Allworx and Cbeyond Partner Team to Provide Interoperability of Solutions

(Wireless News Via Thomson Dialog NewsEdge)
Allworx and Cbeyond, an IP-based managed service provider for small
businesses, announced interoperability between Allworx' award winning
line of SIP-phones and IP-PBX systems and Cbeyond's SIP Trunking
service, BeyondVoice with SIPconnect.

The combined solution provides the small and medium sized business
(SMB) market with a solution that delivers business-class voice
quality, extensive calling features and significant cost savings.

Cbeyond delivers integrated packages of communications and IT services
to more than 31,000 small businesses across the United States. Its
BeyondVoice with SIPconnect service is an integrated package of local
and long-distance voice, high-speed Internet and mobile services.
Allworx' IP-PBX/Key systems and SIP-phones provide true key system
functionality critical to SMBs transitioning to next generation IP
phone systems.

Together, the two companies are leveraging the SIPconnect specification
to ensure a consistent quality of service, low cost and full-featured
telephony for SIP-based VoIP calls. They are also training and
supporting a mutual set of channel partners to meet the communications
and IT needs of small and medium sized businesses across the United

Allworx combined with Cbeyond's BeyondVoice with SIPconnect service
provides businesses -- requiring as few as four SIP trunks -- with
cost-effective Direct Inward Dial (DID) capabilities; high quality
voice services; and reliable service and support. Channel partners are
leveraging this solution to deliver on-premise equipment and managed
services that include: T1 connections for Internet and email; local and
long distance calling; mobile and BlackBerry services; and applications
such as virus protection, spam blocking, firewalls, secure back up,
file sharing, VPNs, and fax-to-email services.

"Our relationship with Allworx is beneficial on multiple levels,
because we're making our joint customers happy by meeting their
communications and IT needs more effectively, and we're also
simplifying the installation process for channel partners, while
increasing their annuity streams," said Chris Gatch, chief technology
officer for Cbeyond.

"For our channel partners, time is money, and getting users up and
running quickly is paramount," said George E. Daddis, chief executive
officer for Allworx Corp. "By combining our turn-key servers and QoS
solutions with Cbeyond's services, many of our channel partners have
been able to complete robust installations in an hour, a task that once
took days to complete. Beyond the install, our combined offerings
reduce customer churn, ensuring the long-lasting engagements that
strengthen the channel partner's bottom line."

Oracle in Enterprise Communications

Most in the industry have heard of the acquisition of Acme Packet by Oracle. What you may not know is that Oracle has a number of telecommunications products including a UC suite, WebRTC Session Controller, and Operations monitoring tools. Oracle is pursuing both the enterprise and service provider.

Featured Whitepapers

WebRTC Security Concerns

This whitepaper covers two of the most relevant topics in communications industry today: WebRTC and security. We will introduce the problem of security in WebRTC including those traditional VoIP attacks that are going to be present in WebRTC services. Later we will mention ad-hoc WebRTC attacks and protection mechanisms, to close with an overview of identity management solutions.

Migrating Real Time Communications Services to the Web

In the Internet age, businesses that own fixed and mobile communication networks, including traditional Communications Service Providers (CSPs) of all kinds, are being challenged with some tough questions: How do we stay relevant to our customers?

Delivering Enterprise-Class Communications with WebRTC

WebRTC is an emerging industry standard for enabling Web browsers with real-time communications capabilities. It enables enterprises to enhance Web sites, empower BYOD users, and improve video collaboration and on-line meetings, to name but a few examples.

WebRTC Report Extract Reprint

This document examines the growing important of WebRTC, both generally and for telecom service providers. It considers the expanding range of use-cases, the multiple layers of interoperability likely to be desired by telcos, and some implications in terms of network integration and mobility.


Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services

The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.


The Oracle Communications WebRTC Session Controller enables communications service providers (CSPs) and enterprises to offer WebRTC services – from virtually any device, across virtually any network – with carrier-grade reliability and security.

- Summary


Communication Service Provider (CSP) voice service revenues continue to face pressure due to shifts in communication preferences and competition from non-traditional service providers. Voice communications are now often embedded into applications outside the domain of traditional telephony voice usage. CSPs have been challenged to effectively leverage and monetize new web-oriented communications technologies.
