TelcoBridges Introduces Slim Media Gateway to Help Service Providers Minimize Operating Expenses

TelcoBridges Trims Form Factor of Tmedia Gateways by Half Without Compromising Performance or Reliability

Montreal, Canada, September 12, 2016 – TelcoBridges, the leading designer and manufacturer of carrier grade VoIP media gateways and session border controllers (SBC), today announced that all of its products, including its flagship Tmedia gateways, are now available in a 1U form factor.

For more than a decade, 2U Tmedia gateways have been internationally recognized as the industry’s highest density VoIP gateways. Now reduced to a slim 1U size, the new Tmedia gateways offer even greater performance and efficiency. New enhancements built into the 1U design help maximize thermal efficiencies, thus improving the MTBF of the product. As a result, the new 1U Tmedia gateways, as well as Tsbc session border controllers, provide all of the performance and reliability that TelcoBridges is known for – but in a smaller, more OPEX-efficient form factor.

“Most telecommunications equipment was designed when power was cheap and when energy savings were less important,” said Richard Gendron, CEO of TelcoBridges. “But today, rack space, power and cooling bills represent some of the largest operating expenses for service providers of all sizes. The enhancements we’ve built into the Tmedia gateways help customers reduce their TCO (Total Cost of Ownership) without compromising on performance or reliability. It’s just one more example of TelcoBridges’ commitment to the VoIP and signaling markets.”

The new 1U Tmedia gateways comply with the most recent European RoHS2 directive, (Restriction of Hazardous Substances), which restrict the use of specific hazardous materials found in electrical and electronic products. Tmedia’s compliance with this standard assures service and solutions providers throughout Europe and in other parts of the world that Tmedia solutions can deployed into any RoHS-compliant network.

The 1U Tmedia gateways are available now. TelcoBridges will showcase the new gateways, and its new session border controllers, at upcoming TB Academy training sessions. More details are available at:
