InnoMedia sources explained the capabilities of the ESBC 8528-4B saying that it is a suitable demarcation solution for Cable Operators to deliver SIP trunking and hosted voice telephony besides also offering broadband Internet service to enterprise customers. Located at the network edge, the ESBC 8528-4B enables NAT and firewall traversal, permitting VoIP traffic to enter the network at the same time preventing unauthorized access.
The ESBC 8528-4B also supports SIP normalization and it ensures interoperability with enterprise customer equipments like IP-PBX (News - Alert) or IP Phones. The ESBC, with an embedded cable modem is capable of supporting end-to-end QoS to allow MSOs to deliver optimized call quality for the first time.
The Smart-DQoS technology helps InnoMedia’s ESBC 8528-4B to establish UGS service flows eliminating the need for network Policy Servers. This helps simplify network setup considerations for MSOs. It has been effective in improving voice quality for both hosted and on-premise VoIP services provided by MSOs, according to market feedback reports.Shamila Janakiraman is a contributing editor for TMCnet.
