Intoto Launches iGateway SecureICP SIP-based VoIP Solution

6/24/2004 - Intoto Inc., a leading provider of integrated security, wireless and voice software platforms to networking equipment manufacturers, announced the availability of iGateway SecureICP, a secure ICP software solution optimized for the small-to-medium enterprise (SME) market. The software platform allows equipment manufacturers to accelerate innovation and build highly secure, reliable and feature-rich ICPs. It is a fully integrated high-performance software suite for convergence products ranging from VoIP Terminal Adapters, Integrated Access Devices (IADs), IP PBXs to voice and media gateways. Intoto will be demonstrating the iGateway SecureICP software platform at SuperComm 2004 in Chicago, June 22-24, at the Intoto booth #13024.

The iGateway SecureICP software platform is flexible so it can be quickly integrated into any appliance architecture. To further speed time to market, the platform has also been pre-integrated with leading embedded operating systems as well as many popular processors and SoCs. iGateway SecureICP has been optimized for the Intel® IXP4XX network processor product line to deliver robust performance for SME applications. “Intoto’s iGateway SecureICP software solution running on Intel® IXP4XX network processor products helps equipment manufacturers to rapidly build next generation integrated appliances which combine scalable performance with rich voice, security and data functionality” said Doug Davis, vice president and general manager, Intel Network Processor Division.

The iGateway SecureICP software platform provides a fully interoperable SIP-based VoIP gateway that includes extensive services delivered via Intoto's patent-pending call processor. The SIP gateway acts as proxy and registrar, supporting access to VoIP services for soft clients connected locally on the LAN as well as remote clients connected to the internet. The solution provides several standards-based quality of service (QoS) and prioritization mechanisms as well as a variety of traffic shaping methods. “iGateway SecureICP enables our OEM customers to deliver on the convergence promise of next-generation networks,” said Doug Makishima, Intoto’s vice president of marketing. “The Intel® IXP4XX network processor architecture, with integrated security acceleration, voice DSP capability and unique QoS functionality, provides an optimal hardware platform for Intoto’s iGateway SecureICP software solution.”

Robust Security
The iGateway SecureICP solution integrates an ICSA certified stateful packet inspection Firewall including a unique Cyberdefense engine, NAT support, application content filtering and extensive application layer gateway (ALG) support including a SIP proxy/application layer gateway for soft clients behind NAT. The solution also provides support for wireless LAN security (WPA) including: RADIUS authentication, EAP-PEAP, EAP-TLS and PSK authentication suites, and TKIP and AES-CCMP encryption ciphers. An optional VPN module offers a feature-rich, standards-based VPN suite that is ICSA and VPNC certified and includes advanced support for IPsec, IKE, PKI and NAT traversal.

Wired or Wireless Access
The iGateway SecureICP software platform includes not only a complete VoIP gateway, ICSA certified firewall and secure wireless access point functionality, but also a complete suite of LAN and WAN protocols. The solution supports an extensive list of wired and wireless network access protocols including wireless LAN with Ethernet, 802.11a/b/g WLAN, bridging, SMTP client, DHCP server, DHCP relay, PPP, PPPoE and DHCP client.

Intel® IXP425 Optimized Support
iGateway SecureICP is optimized for the Intel® IXP425 network processor with a powerful software library that runs on the high speed Intel XScale® core. The Intel XScale core operates at very high speeds for processing algorithms such as G.711, G.722,G.723.1, G.279 and G.726 with very low power consumption. The optimized library supports VAD and CNG, adaptive/dynamic jitter control, multi-framing, echo cancellation, Caller Id in FSK/DTMF. The IXP425 includes network processing engines (NPEs) with advanced "livelock prevention" features that prevent high rate Ethernet input from affecting voice quality. The iGateway SecureICP software leverages the NPEs to provide high-performance LAN/WAN throughputs, real-time RTP streaming and advanced QoS.
