By Ashok Bindra, TMCnet Contributor
To extend reach in this expanding VoIP routers community, both newcomers and entrenched players were busy introducing new products and solutions this past week. While a major IP-based VoIP router and gateway solutions provider was branching out overseas, a satellite operator joined forces with a broadband satellite communication services provider to connect a police headquarter with border control stations via a satellite network.
Allworx (News - Alert) introduced a new line of Ethernet switches called PowerFlex. According to Allworx, it makes it easy for customers to upgrade to the next generation communications systems. Plus, “it simplifies installation and support of our systems,” said Chris Hasenauer, vice president and general manager of Allworx. The report shows that PowerFlex is future ready and backward compatible. Comprising three products for different Allworx voice server sizes, the switches come with capabilities such as power over Ethernet (PoE), 10/100/100 speed and the ability to auto-configure.
Likewise, ADTRAN (News - Alert) added the Total Access 5004 solution to its ultra-broadband portfolio. The company’s director of broadband product line management Darrell Brown said that Total Access 5004 delivers the industry’s most versatile premium services access solution in a small form-factor form with separate data and control planes, carrier-class redundancy, high scalability features and a complete non-blocking architecture. The report indicates that this compact solution serves as a multi-service access platform (MSAP) system that provides higher rate premium services over fiber or copper in a network. It aims to cut capital and operating costs.
In other news, global networking solutions provider NETGEAR unveiled its latest wireless router supporting 802.11ac technology. Featuring a 1 GHz dual core processor with a SuperSpeed USB 3.0 port and NETGEAR Beamforming+, the new Nighthawk AC1900 Smart Wi-Fi Router (R7000) boosts speed, reliability and range for unmatched connectivity in the home, NETGEAR reported.

Meanwhile, to develop presence in the Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) region, VoIP router and gateway solutions provider Patton Electronics opened new offices in Poland and Turkey. Patton (News - Alert) is hoping that local offices will enable the company to offer its on-the-ground sales, marketing and customer support in the Polish and Turkish languages that should help boost interest in their solutions in these developing markets.
Lastly, to connect Montenegro's police headquarters with the country's six border control stations through a satellite network, satellite operator Eutelsat (News - Alert) Communications announced partnership with Satellite Broadband Service Network Montenegro (SBS Net), a provider of broadband satellite communication services.
