBC) and network address translation (NAT) functionality with a range of monitoring and management features. The solution offers adaptive least-cost routing (LCR) and network analysis features that provide aggregate and averaged routing statistics, cost analysis, and quality

"Large telcos are increasingly discovering the difficulties in creating organic VoIP networks within their organizations that can overcome the key interoperability hurdles and ensure successful commercial deployment," Kayote Networks CEO Baruch Sterman said in a statement. "We have seen that the market is looking for a fully interconnected VoIP solution that offers effective routing and peering in a secure manner. Our FronTier hosted solution addresses these challenges head on, to provide carriers and ITSPs (internet telephony service providers) with field-proven, solid VoIP infrastructure at a fraction of the cost of a proprietary network."

Frontier includes access to what Kayote describes as a "robust and fully redundant" global VoIP network and offers secure electronic number mapping (ENUM) functionality. Its multi-layered security features include a VoIP firewall and protection against spam for Internet telephony (SPIT).
