CHEPSTOW, U.K. -- Newport Networks, the developer of carrier-class Session Border Controllers, has been selected by Broadnet, a leading broadband internet carrier in Germany to deliver a range of session control solutions including Newport’s regulatory feature set for Broadnet’s VoIP service portfolio.

Founded in 1995 and with revenues of over €9M per quarter, Broadnet has the third largest wireless local loop and DSL infrastructure in Germany. Broadnet offers powerful communication solutions such as IP-VPN and Centrex services to business customers via their broadband network. Broadnet also offers professional internet services to residential customers with a range of additional value added capabilities such as VoIP.

The Newport Network’s 1460 session controller is the industry’s most future proof session control solution offering unmatched scalability, performance and investment protection. The Newport 1460 can be deployed in an extremely flexible manner separating both signalling and media alongside a simple migration path to important future standards such as IMS (IP Multi-Media Subsystem). Broadnet will deploy the Newport 1460 to provide IP multi-media access security to its customers during 2006.

“Broadnet has exacting standards in the delivery of its broadband business services,” commented Dr. Clemens Plieth, COO of Broadnet. “The growth in our business has created a need for a highly scalable session control solution that can meet our anticipated needs over the next few years. We looked at a number of session control solutions and the Newport solution was the only one that fully met our scalability requirements while not limiting the network architecture,” he added.

“Newport is making rapid progress in the European market,” commented John Everard, Chief Executive Officer of Newport Networks. “The 1460 is fast becoming the product of choice for service providers who have aggressive traffic growth needs and require a carrier class solution for their VoIP security,” he added.
