According to Hubert "Bert" Whyte, president and CEO of the company, "Network Equipment Technologies has always been recognized as an industry innovator, beginning with the first combination of multiple processes on a single platform to address the concerns of global enterprises back in the 1980s. As networks continue to evolve from circuit-switched to packet-based, we have engineered solutions that protect new capital investment while extending the life of legacy equipment. We are proud and delighted to be recognized by Techworld for this achievement."
The SHOUT VMA helps the enterprise seamlessly migrate legacy telephony systems to a converged IP solution by interconnecting multi-vendor PBX and call center environments with next generation VoIP applications across IP data networks. SHOUT's multi-vendor, multi-protocol support, combined with its strong support of open standards such as SIP help avoid vendor lock-in with proprietary solutions, further reducing implementation and capital costs.
The SHOUT VMA ensures:
- Protection of existing investments in PBX and Ethernet infrastructure: no "rip & replace" required;
- Inter-working and interoperability between disparate PBXs and emerging VoIP standards;
- Simplified technology transition with seamless integration;
- Maintains existing functions, features and business practices to ensure business continuity;
- Advanced VoIP security features that ensure network integrity; and,
- The lowest operational expenditure to VoIP deployment.
With SHOUT VMA, immediate savings are achieved by capping investment in the installed PBX network, using the IP network as a transport mechanism for high-cost routes, and enabling the existing infrastructure to take advantage of standards-based VoIP-enabled advanced applications. Migration reduces risks and costs associated with a full-scale replacement of the enterprise voice infrastructure.
