The GENBAND EXPERiUS Application Server 11.2 (note: EXPERiUS has been removed from the product name but there is no change to product functionality) has successfully completed US Department of Defense Joint Interoperability Test Command (JITC) testing as both an Enterprise Session Controller (ESC) and Local Session Controller (LSC). This certification effort was completed in concert with Polycom VVX phones and Polycom Treo as routine only end instruments. Certification also includes Teo IP phones and Avaya 1100 series phones.
The GENBAND Application Server shares its heritage with the Nortel AS 5300 R1.0 and R2.0 that has been widely deployed in the US Department of Defense for their Command and Control operations. The GENBAND Application Server offers a highly scalable, standards-based, upgrade option for these and similar deployments. GENBAND’s solution easily scales to hundreds of thousands of endpoints per node (max of 2 million) and is be deployed with standards-based SIP and ASSIP endpoints. There is no proprietary endpoint lock-in; the solution’s ESC certification and scale make it ideally suited for graphically redundant, private clouds.
JITC certification affords US defense departments, as well as certain government contractors, assurances that the GENBAND Application Server (EXPERiUS R11.2) will interoperate within their networks and support certain Multilevel Precedence and Preemption (MLPP) capabilities. Certification further affirms the solution’s ability to comply with tested Information Assurance requirements associated with security and survivability services.
