Enterprises migrate to IP telephony for a number of reasons, such as cost savings, the ability to provide better service to their customers and to gain a competitive edge.
Exploring this market, Citel, a VoIP migration company, has announced that the company’s VoIP migration device, the Portico TVA, will be displayed at the upcoming ITEXPO. The show is being held August 26-29, 2013 at the Mandalay Bay Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada. Broad-Connect Telecom, Inc., one of the company’s partners, is also participating in the show.
Broad-Connect has developed a system that helps users to SIP-enable their legacy handsets. This facilitates a smooth and economical transition to voice on Microsoft (News - Alert) Lync. It helps large companies to move all of their IT and telephony needs to Microsoft Lync.
Apart from helping companies in this all important transition, this new system helps them in preserving the functionalities which they consider important. It also provided enhanced functionalities in IP telephony which can be easily added to the existing handsets.
The Citel Portico Telephone VoIP Adapter (TVA) allows users to get all the advantages of IP telephony. This is achieved by making use of the PBX (News - Alert) telephones and wiring infrastructure the users have in place. Portico eases the process of migration and the adapter is transparent to most users.
“There has been a great deal of interest at Citel in having the Portico TVA work with Microsoft Lync; however, due to compatibility issues, that was always a concern,” said Ian Gomm, VP, Sales & Marketing at Citel. “However, Broad-Connect developed a server system that bridged the compatibility issue and we are looking forward to working with them to bring this joint solution to market.”
