Vanguard Networks Provides New "Smart Branch" Networking Solution Vanguard 3460 Access Services Gateway

Newest Vanguard 3400 Product Allows Best-of-Breed Strategy for Higher Performance and Lower Costs

FOXBOROUGH, MA--(Marketwire - May 6, 2008) - Vanguard Networks, a global leader in advanced multi-service routing and IP telephony gateway solutions, today introduces the Vanguard 3460 Access Services Gateway (ASG), an enterprise communications solution developed for broad "smart branch" applications worldwide.

The "smart branch" abandons proprietary, rigid, single purpose boxes to enable new, productivity enhancing real-time applications through a new standards-based flexible architecture.

The new 3460 ASG supports any application in any carrier service, reducing total cost of ownership (TCO) and ensuring maximum investment protection. As enterprises transform their branch operations into new "smart branch" performance standards, they can drive new revenue opportunities with the robust routing, media gateway and modular access service architecture delivered by the 3460 ASG.

This is the second member of the 3400 ASG series family and offers a high performance, multi-service architecture, integral enterprise class security services and highly reliable business class VoIP quality to meet today's advanced branch requirements.

Vanguard 3460 ASG Enables Multi-Vendor Advantages

"In the small office category, IT decision makers sometimes compromise capabilities and best-of-breed concepts by limiting their companies to a single-vendor solution," said Ray Mota, chief strategist, Synergy Research Group, London, UK. "Lowering TCO can sometimes be best achieved by a dual-sourcing strategy. Vanguard Networks offers a unique solution and products that puts them in an advantageous position."

"Standards-based design of the 3460 ASG ensures complete interoperability in multi-vendor environments," said Juan Carlos Garcia, vice president, marketing, Vanguard Networks. "With the 3460 ASG, global customers can choose best-of-breed devices that can offer lower cost, more flexibility and better performance over proprietary solutions provided by a single vendor."

The 3460 ASG allows service providers to rapidly deploy new converged multimedia services to customers permitting the migration from proprietary PBX systems to open, SIP-based standard technologies. Integrated routing, switching and remote management capabilities allows simplified deployment to remote locations and branch offices. Vanguard Networks has deployed thousands of devices delivering converged services worldwide.
