SIPBox changes the company’s name to NeoPhonetics
. “Neo” is a prefix derived from the Greek language meaning a revival in modern form. “Phonetics” is the science that deals with the production, transmission and perception of the spoken language.
“We wanted a name that better communicated our full range of services for the long-term,” said Chad Agate, co-founder and CEO of NeoPhonetics. “The combination of ‘Neo’ and ‘Phonetics’ best reflects our main objective – to design and build the most advanced phone systems, based on the latest, most cost-effective technology available.”
Working with the flexibility of Asterisk, NeoPhonetics engineers and integrates new and hybrid telephony solutions for customers who want to make a seamless transition to VoIP. The open standards nature of Asterisk enables a variety of technical combinations that would not be possible when working within the restraints of proprietary solutions. This provides tremendous cost savings and ease of management when moving employees, upgrading equipment, programming conferencing capabilities and establishing remote facilities.
“NeoPhonetics is taking a strategic stance in the open source telephony market,” said Krithi Rao, Frost & Sullivan Industry Analyst. “As more companies adopt open source platforms, there is great potential for NeoPhonetics as one of the few integrators with enough expertise to offer a complete VoIP solution based on Asterisk – from the engineering phase and through on-site implementation. The new name suits NeoPhonetics’ next-generation objectives.”
