ThinkTel and AudioCodes Complete Successful Interoperability Testing

SIP Trunking provider ThinkTel to grow partnership with global hardware manufacturer AudioCodes

TORONTO – ThinkTel, a Canadian leader in IP-based business telecommunications and the only Canadian company qualified to SIP Trunk directly to Microsoft Lync, announced today that it had successfully completed a rigorous ITSP Interoperability Acceptance Test Plan with the AudioCodes Enterprise Session Border Controllers (E-SBC) product family and its MetaSwitch CFS 7.4.

“Our partnership with AudioCodes has already enabled us to provide a range of additional connectivity and reliability options for our customers that ensure a high quality customer experience,” explained Dave Damer, President and CEO of ThinkTel. “We’re extremely happy to have completed this testing. Our partnership with AudioCodes will allow our customers to make use of existing TDM facilities as well as enhancing Lync deployments with international or remote office connectivity where IP solutions are not practical.”

The AudioCodes Mediant E-SBC product family with which ThinkTel’s SIP Trunking solution was certified includes four E-SBC hardware-based platforms designed for organizations of any size, from small businesses and branch offices to large enterprise data centers and contact center facilities. “AudioCodes has become a trusted partner of ours not only because of their expertise but also because of the flexibility of their solutions, which are a key component in ThinkTel’s ability to deliver a world class solution,” Damer concluded.
