VoIP Supply Spreads Word about its Digium VoIP Equipment Offerings
By Carrie Schmelkin, TMCnet Web Editor
The start of a new year often means new clothes, hobbies, goals and, in the case of VoIP technology, VoIP equipment. For those looking to makeover their VoIP equipment along with their wardrobes this January, look no further than VoIP Supply as the company is spreading the word about the new products from Digium (News - Alert) that is has added to its lineup.
According to the VoIP equipment company, “Don’t let an Asterisk failure put your job on the line” and instead opt for the Digium R800 and R850 failover appliances, which is designed with open-sourced Asterisk (News - Alert) designers in mind. Digium’s Redundancy Series (or the “R-Series”) products, are a family of “inexpensive, versatile appliances” that allow for physical layer failover of analog (POTS) and digital (T1, E1, PRI or BRI) telephony connections to Asterisk-based communications systems, VoIP Supply officials explained in a recent email campaign.
With the R-Series, Asterisk administrators are able to create high-availability solutions that guarantee uninterrupted business communications, even in the event of a catastrophic hardware or software failure.
“The Digium R800 and R850 appliances include all the tools necessary to build a fully redundant active/passive communications solution,” VoIP Supply officials wrote. “If the primary server experiences a hardware or software fault, all telecom services will automatically switch to the backup server. The R-Series integrates with software to mirror file systems, manages the transition of a shared IP address and monitors system health between the primary and backup.”
In other company news, just in time for the holidays last December, VoIP Supply announced that its offerings just keep getting better as the company announced that it has added Panasonic (News - Alert) SIP phones to its family of products – phones that are touted for being of high quality, simple to use, and priced right to ease your transition into VoIP phone service.
“Panasonic is highly respected and recognizable so these great new Panasonic SIP phones are sure to garner a lot of interest,” said Garrett Smith (News - Alert), chief marketing officer at VoIP Supply. “Simple to use and simple to set up; Panasonic SIP phones offer everything you need and nothing you don’t for a professional VoIP solution.”
The Panasonic SIP Phones lineup is catered toward consumers that favor intuitive, no nonsense phones from entry level to management levels. Specifically, a wireless, DECT (News - Alert) model in the Panasonic KX-TGP550 is available to increase consumer mobility around the office. The hybrid model offers a dual solution combining a wired desk phone with a cordless handset to allow you to roam the office and assist customers on the go, according to company officials.
