BURLINGTON, Mass. -- Acme Packet®, the leader in session border control solutions, today announced additional features and a partnership to deliver the most comprehensive collection of session border controller capabilities to enable high quality, trusted cable voice, video and multimedia services. In support of enabling carrier-class private and public interconnects, Acme Packet now supports an ENUM server interface and has proven interoperability in field deployments with Nominum’s Navitas, the leading ENUM-based IP-application routing directory server. Acme Packet is also expanding its hosted NAT traversal mechanisms with support for the emerging IETF standard STUN (Simple Traversal of UDP through NATs), STUN-Relay/TURN (Traversal Using Relay NAT) and ICE (Interactive Connectivity Establishment).

Acme Packet is currently in commercial production at 4 of the top 7 cable operators in the US and at some of the top cable companies in Europe. For these operators, Acme Packet’s Net-Net session border controllers (SBCs) play key roles at both access network edge and interconnect borders to protect and secure the MSO service infrastructure, maximize search reach, assure high-quality services and SLAs, protect revenue and profits, and ensure regulatory compliance.

“With over 2.2 million cable VoIP subscribers in the United States supported by our Net-Net SBCs today, Acme Packet is taking a leading role in helping MSOs deliver next generation services,” stated Seamus Hourihan, Vice President Marketing and Product Management at Acme Packet. “With the addition of the ENUM interface, our new partnership with Nominum, and STUN, STUN-Relay/TURN and ICE for NAT traversal, our Net-Net SBC delivers superior feature sets for both access and peering.”
