System Designed to Handle a Massive Number of Users and Calls All within One Single Server

Zultys, a leading provider of innovative unified communications solutions that empower businesses to collaborate effectively, today introduces the MX-E™ to their powerful MX series of SIP-based IP telephone systems. The latest addition to Zultys’ award-winning line of unified communication product line, is a powerful enterprise-class IP phone system designed to allow corporations with a large number of users to accommodate these users within a single physical appliance.

MX-E is available in three different models; the base MX-E model supports 300 users, while the MX-E+ can support up to 1000 users, and the MX-E++ is designed to accommodate businesses with up to 2000 users on a single appliance. The unit combines powerful UC functionality and high quality voice calling all in a single IP-PBX platform, featuring T1/PRI support and up to 300 SIP trunks on the base model, with the MX-E+ supporting 1000 SIP trunks, and up to 2000 trunks on the MX-E++ model. Functions such as integrated voice, fax, voice mail, presence, instant messaging, automatic call recording, Zultys’ Unified Communication client for Mac and Windows, as well as the Zultys Mobile Communicator™ for iPhone and Android come prepackaged with every purchase of the MX-E system and allow businesses to expand their communication and make them more efficient both when connecting fellow employees and for connecting with customers.

“MX-E is a valuable addition to our lineup of IP-PBX platforms, as it significantly expands the capacity of our line of appliances, particularly in trunking.  MX-SE, MX250, along with the virtualized platform MXvirtual, and now MX-E, have the advantage of all running the same MX software and therefore present a singular product.  No change in feature, function, or administration is a major benefit to both our end users as well as our channel partners,” said Steven Francis, chief sales and marketing officer for Zultys.

Scalable and Connected

MX-E, with its expanded user and trunking capacity also can be included in an MXnetwork interoperating with all other MX appliances and virtual instances.  Users can be seamlessly connected into a corporate MXnetwork, where all employees need to do is dial a coworker’s extension to make calls between offices on the opposite sides of the world—all without incurring long-distance calling charges. MXnetwork can connect up to 128 MX systems at different locations and can accommodate 10,000 employees.

Even workers on the go and in remote locations can be joined to the corporate phone system via the Zultys Mobile smart phone application. Zultys’ advanced suite of features are available anywhere and employees retain their own personal user identity regardless of whether they are using the office phone, the smart phone app, or are working from home and calling from the softphone using their laptop’s mic and speakers.

Unmatched Reliability

MX-E is ready for continuous heavy use by large corporations, with a major focus on reliability within the design. It features redundancy for major components such as power supplies, cooling fans and storage drives. MX-E boasts dual redundant hot-swappable power supplies. The system comes equipped with a total of four drives and, similar to the power supplies, the drives are hot-swappable. Each MX-E also includes three cooling fans. The fans can adjust speed to remove excessive heat if the unit begins to run too warm and the system is designed to be fully operational within an acceptable temperature range with only two working fans out of three in case of an emergency.

Zultys, a leading global provider of IP phone systems and unified communications (UC) systems, has launched Zultys Cloud Services, an umbrella solution for enterprises that offers cloud-based IP hosted phone systems, UC options, SIP trunking services and contact center services. The solution is derived from the award-winning MX series of IP phone systems for enterprises and is easily deployable for businesses of all sizes.

With Zultys Cloud Services, businesses can improve communications and optimize productivity through a combination of UC functionality and high quality voice calling. The solution expands on the features and user experience available from the company’s well-established premise-based IP phone systems in a cloud-based format, in response to the growing demand for cloud-based solutions but lack of offerings that provide true enterprise capabilities.

“When selecting a business phone system, one size doesn’t fit all,” said Neil Lichtman, CEO of Zultys. “It’s about finding the right fit so you can focus on running your business, not worrying about your phone system. Many cloud phone systems are designed for the very small-office/home-office market and lack true comprehensive business functionality. Many don’t offer you the flexibility of either having it on your premises or in the cloud with the same exact user experience. Zultys hosted solutions are built upon over a decade of delivering powerful enterprise-class communications capabilities to thousands of organizations throughout the world.”

The long list of features includes integrated voice, fax, voice mail, presence, instant messaging, automatic call recording, access to a contact center and a built-in conferencing bridge. Also included is the Zultys Mobile Communicator, available for iOS and Android, and the Zultys MXIE UC desktop client. Companies have an option to choose, which features they need and only pay for those.

Zultys Cloud Services is quite flexible and can scale up to support thousands of users across over a hundred different locations. Companies can pay for the services on a month-to-month basis rather than sign a multi-year contract and adjust the features or number of users each month.

Modern data centers securely house the hosted IP phone systems and are monitored around the clock, with server-, network- and data center-level redundancy to minimize interruptions in a client’s service. Zultys’ network of Authorized Channel Partners handles day-to-day management functions so that employees can speak to a local representative rather than a third-party contact center.

Zultys, a leading provider of innovative unified communications solutions that empower businesses to collaborate effectively, announced today that TMC, a global, integrated media company, has named MXvirtual™, Zultys’ Cloud-based IP PBX,  as a 2014 Unified Communications Product of the Year Award winner.

“We are honored to have MXvirtual recognized with the 2014 Unified Communications Product of the Year Award by such a well-regarded publication,” said Steven Francis, chief sales and marketing officer at Zultys. “MXvirtual allows end users true flexibility in how they deploy their communications system. They have a choice of a cloud-based, premised-based or hybrid combination system with all the same functionality and applications. MXvirtual is running the exact same software as our premise-based system, making it totally transparent to the end users and channel partners and thus eliminating the need for additional training for management and technical support personnel. For multi-site organizations, Zultys offers versatile solutions that combine both premise-based and hosted components to guarantee disaster recovery and survivability in any situation.”

“I am excited to proclaim Zultys as a 2014 recipient of TMC’s Unified Communications Product of the Year Award for their innovative product, MXvirtual,” said Rich Tehrani, CEO, TMC. “Our judges were very impressed with the ingenuity and excellence displayed by Zultys in their groundbreaking work on MXvirtual.”

Allworx Corp, a Windstream (Nasdaq: WIN) company, today announced the immediate availability of Interact Professional 1.1, adding dramatic new functionality to its versatile application that provides intuitive control over an Allworx phone through a customer’s computer.

Konftel Conference Phone

Konftel Wireless Conference Phone


Konftel 300IP named best IP conference phone

The Swedish trade magazine Telekom Idag has declared the Konftel 300IP the best available IP-based conference phone in the market.
The Konftel 300IP topped the performance charts following tests on selected models of phones, which were connected to Telekom Idag’s test network in a 25-square-metre conference room. The products that were tested were the Aastra S850i, Konftel 300IP, Phoenix Quattro 3 SIP and Polycom Soundstation IP 7000.

Simple usability and superior audio quality
The Konftel 300IP rated highly for its user-friendliness, features and audio quality.  In the view of the test panel, it should be easy to get conference calls up and running. For that reason, the panel appreciated the integrated bridge system for up to five participants, the capability of the conference guide to pre-programme group calls and the additional feature that enables calls to be recorded.  Exhaustive tests were carried out to ascertain the quality of the audio, which needs to be crystal clear for the participants on both ends.
 
The Konftel 300IP was declared the winner of the tests, achieving the highest final score.
