CHANNEL PARTNERS DSCI Corp. (Booth #3045 at the Channel Partners Conference & Expo), a New England-based ITSP, is announcing that it has added iPBX Trunking to its iPBX Hosted Communications Service offerings. iPBX Trunking sends voice traffic from a premise-based phone system over the same connection used for data, eliminating the need for separate voice access. iPBX voice-over-IP calling features are overlaid on the existing system to provide bundled usage, extension dialing between sites, and support for remote users. DSCI says the service is completely flexible. Adding capacity or transitioning to a fully-hosted service is easy at any time.
iPBX Trunking is an ideal solution for the enterprise with a PBX or other premise-based phone system that has not yet reached end-of-life, but is limiting business operations through lack of VoIP features,” explains Jeff Kubick, DSCIs VP of Marketing. With iPBX Trunking, those features become available now without an expensive forklift replacement of the whole system.”
iPBX Trunking is a cost-saving solution, not only because it utilizes the current phone system, but because multiple offices can share trunk capacity and calls between sites are free. Additional services available with iPBX Trunking include auto attendants, hunt groups, call recording, and support for remote users. Current user add-ons include a Bria softphone and iPBX Anywhere, which lets calls transfer back and forth between a cell phone just as if it was the users desk phone. Other group and individual user enhancements are planned for rollout over the next year.
