Multi-Tech Provides Affordable Coordination with New VOIP Gatekeepers

11/19/2003 - Multi-Tech Systems, Inc., a leading data communications and telecommunications company based in suburban Minneapolis announces a new line MultiVOIP Voice over IP gatekeepers designed for centralized call control and management of H.323 voice traffic over IP networks. The new MultiVOIP (Model number MVPGK100) IU high rack mountable gatekeepers allow for the configuring, monitoring and managing the activity of registered end-points within a Voice over IP network. In addition the gatekeepers can be used to set policies and control network resources such as bandwidth usage for more efficient network operation. The MultiVOIP MVPGK100 will start shipping in the first quarter of 2004.

“There are many reasons your VoIP network might need to incorporate a gatekeeper, but you certainly do not want to add complexity and significantly more cost during the process,” states Chip Harleman, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Multi-Tech Systems, Inc. “The network intelligence added with a gatekeeper will mean better resource management, easier scalability, more security, and peace-of-mind. Our challenge was to provide all of these benefits in a package that was easy-to-use and inexpensive. We also wanted to make our product fit the needs of the smaller networks our users typically employ. What we have come up with is a stand-alone fully functional gatekeeper that is completely contained in a 1U high cabinet. With the Multi-Tech MultiVOIP gatekeeper you add intelligence to your VoIP network without the hassle and expense of larger PC-based units and without the costs and training that goes along with it.”

The MultiVOIP Model MVPGK100 is a 1U high rack mountable Voice over IP (VoIP) gatekeeper that provides reliable call control for registered H.323 end points in an IP network resulting in the control of how H.323 voice traffic is managed over iP networks. It is a complementary product to Multi-Tech’s line of VoIP gateways, and provides standards-based interoperability and bandwidth management for superior QoS operation. The MVPGK100 features:
