Incentives Increased for Resellers, Integrators and Programmers Certified on Fonality’s trixbox Line of Asterisk (News - Alert)-based IP-PBX Products

Norwalk, CT – August 28, 2008 – Technology Marketing Corporation (TMC) announced today that the company has once again teamed up with Fonality (News - Alert) to host trixbox Open Communication Certification Courses at its upcoming INTERNET TELEPHONY Conference & EXPO at the Los Angeles Convention Center on September 16-18. Registration is now open at

Attendees can sign up for FtOCC Admin, which prepares people to sell and install trixbox, or FtOCC Technician which focuses on trixbox support and troubleshooting. Both courses are part of the Fonality trixbox Open Communication Certification (FtOCC, pronounced "F-talk") series.
The courses will serve as trixbox Pro certification for resellers, integrator and developers, and attendees who successfully complete the training will receive a free demo kit, as well as product and services discounts that will allow them to recoup the cost of the training.
“trixbox is a driving force in the telephony market and gives the channel a lucrative way to participate in the rapidly expanding market opportunity for open source products and services,” said Michael Genaro (News - Alert), vice president of marketing at TMC. “ITEXPO is committed to educating the reseller community on new ways to increase their value in the marketplace and FtOCC Technician certification certainly will do that.”
trixbox Pro is a hybrid-hosted phone system, meaning the IP-PBX and application software is downloaded to the customer site and installed on a centralized PC that connects out to the Fonality network where system health, availability, call quality and usage are constantly monitored. The free hosting service that is part of trixbox Pro allows employees to take their work phone number with them when they leave the office, and have calls ring through to their mobile phone or PC.
“trixbox Pro downloads and installations have exceeded our expectations and we’re fielding lots of incoming requests for specialized training at a variety of levels,” said Arnold Waldstein, Fonality senior vice president of marketing. “FtOCC gives the channel the knowledge and the tools to sell and support trixbox at companies of all sizes.”
