Skype to Sell Co-Branded VoSKY Exchange PBX-to-Skype Gateway

Skype and VoSKY Technologies introduced co-branded versions of VoSKY Exchange, a rack mountable PBX-to-Skype gateway that enables business users to make and receive Internet-based Skype calls over standard office phones. Two models will be available.

Both models of Skype VoSKY Exchange add four Skype lines to the office PBX without requiring changes to the existing PBX or desk phone infrastructure. Multiple Exchange boxes can be set up in different company offices anywhere in the world for free calling between sites. Calls to other Skype users are also free, while calls to non-Skype users are typically charged at SkypeOut global rates.

The 9040 model offers trunk-side (FXO) connectivity to the PBX. The 9140 model connects on the extension-side (FXS) and adds the ability to transfer Skype calls between offices by extension without dialing the full office number.

The co-branded Skype VoSKY Exchange products are available in the UK and Rep. of Ireland.
