Compunetix (News - Alert) CONTEX Summit now supports AT Conference’s new voice over IP (VoIP) collaboration solution.

Officials at AT Conference said that they picked Compunetix after a rigorous search and evaluation of both media processors and Multipoint Control Units. The Summit blends in well with IMS architecture offering optimal voice quality, flexibility, open APIs and superior reliability. Summit is a perfect match for voice processor component in any architecture, allowing for a truly best-of-breed solution.

The CONTEX Summit is a media processor in the multipoint collaboration industry, combining the quality, reliability, and feature richness of traditional solutions with the flexibility and cost effectiveness of IP-centric, next-generation communication.

The support from CONTEX Summit allows AT Conference to offer reliable, cost effective solutions and superior service offerings for customers while building a more sustainable and maintainable back-end infrastructure.

"We chose Compunetix for its reliability, yet it is progressive enough to allow us to look to the future of collaboration," notes Mr. David Jannetti, CEO of AT Conference. "Our VoIP service will allow customers more service offerings and better pricing."

This new incorporated VoIP-based service enables users to gain mobility across devices and this service utilizes the cloud environment, allowing the users to experience a common platform across applications like billing and reporting. The Summit platform was engineered specifically for VoIP service, with no need for an external gateway. Multiple interoperability certificates have been awarded to the Summit, making the VoIP path simple and efficient.

In addition, the CONTEX Summit offers optional triple redundant control, continuous system check and diagnostics, no single point of failure, conference redundancy, hot-swap modules, a highly reliable operating system, power supply and feed redundancy, and fan monitoring.

Mr. Benjamin Krokosky, Director of Software Engineering at Compunetix said that their equipment accommodates multiple upgrade paths, and VoIP is an extremely beneficial step for Collaboration Service Providers to take in order to innovate.
