Here’s a look at the news that did the rounds this week in VoIP Routers.
This week VoIP Supply announced its new customizable private branch exchange (PBX (News - Alert)) solution, Sangoma PBXpress PBX Appliance, aimed at small businesses; it offers SIP trunking and analog or digital configuration options.
These three options address different needs. The SIP trunking configuration in particular is suitable for about 100 users and 30 active calls. Analog configuration is ideal for up to 20 users and eight active calls meanwhile the digital configuration option is best for up to 100 users and 30 active calls.
The solution is an open source PBX and can be pre-loaded with VoIP solutions such as Asterisk, Elastix (News - Alert) and FreePBX VoIP.
Lawo has released its JADE 2.0 virtual audio router tool for radio stations and managing audio files. JADE 2.0 allows the user to streamline tasks when multiple staff are using the application.
For example, journalists can produce news and audio link clips together while working on multiple workstations. This takes away having to produce clips in different editing suites, which can be cumbersome and time consuming. All tasks including sound-bite editing, recording from Internet livestreams, TV or radio programs, and conducting phone interviews can be managed through VoIP.
Across the pond, the University of Westminster in London will be deploying MLX Series core routers in the university, which will establish 10 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) connections across its wide area network (WAN) and data centers. This is all with a view to creating faster Internet speeds on the campus and officials hope to upgrade from 40 GbE to 100 GbE in the future. Brocade (News - Alert) MLX Series will be providing the routers and were recently chosen by the University of Westminster for the expansion.
“When you are providing IT services for international students, the appetite for faster connection speeds and greater bandwidth will just keep growing,” explained Daniel Halter, Head of IT Infrastructure at the University of Westminster.
“Our students are online constantly, often with more than one device at a time, and they expect to be able to access content, use online applications and collaborate on their studies without any interruptions,” he added.
Finally, on Thursday it was reported that Prologix Distribution, a distributor of IT products in the Middle East and Africa, had signed an Authorized Distributorship Agreement with Canadian company, Sangoma Technologies (News - Alert) Corporation.
Prologix will now sell Sangoma’s products, which includes telecom and data cards, VoIP Gateways, Session Border Controllers (SBC), Media and signal processing; all services typically used in contact center and data-communication applications globally.
