CenturyLink Enterprise Voice SIP Services

[CenturyLink Enterprise Voice SIP is] good for environments that require tried and true SIP services, where high-quality voice is a requirement, and backed by a large, global company, with global footprint. CenturyLink voice is also well-suited to environments that want to use MPLS to interconnect their offices, as the same voice circuits can be used for data as well; however, the circuits are relatively expensive, even as far as MPLS goes, and watch out for Lumen's "fees" that often aren't included when you see their quote. Also beware if you require a rapid turn-up or have a very small or inexperienced staff, as MPLS with BGP deployments are great once they're up and running, but can be complex to design and implement.

Then look into HP SF CNA's, they are a great fit in most data centers.

When optimizing ethernet and fiber topos, performance is always key. HP SF CNA's outperform every other hardware platform we tested. Add in the dependability of the HP SF CNA's specifically and HPE generally then you can see why we chose HP StoreFabric CNA's.
