RN Series Secures and Scales Asterisk VoIP deployments

Morganville, NJ — January 24, 2006 — Ranch Networks today introduced the RN series of appliances which are the first to integrate security and bandwidth control for VoIP applications. The company’s IP telephony network appliances secure, manage and scale VoIP traffic beyond existing firewall technologies. Ranch Networks’ appliances separate voice, video, and data traffic into multiple secure zones without having to reconfigure IP addresses. Several patent-pending technologies, allow service providers to deliver VoIP services to enterprises without affecting existing data networks.

Ranch Networks’ technology is designed to work with leading IP PBXs and supports all sizes of enterprise and carrier deployments. Instead of requiring labor intensive access lists or protocol specific application layer gateways, Ranch Networks’ IP PBX controlled appliances provide dynamic, protocol independent, per-call authenticated network access. This unique approach both simplifies and increases network security, while allowing encrypted signaling streams.

Starting with Asterisk, the open source PBX, Ranch Networks’ offers the RN300, RN20, RN40 and RN41 to provide dynamic, protocol independent, per-call authenticated network access. These products will supply unprecedented VoIP security, bandwidth management, VPN, accounting and switching capabilities to small to mid-size enterprises, service providers and carriers.

“Asterisk was a logical starting point for us as it allows us to leverage a vast growing user base, a focused and enterprising reseller channel and avoid the red tape of the proprietary PBX vendors,” said Ram Ayyakad, founder and CEO of Ranch Networks. “We believe now that this puts Asterisk in line with the leading proprietary IP PBX vendors.”

The RN300, RN20, RN40, and RN41 are available through leading Asterisk resellers worldwide ranging in price from $750 to $20K. For a list of resellers or additional information, please visit
