Verisign enter the VoIP market
Posted on 12-Oct-2004 08:39 | Tags Filed under: News



VeriSign, Inc. is offering Voice-over Internet Protocol (VoIP) service providers a way to exchange voice traffic with traditional telecommunications carriers. Leveraging VeriSign's SS7 Network and VoIP access services, VeriSign's new SIP-7 (Session Initiation Protocol 7) Services provide SIP-to-ISUP (ISDN User Part) protocol conversion. SIP-7 allows SIP providers to connect to VeriSign's SS7 network, the largest independent SS7 network, via a SIP-enabled soft switch and secure Virtual Private Network (VPN). The basic service provides connectivity to North American carrier's networks with international connectivity available as an option. By offloading the complexity of interworking with the SS7 system, VoIP carriers can decrease capital expenditures and speed time to market for launching production services.

"One of the biggest challenges VoIP carriers face is that they still need to invest in people and equipment to connect to the SS7 network, and this can be one of the biggest cost items for jumping into VoIP technology," said Vernon Irvin, executive vice president of VeriSign Communications Services. "This new VeriSign service offering will help drive business for VoIP providers. One IP connection to VeriSign now connects them to almost every switched operator in North America."

VeriSign's offering can be used by carriers and ISPs to introduce new services based on SIP and VXML (Voice Extensible Markup Language), including local number portability, voice virtual private networks, and other intelligent network services. SIP-7 customers will also gain access to VeriSign's Public IP directory for IP-to-IP connectivity.
