Ranch Networks Announces Availability of its Asterisk Security Code in Digium’s New Version of the Asterisk Business Edition

Morganville, NJ — June 5, 2006 — Ranch Networks, provider of VoIP appliances built to advance open source telephony deployments, today announced the integration of its Asterisk security code into the new B.1 version of the Asterisk Business Edition. The Digium Asterisk Business Edition is the professional-grade version of Asterisk, the industry’s first open source PBX. The Ranch Networks security code is the first solution of its kind to be supported by the popular open source IP telephony platform.

Combining Asterisk Business Edition with Ranch Networks new RN series appliances provides unprecedented security and scalability to the open source telephony industry. Ranch Networks solves security concerns associated with VoIP implementations through both its MIDCOM integration with the Asterisk platform, and several of its Patent-Pending technologies. The MIDCOM integration provides for dynamic per-call firewall control, bandwidth management, NAT traversal, and RTP traffic bridging — all supporting encrypted signaling streams, while the Patent-Pending technologies separate voice, video, and data traffic into multiple, secure zones without having to reconfigure IP addresses.

“The Ranch Networks security code integrated into the new version of Asterisk Business Edition will provide enterprise users with a secure and scalable option for open source software,” said Alex Pavlovsky, president of Ranch Networks. “Digium has paved the way for mainstream businesses to take advantage of open source telephony with the new version of Asterisk Business Edition.”

“This new version of the Asterisk Business Edition provides enterprise users with a flexible, cost effective, and fully-supported telephony platform,” said Jim Webster, director of software technologies at Digium. “By adding Ranch Network’s security appliance business professionals can also now enjoy security and scalability on-par with proprietary VoIP systems.”

To supplement Asterisk Business Edition, Ranch Networks offers the RN300, RN20, RN40 and RN41 to provide dynamic, protocol independent, per-call authenticated network access. These products supply unprecedented VoIP security, bandwidth management, VPN, accounting and switching capabilities to small to mid-size enterprises, service providers and carriers.

The RN300, RN20, RN40, and RN41 are available through leading Digium resellers worldwide ranging in price from $600 to $17,300. For a list of resellers or additional information, please visit
