Internet Telephony Report Day 1

I'm here safe and sound in sunny Miami. I'm currently sitting in on the "SIP's Role in Open Source" speaking session which is moderated by Rich Tehrani. I missed a few of the speakers since I arrived in the middle of the session.Right now SIPfoundary is speaking about GNU and GPL.Well, I'm a good multitasker, but I should listen to the rest of the speeches. But I'll post one bit of news before I sign off...

Jon Arnold, VoIP Program Leader of Frost & Sullivan stated that deployment of Kagoor's session border controllers "will be a key factor in helping service providers such as ISN gain market leadership."

Kagoor enables Miami-based CLEC to provide unlimited calls to Latin America

SAN MATEO, CA and MIAMI, FL - February 22, 2005 - Kagoor Networks, a leading provider of session border control solutions, today announced that ISN Telcom, the leading pan-regional, phone, data, wireless and Internet services company, has deployed Kagoor's VoiceFlow 1000 session border controller for its ipFONE VoIP service. Kagoor enables the Miami-based CLEC to provide its customers with unlimited calls to Latin America in addition to the United States, and Canada for a single monthly fee.

"VoIP will fuel the rapid growth of telephone service between Miami and Latin America", said Jon Arnold, VoIP Program Leader of Frost & Sullivan.
"Deployment of session border controllers provided by companies like Kagoor will be a key factor in helping service providers such as ISN gain market leadership."

Kagoor's session border controllers provide network protection and security for ISN's VoIP network. Kagoor's network protection applications include topology hiding, intrusion prevention, call admission control, and protection from denial of service (DoS) attacks, which provides ISN's customers with secure, high-quality VoIP calls.

Kagoor also provides its hosted NAT traversal solution, which permits incoming VoIP calls to securely pass through firewalls. Kagoor's unique 3-way architecture ensures the optimum platform for the NAT traversal applications. With the VoiceFlow network-hosted NAT traversal solution, ISN delivers its customers VoIP service without adding additional premises equipment. VoiceFlow fully supports all major VoIP protocols (SIP, H.323, MGCP), and provides carriers with the most extensive vendor library of protocol extensions available.

"Kagoor delivers all of the capabilities that ISN's VoIP network will need at its borders," said Jonathan Lieberman, president of ISN. "VoiceFlow gives us a real competitive edge by enabling economical VoIP calls between Miami and Latin America for our business and residential customers."

ISN Telcom, one of the first competitive local exchange carriers (CLEC) nationwide to roll out VoIP services, supplies telephone service directly to residential and business customers through its ipFONE service without interconnecting through a local carrier.

"ISN Telcom is becoming the market leader in the rapidly growing, Miami metropolitan area," said Jim Greenway, vice president of marketing for Kagoor. "We're happy we could be a part of their continued success."
