 Integra Telecom Earns SIP Interoperability Certification with NEC's UNIVERGE SV8100 Communication System

PORTLAND, Ore., June 30, 2011 – Integra Telecom Inc., a fiber-based telecom provider for businesses, has earned NEC’s Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) Trunking Interoperability certification with the NEC UNIVERGE SV8100. This certification helps to ensure NEC PBX will be able to work seamlessly with Integra’s SIP Solutions SIP Trunking Service.

Integra is expanding the number of IP PBXs certified to operate with its SIP Trunking service so its business customers can benefit in the following ways:

  • Gain more efficient use of bandwidth by combining voice and data networks onto a single service,
  • Receive dynamic bandwidth allocation so that voice is prioritized over data, meaning Internet bandwidth will increase when voice sessions are not in use, and
  • Maximize capacity through multiple compression options that place more calls over the same bandwidth with no need for additional circuits.

“We’re pleased to earn NEC’s SIP Trunking Interoperability certification with the NEC UNIVERGE SV8100,” said Steve Zimba, chief marketing officer for Integra Telecom. “This certification positions Integra to work even more closely with NEC dealers and businesses with UNIVERGE 8100, building our portfolio of SIP trunking services and delivering enhanced features and productivity to our business customers.”

“The combination of the UNIVERGE SV8100 communications server and Integra’s SIP Trunking Service provides a powerful foundation for unified communications and a means to optimize ongoing communications costs,” said Ram Menghani, director of product management and development for NEC Corporation of America.

Through Integra Telecom, businesses can utilize voice lines, Internet, MPLS and SIP services integrated with state-of-the-art VoIP systems, data services and unified communication applications. Additional information is available by calling 1-866-INTEGRA or visiting ​
