Quintum Technologies Announces Release of UCP for Tenor VoIP MultiPath Switches and Gateways

Quintum (News - Alert) Technologies, an innovator in VoIP technologies and subsidiary of Network Equipment Technologies, Inc., has announced the release of the new Unified Communications (News - Alert) Proxy (UCP) for Tenor VoIP MultiPath Switches and Gateways.

Originally developed to support VoIP in Microsoft (News - Alert) Office Communications Server (OCS) 2007, the UCP allows multiple VoIP and TDM networks to be easily integrated together.

The UCP is designed to expand Tenor’s unique MultiPath switching capability to include enhanced call outing and SIP to SIP switching, and is now available in the entire Tenor “S” line of VoIP MultiPath Switches and Gateways.
With this new capability, “any to any” MultiPath switching between VoIP and TDM networks is now possible, including SIP to SIP calls, TDM to TDM calls and SIP to TDM calls. As a result, the deployment of new VoIP systems is simplified, ensuring easy integrating with any existing voice network element and the PSTN.

VoIP service providers can also benefit from this flexibility as it allows for the provision of a flexible customer premises gateway that can interface to all existing business voice network elements including SIP, TDM or both.
When deploying Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007, the UCP also offers the benefit that it can support multiple gateways and SIP endpoints with a single Microsoft mediation server.

This allows businesses to effectively deploy multiple gateways to support PSTN connectivity, legacy TDM PBXs, existing SIP-based IP-PBXs, existing SIP phones, and analog devices such as fax machines, all with one mediation server.

The advanced switching makes such capabilities as “fax around” available when operating in a Microsoft Office Communications Manager 2007 network. The solution interprets and directly routs calls between the fax machines and the PSTN.

This advanced switching also enables the business to extend the gateway function to branch offices to provide local PSTN connectivity and the integration of the local existing network elements.

"The Unified Communication Proxy allows the Tenor to further simplify the deployment of Unified Communications into an existing business voice network," said Chuck Rutledge, Vice President of Marketing for Quintum, in a company statement.
"The addition of the UC Proxy provides 'any to any' switching allowing businesses to better leverage the investment they have made in their existing network and minimize disruption to their operation."

"Quintum has again reinforced their position as a leader in innovation with regards to VoIP gateways," said Elka Popova, Global Program Director, Enterprise Communications for Frost & Sullivan (News - Alert), in a statement.
"The UC proxy adds significant value as companies are not simply interfacing to the PSTN, but also need to interface with existing VoIP equipment and VoIP based service providers. It is now a mix of legacy and VoIP equipment that will need to be integrated into Unified Communication networks."

VoIP continues to gain swift adoption rates in various organizations throughout multiple industries throughout the world, creating increasing opportunities for companies such as Quintum. The company has done well to focus its development on providing solutions that address key challenges that organizations face with their communications infrastructure.
