gnTel, a fast growing cloud-based telecom service provider to small and medium sized businesses in the Netherlands, has selected Oracle Communications technology to better scale their operations and lay the groundwork for the evolution of their network to NFV.
Replacing their existing solution, gnTel will use Oracle Communications Session Border Controller (OCSBC) running on Acme Packet 4600 purpose-built hardware platforms to immediately create a new scalable access and peering infrastructure for their customers. This solution would allow gnTel to not only jumpstart their services but because of the close interworking between physical and virtualized OCSBC instances, and a flexible licensing scheme, also preserve this investment while they migrate to NFV.
Oracle Communications Session Border Controller is a border control solution that operates with most major IP-PBX, unified communications, and application server providers – “reducing risks associated with commercial production level installations.” Available on both purpose-built physical and commercial-off-the-shelf virtualized platforms, and coupled with a perpetual network-wide licensing scheme, OCSBC would provide maximum flexibility to operators.
gnTel also chose NetAxis Solutions, an Oracle professional services partner located in Belgium, with deep technology competencies and experience, to design and implement their new service infrastructure.
“At gnTel, we recognize the fast pace of technology evolution in the telecom industry,” said Onno Speekenbrink, Techniocal Director of gnTel. “We wanted to invest in a proven solution from a company that brings together expertise in cloud, virtualization, IT, and telecommunications. Oracle‘s solution and NetAxis Solution’s implementation will position us well for future growth.”
