Sangoma Technologies Corp., a provider of hardware and software components for voice and data IP Communications Systems, has commenced commercial shipments of its B500 Basic Rate Interface (BRI) Telephony Interface Board.
Designed for simple integration with open source projects, including Asterisk and FreeSWITCH, as well as other open source and proprietary PBX, Switch, IVR and VoIP Gateway applications, the B500 is a connectivity solution for solution developers.
“There are a tremendous number of small businesses around the world that use ISDN BRI for cost effective PSTN connectivity. We’re pleased to offer this solution that can enable new and innovative products to be produced for this significant market,” said Frederic Dickey, Sangoma director of product management, in a statement. “Sangoma’s B500 BRI Telephony Interface board allows developers to create compelling telecom products and services aimed at specific niches where BRI is the PSTN connection of choice.”
The board expands to support two or four Basic Rate ports, each configured independently as either network (NT) or user (TE) configuration. Full support is available for Asterisk and FreeSwitch as well as many other open-source and proprietary PBX, IVR and general VoIP solutions. The B500 also supports both Windows and Linux operating systems. Optional telco-grade echo cancellation algorithms can be implemented on-board to minimize any potential impact on the host server CPU, and the B500 supports a broad range of media codecs to ensure compatibility with most VoIP applications and networks.
