innovaphone tests the compatibility of SIP providers

Demand for All IP is increasing as analogue and ISDN networks throughout Europe are currently being switched over to standard Internet Protocol (IP). In some countries, the conversion to All IP is already almost finished everywhere and the ISDN switch-off is thus almost fully completed. Telephony, television, video or mobile communication: soon all communication channels across Europe will only be operated via Internet Protocol. Providers are currently expanding their offerings to include SIP connections as demand is increasing thus enabling customers to switch to All IP. innovaphone is constantly busy with compatibility tests for new SIP connections that are to be certified to the innovaphone PBX.


A list of successfully tested SIP connections can be found here in our wiki. Below is a selection of providers, whose SIP connections have been tested by innovaphone in recent years: 

  • O2
  • Peoplefone
  • Phonect
  • Proximus
  • Vodafone


innovaphone in practice: Ganter Interior 

Ganter Interior deploys an innovaphone communication solution on a global scale


Armani and de Beers, Nespresso and Luis Vuitton, Prada and Lindt & Sprüngli - the list of Ganter Interior’s reference customers reads like the Who is Who of international premium brands. The company, registered in the Black Forest, realizes room concepts to perfection on a global scale and according to the highest functional standards and at a splendid design standard. Some 350 employees work at Ganter in Germany, Switzerland, Italy, France, England, China and the US.


The starting position at Ganter Interior in Waldkirch was typical: The longserving telephone system of a renowned manufacturer had become obsolete and was no longer able to fulfill the requirements placed on a modern communication infrastructure. The new infrastructure considerably reduced administration efforts. In particular, companies with multiple branches can draw significant advantages from the central administration of the innovaphone PBX because the PBX can be managed across multiple sites - encrypted and convenient via the Web browser.


As modern Unified Communications applications in general and especially video telephony were to be made available at company headquarters, the newest innovaphone firmware was implemented and the innovaphone PBX was set up virtually as a software application. The innovaphone Virtual Appliance (IPVA) is installed in a VMware environment and comprises of the complete scope of service of the innovaphone PBX. “We have never had a failure on the innovaphone hardware. It has been running for months without any problems.From an ecological viewpoint, the innovaphone PBX is great. The components are made of robust stainless steel, do not radiate much heat and do not require any power-consuming fans. Thus, the new PBX really fits to our sustainable company philosophy.” Steffen Olbrich explains, IT manager at Ganter Interior.
