Multi-Tech IP Telephony Connects Remote Sales and Support Groups
For Hosted Service Providers or Enterprises Connecting Up to 24 Users
MINNEAPOLIS, Sept. 12 / -- There are a number of ways an organization can connect to a group of workers at a remote location using voice and fax over an IP network or the Internet. Most of them are expensive involving IP phones or an IP PBX. Multi-Tech(R) Systems, Inc., a leading data communications technology company based in suburban Minneapolis, is now shipping an inexpensive solution in the form of a 24-port Voice over IP (VoIP) gateway. The new MultiVOIP(TM) FX gateway (MVPFXS-24) is designed to connect phones and fax machines within a relatively small area such as a sales or support office, apartment building or a call center to an IP network. Analog equipment connects to the MultiVOIP gateway's 24 FXS ports and an IP network connects to the gateway using its 10/100 Ethernet(R) interface. Calls can then be sent through the MultiVOIP gateway over the IP network to other VoIP equipped locations or possibly to a central control center for PSTN routing.
"This is a very straightforward solution to adding a group of sales people, support staff, or any other workers to your IP telephony network," states Chip Harleman, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Multi-Tech Systems, Inc. "We find that organizations ready to make the step towards using Voice over IP in connecting remote workers are faced with some potentially expensive choices, such as throwing out their existing analog phones and fax machines. With the MultiVOIP, existing phones and fax machines can keep on providing their services, while the company's IP network or the Internet provides savings associated with the new technology."
The new MultVOIP Voice over IP gateway (Model MVPFXS-24) provides telephone and fax connectivity to the Internet or an intranet for up to 24 FXS (Foreign Exchange Station) devices. These devices can include analog phones, fax machines and key system equipment access ports. The MVPFXS-24 also includes one 10/100 Ethernet interface for connecting an IP network. With FXS equipment and IP network connected, the MultiVOIP VoIP gateway integrates voice and fax communications into the data stream of the connected IP network. The MultiVOIP VoIP gateway supports the SIP protocol suite for IP voice communications, voice compression to 5.3K per call including ITU G.723 and G.729, T.38 real-time fax relay for interoperability with other VOIP equipment, DiffServ protocol voice prioritization, along with configuration and management using a web browser or Windows(R).
