Panasonic (News - Alert) provides SIP phones that allow users to route calls over the Internet resulting in increased savings on monthly phone bills. SIP phones can be implemented either as hardware devices or softphones. The growth of the latest technologies like 4G is driving the adoption of SIP phones.
As part of the company’s efforts to deliver simplified communications solutions, Panasonic announced a partnership with serVonic to provide professional communication servers in ISDN- and IP-environments to customers.
The partnership will help Panasonic integrate serVonic’s IXI-PCS Professional Call Server, a client/server-software solution for Windows, Mac and Linux clients. IXI-PCS delivers advanced CTI-features as well as presence management and instant messaging. IXI-PCS can also be deployed as call control gateway for Microsoft (News - Alert) Lync.
serVonic’s CTI-solution allows users to control multiple features at Panasonic’s Communication Servers and make use of the information their IT environment provides.
“We have tested IXI-PCS in version 1.30 with all the CTI (News - Alert)-features as well as with presence management and instant messaging with the systems OneNet and the KX-NS1000 successfully at the Panasonic TSP; All the features work perfectly,” said Jochen Klein, CEO at serVonic.
Panasonic and serVonic have been collaborating on their communication systems for many years. Now that the companies have tested the latest generation of their systems, they are able to offer excellent solutions to common customers, said Jens-Michael Pohl, senior manager of System Engineering at Panasonic System Communications Europe.
serVonic’s IXI-PCS is available for all versions of Panasonic PBXs starting from version 1.30. It is available now at serVonic and sales partners for prices beginning at 393.25 Euro, the company said.
Apart from SIP phones, Panasonic’s offerings also include large ISDN-, IP- and hybrid-based PBX’s (News - Alert). serVonic, on the other hand, also offers a unified messaging solution called IXI-UMS, which has been released for Panasonic’s PBX’s.
