Voiceworks joins TelcoBridges’ Media Gateway Partner Program

Leading West European reseller adds Tmedia™ VoIP gateways to its converged network solution offerings

MONTREAL, November 17th, 2010 – TelcoBridges Inc., a leading provider of enabling technologies for telecom network convergence, value-added services development, and network performance management, proudly announced today that Voiceworks B.V. of the Netherlands, a leading reseller of converged network solutions in Belgium, Netherlands and Luxembourg (“Benelux”), has joined TelcoBridges’ Media Gateway Partner Program. Launched by TelcoBridges in early 2010, the Media Gateway Partner Program provides member partners with access to enhanced channel pricing, new sales and training tools, and extensive product collateral that enable those same partners to easily market, sell and support converged network solutions based on TelcoBridges’ Tmedia™ family of VOIP gateways.

“As a supplier of telecommunications hardware to leading service providers, we are constantly on the lookout for transformative products. We were initially sceptical when we heard of the density provided by the Tmedia family of VOIP gateways but indeed, as they say, ‘seeing is believing’,” said Stijn Nijhuis, Purchasing Director for Voiceworks. “We are happy to say that ‘yes’, TelcoBridges has fit STM-1 connectivity as well as support for multiple concurrent TDM and IP signaling protocols into a single 1U box, and that we are proud to make such products available to our customers.”

“Voiceworks was looking for products that changed the rules, products that made the impossible seem possible or the unbelievable seem believable,” said Daniel Paradis, Vice President, Global Sales at TelcoBridges Inc. “Not only do our Tmedia VOIP gateways give Voiceworks the STM-1 connectivity and the concurrent SIP, SS7, SIGTRAN and ISDN signaling across up to 2048 non-blocking channels that they were looking for Tmedia gateways do it more cost-effectively than Voiceworks ever thought possible.”

The Tmedia family of VOIP gateways offer connectivity options ranging from 1-1024 T1/E1/J1, 1-48 DS-3 or 1-16 STM-1 interfaces, scaling to over 32,000 universal voice channels in a single system. Recognized for their high density and energy efficiency, Tmedia VOIP gateways provide support extensive support for signaling protocols—SS7, ISDN, CAS R2, SIGTRAN, SIP, and H.248 can all be run concurrently—and media handling—including T.38 fax relay and v.34 fax transmission—in a single device, enabling Tmedia VOIP gateways to perform the work of multiple devices while using the power, cooling and rack space of just one. This results in energy savings of up to 2/3rds when compared with competing products.
