TELES Adds Media Gateway to Portfolio via New Tech Partner NewGrid

Korean vendor NewGrid joins forces with TELES as carrier-grade media gateway partner for the German NGN supplier

Berlin, Germany, July 25, 2010 --( TELES, the Berlin based Next Generation Networks and Access Gateway vendor, has announced its technology partnership with leading Korean converged network solutions provider NewGrid for their carrier-grade, low-power-footprint, and high density media gateway.

As part of the TELES NGN Solution, the NewGrid Compact Media Gateway will serve as a scalable and reliable building block for carriers and providers looking to deploy high-density, high availability VoIP systems. Combined with the TELES C4 softswitch and its extensive and comprehensive standards of protocol conformity, providers can expect smooth and seamless integration with the media gateway thanks to the rigorous interoperability tests conducted successfully prior to the agreement.

NewGrid's Marketing director, Mr. J.S. Park, is confident that the partnership with TELES will be very productive: "We are really impressed with the TELES solution, and it was clear to us from the beginning, that our Compact Media Gateway would fit nicely into their solution. The broad flexibility the TELES C4 softswitch with its proven outstanding reliability makes it the perfect match for our Compact Media Gateway."

TELES Product Marketing Director, Thomas Haydn, is strongly encouraged by the new technology partnership: "Our partnership with NewGrid, and the inclusion of their excellent Compact Media Gateway alongside a TELES NGN softswitch, will see our carrier and provider customers benefit from a major increase in its price-performance ratio in addition to improved services for growing traffic. NewGrid's media gateway only takes up a single unit of rack space, and together with our softswitch represents an ideal solution for conserving power and resources. It fits perfectly into the gap between the small and mid-sized media gateways in our NGN portfolio, so that we are now in an excellent position to meet the requirements of a whole host of scenarios."

The Compact Media Gateway offers either 16 or 32 E1s or an STM-1, provides carrier-grade reliability, and complies with industry standard protocols (MEGACO, SIGTRAN, etc.) Its compact size is also an important factor, with lower power consumption requirements and less rack space required, it combines with the TELES NGN solution to reduce not just costs, but also environmental impact and carbon footprint.

TELES C4 Softswitch meets all carrier-grade requirements including full component redundancy, multi-protocol support, and five-nines availability. The C4 Softswitch is one of the most highly scalable solutions available – suitable for small and large-scale configurations alike, offers cutting edge performance, and is ideally suited to high peak loads and short call duration value-added services.
