Pingtel Introduces Turn-Key SIPxchange Appliance

Pingtel Corp., a provider of open source, commercial-grade enterprise communications solutions, introduced a line of turnkey SIP IP PBX Appliances for the small to medium enterprise market based on technology from Alliance Systems , Intel, AudioCodes and Polycom.

Alliance Systems has worked exclusively with Pingtel to engineer a cost competitive, certified IP PBX appliance that includes post sales technical support and global logistics. These turn-key appliances, supplied by Alliance Systems, utilize Intel servers, AudioCodes gateways, and Red Hat Linux 4.0.

Pingtel's channel partners and enterprise end customers can elect to include any of Polycom's SIP desktop and conference phones as part of the order, or acquire phones separately. Pingtel's SIPxchange, the SIP PBX for Linux, is at the heart of each certified solution, providing enterprise customers with a complete enterprise communications application, including hardware and software support, for about 50 percent less than competing solutions.

Based on the open source sipXpbx from SIPfoundry, the SIPxchange PBX appliance includes the features and functions of traditional PBXs--all delivered using SIP open source code. In addition to PBX features, the SIPxchange appliance includes core business applications, including an automatic call distributor (ACD), and a built-in presence server for true next-generation applications.
