Advanced features in conjunction with a fully featured business VoIP SIP phone

Paris (France), October 27, 2010 – Technicolor (Euronext Paris : TCH ; NYSE : TCH) today announced it has launched two new business gateway products, designed to bring high-end performance to the small office business market at a very attractive price point. These gateways are partnered by the TB30 professional IP phone which can be used as a standalone VoIP phone connected to the integrated MicroPABX in the business gateway, as the foundation of an office telephone network, or in conjunction with any popular VoIP PABX.

The Technicolor TG670 business gateway is a high performance terminal supporting modern broadband networks up to VDSL. As well as the gigabit Ethernet WAN port there is an integral four-port ethernet router and 802.11n wireless hub. The TG670 comes standard with advanced routing protocols (like BGP, OSPF, RIP) and operator management capabilities (like SNMP, TFTP, Syslog, TACACS+) which allow the operator to offer SLA agreements to the professional market. This one-box solution (also featuring full IPSec and VPN client and server functionality and including corporate firewall) meets the practical requirements of the enterprise user, including simple self-installation and management (with support for automatic updates by the network operator).

The TG672 gateway is identical, with the addition of multi-line DECT telephony and a gigabit LAN port for connection with a corporate network. Both gateways are designed to be forward compatible, including support for IPv6. They meet the latest version of the EU code of conduct on environmental performance, with low power consumption and intelligent switching of functionality.

The TB30 professional IP phone is also designed to deliver excellent performance at a cost-effective price, making feature-rich VoIP services more accessible for both large and small enterprises. Full duplex HD sound delivers outstanding acoustic performance, and SIP compatibility ensures that the TB30 is fully interoperable with modern PABXs, and has been proven with more than 60 switches from all the leading manufacturers.
