BroadSoft (News - Alert) Inc., a provider of VoIP application software, and Dialogic Corporation, a global provider of world-class products and technologies designed for media and signal processing, have announced today that they completed interoperability validation between BroadSoft’s BroadWorks VoIP application platform and the Dialogic 2000 Media Gateway Series.
“The DMG2000 Series is a turnkey set of IP-to-PBX (News - Alert) gateway appliances designed for ease of use and broad PBX interoperability that can help businesses readily adopt VoIP services without replacing their current telephony infrastructure,” said Jim Machi, senior vice president of marketing at Dialogic (News - Alert), in a Wednesday statement.
“Achieving interoperability with BroadSoft’s BroadWorks platform further extends the market opportunity for service providers deploying hosted VoIP solutions into the legacy PBX customer base.”
“Attaining interoperability between BroadWorks and Dialogic Media Gateways means service providers, channel partners and customers will have more choices when it comes to deploying services based on BroadSoft’s BroadWorks platform," said Robert Weidenfeller, vice president of engineering for BroadSoft, in Wednesday’s statement.
Weidenfeller went on to note that "service providers are looking to expand their opportunities through competitive access solutions that the channel can easily sell and deploy. The Dialogic 2000 Media Gateway (News - Alert) Series and our BroadWorks platform can provide a strong ROI to help operators expand their opportunities with customers of legacy TDM PBX equipment."
Dialogic offers a full range of media gateways in order to connect VoIP and FoIP applications and services to PBX systems and the PSTN. These products are designed to leverage the company’s extensive market experience in enabling communications platforms to interface with a wide array of PBX systems and PSTN controls.
The company began shipping a new software release and two new DMG2000 Series gateway variants earlier this year. These variants provide failover relays that address the demand of service providers deploying services such as SIP trunking.
Failover relays on the DMG2000 Series are designed to provide service piece of mind by routing traffic over the PSTN in the event that a broadband data service link becomes unavailable.
Both BroadSoft and Dialogic stand to gain significant benefit from the valid interoperability of their offerings. Both companies will be able to expand their solutions into new markets as interoperability creates opportunities in areas where they had no prior entry. Now, with expanded portfolios and solutions offerings, BroadSoft and Dialogic will be able to extend their positioning and grow their respective market shares.
Dialogic is a Gold sponsor of Internet Telephony Conference & EXPO — the biggest and most comprehensive IP communications event of the year. ITEXPO (News - Alert) will take place in Los Angeles, California, September 16-18, 2008, featuring three valuable days of exhibits, conferences, and networking opportunities you can’t afford to miss.
