UniVoIP deploys Mitel phones and MiNet™, an unpublished Stimulus Protocol that use digitally encoded name/value pairs to transmit information. The secure MiNet and Secure Real-Time Transport Protocol (SRTP) privacy and confidentiality benefits apply specifically to Internet based connectivity between your company phones and our data-centers.
At UniVoIP, all voice packets passed between the remote IP phone and UniVoIP data centers are encrypted using the SRTP with 128-bit AES encryption.
- SRTP is a security profile for RTP, which is the industry standard for securing voice streams over IP.
- SRTP adds confidentiality, message authentication and replay protection to that protocol.
- SRTP protects VoIP traffic because it can be used with header compression, and it does not affect Quality of Service (QoS).
- SRTP also insures compliance with Federal standards for FIPS 140-2 Certified Encryption for signaling as well as the voice traffic is being met.
- SRTP delivers protection to onsite and remote voice communications.
- Mitel SRTP meets the requirements for the Department of Defense PKI digital certificate compliance.
At UniVoIP, we are protecting the privacy and integrity of the MiNET signaling messages. Call-signaling traffic is sent across the network using a 128-bit AES TLS/SSL encrypted version of MiNET. This secure MiNET traffic is only accepted from devices that have been authenticated within UniVoIP data center farms.At these data centers, Session Border Controllers (SBC) are also in place to provide protection against potential voice network attacks.
At UniVoIP we encrypt the Signaling and the Voice Traffic on all Mitel phones at no additional cost.
Stay Secure With MiNet
As a Stimulus Protocol, MiNet is a secure, cloud-based communication tool that delivers several advantages to your organization, which is crucial for financial, healthcare and nonprofit industries that handle sensitive information from clients, donors and other parties. MiNet provides an intelligent server — not a peer-to-peer server like Session Initiative Protocol (SIP).
MiNet’s Stimulus Protocol reduces the amount of phone software needed and ensures its maintenance and updates remain on the server level, which is an easier arrangement for service providers when compared to SIP, which requires more maintenance from your provider.
Safeguard User Interfaces With Secure Hypertext Transfer Protocol
We safeguard our secure, cloud-based communication tools — in addition to encryption — with several other safety precautions. Each user interface for our secure, cloud-based communication solutions includes IP handsets, mobile and desktop applications.
Online portals are also password-protected and use Secure Hypertext Transfer Protocol to ensure your data in the cloud remains protected from unauthorized access.
Deliver Additional Protection With MPLS Circuit
A Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) circuit is an additional option we offer to further secure your voice communications. Our MPLS private network delivers a private link for voice traffic between our data centers and the customer’s site.
Increasing your security with our MPLS circuits delivers several advantages, including:
- Reduction of costs ranging from 10 to 40 percent.
- Prioritization of traffic
- Allowance of dynamic bandwidth allocation and quality of service (QoS)
- Utilization of technology that leverages top tier 1 networks.
MPLS is versatile and provides performance, which is why it’s the fastest-growing WAN technology available.

- Most VoIP Phone Service Providers are deploying SIP based Phones. SIP is a widely used standard with its content transported as readable text. Unfortunately this makes it an attractive target for hackers.
- Broadband service-providers have been known to search for SIP messages (signaling messages) and RTP packet, containing the voice conversation, and restrict their use on their networks.
- Most Internet based VoIP Service Providers are NOT Encrypting the voice traffic nor signaling message, making your conversation pretty much open to the public Internet.
