EATONTOWN, N.J. -- Quintum® Technologies, Inc., a leading manufacturer of voice over IP solutions announced that they have introduced a Tenor Call Relay SP Session Border Controller that supports the needs of next generation service providers.

The new Tenor Call Relay SP complements the existing session border controller which debuted in October, 2001. The Call Relay SP was designed to address the scalability that service providers require for their networks. The original Call Relay supports 16 simultaneous VoIP calls, software upgradeable to 32; the new Call Relay SP supports 120 simultaneous VoIP calls, software upgradeable to 672.

Both Tenor Call Relay and Call Relay SP allow VoIP endpoints such as gateways, IP phones, and IP soft phones which are behind a Network Address Translation (NAT) firewall, to communicate with VoIP endpoints on external IP networks. This allows both enterprises and service providers to expand their VoIP networks to home offices branch offices, customers, partners and across the public internet.

Tenor Call Relay SP, like the original Call Relay, supports Quintum’s unique PacketSaver technology that has the ability to reduce the amount of bandwidth required by 57% of the incoming VoIP traffic stream. The Call Relay SP also can be remotely managed and offers a single point for call management, administration and security at the edge of the network.

The Tenor Call Relay SP, like the other Tenor Switch products, also works with the Quintum Call Routing Server, allowing service providers to handle the sophisticated routing of traffic required when interconnecting with multiple VoIP providers.

“The Tenor Call Relay has done just what we needed it to do”, said Barry McConachie, CEO of IPhone4Less. “The Call Relay has allowed us to expand our business significantly by accepting a combination of G.723 and G.729 VoIP traffic for transport across our private IP network. It was easy to install and has been extremely reliable.”.

“As VoIP has grown significantly, the need to efficiently exchange VoIP traffic between IP networks has grown in importance,” stated Chuck Rutledge, VP of Marketing at Quintum Technologies. “The Call Relay SP now addresses that need on a larger scale for service providers.”

Terry Caterisano, CTO of IPhone4Less, states, “We deployed Quintum’s Call Relay SP and the smaller Tenor Switches in our IP network. It runs flawlessly and reliably supports our H.323 traffic and assures the voice quality our customers demand.”
