BURLINGTON, Mass.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Acme Packet® (NASDAQ: APKT), the leader in session border control solutions, today announced that JAJAH, a leading global IP telephony service provider, has deployed Acme Packet’s Net-Net® session border controllers (SBCs) to protect JAJAH’s SIP application infrastructure and dynamically optimize the quality and profitability of its IP communication platform.

JAJAH provides a fully outsourced IP communications platform, including PSTN and IP termination, billing, payments, fraud prevention and quality management.
