04-22-2008

In4S, a leading Japanese VoIP gateway vendor, announced its VoIP gateways for small and medium business are compliant with Avaya Communication Manager. 

TOKYO, Japan - In4S Inc., a leading Japanese VoIP gateway vendor, today announced that its VoIP gateways for small and medium business, IP-Carrier Gateway for Avaya (e-Gateway®/BRI+) and Mobile Gateway for Avaya (e-MOPEX®/SIP-PBX) are compliant with Avaya Communication Manager, a leading global provider of business communications applications, systems and services. 

 

The VoIP gateways help Japanese small and medium businesses access a broader range of Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) services. Also, the Mobile Gateway enables connectivity between an Avaya IP Communications solution and wireless LAN handsets from KDDI and NTT DoCoMo, expanding the range of handset options for users.

 

The VoIP gateways now are compliance-tested by Avaya for compatibility with: Avaya Communication Manager.

 

Until now, Avaya IP Communications users in Japan have been limited in their SIP VoIP service options. But now, users can access the VoIP networks of major Japanese carriers, including KDDI's IP telephony services for enterprises, KDDI Hikari Direct, Hikari Direct over Powered Ethernet, KDDI-IP Phone via an In4S VoIP gateway. (Other major Japanese carrier's networks are scheduled for connection in due course). By utilizing SIP VoIP services, businesses can call extension numbers between their branches, free of charge, without possessing their own IP network. Because Avaya IP Communications users can now utilize a wider range of SIP VoIP services, they can also choose to utilize 050 numbers, which can be used in any area, or current 0AB-J numbers.

 

By using an In4S VoIP gateway for mobile handset connection, Avaya IP Communications users can now select KDDI's wireless LAN handset E02SA or NTT DoCoMo's FOMA/wireless LAN dual handset, in addition to the models supported so far, which are the Avaya 3616 IP Wireless Phone, the Nokia E61, the SoftBank X01NK/Nokia E61, and the Hitachi Cable WIP-3000 and WIP-5000.

 

In4S is a member of the Avaya DevConnect program - an initiative to develop, market and sell innovative third-party products that interoperate with Avaya technology and extend the value of a company's investment in its network.  

 

As a Gold member of the program, In4S is eligible to submit products for compatibility testing by the Avaya Solution Interoperability and Test Lab in Tokyo, Japan. There a team of Avaya engineers develops a comprehensive test plan for each application to verify whether it is Avaya compliant. Doing so ensures businesses can confidently add best-in-class capabilities to their network without having to replace their existing infrastructure - speeding deployment of new applications and reducing both network complexity and implementation costs.
