introduced a new line of turn-key SIP IP PBX appliances. The product family combines Pingtel’s award-winning SIPxchange SIP PBX unified communications software for Linux with best-of-breed Intel servers, AudioCodes gateways, and phones from Polycom, LG-Nortel and Snom, for overall VoIP ease of use and scalability.
The new Pingtel products are 100-percent SIP, enterprise-grade and full-featured turnkey appliances that include integrated voice mail, automated call distribution, multiple auto attendants, a built-in presence server, and a Web-based plug & play system configuration and management tool for industry-leading ease of use. Each has a fully-integrated PSTN gateway and caters to a specific enterprise type, as follows:
- SIPxchange SE – Serves as a cost-efficient VoIP solution for small enterprises with up to 100 users;
- SIPxchange ME - For medium enterprises of up to 1,000 users; and
- SIPxchange LE – For large enterprises that can scale up to several thousand.
Both the ME and LE models are also available in redundant high-availability mode, with the option of having the high-availability servers geographically distributed. The appliances integrate seamlessly into an existing IT environment, allowing users to convert to VoIP at their own pace while following already established best practices within their IT organization. And, with Pingtel’s SIPxchange installation wizard, a full enterprise system can be deployed in under 30 minutes with only a few mouse clicks.
“As open source VoIP solutions become an integrated component of an organization’s mobility strategy, a robust and enterprise-grade architecture that facilitates scaling, redundancy, and ease of use is extremely important,” said Mads Lillelund, president and CEO of Bluesocket. “Our family of Pingtel SIPxchange appliances sets a new industry benchmark for delivering VoIP communications services, enabling enterprises of all sizes to realize immediate benefits of higher voice quality, improved scalability and significant cost savings.”
The entire turn-key voice solution product line is supported through Pingtel’s global technical assistance center. For more information on the new appliances, please visit http://www.pingtel.com/appliances
