Oracle Improves Communications and Reduces Costs with SIP Trunking

Oracle has their Acme Packet Net-Net Enterprise Session Director Enterprise Session Border Controllers (E-SBCs) to enable secure and reliable SIP (Session Initiation Protocol) trunking services.

Flexibility in the Cloud

As the pace of technology continues to accelerate, business leaders need to respond quickly to meet their customer expectations for consistent and integrated multichannel support.

A consumer should be able to buy a product and expect the service they need at the store, on a website, or by contacting the call center. But the reality is that many companies are failing to provide a suitable customer experience that offers these options.
