Media5 expands the Mediatrix portfolio with the introduction of the ISDN BRI interface

The global supplier of VoIP solutions, Media5, brings to the Telecom market new models of its renown Mediatrix VoIP CPE with the addition of ISDN BRI telephony ports.

Media5 Corporation announces the expansion of its portfolio of Session Border Controllers and Media Gateways with the introduction of new product models. Starting January 2019, the Sentinel line of SBCs and the Mediatrix C7 and G7 gateways Series will be available with digital ISDN BRI S0/T0 telephony ports, as well as with their current E1/T1 PRI and analogue FXS/FXO interfaces.

Counting on a flexible architecture, the new Mediatrix configurations were created to address the most specific needs in SIP Trunking, ISDN/PSTN migration, and Hosted IP-PBX services. The ISDN BRI is able to provide SIP termination for Cloud Communications and to easily connect Hosted Services with TDM PBXes and legacy telephony equipment.

“Integrating digital BRI into our portfolio of best sellers shows our commitment to support the service providers and the enterprises for the migration of traditional telephony systems to IP networks. From end to end, operators, ITSP, distributors, VARs, and small offices will benefit from the increased flexibility of Mediatrix CPE to address complex deployment scenarios with the most reliable and proven interoperable gateways available on the market”, states Mr. Eric Beaudoin, product line manager at Media5.

High Performance Gateways

Mediatrix platforms are officially certified in more than 50 countries, compatible with all SIP protocol variants, and highly interoperable with the major phones, PBX brands, and SIP softswitches worldwide. They ensure carrier-grade voice quality, robust security, easy configuration, and remote management for mass deployments.

TDM Migration

Present in Europe for over two decades, Media5 understands the diversity and complexity of the European telecommunications infrastructure, in which the ISDN BRI is vastly used to deploy telephony services to small businesses. In countries as Germany, Italy, France, and Greece, the major operators have already started the migration from TDM to IP-based networks each with its own migration strategy and phase-out timing. It is therefore important for operators to be able to count on infrastructure products adapted to their needs.

The Mediatrix BRI gateways provide efficient solutions, designed for different applications even in very particular scenarios and contexts. “The configurations of the Mediatrix platforms are highly customisable. Our gateways are known for solving complex implementation challenges and allowing the phase-out of hard-to-maintain TDM switches as the migration advances without impacting the current customer base”, concludes Mr. Beaudoin.

Media5 statement on Meltdown and Spectre vulnerabilities

Last week, a group of researchers published details about a major security flaw, known as Meltdown and Spectre, which affects some Intel and AMD processors, or some processors using ARM cores. Attacks that exploit this bug could allow malicious software to spy deeply into other processes and data on the target computer or smartphone.

Aware of the relevance of the matter, Media5 Corporation has evaluated Meltdown and Spectre vulnerabilities and has determined that Mediatrix gateways, ATAs, and Sentinel are NOT vulnerable.

Impact to Mediatrix customers

Mediatrix platforms do not allow execution of a third party software, therefore they do not run arbitrary code and have no exploitable shell, being therefore non-vulnerable to Meltdown and Spectre.

The Sentinel 400 allows a Virtual Machine (VM) to be installed through a licence mechanism.  Customers making use of a VM licence must make sure the operating system they install on the virtual machine is safe and that the VM itself is protected from any form of malicious attacks.

Impacts for M5T and Media5-fone customers

Other Media5 products that do not allow running non-embedded third party code are also not at risk, i.e.:

  • M5T Sip Client Engine Software Development Kits
  • Media5-fone SoftClients

While the list of third-party embedded libraries required by the M5T Sip Client Engine SDKs is provided to customers along with the software archive, the list of embedded third-party libraries for the Media5-fone SoftClients can be accessed here.

As a general rule, to minimize the potential impact of these vulnerabilities, Media5 recommends Media5-fone customers to take the following action:

  • Install all Windows, Linux, Android, iOS, and Mac OS patches available with the latest updates from appropriate vendors.
