AudioCodes Announces All-In-One Multimedia Home Gateway

LOD, Israel, Oct. 4, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- AudioCodes (Nasdaq:AUDC), a leading provider of Voice over IP (VoIP) technologies and Voice Network products, today announced the introduction of the MediaPack™ 252 Multimedia Home Gateway. A member of the MediaPack gateway series, the MediaPack 252 integrates diverse home multimedia services, including ADSL2+ Secured Router, high-speed 802.11n WiFi access point and CAT-iq™ compliant DECT, supporting High Definition VoIP (HDVoIP).

"Service integration for the broadband home user is becoming increasingly important for Service Providers," stated Jeremy Duke, Principal Analyst at Synergy Research. "The AudioCodes MediaPack 252 supports this trend by integrating into one cost-effective device multiple chargeable services that used to be provisioned separately. By integrating DECT home PBX, routing, access, and security into one device, the growing residential broadband market can enjoy better cost structures of CAPEX and OPEX. The residential broadband market is expected to grow and reach the level of $3.033B in 2011."

The MediaPack 252 integrates an internal ADSL2+ modem and secured wireless router, as well as support for 100Mbit Ethernet WAN port. The unit has an integrated CAT-iq™ 2.0 compliant DECT base station, which together with AudioCodes' MP252 complementary handsets, provides superior HDVoIP quality calls. Additionally, an internal Bluetooth radio allows synchronization to mobile phones, which enable receiving and making calls through the DECT handsets. The unit also supports 3 USB ports, allowing the functionality of Print Server and File Server and an optional USB-based 3G cellular modem. Battery backup for use in case of power failure is also available.

"Introducing the MediaPack 252 Multimedia Home Gateway, we sought to create innovative features for home users," said Shaul Weissman, AudioCodes Vice President, Residential Business Unit. "We also wanted to enable Service Providers to generate more revenue from new services. HDVoIP, File and Print Server and Mobile connectivity at home are a few examples of such services which will increase customer loyalty."
