The growth of activity in the Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) market space all but guarantees that new products and services will be emerging in this space for some time to come. As companies pursue greater market share in this vibrant market, the new products emerging will likely do so with an eye toward landing new customers and keeping the old in place. Recently, IPTAM released the newest version of its private branch exchange (PBX (News - Alert)) system, which brought several new opportunities with it.
The IPTAM PBX version 3.2 release boasts not only an update to the operating system, now running the Debian 8 “Jessie” release, but also an update to the Linux kernel, now running version 4.4.41. Perhaps most importantly, it's also taken an update to the Asterisk system, running version 11.25.0. It's an update that reflects the reality of the overall market, as Deutsche Telekom (News - Alert) systems are increasingly replacing Integrated Services Digital Network (ISDN) services with IP connections instead. That's where the IPTAM PBX system has the greatest potential to provide value, giving users access to greater investment security by providing necessary tools and systems to help the migration carry out.
Not only has IPTAM PBX 3.2 been tested for operation direction at the session initiation protocol (SIP) system connection level of the Deutsche Telekom system, but also, it supports operation for all IP-based connections where ISDN multi-device connections are replaced. It even boasts fax server operations without the need to bring in T.38 protocol, though it will support said protocol as well.
Throw in an array of security measures from the automatic creation of SIP passwords to encryption for both internal and external telephony operations, along with provisioning for a variety of endpoints, and the system shows off its incredible depth. Perhaps most notably, IPTAM is a partner with beroNet, and since the new IPTAM PBX has an Asterisk (News - Alert) base, that makes it particularly well-suited to work with beroNet's line of VoIP gateway systems.
It's versatility that makes this new VoIP-based release particularly noteworthy; the sheer amount of systems that it works with already, the ability to make a better bridge from ISDN to VoIP, the multiple levels of security...you put all these together in one package and it's clear why this system should prove deeply attractive to businesses looking to better make connections happen. There's simply too much going on here for someone to not find value at some point.
A truly versatile system that covers a lot of waterfront all at once, IPTAM PBX 3.2 should have all the necessary connectivity to make it an indispensable system going forward for those looking to augment VoIP connectivity at work.
