Sangoma Rewards Customers for Smart Hardware Swaps

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - July 6, 2008) - Sangoma® Technologies Corporation (TSX VENTURE:STC), the premium provider of PC-based hardware and software for proprietary and open source networking and telephony, announced today a contest to reward vendors who replace their old hardware with premium Sangoma hardware. Sangoma's award winning product line offers the most scalable and reliable telephony and data cards in the industry. Now Sangoma is looking to highlight customer stories on how a simple change in hardware can show huge cost and productivity dividends.

"Sangoma is doing more than providing the market with premium hardware for open source users; they continue to provide opportunities for growth, increased education, and community building to the Asterisk community. " said Vanita Suzanne, Organiser of AsterConference Asia. "Known for their lifetime warranty, they add a level of support to their users that goes beyond simple product assistance; they enable their users to succeed in multiple ways."

Creative and fun submissions have the best chances of winning. Submissions should include contact details (Name, Company name, Address, Telephone number, Email address).
