It appears from their product page that if you purchase their system they will offer an option of direct internet connectivity shortly. Interesting they also have an option of reporting via wireless GSM with a GSM card for the panel they sell.
The SIPURA option is to support existing panels.
You are correct, newer panels do have internet reporting. Problem is that there is no standard for internet reporting. For example, I have a GE/Interlogix CADDX panel along with a NX-590E card which provides ethernet connectivity. I can theoretically report with this card. It just uses a proprietary GE format. Likewise the other manufactures are also doing their own thing. However, there is a reporting standard format for regular dial-up, CONTACT-ID. Looks like they are supporting the transport of CONTACT-ID using the SIPURA.
Providing an ATA solves a lot of problems for those that have been having problems getting their panels to work with Vonage and the like. So long as you own your panel or can log into it you should be able to use the NextAlarm option.
While not perfect, these guys are eons beyond the reset of the Alarm monitoring industry who seem to be stuck in the 1970s.--
