The SIP Extension approach significantly reduces the TCO for our customers especially when dealing with conference bridges with large port counts

XOP Networks, Inc., a manufacturer of advanced conference bridges recently added SIP extensions as another signaling option available on its products.

As IP telephony becomes common place, most PBX manufacturers now provide IP PBXs that support SIP Extensions and SIP Trunks. Traditionally SIP Extensions are enabled first and are priced cheaper than the SIP Trunks.

With the availability of SIP Extensions based signaling, a 50 port XOP Networks’ Conference Bridge simply appears as 50 SIP extensions to the IP PBX.

The benefits of supporting SIP Extensions on XOP conference bridges are:

  • Lower Total Cost of Ownership as SIP Extensions are generally priced cheaper than SIP Trunks
  • Easy to implement High Availability between geographically separate conference bridges

"We recently deployed two audio conference bridges at a large airline. The bridges are installed in an Active/Standby High Availability configuration in two geographically separate locations and communicate with their associated IP PBXs using SIP extensions,” said Hugh Le, Director of Customer Support, XOP Networks.

“The SIP Extension approach significantly reduces the TCO for our customers especially when dealing with conference bridges with large port counts,” added Doug Jacob’s, VP Sales, XOP Networks.
