U4EA Technologies announced it has signed a distribution agreement with NETXUSA to supply its Fusion Multi-service Business Gateways (MSBG), Home Office Gateways and Wireless LAN Controller, enabling NETXUSA customers to deliver converged IP communications services to home offices, SMBs and branch offices.
The U4EA solutions that NETXUSA will market and bundle with other technologies include the Fusion 200, 400 and 500 series MSBG and the Horizon Small Office-Home Office (SOHO) gateway that was announced last week at the Broadband World Forum event in Brussels. These MSBG and SOHO products address the converged voice, data and video needs of the SMB and Home Office telecommuter. The devices sit at the IP WAN-end user LAN demarcation boundary utilizing U4EA’s unique, patented QoS techniques that optimize the existing last-mile WAN access link. They are single-device solutions that support routing, switching, security, VoIP, QoS, session control, bandwidth management and more.
In addition, NETXUSA will offer the new Fusion 300 wireless LAN controller and Fusion 50 access points (APs), specifically designed for the SMB environment. Finally, NETXUSA will offer the Fusion 1000 TDM to IP protocol conversion signaling gateways which offer carriers of all sizes the ability to integrate legacy class 5 TDM switches/PBXs onto their IP and SIP based networks.
“NETXUSA’s leading technology partnerships with companies such as Broadsoft, Polycom and Digium will also enhance the value proposition for carriers looking to deploy an integrated end-to-end solution for the SMB and enterprise markets,” said Jeff Dixon, chief strategy officer for U4EA Technologies. “U4EA and NEXTUSA will be formulating many value-added professional service offerings to assist carriers and VARs in the turnkey service delivery of UC and mobility applications in the very near future.”
Rick Boone, president of NETXUSA, said U4EA’s MSBGs combined with NETXUSA’s product integration and provisioning capabilities “provide a one-stop shop for service providers and resellers to deliver complete SLA-based voice, video, data and security solutions. … This allows the service provider to enable multiple revenue-generating hosted network applications at the customer premise, via an SLA, while future-proofing the install for next-generation applications.”
