LOD, Israel, October 23, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --

Details  
AudioCodes (NASDAQ: AUDC), a leading provider of voice networking solutions that enable enterprises and service providers to transition to all-IP voice networks, today announced that it is collaborating with RedSky, a leader in E911 solutions, to deliver enhanced emergency calling for hosted telephony environments. The integration of AudioCodes' 400HD series IP phones and session border controllers (SBCs) with RedSky Horizon Mobility™ technology allows the physical location of a user to be identified in the event of a 9-1-1 call. The joint solution will be offered initially for BroadSoft BroadWorks environments.

Horizon Mobility™ is a commercial implementation of the NENA i3 Next Generation 9-1-1 architecture. This technology enables a phone to request its location when it moves and enables the phone to send its location when the phone dials 9-1-1. The technology is SIP-based and it integrates with RedSky's E911 Anywhere® cloud service which can accept and route 9-1-1 calls to any 9-1-1 center in the USA and Canada.

The AudioCodes 400HD family of high definition IP phones and its Mediant session border controller (SBC) products have been certified for interoperability with BroadSoft BroadWorks, delivering high voice quality and integrated service assurance for BroadSoft hosted telephony service users. The collaboration with RedSky Horizon Mobility™ results in a unified emergency calling solution that also provides E911 support for analog ports and non-certified SIP devices.

"RedSky is excited to work with AudioCodes which has done so much good work to transition enterprises to IP telephony," said Tony Maier, CEO of RedSky. "Together, we are delivering the future of E911 mobility tracking to BroadWorks enterprise customers."

"AudioCodes' support for i3 NG9-1-1 services will assist service providers with a more consistent approach in addressing emergency calling identification from a wider range of terminal equipment," said Mark Baker, BroadSoft Director of Business Development.  "RedSky's Horizon Mobility™ service's cloud-based approach simplifies emergency call delivery for service providers leveraging the BroadSoft Business platform."

"Our longstanding partnership with BroadSoft has already yielded a broad portfolio of voice solutions for its hosted communications environments," commented Lior Aldema, AudioCodes' COO and Head of Global Sales. "The addition of our joint E911 solution with RedSky is a further milestone in ensuring that enterprises experience a smooth migration to hosted telephony and unified communications services."

AudioCodes and RedSky Technologies will be participating at BroadSoft Connections in Phoenix, Arizona, October 22-25, 2017:

  • AudioCodes, a Platinum Plus sponsor, will be at booth P1
  • RedSky Technologies will be at booth #10
