Sangoma Announces Lifetime Warranty on Telephony Cards
-- Sangoma Raises the Bar Again for VoIP Hardware Manufacturers --
TORONTO, CANADA – (March 18, 2008) – Sangoma Technologies Corporation (TSXV: STC), the premium provider of PC-based telephony hardware and software products for proprietary and open source networking and telephony solutions, today announced a lifetime warranty on their award-winning Advanced Flexible Telecommunications (AFT) product line.
Sangoma led the industry years ago with its five year warranty, at that time, the most aggressive in the industry. Now, Sangoma has raised the bar again by upgrading to a level never before seen in the telecommunications industry. The program includes a no questions asked 30-day money back guarantee, Sangoma's renowned free technical support, and free replacement in the unlikely event of a defect.
“We want our customers to understand that our products have a level of quality that others simply cannot duplicate,” said Doug Vilim, VP of Sales at Sangoma. “We are not going out on a limb in making this offer, because our cards just work. We believe that Sangoma is the only company to date that could make this offer without overwhelming their support group.”
Sangoma’s AFT product line provides the foundation for voice, data and video applications including legacy PBX, IVR, auto attendant, next generation gateways, media servers and application servers. Sangoma enables the PC to deliver superior auditory quality when communicating with public telephone networks. Sangoma technology works with proprietary technology and a variety of open source software, including: Asterisk®, FreeSwitch™, CallWeaver™, and Yate™.
“At Sangoma, we continue to guide the proprietary and open source telephony card manufacturers into providing a higher level of quality and service,” said David Mandelstam, Sangoma’s CEO. “We believe this move will send a message to potential customers, users and partners, that when it comes to reliability, we will not be outdone.”
The original registrant of any AFT product shipped after March 17, 2008, is eligible for Sangoma’s lifetime warranty. Sangoma will be exhibiting at Spring VON, March 17th – 20th, booth 1219.
