Ingate Unveils Enterprise SIP-Enabling Products

BY JOHANNE TORRES


Ingate Systems just release two new enterprise Session Initiation Protocol (SIP)-enabling products�the Ingate Firewall 1600 and Ingate SIParator 60. The company is known for its security products that enable enterprises to solve the problem of letting (SIP) traverse their firewalls.


 

The company developed both products to measure only 1 U high, a feature that makes the Firewall 1600 and SIParator 60 fit easily into an ever-more-crowded network operations center. The new products feature six interfaces, two of which can be used at Gigabit speed; and each supports up to 360 simultaneous RTP sessions (e.g. VoIP calls).

Ingate says that the Firewall 1600 and SIParator 60 can be upgraded with a crypto accelerator, which makes the VPN even faster and relieves some pressure on the processor. The products are managed by the client�s network security administrator via a graphical html-based user interface. Ingate Firewalls and SIParators include an encrypted Virtual Private Network (VPN) termination module. In addition, both products have a new, easy-to-read display that communicates the status of the unit.

�The Firewall 1600 and SIParator 60 offer customers unique solutions for bringing SIP-based VoIP, IM, presence, and a host of realtime person-to-person IP communications to large-capacity enterprises,� said Olle Westerberg, Chief Executive Officer, Ingate Systems. �These products deliver IP PBX functionality, support for Microsoft Office LCS 2005 and SIP-enabling technology � combined with the very best in network security.�

Included with the 1600 are 10 SIP user licenses that can be used for the registration of SIP user agents, such as phones and soft clients, on the SIP registrar. Five SIP traversal licenses also come standard with the product, allowing up to five calls to traverse the Firewall at the same time. Additional SIP user licenses and SIP traversal licenses can be purchased at any time.

All Ingate firewalls are fully featured, supporting stateful inspection and packet filtering. In addition to full support of SIP, Ingate Firewalls have a proxy for all standard protocols, including TCP, UDP, FTP, and DHCP.

Included with the SIParator 60 are 50 SIP user licenses that can be used for the registration of SIP user agents, such as soft phones and soft clients, on the SIP registrar. Twenty-five SIP traversal licenses also come standard with the package, allowing up to 25 calls to traverse the firewall attached to the SIParator at the same time. Additional SIP user licenses and SIP traversal licenses can be purchased at any time.

The SIParator 60 can be configured as a part of the DMZ or in a standalone mode. Like all Ingate products, the 1600 and 60 support advanced IP PBX functions such as call transfer, call hold and voicemail. They also boast full support and compatibility for Microsoft Office Live Communications Server (LCS) 2005, allowing voice, video, IM and presence applications to work outside the LAN.
