Digium, a provider of VoIP-capable PBX (News - Alert) phone systems for small- to medium-sized businesses, announced that Foehn, Ltd, a U.K.-based systems integrator, has become a Digium Premier Solutions Partner.
Foehn designs Voice over Internet Protocol telephony and unified communications solutions with integration references in call centers, financial services, higher education, online media and charity industry verticals. The company has received increased demand for its Asterisk (News - Alert)-based solutions with clients favouring the technology for its flexibility and affordability, officials said.
For more than five years, Foehn has used Asterisk to provide communications solutions to call centers and enterprises in the U.K. and across the globe.
“Foehn’s expanded relationship with Digium (News - Alert) means we can continue to design and implement innovative Asterisk-based solutions and reinforce our position as experts in Asterisk,” said James Passingham, Foehn’s managing director, in a statement.
Digium is the creator of Asterisk, the open source voice communications software, which is used by more than 3.5 million servers worldwide. The company’s product lines include a range of software and hardware that enable businesses to implement turnkey unified communications solutions or to design their own VoIP systems.

We’re pleased to expand our already strong relationship with Foehn.”
