Vonage Chooses Sonus

I still can’t stop thinking about how many people in the year 2002 when the telecom market was in a perilous time told me that service providers all buy Lucent. Sure they will trial anything and everything else but when they deploy they go with Lucent.

How wrong these people were. Companies like Sonus are doing a great job a getting service providers – new and incumbent, to choose their solutions. Vonage has already deployed Sonus solutions in LA and New York… Now they will deploy Sonus around the country and world to help support their meteoric growth.

The specific products Vonage has and will continue to deploy from Sonus are the GSX9000, PSX Call Routing Server, SGX Signaling Gateway, and the Sonus Insight Management System. This release really helps Sonus’ position as one of the leading providers of next-gen switching equipment.

    The strange thing about this press release is that it states that Sonus and Vonage are forming an alliance?? Does the alliance have something to do with Vonage possibily filing an IPO in the future??

    Great question. There seems to be no indication of what you suggest in the release. I am unclear how this would apply to a forthcoming IPO.

    I sent over the following question to Sonus:
    Is there an explanation of what alliance means? As opposed to the typical purchasing of products?
    This is the answer I received:
    It is a typical purchasing agreement; however, the powers-that-be chose “alliance” to indicate the long term nature of the agreement and the fact that this isn’t a “one off” deployment.
    Hope that helps clarify.
    It’s exciting news for us. We’ve been working with Vonage for quite some time now, and we’re excited to be able to talk about it publicly, as you can imagine.
