CenturyLink Enterprise Voice SIP Services

CenturyLink SIP is an acceptable solution if you have an on-prem PBX (ShoreTel, Mitel, etc) that accepts SIP. I have found a better solution is to run two different carriers through SD-WAN (such as Bigleaf or Velocloud MSR) and use a provider like BCMOne (formerly NexVortex) to manage the SIP.

Do you need to combine the functionality of a NIC (Ethernet/iSCSI) and Fibre Channel HBA onto a single adapter and reducing the number of adapters and cables and space used as well as a [reduction] in operational, power and cooling costs while preserving your existing Ethernet and Fibre Channel infrastructure? Then look into HP SF CNA's, they are a great fit in most data centers. HP StoreFabric CNA's have undergone HPE interoperability testing for connecting HPE ProLiant servers into storage and networking environments.

Cons

  • The price is pretty high when compared to other CNA's, but we choose dependability and performance over cost

SIP service support is definitely improving. A few years ago I would have rated them a 2. Now a 7. But, Lumen still needs a better portal experience to report and see a real-time status. Also to manage SIP failover functions in a WYSIWIG/GUI interface. When Lumen's network breaks in a larger outage, there are long hold times and support is not good.

CenturyLink Enterprise Voice SIP Services

Compared to ATT and Verizon, we have gotten much better uptime and pricing is better as well. There is much less red tape when placing orders or getting quotes. Real, actual support is also much closer to the customer, rather than being full of AI assistants and off-shore tier-1 call center agents.

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.
