AGN Networks Launches OnDemandSIP™ Trunking for Avaya one-X™ Quick Edition
Enables small companies and branch offices to establish affordable, business-class phone service in minutes
23-Aug-2006 - SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., VoiceCon 2006 – AGN Networks today introduced a new service that will provide small businesses and branch offices using Avaya one-X™ Quick Edition phones a quick and affordable way to route phone calls over an Internet connection with business-class security and reliability. AGN Networks is a leading business-centric Internet telephony service provider. Avaya (NYSE:AV) is a leading global provider of business communications software, systems and services.
Avaya one-X™ Quick Edition cost-effectively eliminates the need for a central telephony server by embedding the functionality of an IP PBX into the phones themselves. With AGN Networks OnDemandSIP™ Trunking Service for Avaya one-X Quick Edition, companies can reduce their telephony services costs even further by routing voice calls securely over their Internet connection – without having to purchase individual hard-wired phone lines. According to AGN, most organizations realize a savings of 50 to 70 percent with the company’s service, including the cost of inbound toll-free calls, international dialing and other voice services.
OnDemandSIP is a business-class phone service that uses Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) for call control and routing and connects the Avaya phones peer-to-peer. The service can be set up in real time and requires no special hardware.
“Businesses simply purchase their Avaya one-X Quick Edition phone, call or visit the AGN website to select a phone number from almost anywhere in the United States, and they can be up and running in less than 30 minutes,” said Michael Hartley, director of operations, AGN Networks. “By marrying AGN services with innovative Avaya technology, branch offices and small businesses now can take advantage of the same productivity-enhancing intelligent communications capabilities that are used by the world’s largest corporations – all priced to fit their budget.”
“The simplicity and cost-effectiveness of Avaya one-X Quick Edition are a perfect match for SIP Service providers looking to address the small office market,” added Geoffrey Baird, vice president and general manager, Communications Appliance Division, Avaya. “Companies can leverage their existing Internet connection for dial tone and can add new phones to their network on demand. That can add up to cost savings and productivity gains that benefit their bottom line.”
AGN Networks OnDemandSIP features disaster recovery protection that significantly exceeds that available through traditional telephony service providers. When coupled with Avaya one-X Quick Edition phones that back up each other up automatically over the network, organizations benefit from robust business continuity features without having to purchase additional hardware or software.
