TOSIBOX® technology now inside jNode gateway device for SIPazon IP communication
TOSIBOX® provided secure connectivity between audio/video communication endpoints and remote call centers and other cloud services for telecom and communication provider JNT.
JNT were familiar with TOSIBOX® technology from before, and they became one of the first companies to pilot TOSIBOX® Lock for Container: a software for connecting devices to their TOSIBOX® ecosystem. The Lock for Container perfectly suited the needs of the company, who are piloting it in an ambitious project comprising 18 buildings in Egypt’s new administrative capital that is being built from scratch. Another similar project is in Dubai, where six sites need to be interconnected.
A gap between edge and cloud in communication layers
The challenge was how to benefit from the cloud without comprising security, connectivity and edge independency.
As a company, JNT aims to provide quality communication solutions with the best of products and technologies in the market for the era of Internet of Things and artificial intelligence. One of their specialties is communication over SIP (Session Initiation Protocol) with SIPazon (amazon of SIP) platform.
JNT provides a system that helps stop the entry of any unwanted visitors, to identify them, and to transmit two-way audio and video communication for service requests and emergency calls. Wherever people move, there is a need for effective communication: from a trapped passenger in an elevator to a visitor at a building’s entrance.
Due to changes in IP networks, cloud technology and virtualization, the telecommunications landscape has dramatically changed. The question today is not whether on-premises or cloud-based solutions are the answer. The challenge was how to benefit from the cloud without comprising security, connectivity and edge independency.
JNT identified a gap between edge and cloud in communication layers. Since most of the edge devices are embedded systems with limited resource, a full-package solution was needed to bridge the gap and localize cloud at premises.
A standard way of commissioning and easy activation

Installing TOSIBOX® Lock for Container required JNT adopting Docker, a world-leading platform for container technology, which was installed without any issues. Once activated, TOSIBOX® Lock for Container was remotely matched with TOSIBOX® Virtual Central Lock, the hub of all TOSIBOX® connections set up in the remote alarm center.
The Lock for Container and Virtual Central Lock establish between them a point-to-point VPN tunnel over WAN, enabling secure and reliable remote connectivity for IP calls from communication things.
The compelling benefits of cloud audio-video combined with TOSIBOX® Lock for Container explain its emerging status as the dominant solution for today’s SIP communication. As the industry landscape continues to evolve and take shape, it is becoming increasingly clear that cloud audio-video service needs greater cyber security and reliability.
JNT installs TOSIBOX® Lock for Container in all its jNode devices, and the license is later activated by the customer. Each building has one jNode with the TOSIBOX® Lock for Container software inside, and there is a gateway at the control center. This solution brings added value to JNT by enabling easy remote maintenance and data collection, a standard way of commissioning and easy activation. The company plans to use TOSIBOX® Lock for Container more widely in its upcoming projects, enabling new services and sales opportunities.
“Thanks to TOSIBOX® Lock for Container, we have a rich offer of technologies, solutions and services! This brings big opportunities to realize in sales as well as unleashing the power of the cloud without compromising security.”
