FUSE 3 Communications Creates a Hosted PBX Offering with TransNexus and Acme Packet
With the help of TransNexus, the VoIP management software experts, FUSE 3 Communications has recently expanded their business to include a hosted PBX offering.
FUSE 3 used its experience in providing hosted services to build its hosted PBX platform in-house. To ensure the highest level of security and reliability for their customers, FUSE 3 purchased the industry-leading Net-Net Session Director session border controller (SBC) from Acme Packet. These SBCs provided critical control functions to deliver high quality interactive communications—
“TransNexus was referred to FUSE 3 by Acme Packet our session border controller vendor,” said Michael Greco, CTO of FUSE 3.” “We had multiple conversations and meetings with TransNexus and their experience was a tremendous help. With the support of the TransNexus staff we put together a detailed implementation plan and quickly deployed the TransNexus solution with our Acme Packet SBCs.”
TransNexus is an Acme Packet Interop Plus Partner. These technology ecosystem partners represent a wide range of companies that interoperate with Acme Packet’s product suite. Interop Plus partners must complete interoperability testing for current and new product releases, which are deployed with Acme Packet in customer locations. Acme Packet’s SBCs generate comprehensive Call Detail Records, which TransNexus software converts into robust traffic and QoS reports. “TransNexus was really built to take advantage of the information collected by Acme Packet. Out of the box, TransNexus was ready to go with our network,” said Greco.
The complete TransNexus Routing, Operations and Billing Support System (ROBSS) consists of the NexOSS software suite and the OSPrey routing server, which work with any SBC for dynamic least cost routing and comprehensive reporting. TransNexus ROBSS works both for outbound calls and inbound Direct Inward Dial (DID) calls. With this solution, FUSE 3 was able to offer customers a telephone number and route inbound SIP calls from the PSTN.
TransNexus creates a routing table with up to 100,000,000 translations, which ensures that FUSE 3 never loses money on a call. In addition, TransNexus offers routing by calling and called number, time of day, day of week, and jurisdictional routing. This allows FUSE 3 to offer a variety of routing products to their customers, including multi-office connections and “Find-Me” services.
With the TransNexus system in place, FUSE 3 was able to complete their portfolio of IT solutions with VoIP telephony. “Since using TransNexus and Acme Packet to implement our hosted PBX offering, we are able to provide an end to end solution customized to their individual business needs,” said Greco.
TransNexus reporting solutions monitor the FUSE 3 network in near-real time, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. According to Greco, “The TransNexus solution we implemented has allowed us to dramatically increase profits and customer satisfaction by providing us complete insight into call flow, call quality, and traffic patterns.”
“Overall we couldn’t be happier with TransNexus,”
