ORLANDO, Fla., July 14, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --
- Sonus demonstrates Skype for Business Software Defined-Networking (SDN) Interface collaboration, delivering better quality of experience (QoE) for users.
- Sonus' NaaS IQ provides real-time, in-session modification of network resources to accommodate business continuity for Skype for Business service or changing network conditions.
- Demonstration located in Sonus' booth 1507 at the 2015 Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference.
Sonus Networks, Inc. (Nasdaq: SONS), a global leader in enabling and securing real-time communications, announced today the demonstration of the Sonus NaaS IQ network controller platform at the 2015 Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference. This exhibit showcases the collaboration of Sonus' NaaS IQ with Microsoft Skype for Business through the Skype for Business SDN Interface. Organizations using this solution will be able to reliably and automatically deliver better QoE to Skype for Business users, while simultaneously lowering network costs.
Sonus is demonstrating how the combination of Microsoft's Skype for Business SDN Interface and Sonus' SDN networking enables optimized network orchestration, provides Unified Communications (UC) server isolation by way of pinhole access control and ensures the best possible route for each type of traffic. This means that disparate sessions, such as encrypted video and voice calls, are recognized and given the proper resources based on business needs. Additionally, if a call degrades due to a sudden change in traffic, too much jitter, latency or packet loss, NaaS IQ can dynamically select a better route to improve the customer experience.
Sonus' NaaS IQ is an application-aware platform that provides real-time control of the network by way of prioritizing specific application performance. Sonus' network controller platform provides simplified network operation through a policy-driven architecture with logically centralized resource control to automate and orchestrate delivery of just-in-time connectivity that disintermediates traditional routed and switched network economics. This feature also enables NaaS IQ to improve business continuity and optimize work load management.
"This demonstration is an ideal opportunity for organizations delivering UC to employees to see the potential presented by implementing SDN technology," said David Tipping, vice president and general manager, Products, Sonus. "Using Sonus' NaaS IQ in service provider and enterprise networks will allow end users to see a significant increase in QoE, while IT professionals can enjoy the flexibility and ease of the real-time session modification."
- Sonus' NaaS IQ was named a winner of the 2015 Excellence in SDN Award by TMCnet.
