Broadvox, a Dallas-based provider of IP communications solutions for businesses, and Xorcom, a manufacturer of business telephone interface and appliances based on Asterisk open source software, announced interoperability certification between the Xorcom (News - Alert) series of Asterisk-based IP-PBX solutions and Broadvox SIP Trunking services.
The new offering gives companies “significant” cost savings over traditional telecommunication services to place calls in the United States, Canada, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands while using the Xorcom's IP-PBX (News - Alert) line, according to company officials.
Xorcom’s all-in-one appliances uses VoIP and traditional telephony protocols. Smaller users can benefit from the basic XR1000, which is suitable for SOHO up to the XR3000, which supports up to eight PRI connections and hundreds of analog and IP extensions. In addition, the TwinStar feature allows dual-server redundancy for a complete PBX experience, including telephony trunks, interfaces and IP phones.
Meanwhile, Broadvox’s (News - Alert) SIP Trunking services offers efficient bandwidth use for voice and data applications. In addition, the service features a lower service cost for telephony use, including unlimited local calling and reduced fees for long distance and international toll calls.
Broadvox delivers its SIP Trunking services on a state-of-the-art IP communications network, which is monitored around the clock and supported by SIP engineers and customer service organizations.
The bundled solution is available via Broadvox and Xorcom reseller channels, company officials said.
In other news, Broadvox recently announced interoperability certification with NEC Unified Solutions Inc.’s NEC’s (News - Alert) UNIVERGE SV8100 and UX5000 IP communications servers.
When deployed with NEC’s UNIVERGE IP communication servers, Broadvox GO SIP Trunking delivers affordable IP communications with support for digital, wired and wireless networks, the companies said. The features delivered through the SV8100 or UX500 can be shared between branch offices by linking multiple NEC communications servers together.
