Multiservice access gateways simplify delivery of carrier-based VoIP services

A pair of platforms are designed to simplify carrier IP voice and data service delivery for small- and medium-sized businesses. The Total Access 904 and 908, developed by Adtran, are multiservice access gateways that combine the voice functionality of the company's integrated access devices with advanced IP routing, security, and quality-of-service features. The low price points allow carriers to expedite deployments of feature-rich voice over IP (VoIP), SIP trunking, and hosted PBX applications.

For carriers implementing IP network architectures, the Total Access 904 and 908 provide the flexibility to support a number of applications including trunk-side services, like PRI, to accommodate proprietary IP PBXs and traditional PBXs or phone systems, hosted PBX applications utilizing IP phones, and line-side service offerings. These devices provide a T1 port for WAN connectivity, a 10/100Base-T Ethernet port for connection to an Ethernet switch, a PRI/T1 port for PBX connectivity, and either four or eight voice ports to support a variety of analog devices. The Total Access 904 and 908 offer a SIP Gateway, a robust IP router, stateful inspection firewall, advanced QoS features, IPSec VPN functionality, remote survivability, IP phone provisioning and management, and call admission control, all within a single multiservice platform.

The Total Access 900 Series currently consists of the Total Access 904, 908, 912, 916, and 924, offering 4, 8, 12, 16, or 24 voice ports, respectively. Prices range from $1025 to $1825. More information is available at www.adtran.com.
