Converged Access Extends Leadership VoIP/Data QoS and Security to Small/Remote Office Wireless Users

Small/Remote Offices Realize Consistent QoS, Security for Both Wireless and Wired Users

BILLERICA, Mass., Nov. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Converged Access Inc., the leading provider of application performance management solutions for converged enterprise WANs, today announced that the company is bringing the benefits of its leadership in advanced traffic management and security to small/remote offices that are mobilizing their workforce. By integrating the newly available 802.11 b/g wireless LAN (WLAN) access into the company's "all-in- one" Converged Access Point (CAP) product, small enterprises and remote offices of medium-to-large enterprises can now cost-effectively offer business-class security and application performance guarantees as both wireless and wired users access business VoIP, data, and video applications.

"With the addition of wireless access to our CAP solution, small enterprises and larger enterprise remote offices can bring reliable, consistent security and Quality of Service to both wireless and wired users," said Per Suneby, President and CEO of Converged Access. "This extremely cost- effective business-class solution is also designed to reduce complexity as it integrates the network critical routing, VoIP gateway, security and QoS functions required to simplify management, deployment and on-going operation."

A Converged Voice and Data Solution For Wireless and Wired Users

When adding mobile voice and data users into an existing small/remote office network, it is critical that security and application performance remain consistent for both wired and wireless users. Growth in VoIP must not impact the performance of existing business-critical data application. Voice over Wi-fi (VoWiFi) calls must meet demanding toll-quality performance standards. In addition, wide area bandwidth must be optimized as both wireless and wired users access network applications.

To achieve this, the CAP offers an all-in-one package that combines a VoIP gateway, precise traffic management, firewall and VPN security, and an intuitive policy management solution. The built-in business class security and advanced traffic management features guarantee granular, per session or per call performance for VoIP and other critical applications over the wired and wireless access networks.

CAP connectivity to a range of 802.11 wireless devices such as PDAs, WiFi phones and wireless-equipped laptops ensures that the benefits of worker mobility and flexibility are backed by high-quality performance and business- class security. With its built-in routing support, the CAP can be easily deployed as a complete "office in a box" solution. In addition, the CAP can reduce TCO by as much as 66% while achieving toll quality VoIP, precise application performance guarantees and WAN optimization with bandwidth utilization that can exceed 95%.

Wireless CAP Pricing and Availability

New CAP models supporting the wireless LAN option are available immediately at a list price of $995. CAP configurations that do not require wireless access remain available for $850.
