of dedicated business VoIP (Voice over IP) Gateways, announced
today that it has been selected as part of the pulver 100. The
pulver 100 Awards are designed to recognize 100 private companies
in the global communications sector that have achieved exceptional
real-world deployments and enjoyed significant growth rates in
the past 12 months.

gateways are recognised as best-in-class SIP VoIP gateways for

recognition, voice response and VoIP over mobile products, enabling
connectivity between their products and traditional PSTN networks.

with the US Navy. In addition to these headline deployments, VegaStream
gateways are increasingly being deployed in mainstream enterprise
networks to reduce the cost of everyday business communications.
