Ingate Systems delivers Enterprise Session Border Controllers (E-SBC) that enable SIP communications such as SIP trunking and UC beyond the protected enterprise network. The Ingate SIParator E-SBC will help companies to resolve interoperability issues while deploying the Lync Unified Communications platform.
