Frost & Sullivan selected Quintum Technologies as the recipient of the 2007 Global Frost & Sullivan Award for Product Differentiation Innovation
Palo Alto, Calif. - May 8th, 2007
Frost & Sullivan selected Quintum Technologies as the recipient of the 2007 Global Frost & Sullivan Award for Product Differentiation Innovation in the enterprise media gateway market. This award lauds the company's development of the Tenor series gateway, which features Quintum's 'MultiPath' architecture to aid easy deployment and minimum disruptions in the enterprise network.
Whether supporting legacy infrastructure, IP PBXs, unified communications, or integrating legacy equipment with VoIP communication systems, the Tenor series has been widely successful among enterprises.
Some features that make this series ideal for enterprises deploying VoIP include the 'MultiPath' switch design, dynamic call routing with a universal programmable dial plan, survivability of voice services, auto-provisioning, easy management, and a broad product line with multiple configurations.
The unique switching design of Quintum's gateways makes them very simple to deploy. The Tenor series can be connected to any existing legacy network even without any PBX modification or reprogramming. It features various sizes and configurations to meet any business VoIP infrastructure requirements.
The Tenors allow integration of legacy telephony equipment with VoIP networks using line-side ports, connections to the PSTN for local presence and back-up 911 services using trunk-side ports, and provision of intelligent call routing between legacy and VoIP connections.
"Unlike ordinary gateways, Quintum's Tenor products allow calls to be routed not just between sites but to any device or network, whether it is legacy or VoIP," says Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst, Laura Devoto. "This capability allows calls to be intelligently routed among legacy analog devices, VoIP end points, and the PSTN in a branch office deployment."
Furthermore, the Tenor series features a local SIP proxy to provide survivability. This SIP proxy enables basic essential calling functions even when the connection to the central or hosted IP PBX is lost assuring business continuity in the branch office.
The Tenor also simplifies VoIP deployment for service providers offering gateways to enterprise customers. Quintum's auto-provisioning capability allows the Tenor to connect to a provisioning server to acquire the configuration information simplifying installation.
The Tenor series features a remote manager session server (RMSS), which allows Tenors to be managed anytime, anywhere, even behind customers' NAT/firewalls. These features make Quintum's solution extremely appealing to service providers as it connects the office systems with the equipment deployed in the field.
Quintum's solutions have gained considerable popularity among multi-site businesses, as they offer them the quality of service and reliability needed on a daily basis for highly demanding environments.
"Our solutions have been gaining popularity worldwide because our products uniquely address concerns faced by enterprises and service providers who want to deploy VoIP and we are proud of Frost and Sullivan's recognition," said Charles Rutledge, Vice President of Marketing for Quintum. "Tenor VoIP products are designed to allow companies to integrate new VoIP systems to their existing voice network allowing them to migrate to VoIP at the pace they makes sense for their business."
