Press Release: PortaOne and Paradial Announce Interoperability of the RealTunnel© Firewall and NAT Traversal Solution with PortaOne Solutions

Paradial real connectivity

Paradial connectivity solution enables PortaOne services to work automatically and securely across firewalls, NATs, and web proxies.

Coquitlam, British Columbia and Oslo, Norway, September 4, 2007 – PortaOne and Paradial announced that Paradial’s award winning RealTunnel© firewall and NAT traversal product is interoperable with PortaOne software billing and softswitch solutions (PortaSwitch) for ITSPs. The solution allows PortaOne customers to deploy IP-media services with no worries about firewalls, NAT devices and web proxies that otherwise prevent end-users from accessing communication services.

The end-user experience of IP-media services, such as VoIP, is often disappointing due to the lack of connectivity resulting from firewalls and NAT devices interfering with SIP and H.323 traffic. The interoperable PortaOne and RealTunnel solution allow SIP and H.323 solutions to work across any firewall, NAT and web proxy without the need to reconfigure those devices. QoS is maintained and cost is kept down as RealTunnel always establishes the most efficient communication path available.

Service providers will benefit from this announcement by being able to deploy VoIP services that meet the service availability and QoS expectations of end-users. Being able to deploy VoIP services that always work – independent of where the end user is located – allows providers to focus on business objectives and lower support and production cost.”

Ingvar Aaberg, CEO of Paradial

As VoIP evolves in the enterprise market, it is essential for billing and softswitch developers to be able to offer a solution that removes the complexities of VoIP deployment, such as security, reliability and interoperability. Our PortaSIP class 5 softswitch has already provided NAT traversal solutions. Today, the combination of Paradial’s RealTunnel© with PortaOne’s VoIP billing and switching products further enhances ITSP network management capabilities to meet the market challenges.”
