Dialogic Expands Hybrid Gateway Configurations

By Michelle Robart, TMCnet Editor

Dialogic Corporation, an international provider of world-class products and technologies for media and signal processing, today revealed that it has completed the expansion of its Dialogic 4000 Media Gateway Series (DMG4000 Series) product line in an effort to deliver enhanced compatibility with Microsoft (News - Alert) Office Communications Server 2007 Release 2 (R2).

By extending the DMG4000 Series hybrid gateway configurations, Microsoft voice partners are able to attract a wider customer base. In addition, they are helping their enterprise customers reduce their carbon footprint and energy costs by allowing them to use less servers.
Through the Microsoft Unified Communications Open Interoperability Program, Dialogic (News - Alert) is working on making the current Dialogic Media Gateways portfolio suite, including the DMG1000 Series and DMG2000 Series, qualified for the new Office Communication Server 2007.
The DMG4000 Series is a comprehensive set of integrated systems created to connect Office Communications Server 2007 R2 to existing PBX (News - Alert) systems and PSTN networks.
Companies reduce the number of servers needed to support Office Communications Server 2007 with the DMG4000 Series by integrating the mediation server role of Office Communications Server 2007 into the gateway platform.
The DMG4000 Series’ ability to run Windows Server-based applications on the gateway platform gives it the ‘hybrid’ designation.  
“The combination of Office Communications Server 2007 Release 2 and Dialogic Media Gateways provides a powerful new way for people to collaborate and offers customers a rich and integrated communications experience,” said Eric Swift, senior director of the Microsoft Unified Communications Group at Microsoft. “Dialogic is adding significant value to enterprise communications and enabling businesses to better connect people, information and business processes.”  
The new DMG4000 configurations are planned to be released to the general public in April 2009 and will interoperate with the current T1/E1 offerings with analog FXO and BRI interfaces in a hybrid gateway architecture. The new models will come packaged with mediation server software from Office Communications Server 2007 R2. The DMG4000 Series will also provide an aligned software migration path for functionality in future Microsoft unified communications software releases.
"Dialogic remains committed to Microsoft’s vision for unified communications and the value it can bring to enterprises worldwide," stated Franz-Josef Eberle, general manager of the Enterprise Gateway (News - Alert) Product Group at Dialogic. "With the efficiency gains in our new product releases, Microsoft and Dialogic can increase that value and accelerate the ROI for the resulting solution."
Dialogic will both be showcasing their ground-breaking, innovative solutions this week at the INTERNET TELEPHONY Conference & EXPO, held February 2nd – 4th, in Miami, Florida.
