If you haven’t been watching Adtran lately you may have missed how seriously they are taking the VoIP market. Certainly the company is a well-known name in the networking equipment market having been making data centers products for so many years.
The company has a new series of multi-service routers that are designed for use in small businesses. They allow for things like PoE — perfect for VoIP phones.
Even though the products in this line are being targeted at SMBs I found it encouraging that they support 500 VPN tunnels.
Every networking vendor is taking VoIP seriously — I just get the feeling Adtran is trying to be the better IP communications networking company.
