In a press release on Edgewater Networks.com, the company announced the release of its EdgeMarc 4550 Series Network Services Gateways. Featuring 10/100Mbps Ethernet WAN ports and integrated 4 x 10/100 managed VLAN switches, the gateways are designed to reduce the costs associated with high bandwidth applications that need Ethernet WAN or T1/E1 termination. They can be used for data-only service offerings, but can also be configured to work with converged data, voice, and video environments.
“‘With the introduction of the EdgeMarc 4550 Series Network Services Gateways we are delivering flexible platforms with configurable T1/E1 WAN, T1 PRI and Ethernet interfaces that can be used for a wide variety of managed voice and data services,’ said David G. Norman, Chief Executive Officer at Edgewater Networks, Inc. ‘We have also increased the performance range of the systems to deliver greater value.'”
