TelcoBridges Tmedia TMG800 Named “Best-Product Launch” at ITEXPO EAST 2009

ITEXPO “Best-of-Show” Recognition is TelcoBridges’ Seventh Overall Award for Members of the Tmedia Product Family


Montreal, Canada, February 10, 2009 – TelcoBridges™ Inc., the preferred hardware and software supplier for telecom system integrators and solution developers, today announced that Technology Marketing Corporation (TMC) has awarded TelcoBridges an ITEXPO Best-of-Show award – in the new product launch category – for the debut of the TelcoBridges Tmedia™ TMG800™ product.

The Tmedia TMG800 is an extensible media gateway that meets the needs of service providers, system integrators and solution developers looking to cost-effectively expand the edge of their network footprint, or quickly deploy value-added services.  The TMG800 provides capacity from 1 to a maximum of 8 T1/E1/J1 interfaces (up to 256 universal VoIP channels).  As service uptake increases, the capabilities of the 1U form factor TMG800 can be extended with expansion cards for VOIP and software license upgrades for each additional T1/E1/J1 port.

Similar in design to the award winning TelcoBridges TMG3200™ media gateway, the lightweight TMG800 version is competitively priced and targeted towards low-to-medium density locations where economies of scale do not warrant larger configurations.

In addition to launching the TMG800 at ITEXPO, TelcoBridges also unveiled a “TDM-for-Free” campaign, which runs until the end of March.  This booking program provides significant incentives on the TMG800 and the TMG3200.  For more information, please visit:

“We had a great launch at ITEXPO, which included a pre-show TMC webinar, an event-based promotional campaign, and an extensive outreach campaign to our partners, customers, prospects, and the media,” said Danny P. Blouin, vice president of marketing for TelcoBridges.  “We’re pleased to see TMC recognize these efforts with a best-of-show award for this successful product launch.”
