Gateways news, views and industry insights from Aculab

  • When will telecom gateways be extinct?

    Within Aculab, we’re often discussing the general acceptance of VoIP and whether we’re any closer to the time when traditional TDM voice will disappear and ALL enterprise voice communications needs will be handled via IP connections rather than TDM E1 and T1 circuits.

  • Gateways with a twist

    Gateways enable communication where otherwise, it would be impossible.

  • When you want more from a gateway

    Gateways are great. That’s because they enable communications where otherwise, it would be impossible. Impossible that is other than by using something else.

    That post was prompted by lots of pertinent news activity in Europe over the last 12 months or so. The newswires reported several telecom operators, including Deutsche Telekom, announcing their intention to terminate ISDN access.
