Ingate Systems to Offer New Software-Only E-SBC: Enterprise-Class Session Border Controller Can Be Installed on Virtual Machines or Many Supported Servers

MIAMI, FL--(Marketwire - Feb 1, 2012) - ITEXPO EAST -- Ingate® Systems, a leading provider of Enterprise Session Border Controllers (E-SBCs) that enable SIP communications such as SIP trunking and Unified Communications beyond the protected enterprise network, announces the new software-only version of the company's award-winning Ingate SIParator® Enterprise Session Border Controllers.

With the software version of the Ingate SIParator, all the advanced security and SIP-enabling functionality found in Ingate E-SBCs can be installed on virtual machines or natively (for higher performance) on many supported servers, thus being integrated with IP-PBXs or media gateways.

The software version of the Ingate E-SBC is intended for IP-PBX vendors, system integrators and other customers that want to deploy a large number of Ingate products on their own hardware platform. The software version of the Ingate SIParator is available now.

"The Ingate software provides a single-box solution for IP-PBX vendors and the channel community, who can now deliver Ingate's world-class E-SBC functionality fully integrated with their own hardware solutions," said Steve Johnson, President, Ingate Systems. "The industry is moving toward software-based offerings as a means of consolidating existing hardware or maintaining a single hardware platform. This trend will continue given the growing adoption of Unified Communications. Ingate is pleased to offer a software version of the Ingate SIParator in response to this increasing market demand."

The maximum number of concurrent voice sessions and total throughput varies, between typically 3,000 calls on dedicated servers and 400 on virtualized systems.

Enabling Secure Unified Communications
Like all Ingate E-SBCs, the software-only lineup enables secure SIP into the network to make trusted SIP trunking and Unified Communications possible. The software works hand-in-hand with an existing network firewall to allow SIP traffic to traverse the enterprise edge. It can also be configured with firewalling functionality to provide enterprise security for all SIP and data traffic.

The software-only E-SBC allows businesses to adopt and use SIP communications -- including SIP trunking and the full breadth of Unified Communications applications -- to reach users not only within the local area network but outside the enterprise as well.

Advanced Security Bundled Free with Ingate Products
Intrusion Detection System/Intrusion Prevention System (IDS/IPS) solutions for SIP are bundled free with all Ingate models, including the software version of the Ingate SIParator. IDS/IPS protects against attacks targeting SIP devices, such as IP-PBXs and SIP phones. IDS/IPS works in tandem with Ingate's existing security technologies for maximum security.
