Leading cloud connectivity provider ADTRAN Inc. has announced a platform for voice migration that fills a demand in the market for the deployment of a single-solution platform.

Designed for enterprises and service providers, the NetVanta® 7000 range has released software configuration to enable deployment of hosted or cloud-based business VoIP services with just one hardware platform. There is a need for businesses today to retain all the competitiveness they can, and this new release with wireless, video, data and voice services all-in-one allows them to do that.

Typically, voice deployments required platforms that were purpose-built, acting as a gateway or PBX for hosted and cloud-based services. The NetVanta 7100 has allowed this to change as service providers previously deploying hosted VoIP can now provide alternate deployment. Businesses that deploy premise PBX solutions are now able to offer a platform with migration paths to host-based services. There is also support for either premises-based or hosted solutions.

Frost and Sullivan program manager, Rob Arnold, told Telecom Reseller:

“Given the rapid rise of hosted and cloud-based voice service applications, as an alternative to premises-based PBX, a single hardware platform to address both introduces a new level of efficiency in scale and management to the market.”

Product management director for ADTRAN’s Cloud Connectivity Solutions, Chris Thompson, added:

“As the industry leader in IP Business Gateways, ADTRAN has extensive knowledge of the various SIP trunking and cloud-based service offerings that are present in the market today. This, combined with our experience in premises-based IP telephony, has given us a unique opportunity to create a single-solution platform that is well suited for all types of deployments. Service providers can now support multiple deployment scenarios with a single platform.”

He went on to say that end users are now given assurance that they have protection of equipment investment as their business and communication needs evolve.
