ApplianX AP gateway

The advantage of the ApplianX AP Gateway lies in it being more than just a gateway. Use the ApplianX platform and take full advantage of its ease of use and flexibility, without having to add yet another device to your server room collection.


The ApplianX AP Gateway offers all the features and functionality of Aculab’s ‘plug & play’ ApplianX IP Gateway, which means it can be used in the same VoIP/TDM gateway scenarios and for SIP, DPNSS and QSIG interworking. Its comprehensive call routing engine controls traffic between TDM and IP end points, including termination on the internal VM environment providing the integral application platform (AP).

Outgoing calls can be ‘gatewayed’ to SIP or TDM as required. Furthermore, the AP can be configured for independent ingress/egress of e.g., SIP calls via Ethernet interfaces. That makes it suitable for any VoIP or IP-PBX application, in addition to making it a practical alternative for third party SBC software.

  • Syntec

  • The Aculab ApplianX AP Gateway is a great piece of kit allowing one to combine the VoIP/ISDN features of the gateway with a powerful VM instance, allowing bespoke facilities to be provided all in one box. Very useful in the often met environment where rack space is at a premium.
