For businesses making the switch to IP Telephony and UC, a future full with success and productivity can seem as though it’s within reach. Often times however, this goal can be put on the back burner if the proper infrastructure to support VoIP is not in place.
Ontario-based Phybridge (News - Alert) says it can remove any frustrations associated with infrastructure with its simple, low-cost, robust LAN platform. The technology offers a single point of central convergence to enable VoIP by making use of existing voice infrastructures. That means companies can spend more time focused on their core business and apply their budgets to the area that will drive a higher return on investment.
The advantage, Phybridge officials say, over others’ approaches, is reduced complexity, challenges and risks – because you are not ripping and replacing infrastructure – which can increase LAN readiness and management costs.
Earlier this year, an Illinois-based college was highlighted for its use of the Phybridge VoIP Enabler to implement a full IP network that extended communications capabilities while consolidating all switches into one building.
With the help of Phybridge partner, MidCo, the university was able to attain IP capabilities without having to deal with any of the headaches associated with creating a new LAN environment where each IP phone is a switch for the data device.
A large state government customer with over 50,000 users was also recently highlighted for its success using the VoIP enabler to implement a cloud-based voice offering from one of Phybridge’s partners. To date, implementation of the VoIP enabler has made it possible to for the government customer to successfully trial seven different locations.
