Broadband Technology Report Awards 4 Diamonds to Alianza’s Hosted NFV VoIP Solution
Cable Executives Applaud Cloud-based Approach to Delivering Residential and Business Voice Services
LINDON, Utah, October 7, 2015 — Adding to its growing recognition for disruptive and innovative solutions for next-generation VoIP, Alianza today announced that its Hosted NFV VoIP solution received a four-diamond rating in the 2015 Broadband Technology Report Diamond Technology Reviews. Alianza is exhibiting in booth 2611 at SCTE Cable-Tec Expo next week in New Orleans. Schedule a meeting at the show and learn more about Alianza’s Hosted NFV VoIP and next-generation cable VoIP solutions.
A four-diamond rating indicates an “excellent product with technical features and performance that provide clear and substantial benefits.” Engineering executives from Bright House Networks, Charter, Comcast, Cox, Suddenlink Communications and Time Warner Cable, as well as expert consultants, were among the judges for the 2015 Diamonds.
Alianza’s Hosted NFV VoIP solution builds on the elastic scalability and service agility of NFV and delivers it via the cloud with a SaaS-based business model and a lower overall cost than building and running a network. With Alianza’s Cloud Voice Platform, service providers can cloud source a complete NFV VoIP solution — including NFVI, VoIP/IMS VNFs and management layers — that is fully integrated and easy to manage. This alternative approach to NFV voice delivers significant TCO savings, simpler operations and rapid innovation; it also frees up resources, allowing service providers to invest in strategic growth opportunities.
One judge commented, “Operators need to consider ways to refresh the voice services they offer. The opportunity to sustain revenue by adding new features such as HD voice, soft clients, voice mail transcription, etc., is critical to the long-term success of this product. Alianza has proposed a way to quickly and efficiently migrate from existing legacy voice environments to the next generation.”
Alianza’s Vice President of Marketing, Kevin Mitchell, stated, “Alianza provides an innovative solution for NFV-based voice that has a clear and compelling business case. Accolades from the Diamond Technology Reviews underscore that our solution is important and transformative for cable operators.”
