Siemens and 3Com have announced the first products to emerge from their partnership, forged last year in anticipation of a boom in combined voice and data networks.
The companies plan to introduce stackable products designed to bring integrated voice and data networks to small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).
3Com will combine its Total Control remote access hardware and Superstack II Lan switch with Siemens' telecomms switch technology, to create a multi-service gateway for carriers and Internet service providers.
The products will support the IEEE 802.1p standard for traffic priority, as well as the International Telecommunications Union's H.320 and H.323 specifications for multimedia.
A real time communication gateway, enabling voice and video communication between devices connected to IP and telephone networks, will be introduced in the third quarter of this year.
Under the partnership, Siemens will also market Lan products under its own name based on 3Com?s Superstack II and Corebuilder technology. These products will be officially displayed at the Cebit trade show in Hanover, Germany this month.
