M5 Technologies launches SBC solution for SMB segment with Mediatrix 3000 Series

The leading provider of IP-based communications solutions M5 Technologies announces the launch of the new DGW release that allows enabling Session Border Controller (SBC) capabilities in the Mediatrix 3000 Series. The Mediatrix 3000 Series is a multi-service VoIP device combining a media gateway and now an SBC in a secure and comprehensive platform. Mediatrix 3000 Series is the preferred solution for partners deploying SIP trunking and hosted services for the SMB segment.

The Mediatrix 3000 Series ensures survivability to all extensions at customer’s premises such as IP Phones and Softphones, offering service continuity when the network access is down. It seamlessly falls back calls to the PSTN, and redirects communications back to the SIP Trunking provider when network access is re-established.

The Session Border Controller is also essential when migrating to Hosted PBX and Unified Communications (UC), ensuring secure and reliable integration with existing legacy telephony equipment.


About Mediatrix 3000 Series SBC

Mediatrix 3000 VoIP gateways and Session Border Controllers (SBC), featuring R2 CAS E1, ISDN E1 PRI, T1PRI, BRI, E&M E1/T1 PRI, or FXS/FXO interfaces, provides an ideal solution for enterprise voice applications, or for connecting to a service provider’s broadband access. Mediatrix 3000 VoIP gateways integrates legacy PBX systems and PSTN local access to IP-based telephony systems.

Mediatrix 3000 Series is also an SBC, addressing a variety of applications including Demarcation Point, Security, SIP Normalization,and Survivability. With a Back-to-Back User Agent, the Mediatrix 3000 acts as the middle-man for communications between two SIP endpoints. The application allows deep packet inspection, identifies specific properties attached to a SIP Request, and executes predefined actions to manage any particular deployment scenario. The Mediatrix 3000 also supports media relay for media anchoring, NAT traversal, and transcoding
