New Partners in France and Belgium
Ingate and the system integrator Webcentric, based in Paris, have partnered to provide seamless Unified Communications (UC) solutions. Webcentric's interest is primarily to use the Ingate's Software SIParator® SBC to resolve connectivity, NAT/firewall traversal, quality and interoperability issues with enterprise UC and telephony solutions.
Brussels-based ITP provides complete telecommunication solutions that cover planning, design and implementation and the management and support of converged voice and data networks. Ingate is pleased to partner with ITP to add our expertise to their leading-edge technology solutions.
Release 6.2.1 of the Ingate SIParator® / Firewall® SBC
Release 6.2.1 of the Ingate SIParator® is available for the Ingate line of SBC appliances and for the software SIParator for virtual machines. The new version adds functions and features, has security and other enhancements and includes earlier customer-requested patches. See release notes for details.
Audio Media G.729 and G.722 Transcoding Added Since patent rights have elapsed, audio codec transcoding has been added free of charge to all Ingate SIParators with the new 6.2.1 software. If enabled, the maximum transcoding sessions for PCMA/PCMU to and from G729/G722 have been measured to:
SIParator S21 (Serial number starting with IG-095): 60
SIParator S95 (Serial number starting with IG-954): 700
SIParator S98 (Serial number starting with IG-981): 1800
Adding CPUs with more cores and higher frequency allows for more transcoded concurrent calls.
Call Control REST API in the Dial Plan This Call Control API allows integration with external web services during call processing. The Ingate SIParator can now fetch information via REST API calls (http or https GET commands), while processing the dial plan and the returned information is used to modify the SIP requests being processed.
This allows for enhanced routing capabilities to applications such as:
Routing based on number portability
No Call compliance
Call capacity per DNIS for inbound campaigns in call centers
An additional benefit of this REST Call Control API, which takes the information in text, JSON and XML formats, is that dynamic information that may affect or require changes in the configuration can easily be handed over to queries to an external application database, reducing risks of affecting operations.
HTTP REST API for Configuring and Managing the SIParator Firewall and SBC
This added configuration REST API - which also includes upgrades, licenses and patches - allows service providers to configure, provision and perform other management tasks from external applications via HTTP requests.
The API can be accessed through Ansible and will most likely be included in Ansible version 2.8. Ingate has written a suite of Ansible modules for users to configure and maintain the Ingate SBC via Ansible Playbooks. Ingate also provides the cli2python utility, which can be used to generate an Ansible Playbook from an Ingate CLI file.
This configuration REST API can also be accessed through cURL and Ingate Python SDK.
