Gateways with a twist

Gateways enable communication where otherwise, it would be impossible.

Gateways are analogous to interpreters. They don’t translate the conversation during your calls, but they do interpret, and in doing so interwork, the protocols that set up and manage your conversations.

In that sense, gateways render the impossible possible. But that’s not the whole story…

Free lodgings

Some gateways can do more than the impossible.

In a typical scenario, the gateway will be sitting in a rack alongside your solution. That means two, separate portions of rack space.

If it was possible to lodge your software-based solution in the same box as the gateway, you’d be able to free up a whole portion of rack space.

To make that happen, the gateway has to be an open platform appliance with an integral virtual machine (VM) on which to install and run your application.

The ApplianX AP Gateway from Aculab is such a space saving platform, offering free lodgings for your applications – and many more advantages.

Getting more from your gateway

If you’re offering gateways as part of your narrative for an IP migration strategy, you – and your clients – will be interested in getting more value from those gateways.

Equally, if you need gateways to interwork clients’ legacy systems to your new, IP-based solutions, you must be interested in doing more with those gateways.

Now you can have some more.

Beyond saving rack space, the ApplianX AP Gateway gives you lots more advantages.

  • Improved Aculab Cloud documentation and a new console

    We’ve been busy in the background recently at Aculab with a major website refresh. Aculab has evolved over decades (40 years this year!) from a vendor supplying hardware to a much more software-centric product company. We still sell telecom gateways extensively, but nowadays the bulk of our enabling technology business is software, and in particular our communications platform-as-a-service (CPaaS) product, Aculab Cloud.

  • Interoperability is predictable

    Way back in 2007, while presenting a seminar in Prague, someone asked me for my prediction on when SS7 would no longer be in use. My answer was suitably vague, but something on the lines of, “at least 10 to 15 years.” Ten years on, I wasn’t wrong. Still, I may not be right. SS7 is showing its age, but it’s not about to draw its pension just yet.

  • Fax is not yet dead

    You might think that fax would be as extinct as the Martinique Parrot. That parrot vanished in the 17th Century. Fax was invented two hundred years later, by the Scottish clockmaker, Alexander Bain. It took a while though, until the late 20th Century, for facsimile machines to become popular. However, if the lack of commentary by the majority of today’s technology observers is anything to go by, you’d be forgiven for thinking it too had died out. The truth is that it remains extant, and it shows little sign of going the way of the Martinique.

  • “Daoruni gimi, Ionos Sonaro.” *

    Languages, eh; who would have thought that in the 21st Century there would still be so much diversity?

    In Westeros, in the world of George R. R. Martin’s epic Game of Thrones, there are spoken only two major languages – the Old Tongue and the Common Tongue. But what about computer languages?
