ADTRAN Introduces New IP Business Gateways

By Executive Editor, TMC

ADTRAN’s new Total Access 900e Gen 3 series of Ethernet and Multi-T1 IP business gateways combine routing and voice features to enable carriers with SIP/MGCP VoIP networks to deliver services like SIP trunking and hosted PBX. The company describes the products as an updated line of business-class IP Business Gateways with higher performance, more memory and more features to support bandwidth, application and services demands of businesses.

This Total Access 900e family, the third generation in the line, offers a 66 percent increase in router performance, which allows it to support services at up to 100mbps; an additional routed gigabit Ethernet interface; hardware-based encryption; and more flexibility in hardware configuration, including optional Foreign Exchange Office interfaces.

ADTRAN’s Jeff Wissing, senior product manager, unified communications, enterprise networks division, is at ITEXPO in Vegas, which runs through August 29.

“The Total Access 900e third gen delivers higher bandwidth, more security and supports additional services and applications to satisfy the needs of tomorrow’s fast-paced and high-bandwidth business environment, at no additional cost,” says Chris Thompson, director of product management for ADTRAN.

In other news from ADTRAN today, the company announced the NetVanta 6250 IP Business Gateway, which features 175mbps support, up to three PRIs of simultaneous voice traffic, built-in interfaces for fiber and gigabit Ethernet, a USB slot for 3G/4G backup and storage, and battery backup.

The company also used this new product announcement as an opportunity to note it has been named by Frost & Sullivan as the leader in the VoIP access and SIP trunking segment. The research and consulting firm in its Global Enterprise Media Gateway Market coverage said ADTRAN has more than 70 percent market share in this arena in terms of units shipped. 

“Frost & Sullivan's research clearly shows that by designing enterprise products from the ground up to support multiple services and roles, ADTRAN delivers a strong investment protection message coupled with the flexibility to deliver ongoing software capabilities for the ‘next big thing’ in the unified communications arena,” says Rob Arnold, senior analyst for information and communication technologies at Frost & Sullivan.
