MAYNARD, Mass. -- Covergence, the first company to deliver a unified security and management solution for applications and services based on the Session Initiation Protocol (SIP), announced today that iTalk Broadband Corporation (iTalkBB) has chosen Covergence's Eclipse(TM) solution to address the challenge of reliably scaling thousands of concurrent Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) connections at the subscriber edge.

The subscriber edge is the boundary point at which service providers connect subscribers to their service. At the SIP subscriber edge hundreds-of-thousands to millions of real-time connections need to be managed and secured as they traverse the service boundary. In order to continue to grow its business while maintaining its position as a tier one VoIP service provider, iTalkBB sought out Covergence to ensure service scalability and performance at the subscriber edge. Eclipse is the first product specifically designed to secure and manage large numbers of active endpoints. The remarkable performance and capacity of Eclipse begins with its hardware and software architecture which were purpose-built for the demands of the SIP edge. Eclipse's flexible, distributed design supports integrated clustering and load balancing to enable administrators to scale performance to carrier-class levels simply by adding Eclipse appliances to the cluster. With Covergence's Eclipse(TM) solution, iTalkBB can now offer subscribers the predictable performance and quality they have come to expect from their existing PSTN service.

"We chose Covergence's Eclipse solution because it is specifically designed to handle a high number of VoIP connections," said Jack Zhao, president and CEO of iTalkBB. "With Eclipse managing our connections, we can continue to guarantee reliability and quality to our subscribers, while maintaining our strategic growth objectives."

"Service providers like iTalkBB are quickly discovering that they need to find new solutions to manage their escalating VoIP business," said Bob O'Neil, president and CEO, Covergence. "Those that choose Eclipse are gaining the competitive advantage in the marketplace by giving subscribers the quality and reliability they demand."
