Sangoma Recognized for Technology Innovation and Sustainable Growth Throughout 2012

Company Receives Multiple Product Excellence Awards and a Product of the Year Award from INTERNET TELEPHONY Magazine; Sangoma's Business Growth Merits Inclusion in the 2012 Branham300 Ranking

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwire) -- 01/09/13 -- Sangoma Technologies Corporation (TSX VENTURE:STC), a leading provider of hardware and software components that enable or enhance IP Communications Systems for both voice and data, announced it has received multiple awards from Technology Marketing Corporation (TMC), a global integrated media company and publisher of INTERNET TELEPHONY magazine. Sangoma's NetBorder Lync Express was awarded the INTERNET TELEPHONY Product of the Year Award, and the company received INTERNET TELEPHONY Excellence Awards for its Vega Gateway Series, the Vega 400 Session Border Controller (SBC), and the A116 16-Span Digital Telephony Interface Board. In addition, Sangoma has been selected by The Branham Group for inclusion in the 2012 Branham300, which recognizes Canadian technology leaders.

"Sangoma has a long-standing reputation for delivering well-engineered and high-quality solutions to the enterprise, service provider, and OEM markets, and we are honored to receive recognition from both TMC and The Branham Group for our ability to anticipate and address customer needs," said Bill Wignall, president and chief executive officer of Sangoma. "Sangoma is fortunate to have an extremely talented and dedicated group of engineering, marketing and operations professionals, along with an outstanding network of partners and resellers who are singly focused on serving the needs of their customers. These awards are a testament to the outstanding results they've been able to achieve in the past year, which is even more impressive when global economic factors are taken into consideration."

Sangoma's NetBorder Lync Express is a recent example of how Sangoma was able to quickly deliver a breakthrough product to address tangible customer needs. Designed to facilitate deployment of the Microsoft Lync Unified Communications solution, the NetBorder Lync Express is the only all-in-one Microsoft Lync-certified appliance available in the market. This versatile 1U appliance serves businesses with up to 240 users, and includes all Lync software and server components, as well as an integrated VoIP gateway. This simple-to-install appliance takes the complexity out of deploying Lync for small and medium businesses and enterprise customers.

Sangoma's award-winning Vega Gateway Series offers a broad range of IP-to-TDM stand-alone gateway devices designed to bridge disparate technologies easily and cost-effectively. Vega gateways provide the perfect answer for IP-based voice services and for connecting to service provider broadband networks or the Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN).

The Vega 400 SBC allows service providers and enterprises to deploy SIP trunking and other SIP services, safe in the knowledge that there will be no interoperability issues. Delivered in a 1U chassis, the Vega 400 SBC secures up to 60 simultaneous SIP sessions.

"Sangoma's field-proven expertise in interconnecting disparate systems that use different technologies, protocols, signaling, and encoding is imbued in all of our products ranging from the Vega Gateways to our award-winning telephony interface boards," said Doug Vilim, Sangoma's vice president of worldwide sales. "The communications landscape, from the smallest office to the largest service provider network, is comprised of many disparate elements that must be cost-effectively bridged. And even in a homogenous IP network, providing secure IP-to-IP connectivity - while seamlessly smoothing out the bumps caused by different codecs, signaling, and SIP implementations - are crucial to the efficient operation of the network."

The A116 16-Span Telephony Interface Board provides twice the span-density of any other board in the market. This powerful solution enables unmatched capacity in a single server, supporting up to 480 simultaneous voice calls from a single server expansion slot. The board supports T1, E1, and J1 standards, and like other Sangoma boards, features a lifetime warranty.

"Competitors have just recently achieved stability with 8-span boards - something Sangoma accomplished three years ago," noted Vilim. "The A116 board provides solution developers with a dramatic advantage in power, space, and capacity that is winning deals all over the world."

"Sangoma has consistently provided reliable solutions for an increasingly complex communications landscape. We are pleased to recognize a number of the company's most recent products with the 2012 INTERNET TELEPHONY Excellence Award for Sangoma's dedication and excellence in advancing IP communications," stated Rich Tehrani, chief executive officer of TMC. "We are also proud to recognize the NetBorder Lync Express with the 2012 INTERNET TELEPHONY Product of the Year Award for simply and elegantly addressing a growing need in the unified communications marketplace. It is the perfect example of a forward-thinking, problem solving product that can make a demonstrable impact in the market by accelerating the mass adoption of unified communications solutions."

Sangoma's industry-leading solution portfolio enables the interworking of a wide variety of disparate TDM and IP networks, clouds, protocols, services, devices, and applications. Its portfolio includes award-winning voice and data boards, transcoding and gateway software, standalone gateway appliances for SS7 and TDM-to-SIP, wireless boards, multiplexers, Microsoft Lync gateways, and session border controllers. These products are designed for simple integration with open source and closed source IP PBX applications, contact centers, unified communications systems and service provider networks.
