INGATE® SPEAKERS, PRODUCTS SHOWCASED AT VOIP SIZZLES;
FIRST OPEN STANDARDS-BASED VOIP CONFERENCE FOR RESELLERS
Hollis, NH July 6, 2005-
Ingate® Systems www.ingate.com whose award-winning security products enable Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) communications to traverse enterprise firewalls
will be participating in VoIP Sizzles: The VoIP VAR Conference for Open Systems, the first open standards-based VoIP conference for resellers. Hosted by ABP Technology, VoIP Sizzles will focus on the opportunities and challenges faced by traditional data VARs and telecommunications dealers who are moving into the Voice over IP market.
Ingate Systems Engineering Manager, Shane Cleckler, will participate on a panel discussing solutions for Network Address Translation (NAT) traversal. Ingate Firewall® and award-winning Ingate SIParator® products will also be showcased at the event.
VoIP Sizzles will be held in Dallas from July 20-22, 2005.
Ingate Firewalls and SIParators provide an elegant and cost-effective solution for SIP-enabling the enterprise. They are unique in the way they deliver this functionality within the enterprise firewall itself while maintaining superior control and security at the enterprise network edge. Ingate products also solve the NAT traversal issues inherent in SIP communications. Since NATs hide private IP addresses from the public Internet, Ingate Firewalls and SIParators enable seamless connectivity by matching SIP communications originating from outside a company with the appropriate internal IP address.
Ingate's participation in VoIP Sizzles strengthens the company's long-standing relationship with ABP. ABP currently distributes Ingate Firewalls and SIParators throughout the U.S. and South America.
"Ingate is proud to be part of ABP's VoIP Sizzles," said Steven Johnson, President of Ingate Systems. "Interest in VoIP is at an all-time high. This event addresses a pressing need in the reseller community by providing effective strategies to enable resellers to translate this growing interest into sales."
"With Ingate Firewalls and SIParators, resellers provide SIP functionality and NAT traversal to make the deployment of SIP-based IP phones and gateways a reality," said Robert Messer, President of ABP. "The Ingate product is like the keystone of a secure but always passable bridge between the company's outside SIP phones and the corporate communications platform."
