Ingate Systems has upgraded its portfolio with enhancements to its SIParator/Firewall hardware and software line of Enterprise Session Border Controllers (E-SBCs). These updates are designed to offer new functionality and support growth, and are accompanied with a new licensing and pricing structure intended to simplify product selection.

For smaller organizations, the SIParator/Firewall S21 has been upgraded to support up to 400 sessions; the previous version supported up to from 50 sessions. The S52 manages up to 2,000 concurrent calls. A software-based SIParator/Firewall E-SBC for virtual machines can be licensed for up to 2,000 concurrent calls.
For larger network demands, the SIParator/Firewall S95 now supports up to 4,000 concurrent calls (up from 1,800), and the platform now provides redundant hard disks and power supplies. For the largest organizations’ demands and to serve carriers, the SIParators/Firewalls S97 and S98, are now NEBS-compliant , they offer options for 48V DC power supplies, and can manage handle up to 8,000 and 20,000 concurrent calls respectively.
The new portfolio additions are available for delivery now, and Ingate’s new licensing and pricing structure applies to the new products; purchasers can buy or upgrade SIP trunk sessions, remote user sessions and/or SIP server registrations as needed.
Commenting in a statement on the portfolio and pricing changes, Steven Johnson, President, Ingate Systems said, “The functionality and capacity of Ingate’s SIParators have become increasingly popular with service providers and carriers, beyond the typical enterprise SIP trunking usage. The updated product line and licensing adapts to all customers, who can now simply design and buy what they need, which will give them a system that will grow with them.”
He added, “Ingate products have also found new applications like telephony wholesale businesses taking advantage of the SIParator’s advanced SIP call routing at high capacity. This is yet another field in which Ingate delivers outstanding features and pricing.”
