AudioCodes has introduced VoIP for business in the Mediant 1000 Multi-Service Business Gateway (MSBG), a modular, all-in-one, networking device that combines a media gateway, enterprise-class session border controller, data router and firewall, LAN switch, WAN access, standalone survivability and an on-board general purpose server. The Mediant 1000 MSBG is a VoIP for business tool designed to address the needs of service providers and cable operators when offering IP Centrex and SIP Trunking services, as well as the needs of distributed enterprises.
For large, distributed enterprises, the benefit of the VoIP for business product lies in the ease of implementing secure and reliable inter-branch communication with an integrated product, AudioCodes explained. For both service providers and enterprises, the VoIP for business product’s standalone survivability features further guarantees continuous service offering and business continuity.
The MSBG is available through AudioCodes’ channel partners, systems integrators and services providers. Utilizing the recently announced availability of software version 5.4 for the AudioCodes Media Gateway family, existing AudioCodes customers can immediately capitalize on the first phase of the Mediant 1000 MSBG features which include VoIP for business peering and mediation. A further phased implementation of additional capabilities is planned for later this year.
