Sangoma Reduces Implementation Costs Associated with BRI Products
Reduced Price and Direct Integration with DAHDI can Reduce Implementation Costs by Nearly 50%
TORONTO, ONTARIO–(Marketwire – Nov. 14, 2011) – Sangoma Technologies Corporation (TSX VENTURE:STC), a leading provider of hardware and software components that enable or enhance IP Communications Systems for both voice and data, today announced that they have reduced the price of their Sangoma A500 S/T BRI Interface Board. In addition, they have also released a new version of the board firmware that is now directly integrated with the Asterisk(R) DAHDI Software Driver. This direct integration allows developers of low density BRI system to use the software-based echo cancellation that is included in Asterisk so that they no longer have the additional expense of implementing a hardware-based echo cancellation solution for low density solutions.
“This update has been on our roadmap for a while,” said Frederic Dickey, director of product management for Sangoma. “In addition, our recent acquisition of the VegaStream product line has caused us to take a close look at our EMEA focused products. In that examination, we determined that we needed to reduce the price of the A500 by 20% in order to be truly competitive in this market. The 20% price reduction, plus the fact that developers can save up to an additional $300 by using software echo cancellation instead of hardware echo cancellation, means a savings of nearly 50% on systems of four or less BRI ports when implementing using Asterisk.”
