Ingate® Systems and Brekeke Announce Interoperability of Ingate SIParator® and Brekeke PBX

HOLLIS, NH and SAN MATEO, CA--(Marketwire - June 11, 2008) - Ingate® Systems (www.ingate.com), which develops firewall technology and products that enable SIP communications for the enterprise while maintaining control and security at the network edge, and Brekeke Software, Inc. (www.brekeke.com), developer and manufacturer of award-winning SIP communication technologies, announced today the successful interoperability of Ingate's award-winning line of Ingate SIParator® products and Brekeke's SIP-based IP-PBX, Brekeke PBX.

The successful completion of rigorous interoperability testing offers users a complete solution that works seamlessly together to provide enterprises using the Brekeke PBX the ability to deploy SIP trunks and support remote users with the highest level of security for VoIP and other realtime communications applications.

"Interoperability testing simplifies deployments, ultimately increasing the rate of SIP adoption," said Steven Johnson, president, Ingate Systems. "Using the Brekeke PBX with an Ingate SIParator also allows enterprises to leverage the full breadth of applications available with the SIP protocol, including IM and video, as well as VoIP, and to do so outside the LAN."

Ingate's SIParators make it possible for enterprises to connect the Brekeke PBX to a service provider's SIP trunk by solving the Network Address Translation (NAT) traversal issues with the protocol while maintaining the security and integrity of the network. SIP trunks rapidly reduce costs by eliminating the need for an enterprise PSTN gateway, unused BRI/PRI capacity, expensive and underutilized phone lines or trunks at remote offices, and by providing PSTN termination in the local area.

With an Ingate in place, remote and mobile workers can utilize the Brekeke PBX at a central location as if they were in the office, allowing employees working from home, small offices, hotels and other locations to benefit from all of the tools that are available from the Brekeke product. With Ingate's Remote SIP Connectivity feature, no new hardware or software is required at the remote site.

"The Ingate SIParator is an ideal compliment to the Brekeke PBX. Together, they provide a secure, highly scalable and reliable solution to meet the needs of hosted PBX environments, small satellite offices and large enterprises. We are excited to announce this validation of interoperability with the SIParator especially for our customers and partners who use our Brekeke PBX for hosted services. Utilizing Ingate's SIParator along with Brekeke PBX in a hosted environment can dramatically cut costs and traffic issues for them," said Shin Yamade, president and CEO, Brekeke Software. "We are proud to be working with Ingate, to provide users with a complete, fully interoperable solution."

Brekeke PBX has been deployed into numerous IP-PBX hosted services as their platform product, and has been very successful in providing secure and reliable communication for their customers. This validation of interoperability with the SIParator offers SIP telephony service providers additional benefits and advantages through both Ingate's firewall technology and Brekeke's SIP technology. Brekeke's award-winning product, Brekeke PBX, is a full-featured IP-PBX system, easily managed through a Web-based administrative interface and supporting both Windows and Linux OS.
