The Vonexus IP PBX, called Enterprise Interaction Center(R) (EIC), is designed exclusively for Microsoft small to medium-sized business customers. EIC applications include SIP-based switching, auto-attendant, presence management, call routing and queuing, and Exchange-based unified messaging. Out-of-the-box screen-pop and IVR integration will be available in the second quarter for Microsoft Great Plains and MS CRM.
Quintum's SIP product, called the Tenor MultiPath Switch, is used to transfer calls between the public switched telephone network and IP-based local or wide area networks. It offers EIC customers maximum reliability and improved quality of service with patented technology that provides real-time backup integrated into the switch.
"We reviewed gateways from other vendors, but they required that a complete QoS IP network be implemented at every router, so any portion of our customers' network that wasn't supporting QoS would be vulnerable to outages," said Vonexus president, Jerry Fleming. "In addition to this critical differentiator affecting reliability, the Quintum switch also offered our customers a unique MultiPath design that gives EIC intelligent connectivity to both analog devices and the PSTN."
Unlike other standard voice over IP gateways that simply provide circuit to packet connectivity, the Quintum Tenor provides intelligent connectivity between analog devices, the PSTN, and IP devices, making it the perfect branch office gateway solution. Other capabilities include intelligent call routing, a PacketSaver(TM) feature for optimum bandwidth utilization, and NATAccess(TM), which enables it to be deployed behind the corporate firewall for maximum security.
"EIC's standards-based, all-software IP PBX, combined with our SIP gateway, gives Microsoft SMB customers all the benefits of VoIP -- from cost- savings to increased functionality -- while addressing primary concerns about its reliability, quality of service, ease of installation, and security," said Charles Rutledge, vice president of marketing for Quintum.
EIC is offered as a complete, out-of-the box IP telephony solution running on pre-integrated Intel, or HP servers. It comes packaged with Intel's HMP software, the Quintum SIP switch, a SIP proxy server, and IP phones, including the award-winning Polycom SoundPoint IP family of phones.
The solution can be purchased through the Vonexus channel, composed of IP telephony value-added resellers throughout the world, as well as Vonexus master distributors, which include Alliance Systems and CommLogik Corp.
Headquartered in Eatontown, NJ, Quintum specializes in voice-over-IP technologies that bring reliability and voice clarity of public telephone networks to Internet telephony. Its Tenor VoIP MultiPath switch product lines are designed to help businesses of all sizes achieve a risk free migration to a converged network.
