True Selects Acme Packet’s Session Border Controllers for VoIP Security

Acme Packet, a provider of session border control solutions, has announced that True Corporation, a Thailand-based communications service provider, has deployed its Net-Net session border controllers for wholesale peering interconnects, IP PBX trunking and residential VoIP.

The Net-Net session border controllers (SBCs) are deployed in Bangkok using SIP and H.323 signaling protocols. According to Acme Packet, its multiservice architecture will maximize service reach and security at the access and peering interconnect borders of True's VoIP network.

Acme Packet's SBC is expected to protect and optimize True's VoIP network. Denial of service attack prevention, topology hiding and access control lists keep unauthorized and malicious traffic from breaching the network's core, said Acme Packet.

Seamus Hourihan, vice president of marketing and product management for Acme Packet, said: "True is bringing IP interactive communications to the Thailand market and our SBC plays a key role in making its service offering secure, high quality and scalable. True recognizes these characteristics as essential to being successful with its new service offerings."
