MARKHAM, ONTARIO–(Marketwired – May 8, 2013) – Sangoma Technologies Corporation (TSX VENTURE:STC), a leading provider of hardware and software components that enable or enhance IP Communications Systems for both voice and data, announced the release of the NetBorder VoIP Gateway series of products that provide up to 32 T1/E1/J1 digital telephony spans in a single carrier-class chassis. This compact product gives service providers a cost-effective and highly flexible solution for bridging disparate networks to facilitate the interworking of TDM and Voice over IP (VoIP) systems. In addition, Sangoma’s comprehensive licensing program includes access to all supported codecs, and the ability to assign any voice codec to any channel, for no additional cost.
“The new NetBorder VoIP Gateway provides cost-effective Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN) and Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) network integration for carriers and service providers of every size and technology requirement,” said Simon Horton, Sangoma director of product development. “This gateway features a carrier-grade chassis that can provide multiple levels of redundancy and resilience that are required in the highly competitive carrier marketplace. In addition, Sangoma has incorporated many features and tools to make the provisioning and maintenance of customer circuits simple and intuitive, helping carriers deliver top-quality service while minimizing the operational expenses often associated with grooming customer circuits.”
The NetBorder VoIP Gateway is packaged in a 2u rack-mount chassis that supports 16 or 32 T1/E1/J1 digital telephony spans. The system includes an intuitive operation and maintenance web GUI, on-the-fly profile synchronization and configuration management, optional redundant AC or DC power supplies, and a wide range of integrated troubleshooting and logging capabilities to ensure efficient operation. Among the VoIP features are support for a broad range of VoIP and PSTN codecs that include popular mobile and high definition codecs used by VoIP service providers throughout the world, robust dial and call routing capabilities, and support for carrier-based load balancing and network resilience.
Sangoma’s award-winning digital telephony interface technologies serve as the foundation for the NetBorder VoIP Gateway’s field-proven global interoperability with PSTN and SIP networks, including R2MFC signaling employed in many Latin American networks, as well as T1, E1, and J1 line codes used in other parts of the world. SIP V2 and H.323 VoIP protocols are also supported in the solution.
“This highly versatile solution can be employed in large-scale VoIP conferencing and hosted IVR service applications, international wholesale SIP services, large enterprise TDM to SIP interworking, softswitch to PSTN integration, or basic hosted VoIP business services,” continued Horton. “We have priced and configured the different NetBorder VoIP Gateway models to provide carriers and service providers with significant application flexibility, simple provisioning and management, and an inclusive licensing model that allows them to avoid additional costs every time they want to roll out a new feature or codec. We expect that this simple and affordable approach will be very well received by carriers worldwide.”
