Tangent™ Handout Cyclix-Tangent-Brochure

Tangent™, a Cyclix engineered VoIP gateway, and session-border-controller solution, allows the client to easily move into VoIP/SIP technology while still preserving their current TDM/analog telephone infrastructure.

The Tangent™ managed gateway offers managed VoIP gateway telecommunication functionality for small, medium, and large size enterprise users.

What sets Tangent™ apart from other offerings? The support of the on-site gateway product is handled by Cyclix, the service provider. The integrated gateway/session-border-controller device is configured, cared for, and monitored by Cyclix.

The cost of the system no and service is bundled into the monthly service offering.

Tangent™ allows Cyclix to offer the client the best of both worlds

  • Preservation of the clients’ current legacy telecom investment.
  • Engineered Quality of service at the CPE last mile.
  • Engineered VoIP security at the CPE last mile.
  • Engineered Corporate Firewall Traversal at the CPE last mile.
  • Fully supported services, as seen in a hosted services environment.
  • Plug & Play functionality, and one source for support of both CPE site equipment and telecommunication services.

Tangent™: Retrofitting the Legacy Facility for SIP

The client’s current legacy TDM PBX or key system is inter-worked with a Cyclix engineered media gateway and border-controller solution. All standard VoIP SIP trunking services are made available to the client, with no changes to the client’s current CPE infrastructure required.

An advantage offered with Tangent™ is the client can now share the same Internet IP pipe that they use for enterprise data with VoIP. Tangent’s™ integrated VectorX™ (Vx™) session-bordercontroller makes possible the ability to mediate bandwidth between VoIP and non- VoIP data streams, resulting in QoS for VoIP services, even over lower bandwidth facilities such as DSL.

VectorX™, Tangent’s™ patent-pending Vx™ session-boarder-controller, also allows the client to sidestep all the pitfalls involved in trying to get VoIP to traverse through and work with the corporate firewall, resolving this issue.

The following is a summary of the benefits of moving a legacy CPE telecommunication system to Cyclix VoIP service with Tangent™:


Cost Savings: Cyclix’s VoIP service will save the client on all portions of their telecommunications bill. Savings can average as high as 30-40%.
