The provider of enterprise class Internet phone solutions, Star2Star Communications (News - Alert), recently announced the release of the high-capacity IP PBX, called StarBox 5500 IP PBX.
The new PBX connects up to 500 extensions with up to 100 simultaneous voice conversations, Star2Star said in a press release.
“Until now, the only solutions for larger VoIP customers cost tens of thousands of dollars per location. The StarBox 5500 brings Star2Star’s quality, reliability, and savings to customers with larger offices,” CEO of Star2Star Communications said while explaining the benefits of the new IP PBX system.
The StarBox 5500 joins the StarBox 2200 and StarBox Lite models in Star2Star’s StarBox product line, based on Star2Star’s innovative Blended Architecture. The products use a perfect blend of on-premise and hosted “in the cloud” components to deliver highly reliable, business-class call quality over standard Internet connections. Star2Star also provides customers with multiple failover options in the event of a power or Internet outage.
StarBox 5500 beat the previous two products in the capacity. While, the 2200 can connect up to 250 extensions and 50 simultaneous calls, the StarBox Lite can connect 20 extensions and 10 calls. The 5500, which supports 500 users, can be used as a drop-in replacement for customers who have outgrown their smaller StarBoxes.
Except for their differing capacities, all three models share an identical feature set and management interface, the company maintained.
In keeping with its corporate mission, the StarBox 5500 is packaged in a 1U rack-mountable chassis. It uses a Solid State Disk (SSD) for quiet, reliable operation and draws only 100 Watts of power, Star2Star revealed in the release.
In the press release, Star2Star also announced that the StarBox 5500 is available for immediate delivery.
Last month, Star2Star announced that its flagship product, the Business Internet Telephone System, has won accolades from the editors of Internet Telephony (News - Alert) and Customer Interaction Solutions magazine. It won the “Product of the Year” Award for the second year in a row.
