NexTone Debuts QoS Solution For VoIP And Converged IP Networks

NexTone has released a solution designed to deliver Quality of Service (QoS) and reliability to converged IP networks for real-time services such as VoIP.

The solution is designed to help carriers satisfy expectations for PSTN-like performance, availability, and service level agreement (SLA) assurances.

The new platform includes a Real-time Session Manager (RSM), which acts as a centralized policy manager and enforcement point to manage network resources and optimize call distribution, and a Multiprotocol Session Controller (MSC) to work with MPLS devices to enforce QoS policies across the network edge.

"Carriers are looking to IP technologies to help them combat competitive threats, reduce capital and operational expenses, and increase service deployment velocity, but they are nervous about IP's ability to satisfy expectations for PSTN-like performance, availability, and service level agreement (SLA) assurances," Dan Dearing, vice president of marketing at NexTone said in a statement. "NexTone's new RSM platform integrates transport and application QoS to deliver guaranteed end-to-end performance for latency-sensitive applications and services. It supports the true convergence of service and network."
