Edgewater Networks’ Interoperability Lab Certifies Positron Telecommunication’s G-Series IP PBX

Santa Clara, California – March 5, 2012 – Edgewater Networks Inc., a leading provider of Enterprise Session Border Controllers, announced today that its SIP Trunking Interoperability Lab has certified Positron Telecommunication Systems’ G-Series IP PBX solutions. The Lab is part of the Edgewater Networks Plug & Dial Alliance program and is used to formally validate and document the proper operation of PBX systems with SIP trunking services using the EdgeMarc Enterprise Session Border Controller (ESBC). Through carrier, cable operator, service provider, OEM, and distribution partnerships, EdgeMarc ESBCs are currently in use at leading enterprises to resolve interoperability challenges between SIP trunking service providers and enterprise PBX systems. This enables enterprise customers to take advantage of increasingly popular SIP trunking services while providing a consistent signaling interface to the service provider that reduces operating costs and expands their total available market.

“Positron Telecom submitted its IP PBX solutions for certification with Edgewater’s ESBC as they have a significant market presence and strong reputation for quality within the industry,” said Jeffrey Liberman, VP of Sales and Business Development for Positron Telecom. “By using Edgewater Networks’ solution combined with Positron Telecom’s IP PBX, our reseller partners will be better positioned to provide their small-to-medium business customers with a higher quality experience.”

The EdgeMarc ESBC is deployed at the customer’s premises and is used to connect Positron’s IP PBX system to SIP trunking services. The EdgeMarc also provides VoIP-aware security, quality of service (QoS) to ensure high quality voice calls and integrated call quality monitoring to simplify problem resolution. The EdgeMarc is fully compatible with Edgewater Networks’ EdgeView VoIP Support System. The award-winning EdgeView VoIP Support System is used by leading service providers and enterprise organizations who are responsible for maintaining and managing converged voice, video and data networks. It provides visibility into call quality performance and is used to quickly find network impairments that negatively impact call quality.

The EdgeMarc ESBC and EdgeView VoIP Support System are a part of a comprehensive solution from Edgewater Networks that connect, protect, optimize and manage IP-based communications.

“We’re excited to add the Positron Telecom solution to the growing list of leading IP PBX systems certified by our SIP Trunking Interoperability Lab,” said Dave G. Norman, Chief Executive Officer of Edgewater Networks. “This certification combines the best-in-class communications platform feature set of the G-Series IP PBX with the increased interoperability, security and high quality of service enabled by the EdgeMarc.”

Combining the EdgeMarc ESBC with Positron Telecom’s G-series IP PBX, ensures that end-users will have the ability to connect to a variety of SIP trunking service providers to obtain the lowest long-term investment available on the market. This certification expands Positron’s market to the growing number of carriers, MSOs and Service Providers that rely on Edgewater’s SIP trunking lab certification to validate and maintain PBX interoperability.
