Sangoma Bundles Free Carrier-Grade Echo Cancellation With Analog Systems

Octasic's SoftEcho provides exceptional echo cancellation for up to six analog ports

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - April 26, 2007) - Sangoma Technologies Corporation (TSX VENTURE:STC), a leading provider of connectivity hardware and software products for Asterisk(R) based solutions including VoIP, TDM voice, WANs and Internet infrastructure, is now bundling a free six-port license for Octasic's SoftEcho solution with Sangoma's standard A200 and A400 analog cards. The combination of Sangoma cards and SoftEcho provides carrier-class voice quality for six analog ports without overloading any modern PC. Easy to install, SoftEcho provides peace of mind by addressing all potential echo issues. "Although we have provided hardware echo cancellation for analog systems of all sizes for some time, the cost was rather expensive and often out of reach for those deploying smaller systems," says Sangoma Technologies president and CEO David Mandelstam. "Our agreement with Octasic allows us to deliver a robust solution providing the industry's best voice quality on systems of up to six ports at no additional cost. Above six ports the balance of cost and system load begins to favor our traditional hardware echo cancellation solutions." "Sangoma delivers high quality products to the Asterisk market," says Fabio Gambacorta, Octasic's vice president of sales and marketing. "Our hardware echo cancellation solutions have enhanced the voice quality on their cards for the high-density market. We are delighted to collaborate to meet the needs of enterprises with low-density applications, by offering our software solution pre-integrated on Sangoma's cards." Sangoma continues to bring innovation, scalability and higher density solutions to market at the request of its enterprise and telco customers. Click to see Sangoma's current solution set.
