TORONTO, ONTARIO–(Marketwire – Jan. 24, 2012) – 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, today announced the general release of its NetBorder SS7 VoIP Gateway appliance. This standalone gateway incorporates Sangoma’s field proven SIP and SS7 protocol stacks and interface technology, enabling seamless integration of IP and PSTN signaling.

“Today’s service providers must have a flexible and cost-effective means to bridge customers with IP-based networks to the PSTN core, while still meeting customer demands for the many cloud-based and mobility-enabled applications that are entering the marketplace at a frenetic pace. Sangoma’s proven SS7 to SIP signaling gateway is a powerful intermediation tool that will help address these often daunting challenges,” said Bill Wignall, president and chief executive officer of Sangoma. “The SS7 gateway gives service providers an essential and easy-to-deploy means to offer new IP-based features and applications to customers with TDM-based systems, as well as allow IP premise networks to integrate into a TDM-based carrier backbone.”

Sangoma provides an industry-leading solution portfolio that enables the interworking of a wide variety of disparate networks, clouds, protocols, services, devices, and applications. Its portfolio includes award-winning voice and data boards, transcoding and gateway software, and standalone gateway appliances, designed for simple integration with open source and closed source IP PBX applications. The NetBorder SS7 VoIP Gateway Appliance is the latest addition to the product portfolio which addresses the critical mediation of call setup, control, and management across disparate technology domains.

“We know from our work with service providers, that those solutions that provide simplicity and flexibility for customers will increase utilization, and in turn will drive incremental revenue,” said Bruce Clark, partner at IntelliCom Analytics. “This VoIP to SS7 gateway from Sangoma is a great example of the type of solution that we think will have a dramatic impact on service provider revenue opportunities possible by bridging between traditional and emerging applications and capabilities.”
