A quick look at the Sangoma Vega Gateway Range
Sangoma, founded in 1984, is a Canadian based leading manufacturer of hardware and software components in the VoIP market. Today we are going to un-box and have a quick look at the Sangoma Vega Gateway range and explain the differences between the Sangoma Vega Gateway products.
The Sangoma Vega series is available in five separate models and offers a range of IP-to-TDM stand-alone gateway devices, designed to bridge different technologies easily and cost-effectively.
The Sangoma Vega VoIP Gateway range supports ISDN BRI and PRI, FXS, FXO line codes and protocols for installations ideal for small businesses to large enterprises and carriers.
Sangoma are continuing to develop on Vega range and during a recent interview with VoIP uncovered, Simon Horton, the company’s UK General Manager and Director of Product Management said:
We’re working really hard right now on developing our next generation of gateways. Our roadmap includes new versions that will have different product entities. On the digital side, we’re working from fractional E1 right up to 8 trunks of E1, so 240 simultaneous calls. On the high density analog side, the Sangoma Vega 5000 Gateway, we are looking at 24 to 50 analogue ports with different technical capabilities to address two markets: One lower cost with fewer capabilities and a more feature-rich, more flexible model. Incidentally, we see really good traction on high-density gateways in emerging markets, where analog telephony is prevalent and very cost effective”
