Anil Sharma, TMCnet Contributing Editor

Quintum (News - Alert) Technologies, a provider of VoIP technologies and a subsidiary of Network Equipment Technologies (News - Alert), introduced its new Tenor Hybrid Gateway 60. The new gateway is built on Quintum’s Tenor switching intelligence, and is Microsoft (News - Alert) Mediation Server-ready to simplify deployments of Microsoft-based unified communications (UC).
The Tenor Hybrid Gateway 60 is integrated on an Intel SR-1500 1U server with Intel Quad-Core Xeon processors. It supports up to 60 simultaneous VoIP calls, with up to two T1/E1/PRI spans.
A single box solution, the new hybrid product has been specifically designed to allow customers to easily integrate Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007 with legacy and IP-based PBXs, analog endpoints, fax, and modem-based devices, while providing connectivity to the public switched telephone network (PSTN).
The Tenor Hybrid Gateway 60 is currently available, and has a starting list price of $9,750. It contains Quintum’s new Unified Communications Proxy (UCP), enableing Tenor to provide intelligent, MultiPath connectivity between VoIP, Legacy telephony (TDM) equipment and unified communications with any-to-any call routing, including SIP – SIP, TDM – TDM and SIP – TDM connections.
Providing a host of benefits the UCP offers the ability to deploy multiple gateways behind the Tenor Hybrid Gateway 60 to simplify the deployment of multiple gateways distributed within the headquarters network, as well as those deployed in branch offices. It also provides TDM to TDM switching to support fax and modem equipment on the same PSTN connections as are being used by Office Communications Server 2007.
“The Tenor Hybrid Gateway was designed specifically to address the needs of enterprises looking to deploy Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007 and VoIP while leveraging the investment that has been made in the existing TDM and/or VoIP networks,” Chuck Rutledge (News - Alert), Vice President of Marketing for Quintum said in a statement. “This single box solution not only eases integration across IP and legacy networks, it eliminates the need for a separate mediation server and reduces TCO, as well.”
