Plans to Incorporate Ingate SIP Trunking Technology for New Enterprise Border Element Solution

ITEXPO EAST, MIAMI BEACH, FL - January 20, 2010 -Dialogic Corporation ("Dialogic"), a global provider of world-class products and technologies for media and signal processing, announced today that it has entered into an agreement with Ingate® Systems ("Ingate") which allows Dialogic to incorporate the award-winning SIP Trunking software module from Ingate into a new enterprise border element designed to connect virtually any SIP trunk with virtually any PBX, to facilitate seamless SIP trunk deployments in legacy TDM and hybrid PBX environments, as well as new SIP-based PBX systems.

"PBX's are transitioning from the traditional TDM PBX's to hybrid PBX's, IP-PBXs, and Unified Communications solutions creating a heterogeneous TDM/SIP trunk environment and there is a significant opportunity to provide connectivity and security between public and private networks," said Franz-Josef Eberle, Vice President and General Manager for the Enterprise Market Group at Dialogic. "Dialogic is meeting this growing demand by combining Ingate's proven SIP Trunking technology with Dialogic's extensive PBX and PSTN media gateway technology."

The Ingate SIP Trunking software module provides enterprise session border control along with the advanced routing capabilities necessary to connect SIP trunks to enterprise networks and branch offices by employing Ingate's proxy-based traversal and security technology. The SIP Trunking software also is designed to resolve interoperability issues between service providers' SIP services and the SIP-based systems being deployed inside corporate data networks today.

Dialogic's media gateway technologies provide the protocols and interfaces necessary to connect with a wide variety of legacy telephony equipment and networks, both TDM and IP. The new enterprise border element from Dialogic will combine the functions normally found in a media gateway and an enterprise session border controller into a single product. The result will be a solution that is designed to connect virtually any trunk with virtually any PBX, thus helping to resolve the connectivity issues with the heterogeneous environment.

"SIP trunking has been proven to provide a rapid return on investment. The Dialogic solution will open this opportunity to enterprises with mixed PBX environments, including those using traditional PBXs," said Steven Johnson, President of Ingate Systems. "Dialogic's extensive reach will further drive SIP trunk adoption, which also primes enterprises for using all SIP communications including Unified Communications."
Dialogic plans to make a first set of enterprise border elements available later this year with product configurations offering SIP trunking legacy PBX connectivity via PRI/E1/T1 and ISDN BRI.

Dialogic will be presenting the "Legacy PBX/PSTN and SIP Trunking" session with Ingate at the SIP Trunk Summit at the ITEXPO, on January 21, 2010 in room A108/A109 at the Miami Beach Convention Center in Miami, Florida.
