VegaStream Selects Express Logic's ThreadX RTOS for VoIP Gateways

Express Logic, Inc., the worldwide leader in royalty-free real-time operating systems (RTOS), announces that VegaStream Group, Ltd., of Bracknell, Berkshire, UK, has selected Express Logic’s ThreadX RTOS for use in its new family of VoIP Gateways. VegaStream’s VoIP gateways enable service providers and business customers to profit from lower telephony costs and improved productivity between their organizations’ headquarters and remote offices.

The award-winning Vega gateways are based on international communications standards, including SIP and H.323, and deliver an open and non-proprietary VoIP solution that can be seamlessly integrated alongside existing communications investments. The VegaStream VoIP Gateway portfolio reduces business phone bills and improves business efficiency via analog, ISDN Basic Rate, and ISDN Primary Rate interfaces for North American and European standards. With support for analog and digital PBX trunks and analog and ISDN handsets, VegaStream’s VoIP Gateways provide an ideal complement for IP-based voice services and for connecting to service provider broadband access over DSL and cable networks.

“We selected ThreadX based on its broad market success, its simple, yet powerful technology, and its flexible licensing arrangements,” noted Tim Burne, CEO, VegaStream. “Our VoIP products demand hard real-time performance, and our customers demand rapid time to market. We found that ThreadX can offer us both, and at an attractive price that enables us to use it throughout our gateway family.”

“VegaStream’s selection of ThreadX is the latest example of the ability of ThreadX to handle demanding applications in networking and communications,” commented William E. Lamie, president of Express Logic. “ThreadX has met our customers’ needs in all sorts of industries from networking to consumer to industrial and medical, even space exploration. ThreadX is flexible, and we’re pleased to provide VegaStream with the ability to support its latest family of VoIP products.”
