AudioCodes (NASDAQ: AUDC), a leading provider of voice networking solutions that enable enterprises and service providers to transition to all-IP voice networks, today announced the launch of the Universal Communications Architecture (UCA), a comprehensive solution that is designed to facilitate cost-effective voice network modernization for large enterprises.
The need for modernization is primarily driven by service providers around the world that have long announced their plans to transition to all-IP networks, thereby eliminating TDM access services in the coming 3 to 5 years. As a result, enterprises need to adapt their networks in order to connect to SIP trunking services. Large, often globally distributed enterprises are typically further challenged with heterogeneous communications systems and burdened by excessive communications charges.
Universal Communications Architecture is built using AudioCodes' broad portfolio of enterprise voice network infrastructure products and solutions. UCA employs session border controllers, centralized global end-to-end routing and policy management to enable consolidation of communication silos into a universal network, concentration of off-net calls via centralized or regional SIP trunks and routing of all internal calls over the enterprise IP network. The solution also includes centralized network management and monitoring to ensure rapid identification and resolution of communications issues. Furthermore, AudioCodes' underlying VoIPerfectTM voice technology delivers high voice quality in dynamic network conditions while minimizing expensive WAN bandwidth consumption. Voice communications availability is ensured with robust high availability, security and attack protection capabilities. UCA is suitable for on-premises and cloud-based communications infrastructure and can be delivered as a fully virtualized solution in all leading virtualization environments.
"Today's trend towards All-IP networks and the need to keep communications costs under control represent serious challenges for administrators of large enterprise voice networks," said Yehuda Herscovici, VP Product at AudioCodes. "Our Universal Communications Architecture is a comprehensive voice modernization solution that does not require a forklift replacement of existing systems but still provides a future-proof infrastructure that is easy to manage, maintains corporate security and promises to deliver capital and operational cost savings. The solution has been selected and deployed by large enterprises with tens of thousands of employees in USA, Europe, and Asia."
