New addition to Aculab’s enterprise gateway portfolio

ApplianX AP Gateway from Aculab

7th December 2016, Milton Keynes, UK – Aculab, a leading provider of deployment proven telephony APIs and gateways for the global communications market, announces the addition of the ApplianX AP Gateway to its ApplianX range of enterprise gateways.

The ApplianX AP Gateway offers all of the functions of Aculab’s renowned ApplianX IP Gateway, combined with a user application platform (AP).

That AP enables bespoke, call handling software applications to run in the box on a powerful VM instance, alongside the gateway, instead of on additional, external hardware. The unique architecture of the ApplianX AP Gateway provides users with many benefits, such as needing less rack space, being able to deploy custom OEM solutions in a single box, and offering an all-in-one communications appliance.

Many businesses continue to need gateways, to interwork between legacy PSTN networks or PBX installations and a variety of IP-based communications solutions. The thing that makes the ApplianX AP Gateway such a valuable and cost-effective option is that many of those IP-based solutions can be run in the same box, either interacting with or independent of the gateway. That was a major attraction for Syntec, an early adopter of Aculab’s new gateway platform as evidenced by comments from its operations director, James Campbell.

“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. It’s very useful in the often met environment where rack space is at a premium.” James Campbell, Operations Director, Syntec.

“Adding a user accessible VM environment to our enterprise gateway platform seemed like the right thing to do. In fact, it was user discussions that helped germinate the idea in the first place. Those already benefitting from the unique features of Aculab’s ApplianX gateway range, such as Supplementary Services interworking, branch office survivability, and key-stroke suppression for PCI-DSS compliance, now have a powerful VM on which to run their own or third party IP-PBX and SBC applications.” David Samuel, CEO, Aculab.

  • 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.
