Acme Packet’s Net-Net product family consists of the Net-Net OS software platform, 2600, 3000, 4000 and 9000 series systems, 4000 ATCA blade, and the EMS and SAS management tools. The Net-Net OS can be configured to provide SBC, MSG or SRP functions on any of the hardware platforms. The brand name "Net-Net" reflects the role of these products in interconnecting IP networks for voice, video and multimedia services.
Acme Packet SBCs provide control functions to deliver trusted, first-class interactive communications—voice, video and multimedia sessions—across IP network borders. They support multiple applications in service provider, large enterprise and contact center networks—from VoIP trunking to hosted enterprise and residential services to fixed-mobile convergence.
Acme Packet MSGs enables fixed-mobile substitution and convergence by securing the delivery of voice and data services over untrusted Internet and WiFi networks to femtocells and dual-mode endpoints.
Acme Packet SRPs overcome the challenges inherent in routing large numbers of SIP-based voice, video, instant messaging and multimedia sessions within and between the service provider networks.
