Sangoma Expands Vega Series Product Lineup
New Vega Series TDM-to-IP Appliances Deliver Enterprise-Level Features in Models Priced for SMBs
Toronto, Canada — (Marketwire – March 29, 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 release of two new models in its Vega Appliance Series. The Vega 100 and Vega 200 provide the core feature set supported throughout the highly-regarded Vega Series to small- and medium-sized businesses (SMB) that require only one or two spans of digital telephony (PRI/T1/E1) access.
“These new models from Sangoma are competitively priced, and are the only solutions in the SMB price range that deliver critical features like local survivability and redundancy to protect mission-critical communication channels,” said Ricardo Javier Reus, president of Provetel Argentina SA, a Sangoma distributor located in Buenos Aires. “The Vega 100 and 200 appliances make a perfect match for our SMB customers that have demanded enterprise-class capabilities, but do not need the capacity of a four-span or larger gateway. The robust capabilities of these new Vega models demonstrate Sangoma’s comprehensive understanding of the business imperatives of these smaller, but important business operators.”
Deployable as a customer premises gateway for SIP trunking termination or PSTN access from an IP-PBX, the rack-mountable 1u Vega 100 and 200 chassis deliver up to 30 and 60 simultaneous calls or SIP sessions respectively. In addition, the devices support a broad range of audio codecs, T.38 fax, integrated call routing and dial-plan administration, as well as a variety of maintenance and survivability features that deliver easy-to-use resilience in a system sized for the SMB market.
Bypass configurability of the digital spans enables dual-chassis redundant operation if desired, and an option to connect directly to PSTN trunks for emergency calling in the event of an IP network failure are just some of the key features that set the entire Vega series apart from other devices marketed to SMB operators.
“The operational needs of our customers in the SMB space are very similar to those of larger enterprises,” said Simon Horton, director of product management for Sangoma. “These new models deliver the full resiliency, reliability, and quality that customers have come to rely upon from the larger capacity units in the Vega Series, in packages that are aligned with the capacity and budgetary requirements of the SMB market.”
