D-LINK now offers MICROSOFT response point SP1 download for VOICECENTER™ IP Phone system to ease small business move to VOIP
FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif.— D-Link, the end-to-end network solutions provider for consumers and business, today announced that Microsoft Response Point Service Pack 1 (SP1) upgrade is now available for download. Small and medium sized businesses using the D-Link VoiceCenter® phone system can make the transition from traditional analog phone systems to lower-cost digital voice services easily with Response Point SP1.
Introduced late last year, the D-Link® VoiceCenter is a feature-rich, cost-effective IP phone system that is easy to use and manage, and is ideally suited for small businesses requiring up to 50 phones and phone lines. Among the essential features of the Response Point software are voice-activated dialing and voicemail access, automated receptionist, built-in auto-provisioning configuration, call-forwarding, call hold, find me-follow me, 3-way call conferencing, voicemail-to-email forwarding, voicemail retrieval over the phone and MS Outlook® contact integration.
“The addition of the SP1 upgrade enables small businesses to easily supplement their existing phone service with Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) services,” said William Brown, associate vice president of technology, D-Link Systems, Inc. in Fountain Valley, Calif. “As customers become more comfortable with the reliability and quality of service offered by VoIP, they can seamlessly move from traditional analog phone systems to VoIP without needing telephony expertise.”
“We are pleased to release Service Pack 1 as a free download to VoiceCenter customers,” said Xuedong Huang, general manager of Microsoft Response Point. “The improved performance and new features of SP1 offers small businesses a complete, easy to use phone system that will meet the changing needs of their business.”
SP1 addresses small business needs for scalability, allowing a much more rapid and cost-effective move from traditional public-switched telephone network (PSTN) lines, he said. With IP service in place, and using a simple VoIP account setup wizard in the Response Point Administrator software, a small business can connect with Internet telephony service providers (ITSPs) to obtain new VoIP phone numbers in a matter of minutes. Installing traditional analog lines can take hours, days or weeks.
SP1 also addresses small businesses’ need to maintain a local presence through the use of a local VoIP phone number. VoIP providers allow businesses to select a local phone number for use in remote locations, alleviating costs to the business and customers for long-distance and toll-free numbers. Using a local phone number, small businesses also can secure their presence as part of local customer resources such as the chamber of commerce and local White and Yellow Pages.
Response Point SP1 also helps small businesses maintain close and responsive relationships with customers through support for Direct Inward Dialing, a key feature enabled by VoIP. A small business can configure Response Point to route known inbound callers directly to a particular extension or pool of extensions. It can furnish a main number or individual employee extensions to ensure that someone is available - virtually anytime or anywhere - for important customers.
D-Link VoiceCenter 5- and 10-phone kits include -- IP-PBX (DVX-2000MS), IP phone (DPH-125MS) and PSTN gateway (DVG-3104MS). The D-Link VoiceCenter phone handsets feature capabilities including auto discovery, and one-touch access to parking, retrieving, transferring, voice dialing other employees and voice dialing personal contacts.
