U4EA Selects D2 Technologies’ Embedded VoIP for SOHO Residential Gateway

U4EA’s Horizon HG1100 Home Office Gateway offers reliable VoIP connectivity through D2’s vPort software

Santa Barbara, CA – December 1, 2008 — D2 Technologies (www.d2tech.com), the market leader in embedded software platforms that power IP communications, today announced that U4EA Technologies has selected its vPort Gateway (GW) embedded VoIP software for a new residential gateway aimed at meeting the needs of SOHO (small office home office) users.  U4EA Technologies (www.u4eatech.com), a leading provider of integrated access technology for converged communications, debuted the plug-and-play Horizon HG1100 Home Office Gateway last month as a solution that enables service providers to deliver new revenue-generating services to home office customers.    This joint solution, optimized by D2’s vPort software and compatibility with the TR-069 CPE WAN Management Protocol, allows providers to bundle IP telephony and data services for the SOHO market within a single device, delivering the ease of use, Quality of Service and security demanded by today’s small business owners.

"D2 is the leader in embedded VoIP, and the inclusion of its vPort software within the HG1100 gives carriers the best converged communications connectivity and features at the most economical price point,” said Dr. Gerhard Heide, Technical Manager at U4EA.  “Our goal continues to be to deliver the products carriers need to increase revenues through new services to the SMB and SOHO markets -- and one way is to partner with companies such as D2 that meet our high standards for quality and affordability.”

The Horizon Home Office Gateway enables service providers to deliver a range of combined IP telephony and data services to residential customers.  Extreme ease-of-use reduces customer support costs, while automatic QoS guarantees reliable service performance and prevents churn.  Remote management simplifies delivery of new revenue generating services.

”The vPort architecture is flexible enough so that companies such as U4EA Technologies can quickly meet the strong demand for products delivering advanced broadband services,” said Doug Makishima, Vice President of Marketing and Sales at D2 Technologies.  “By offering a highly-scalable and cost-effective VoIP solution, D2 ensures that next-generation CPE products like the HG1100 leverage converged communications effectively, reliably and within a cost structure that enables carriers to easily recoup costs through new service generation.”
