Integra Telecom achieves interoperability with NEC's UNIVERGE PBX system

Integra Telecom has upped the ante of its SIP Trunking Service by establishing interoperability with NEC's NEC UNIVERGE SV8100, meaning that NEC's IP PBX systems can work with Integra's SIP Solutions SIP Trunking Service.

The motivation to develop interoperability with major PBX vendors like NEC is all about helping its customers that have an NEC IP PBX transition from traditional T1-based trunking to SIP trunking in a non-disruptive fashion.

Expanding the number of IP PBXs certified to operate with its SIP trunking service has a number of benefits for business customers, including more efficient bandwidth use by combining voice and data into one service; dynamic bandwidth allocation; and maximizing capacity via compression to avoid having to add more voice circuits.

Having a broad choice of interoperable IP PBX systems in its arsenal will enable Integra to more effectively target customers who are considering upgrading their existing TDM-based trunking circuits to Integra’s SIP Trunking service.

Similar to its recent interoperability agreement with fellow IP PBX manufacturer Mitel, the pact with NEC is part of a broader effort by Integra to expand the number of IP PBXs that are certified to operate with its SIP Trunking service. Integra also has certifications with other IP PBX vendors including Allworx, Ingate, and Toshiba.
