AltiGen Intros New VoIP System
By Erik Linask, Associate Editor,
Internet Telephony magazine
AltiGen Communications (News
), which introduced its first VoIP
phone systems in 1996, has now come out with its latest, the MAX1000 phone system. The company designs its systems for SMBs, multi-site businesses, branch offices, call centers, and banking institutions, bringing them the benefits of VoIP telephony, including added features, legacy support, simplified communications for telecommuters and multi-site deployments, and a consolidated corporate infrastructure — in addition to the savings enjoyed from IP-based communications.
The new MAX1000 has been specifically designed for locations with up to 48 extensions and includes SIP
trunking capabilities, almost an essential feature today for easily connecting a variety of SIP-based endpoints. It also brings to users conferencing capabilities with scheduling, on demand recording, 4,500 hours of voice mail storage, and mobility options that are critical for today’s mobile workforce. Customers get all this, and more, in a single, do-it-yourself appliance, making deployment as easy as possible — which is also integral, as customers look more and more for solutions that require minimal (optimally, none) truckrolls for installation.
“The MAX1000 opens new markets for AltiGen,” said AltiGen CEO, Gilbert Hu. "Most competitors are offering limited feature gateways as their only option for small or branch office customers. In a single box, AltiGen’s MAX1000 customers will have everything they need to run a first rate business. Every MAX1000 can function as a standalone system, or multiple MAX1000 systems can be controlled through a single enterprise management application.”
With its IP710 and IP705, AltiGen provides a complete solution customers that is designed to enable all the benefits of IP
telephony, from basic features, like voice mail access and call transfer, to more sophisticated options, like personalization capabilities and real-time call center statistics display. Mobile users can also install the company’s IP Talk softohone for mobile VoIP communication capabilities. IP Talk can also be configured as a regular extension, allowing users to be part of the office, even when they are on the road or at mobile or home offices.
