TORONTO, ONTARIO–(Marketwire – Jan. 11, 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 that that Technology Marketing Corporation (TMC), a global media company, has named its Vega 5000: Analog Media Gateway as a recipient of the 2011 INTERNET TELEPHONY Product of the Year Award.

“We are delighted that the editors and executives TMC and Internet Telephony Magazine have recognized the Vega 5000 for its reliability and flexibility in solving the interconnectivity issues that continually challenge network service providers and enterprises,” said Frederic Dickey, director of product management of Sangoma. “As more and more customers look to leverage cloud- and IP-based applications and features, gateways like the Vega 5000 will become an essential solution for connecting these emerging solutions with legacy hardware and network service.”

Designed to simplify the integration of legacy voice communications systems with an IP infrastructure, the Vega 5000 provides companies with a cost-effective option for leveraging new IP-based technologies within their existing infrastructure. The Vega 5000 is a 1u rack-mountable chassis supporting from 16 to 50 FXS ports for analog telephone stations, two FXO ports for PSTN connectivity, and full-duplex Ethernet connectivity to an IP infrastructure. It provides support for many popular voice codecs and protocols for voice, fax and modem connectivity, and has built-in enterprise-class calling and call control features such as least cost routing, call waiting, call forwarding, conference and hold. Designed to meet the requirements of telecom service providers, the Vega 5000 is certified to be connected to public and IP networks throughout the world.

“The Vega 5000: Analog Media Gateway displays quality and innovation and addresses tangible business needs in the marketplace,” stated Rich Tehrani, chief executive officer, TMC. “This product is certainly deserving of Product of The Year Recognition. I congratulate the entire team at Sangoma for their success, and for their commitment to advancing IP communication technologies.”

According to Alexander Orlov, chief technology officer for ThreeLine, a telecommunications equipment provider located in Russia, the Vega 5000 is ideal for delivering robust voice services in high density residential deployments. “Our customers are very satisfied with both the reliability and cost-savings they’ve achieved by deploying the Vega 5000 Gateway. This solution allows service providers and enterprises to extend the lifecycle of their existing network infrastructure, as well as roll out IP services to users. These capabilities have a very profound impact on their bottom line.”
