By David Sims, TMCnet Contributing Editor
Addressing what company officials say is, “the growing demand for Enterprise Session Border Controllers (E-SBCs) among large enterprises,” Ingate Systems (News - Alert) has announced the new Ingate SIParator 96 E-SBC and Ingate Firewall 2960, described as “two high-capacity products that enable secure SIP communications such as SIP trunking and Unified Communications (News - Alert) beyond the protected enterprise network.”
Announced today, at ITEXPO West 2010, the SIParator 96 and Firewall 2960 are the highest-capacity products offered by Ingate to-date, part of what company officials say is a “complete refresh of the full line of Ingate Firewalls and SIParators.”
Steven Johnson (News - Alert), president of Ingate Systems said businesses are, “accelerating their adoption of SIP trunking and are beginning to expand their use of SIP to Unified Communications. This is generating a demand for proven products like Ingate’s E-SBCs that can handle the rise in SIP usage.”
Late last year TMCnet reported that Ingate announced the company’s SIParator and SIP Trunking software module were compliant with products from Avaya (News - Alert), a provider of business communications applications, systems and services.
With the certification, “the company’s SIParator and SIP Trunking software products are now compatible with the Avaya Aura Session Manager 1.1 SIP Trunking, Avaya Aura Communication Manager 5.2 and Avaya AuraSES 4.2.”
For small businesses the company’s offering the Ingate Firewall 1190/SIParator 19. They can handle up to 50 concurrent voice (or RTP) sessions, and both have three 10/100 Mbit/s interfaces. Mid-sized enterprises are being pitched with the Ingate Firewall 1510/SIParator 51 -- “the 1510 and 51 are designed for the SMB market,” company officials say, adding that both can handle up to 150 concurrent voice (or RTP) sessions and feature a hard disk drive.
Moving up the food chain, the Ingate Firewall 1560/SIParator 56 are designed for medium-to-large-sized businesses, as they can handle up to 400 concurrent voice (or RTP) sessions and feature a hard disk drive. The Ingate Firewall 1660/SIParator 66 are designed for large enterprises, handling up to 800 concurrent voice (or RTP) sessions.
Ingate is hosting the SIP Trunk-Unified Communications Summit at ITEXPO West 2010 . The free educational seminars will highlight all the facts about SIP Trunking and Unified Communications from the industry’s top experts and will include a live demo of a SIP Trunk that is deployed in 20 minutes or less.
