Cataleya, leader in real time communication networking technology innovation, was selected by Genius Networks, a UK-based provider of global network services, to deploy the virtualised version of its session border controller (SBC), Orchid Air. Orchid Air removes the barriers to deploying intelligent networks and enables Genius Networks to offer a differentiated SIP service with unique capabilities.
Orchid Air will first be rolled-out in the UK and US, with further plans to expand in continental Europe and Asia. Genius Networks will use Orchid Air’s Big Data, Network Analytics and Machine Learning capabilities to deliver a differentiated Quality of Experience (QoE) to its clients. With end-to-end visibility into network performance, its enterprise clients will benefit from comprehensive visibility via near real-time and trending analytics reporting – all accessible via an intuitive dashboard design.
Genius Networks leverages a 15-year telecoms heritage to offer a comprehensive suite of data, Voice, and application network solutions. It provides bespoke global networks that are agile, scalable and supported by the highest Quality of Service (QoS).
Andreas Hipp, Chairman and CEO at Cataleya said: “Genius Networks is using our Orchid Air to deliver intelligent SIP technology that provides an answer to challenges associated with delivering real-time Voice and video services over IP networks. By deploying our virtualised model Genius Networks is able to rapidly deploy intelligent networking, and monetise services with an immediate competitive advantage.”
Orchid Air can manage 9,000 simultaneous SIP sessions per instance using KVM with SR-IOV and 5,000 with VMware. This is supported by Cataleya’s highly redundant platform infrastructure, in case of outage Genius Networks can reroute traffic between different instances installed in different sites.
“Orchid Air offers us the differentiation and scalability that we need to successfully expand the scope of our Intelligent SIP services. With the support of complete virtualised technology, we are able to revolutionise communications throughout our clients’ businesses. With real-time capabilities rapidly accessible via a web-based platform, we offer all the tools that help combat the challenges prevalent in IP networks today,” said James Arnold-Roberts, CEO at Genius Networks.
