Citel Announces EXTender Support for Avaya IP Office

By Johanne Torres, TMCnet Contributing Editor

VoIP migration company Citel today announced EXTender support for Avaya's (News - Alert) IP Office. The EXTender 4000 and EXTender 6000 will now serve to distribute Avaya's IP Office system's features and services to home and branch offices.
The EXTender 4000 seems to be a good option for home offices and other single-user remote sites, while the 6000 model is designed for multi-user remote sites. Offices can use the systems bundled with a Citel PBXgateway termination device at the central PBX location to pass Avaya's IP Office features and applications to Avaya Definity 6400, 5400, 2400, and Magix 4400 series handsets.
The EXTender 4000 has one port, and the EXTender 6000 is available in 8 or 12 port configurations. The 6000 model has an optional “intelligent” FXO port for E911. 911 calls are routed via the FXO port, and provide survivability in the event of WAN failure.
“Today's workforce is mobile and decentralized,” noted  Citel's CEO, Michael Robinson, in a statement. “To be competitive, businesses need to be able to connect branch offices and remote workers in a more cost effective, seamless way.”
Robinson added: “With the EXTender 4000 and 6000, businesses can focus on maintaining a single, central PBX (News - Alert) platform while delivering all the benefits of IP telephony to remote workers.”
The EXTender 4000 and EXTender 6000 are currently available via Citel's network of service providers and distributors.
Citel had recently introduced its SIP trunking voice system, which utilizes the company's Citel EXTender product suite. The system enables distributed enterprises to replace branch office local circuits and connect directly to a centralized PBX, via a SIP trunking service provider.
Citel’s SIP trunking voice system includes Citel's PBXgateway (I or II) at the central PBX site, and Citel EXTender 4100, 6000, IP6000, or 7000 at remote locations.
