Data Balance Chooses Sangoma Telephony Card for OCS Deployment to Assure 100% Up-Time for Clients' Phone System Rollouts

CLEARWATER, FLORIDA--(Marketwire - March 31, 2009) - Data Balance, a Microsoft Gold Certified managed services partner in Tampa Bay, Florida, has united Microsoft's Office Communications Server (OCS) with Sangoma Technology Corporation's A101D telephony card.

Data Balance deployed OCS internally to refine its OCS expertise, so it could roll out successful OCS solutions for clients quickly. When the company ran into challenges connecting OCS to its phone system, it instantly turned to Sangoma for a solution.

"With 100 percent up-time being critical for our clients' unified communication system rollouts, we wanted the most reliable partner possible for our gateway to the public phone network," said Jon Lawrence, president of Data Balance. "We had been using Sangoma products in Asterisk deployments and they were rock solid. So we knew Sangoma's NetBorder Express gateway would be a natural fit, because it simply becomes part of the OCS Mediation Server."

NetBorder Express VoIP Gateway Cards combine Sangoma's award-winning telephony cards with a set of software building blocks. Together they deliver a robust SIP to TDM VoIP Gateway solution, which resides in the same server as the developer's application. Integrators and developers can use NetBorder Express on their communications platforms for SIP-based applications such as iPBX, IVRs, and Conferencing Servers.

"Migration to OCS should, and can be, an evolution in simplifying communication for diverse, remote environments," said David Mandelstam, CEO of Sangoma. "That means, by its very nature, it shouldn't be exorbitant in cost, overly complicated, or require unnecessary hardware." Sangoma has evolved its own product line with this goal in mind.

"We're thrilled to have been a pioneer project for Sangoma's union with OCS," said Lawrence. "What we've learned through this collaboration separates Data Balance from our competition in the OCS space. We will be able to offer our clients a much more integrated OCS system, one that is more robust, scalable, and easy to manage, all at lower cost."
