Toronto, Canada and Paris, France — (Marketwire – May 4, 2012) – Sangoma Technologies Corporation, a leading provider of hardware and software components that enable or enhance IP communications systems for both voice and data, together with IT-LOGIQ, its France-based distribution partner, announced that Option Service, a provider of telecommunications services throughout France, has selected Sangoma’s NetBorder SS7 VoIP Gateway for interconnection with France Telecom’s SS7 network. Option Service operates over 1500 xDSL links used by businesses and enterprises for voice and data connectivity services.
“We are delighted that Option Service selected the Sangoma NetBorder SS7 VoIP Gateway for interconnection with the France Telecom network,” stated Xavier Paour, president of IT-LOGIQ. “We were confident that the reliability and ease of integration offered by the NetBorder solution will provide Option Service with cost-effective network signaling interconnections that are compatible with the French SPIROU SS7 protocol variant.”
Comprised of field-proven SS7 and SIP protocol stacks and control software, and award-winning digital PSTN interface boards, Sangoma’s NetBorder SS7 VoIP Gateways is one of a broad array of Sangoma products that address the need to interconnect disparate networks, technologies, protocols, and applications throughout the enterprise environment.
According to Philippe Laredo of Service Option, “While SPIROU compliance is an absolute requirement for connection to the France Telecom network, the ease with which we were able to integrate the Sangoma technology with our VoIP solutions truly set it apart, and sealed our selection.”
Service Option provides IP Telephony services to small businesses through large enterprises through service models that include on-premise IP-PBX deployments, gateway services to existing legacy PBX systems, and fully hosted services.
