XOP Networks’ Deploys its First Audio Conference Bridge in Afghanistan
Being able to remotely bring up a sophisticated Linux based conference bridge system thousands of miles away speaks to the maturity and robustness of our product
XOP Networks, Inc., a developer of Value Added Service (VAS) software based platforms and Audio Conference Bridges, has deployed its Universal Service Node platform equipped with Audio Conferencing, Web Conferencing and Firebar Emergency Conferencing applications at a large multi-national organization in Kabul, Afghanistan.
The XOP Networks Universal Service Node platform supports both TDM (T1 or E1 PRI) and packet based (SIP, H.323) interfaces. The multi-national organization chose this platform so that it could be used with its current E1 PRI based infrastructure and then migrate to SIP based interface via a software upgrade as VoIP becomes more prevalent.
“As cellular telephony becomes pervasive around the world, the need for multi-party audio conferencing becomes greater as it improves business efficiency and reduces need for travel,” said Doug Jacob’s, XOP Networks’ VP of Sales.
“We were particularly pleased with the logistics surrounding this installation. The local Link staff of our customer along with our Technical Support here in Dallas was able to get the USN in service in just a few hours with no difficulty. Being able to remotely bring up a sophisticated Linux based conference bridge system thousands of miles away speaks to the maturity and robustness of our product,” said Sudhir Gupta, XOP Networks’ CEO.
