BURLINGTON, Mass. -- Acme Packet® (NASDAQ: APKT), the leader in session border control solutions, today announced that Vodafone Portugal, a leading Portuguese mobile service provider, is leveraging Acme Packet’s Net-Net® session border controllers (SBCs) to provide secure, high-quality residential VoIP services throughout Portugal. Deployed as part of an Ericsson Core IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) solution, Acme Packet’s Net-Net SBCs protect Vodafone Portugal’s IMS network as well as provide a solution for service assurance, service reach maximization and regulatory compliance.

Acme Packet Net-Net SBCs deliver critical security and control that complement Ericsson’s IMS solution for Vodafone Portugal. Acme Packet’s Net-SAFE® security architecture provides denial of service (DoS/DDoS) protection from malicious attacks and non-malicious overloads, access control and topology hiding. Call admission control policies on the Net-Net SBCs assure service quality and network availability. Hosted NAT traversal, signaling protocol repair and interworking maximize the reach of Vodafone Portugal’s IMS services. Using the DIAMETER e2 interface, Acme Packet SBCs query the CLF (connectivity location repository function) to obtain subscriber location information and insert it in SIP messages for emergency service support. Acme Packet’s SBC is also deployed at the access border to provide lawful intercept capability for Vodafone Portugal’s PSTN emulation service.

“Acme Packet SBCs fulfilled vital technical requirements to secure our IMS network and provide us with precise control over IP interactive sessions,” said Jorge Pinto Carvalho, ADSL Voice project leader at Vodafone Portugal. “With Acme Packet’s experience and unsurpassed feature depth, we are able to deliver high-quality interactive IP communications to our residential customers.”
