Ingate Enables Subscribers to Securely Access NewCross Hosted VoIP Services
Delivers Far-End NAT Traversal Solution
SPRING VON, SAN JOSE -- March 14, 2006-
Ingate® Systems (www.ingate.com), which develops firewall technology and products that enable SIP-based live communication for the enterprise while maintaining control and security at the network edge, is providing NewCross Technologies, Inc., a provider of carrier-proven and cost-effective hosted VoIP services for service providers, with the technology to deliver seamless connectivity and far-end Network Address Translation (NAT) traversal, for use with NewCross’ TonePlus solution.
NewCross is using the award-winning Ingate SIParator® , a unique device that works in conjunction with an existing network firewall to seamlessly enable the traversal of SIP communications. TonePlus is a comprehensive hosted communications platform that allows companies to rapidly go to market with business and residential VoIP services over a variety of access networks including WiFi and broadband. Using Ingate’s SIParator, NewCross offers a cost-effective means for customers to deploy reliable, hosted VoIP applications quickly and efficiently.
The SIParator solves the problem of SIP traffic traversing firewalls and NAT devices. SIP-based communications do not reach users behind firewalls and NAT devices automatically, because firewalls are designed to prevent inbound communications and typically do not support the SIP protocol. Further, the NAT creates private IP addresses which are not publicly routable, meaning that inbound SIP communications cannot reach the intended recipient on the Local Area Network (LAN).
The NewCross/Ingate solution resolves this issue for TonePlus subscribers, who may be working behind a firewall/NAT device at home, a branch office, or even while traveling. Utilizing Ingate’s award-winning Remote SIP Connectivity software module, users can securely access the TonePlus VoIP service from anywhere as long as there’s an Internet connection available.
"This joint solution allows us to present a seamless solution to customers looking to offer secure VoIP services quickly and easily," said Stan Hanks, Chairman and CEO of NewCross Technologies. "We’re please to be working with Ingate Systems as we launch the TonePlus hosted VoIP service."
"Ingate’s SIParator works hand-in-hand with NewCross’ softswitch infrastructure to provide an ideal solution for carriers, ISPs, and other channel partners looking to deploy SIP-based VoIP that will traverse a wide variety of NATs/firewalls (home, branch office, etc.)," said Steven Johnson, President, Ingate Systems.
