Sangoma Announces Worldwide Launch of Vega Gateways
TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Dec. 1, 2011) - Sangoma Technologies Corporation (TSX VENTURE:STC), a leading provider of hardware and software components that enable or enhance IP Communications Systems for both voice and data, today announced the launch of the Vega suite of gateway products from Sangoma.

The Vega suite of VoIP gateways offers an extensive range of interconnectivity between PSTN and IP networks, in a high performance custom designed appliance, at industry leading price points. The Vega suite from Sangoma consists of three product lines: the Vega 50 line for low density analog or BRI connectivity, the Vega 400 line for high density digital interfaces with multiple T1s or E1s, and the Vega 5000 line for high density analog connectivity up to 50 FXS ports.

"This launch marks the end of three months of intense work by our engineering, product management, support, operations, and sales organizations in Canada, the US, UK and India to bring this exciting new suite of products to general availability," said Bill Wignall, president and CEO of Sangoma. "This milestone also signals the completion of integration of the former VegaStream people and operations into the Sangoma family and we are very pleased with how smoothly this acquisition has been handled by teams on both sides of the ocean."

Sangoma provides an industry leading portfolio of TDM to IP telephony interface boards for use inside servers. While the company intends to continue dominating that market, gateway appliances (which provide much of the same functionality as Sangoma board products, but reside outside the server) are becoming increasingly popular. Sangoma can now offer its customers both options.

Wignall continued, "General availability of the Vega portfolio is just one more step in Sangoma's evolution as a company. We are reinventing ourselves to become a substantial player in more segments of the IP communications market. That strategy includes significantly broadening our product portfolio to deliver more value to our customers and partners and meet more of their product needs. Sangoma is now committed to delivering 5 to 10 new products per year, well up from the historical average of one new release annually. We launched our multiplexer line last quarter with more multiplexers to follow shortly. We've already announced our Microsoft Lync certified gateway this quarter. We are now releasing the Vega suite of gateways and we have two additional major product releases scheduled by the middle of next quarter. At Sangoma, we're not just a board company anymore!"

"We know via clear feedback from customers and distributors that they are extremely excited about the launch of our suite of Vega gateway appliances," said Doug Vilim, vice president of sales at Sangoma. "This is a market they have wanted to see Sangoma participate in for some time. We are experiencing good demand from our channel and from our OEM customers. I think other gateway suppliers had better watch out!"

Sangoma has invested significant time and effort in operations and manufacturing leading up to this launch and the company is now accepting orders for its Vega products and shipping in volume around the globe.
