From ITEXPO: Telco Bridges' Tmedia TMG800

On the open day of IEXPO East 2009 in Miami, TelcoBridges (News - Alert) ( unveiled the Tmedia TMG800, their newest media gateway, which soon garnered a Best of Show Award in the “Best Onsite Product Launch” category. Unlike its larger, high-density brethren,. the Tmedia TMG 6400 and TMG3200 (the latter having recently received one of our 2008 Internet Telephony (News - Alert) Product-of-the-Year” awards), the Tmedia TMG800 brings the carrier-grade features to service providers with lower-density requirements, such as supporting remote locations, or quickly delivering value-added/hosted services.

Though similar in design to the TMG3200 Media Gateway (News - Alert), the smaller, cost effective TMG800 targets low-to-medium density locations where economies of scale don’t warrant large configurations. The TMG800 provides capacity from one to eight T1/E1/J1 interfaces (up to 256 universal VoIP channels). As service uptake increases, the capabilities of the 1U-high (1.75-inch) form factor TMG800 can be extended with expansion cards for VoIP and software license upgrades for each additional T1/E1/J1 port.

With IVR, signaling and media support for SIP, SS7, and ISDN networks, the Tmedia TMG800 routes and bridges PSTN and SIP-based calls seamlessly, providing any-to-any switching. Installation and configuration has been simplified for the quick introduction of new telephony services, including differentiating services such as SIP trunking, transcoding, VoIP peering and hosted services for FAX and IP-PBX (News - Alert). Complete with the Toolpack OAM web-based GUI for simple configurations, the Tmedia TMG800 houses an on-board Linux CPU to run custom applications, thus eliminating the need for an additional external host or other devices.

Furthermore, to celebrate Tmedia’s 2008 Internet Telephony Product of Year Award and the introduction of the TMG800, TelcoBridges announces the “TDM-for-Free ” program, a sort of “buy-one-port-and-get-one-free” deal.

TelcoBridges customers number among the world’s largest operators in over 45 countries, so they should snap up the TMG800 for immediate use. TelcoBridges equipment can be found in the world’s mobile value-added services, location-based services, video calling applications, network monitoring, media gateways, switching, IVR, unified communications solutions, and more.
