Kagoor Networks, a San Mateo, Calif. company that specializes in Voice-over-IP (VoIP) Border Control products today announced that it has raised US$4 million as a follow-up to its recent third round of financing.

Siemens Venture Capital (SVC) led the round with participation from existing investors VantagePoint Venture Partners and ComVentures. This latest round of capital will allow the company to continue expanding the sales and marketing of its VoiceFlow series product line.

The VoIP Border Control (also called Session Border Control) category has been gaining traction and momentum with VoIP service providers and vendors as packet voice trials and deployments continue to accelerate.

“Siemens clearly has a major focus on packet voice products and technology and believes that the VoIP border control technology is an important piece in building end-to-end packet voice networks,” said Bjoern Christensen, president & CEO of Siemens Venture Capital.

Kagoor’s VoiceFlow platform and products solve crucial problems faced by both service providers and enterprises that are evolving to VoIP networks.

These functions include VoIP security and firewall features, network address translation (NAT), legacy firewall traversal, call admission control, remote monitoring and management of VoIP endpoints, Quality of Service (QoS) features like packet marking, and a variety of management, regulatory and control features.
