Sangoma Technologies unveils T3Mux appliance


Sangoma Technologies, a provider of hardware and software
components that enable or enhance IP Communications Systems for both voice and
data, announced that it has shipped the first unit of its newest product, the


The T3Mux connects to a DS3 via a coaxial BNC connection
from a Telco provider and grooms the signal to individual T1 circuits via 14
RJ-45 connectors with each connector carrying two circuits. This is directly
compatible with the full line of Sangoma digital interface boards, including
the A101, A102, A104 and A108.


“The T3Mux was created in direct response to
customer requests, particularly for use in large data centers and Telco
operations,” said Frederic Dickey, director of product management at Sangoma Technologies.


It allows a customer to order a DS3 interface from their
provider, which is less expensive than ordering individual circuits when an
implementation requires a significant number of T1s. It also makes the
installation and maintenance easier and less costly as it simplifies cabling.


Plus, the T3Mux is guaranteed to be interoperable with
other Sangoma products that our customers are already using in their installations.
This release demonstrates our commitment to be ‘Not Just a Board Company
Anymore’ as Sangoma continues to sharpen the focus on product innovation to
broaden our portfolio.


While Sangoma now has the Vega Media Gateways from the
acquisition announced two weeks ago, this is a significant release for Sangoma,
because it is the first appliance-based product developed by the company.


Sangoma Technologies recently announced the release
of the latest version of their NetBorder SS7 Media Gateway, formerly known as
Sangoma Media Gateway (SMG).


Improvements in this version include the addition of
Telco grade SS7 protocol stacks with multiple ISUP Variants, a single ISO-based
installation process, and a Web-based GUI for easier installation,
configuration and management of the system.
