Media and signaling processing vendor Sangoma Technologies Corp., is going after the Skype segment by partnering with IndustryDynamics. IndustryDynamics makes an integrated Skype gateway appliance, which now will be powered by Sangoma voice cards.
The two are targeting enterprise users with the claim the appliance can reduce corporate communication costs by as much as 90 percent. It’s meant to be designed to plug into the Internet and a variety of analog, digital, SIP and hybrid PBX systems.
The appliance offers business users free long-distance, click-to-call functionality and the ability to send SMS messages through Skype.
