The new Tenor DX Series of VoIP products addresses the needs of larger enterprises, and service providers’ smaller locations. This new product will extend Tenor’s unique capabilities and “transparent installation” to support larger PBXs that are utilizing multiple digital trunks. It also offers service providers an easy, cost effective way to capitalize on VoIP’s benefits by being able to implement IP Local Loop or calling card applications in their smaller Points of Presence (POPs).
Quintum is also announcing that shipping with the new Tenor DX Series is a new Tenor Configuration Manager with a simple, easy-to-use Graphical User Interface (GUI). The Configuration Manager runs on a PC and can remotely configure a Tenor anywhere IP access is available.
The newest Tenors, available with 2, 4, 6 or 8 T1/E1/PRI spans, support H.323 and SIP. They scale from eight to 120 simultaneous VoIP calls. This new VoIP product will be available in a variety of configurations that include both traditional gateway configurations and Tenor’s unique MultiPath architecture that provides easy integration with existing voice and data network infrastructures. The Tenor DX Series of MultiPath Switches all offer intelligent call routing between the PBX, PSTN and IP network to assure the optimization of cost and voice quality.
In addition to these features, Quintum’s award-winning technologies are also included: SelectNet™, Tenor’s patented QoS feature, which ensures carrier-grade calling at all times. VoIP calls that fall below a tuned QoS threshold are routed automatically to the PSTN in mid-call; PacketSaver™ Technology, designed to improve bandwidth utilization with RTP multiplexing; NATAccess™, which performs H.323 NAT translation, not typically integrated in gateways; IVR/AAA RADIUS functionality; and an available integrated H.323 gatekeeper.
“Quintum has been building a strong track record helping enterprises IP- enable their branch offices,” says Jon Arnold, VoIP Equipment Program Leader at analyst firm Frost & Sullivan. “Their MultiPath architecture provides both carrier-grade voice quality and service reliability—two must-haves for IP in the enterprise. Building on this, it’s clear that enterprises are ready to take the next step with Quintum in further extending IP’s reach and consolidating their LD. The Tenor DX series is a logical progression for Quintum, and should be well received by both enterprises and the PBX vendors.”
“We are very exited about the new Quintum’s new Tenor DX,” said Stephane Valici, Managing Director for Ipercom, a Value Added Reseller in Paris, France. “Flexibility and performance are now greatly improved, which gives us the ability to scale and fit our customers needs and demands. Since we deployed it in Europe a few weeks ago, orders have been coming in non-stop. There is no doubt in my mind that the Tenor DX will be extremely successful.”
“This new Tenor is one of our most versatile products,” stated Charles Rutledge, Vice President of Marketing for Quintum. “Quintum is offering configurations that meet the needs of an enterprise with a single T1, through larger enterprises that have multiple T1 trunks on the PBX to a service provider that need to support, LD trunking, IP local access, and calling cards in a small POP.”
The Tenor DX is currently available. The list price starts at $3440, and will be sold through Quintum’s channel of resellers.
