Oracle Communications Helps Evolve IP Expand Services

Evolve IP, an innovative cloud strategy company, is using Oracle Communications to modernize its European network infrastructure and deliver new services to customers. Evolve IP has deployed Oracle Communications Session Border Controller (SBC) to enable secure IP-based access for their hosted contact center software, and for several other services including SIP trunking, hosted business telephony, CRM integration, and fixed-mobile integration.

With Oracle Communications SBC, the company can create a true cloud-based, NFV-enabled networking infrastructure, helping it to rapidly expand its service footprint across the Netherlands and other EU countries.

“At Evolve IP, we are committed to evolving our network, positioning ourselves to support the anticipated traffic growth and value-added services our customers will require in the future. It is clear to us that moving to the cloud will be critical in meeting these goals. We see Oracle as an expert in cloud, virtualization, IT, and telecommunications and have found that its Oracle Communications SBC offers unique strengths in all of these areas,” said Michiel van Dis, managing director, Evolve IP Europe.

After a careful selection process and proof-of-concept testing, Evolve IP was able to deploy Oracle Communications SBC in its production network within a matter of days.

“As today’s operators adopt cloud technologies to evolve their networks in support of an ever-increasing traffic load, and as they rapidly deploy new services, Oracle Communications SBC will be a valuable addition,” said David Snow, principal analyst, Global Telecom Technology & Software, Global Data. “Operators keen on quickly transforming their networks to broaden their service footprint are looking to fully cloud-based, NFV-enabled networking infrastructure to fulfill their goals.”

Oracle Communications SBC is an industry-leading session border controller, offering strong security, high availability, and interoperability for enterprise VoIP and unified communications (UC) networks. The virtualized edition ensures enterprises, such as Evolve IP, can easily migrate across a range of cloud deployment models, enabling trusted, real-time communications and the highest level of service to customers.

“Today’s progressive operators recognize the benefits of virtualization and have made adopting cloud technologies the cornerstones of their network evolutions,” said Doug Suriano, senior vice president and general manager, Oracle Communications. “With Oracle Communications SBC, Evolve IP has the network foundation it needs to provide its users with highly reliable voice, video and unified communications services while mitigating security threats and solving interoperability issues as they progress toward the future.”
