TelcoBridges Announces the Tmedia Hybrid SBC Gateway

Software Upgrade Enables Customers to Turn Tmedia Gateways Into Fully-fledged Session Border Controllers

Montreal, Canada: October 19, 2016 – TelcoBridges today announced the Tmedia Hybrid SBC Gateway, which enables Tmedia gateway customers to leverage a one-time software download to turn their Tmedia gateway into a fully-featured session border controller using the same hardware. Created for service providers who want to maximize their CAPEX investments, the Tmedia Hybrid SBC Gateway extends the functionality of Tmedia gateways and enhances their ROI in the process. The cost advantages of this new Tmedia SBC Hybrid are significant, due to the simple software upgrade, the ease of operation, and the same Graphical User Interface for operating both the media gateway and the SBC functions.

“The Tmedia Hybrid SBC Gateway future-proofs the purchase of a media gateway by creating a simple upgrade path from media gateway to session border controller using the exact same hardware,” said Richard Gendron, CEO of TelcoBridges. “As we stated earlier this year during our Tsbc session border controller launch, we have listened to feedback from our customers seeking an SBC that seamlessly integrates with the Tmedia gateways and the TB Analytics troubleshooting tools. By combining these products we can help our customers accelerate deployments, streamline network operations, increase revenue, ease the transition from TDM to SIP and obtain peace-of-mind that comes with revenue protection and increased network security.”

Announced 90 days ago, TelcoBridges session border controllers have already been deployed in the Americas and Europe to help service providers and wholesale carriers interconnect with other carriers using SIP. Carriers of all sizes continue to adopt SIP as the de facto technology for network interconnections. Service providers need a solution for VoIP network peering – such as the Tsbc, and now the Tmedia SBC Hybrid – that they can count on.
