VoIP Switch - Phybridge Debuts New VoIP Switch that Could Change the Game

January 28, 2013


A VoIP switch is a critical element of any next generation platform. It serves as a comprehensive, fully integrated solution for delivering an array of VoIP-based services from the home user that only has a few lines to a large corporation with countless lines. Touted as being ideal in many types of scenarios, VoIP switches are reshaping the VoIP landscape, allowing users to see many more capabilities that are always being enhanced.

In a recent entry to the space, Phybridge (News - Alert) Inc. officially debuted its new network switch PoLRE, an acronym that is short for Power over Long Reach Ethernet. It differs from other offerings currently within the VoIP switch vertical, as it can still work successfully even if a local area network is temporarily unavailable due to the fact that the switch delivers telephony separately. It actually leverages two-wire Ethernet technology that, according to company officials, extends four times further than traditional data switches.

“Data switch reach limitations, wiring requirements and industry biases forced customers to layer the IP phone on the data switch fabic,” Graham Brown, Phybridge added in a recent article. “The Phybridge switch innovation eliminates all of these barriers and challenges for customers and provides a much better business model for partners.”

Switching gears a bit, Sippy Software, another revolutionary VoIP switch provider, has just unveiled its robust payment solution. While the target audience for this solution includes Internet telephony service providers (ITSPs), calling card providers, call shops and mobile and fixed line telecommunications operators, truly anyone looking to enhance their industry footprint should leverage this product without delay.

Sippy FLEX enables customers to rent a Sippy license for only $870 per month. They can then select to add-on a variety of capabilities powered by Sippy Software as per their individual needs, in addition to being able to complete 7,000 simultaneous calls per license. The platform comes with a variety of Class 4 and Class 5 functions, including routing and rating tables, an integrated billing system, an ultra high level of support for online payments using major payment processors, sales reporting and an easy-to-use account plan and management tools.  

“Instead of incurring hardware management and software maintenance expenses and substantial up-front investments, you can simply rent a fully maintained solution hosted in state-of-the-art data centers. With redundant hardware, guaranteed bandwidth and 24x7 monitoring you can focus on what’s essential – achieving your business goals,” Sippy Software commented in regards to its innovation.
