AudioCodes Announces Media Gateway Platform for Carriers and Enterprises

AudioCodes introduced its Mediant 1000 VoIP Media Gateway designed for carrier and enterprise applications. The compact media gateway interfaces between TDM & IP networks in enterprises or small-scale carrier locations.

The open platform on the Mediant 1000 offers partners the option to host their own applications (e.g., IP-PBX or call center application) using a powerful, low-power processor and hard disks to provide a complete solution within the Mediant 1000 chassis. The Mediant 1000 has enhanced hardware and software capabilities to ease its installation without requiring routing modifications in the PBX. It is expected to be available for general release during the second quarter of 2005.

The Mediant 1000 is based on AudioCodes' VoIPerfect architecture, which is used in all the company's product lines, ranging from voice over packet processors to high-density media gateway platforms.
