Switchvox SMB 3.5 and AA60 Switchvox Appliance

Switchvox SMB 3.5 and the AA60 Switchvox ApplianceDigium today released Switchvox SMB 3.5 and the AA60 Switchvox Appliance. Switchvox IP PBX products offer Web 2.0 applications, including integration with CRM applications such as Salesforce.com and SugarCRM, as well as Google Maps integration through Switchvox SMB’s Switchboard interface. Digium claims that customers can easily create custom mashups that leverage other Web applications, with no programming knowledge required.

Highlights of Switchvox SMB 3.5 include:
• Integrated phone management—Streamlined phone configuration without the need to manually enter the network address of each phone saves the system administrator or integrator time. Switchvox automatically finds phones and allows their extensions to be specified through the Switchvox interface or through the phone.
• Multi-level administration—Increases system security by giving some administrators access only to chosen areas of the phone system.
• Batch direct inward dial (DID) mapping—Allows administrators to quickly map all of the company’s extensions to direct dial numbers rather than keying them into the IP PBX one at a time.
• Batch caller ID configuration—Lets administrators specify per extension outbound caller ID for all extensions with one simple setting.
• Enhanced phonebook panel—Users can add multiple extensions at once to their personalized Switchboard phonebook, saving time during setup for employees of larger companies.
• Type to find extensions—Administrators can start typing an individual’s name and a search feature quickly finds the extension. This makes it much faster to navigate larger phone systems with many extensions.

The new AA60 Switchvox Appliance replaces the tower server for both SOHO and SMB products. The AA60 offers:
• Small form factor—It weighs about 10 lbs. and can be mounted on a wall to save space.
• Increased reliability—A one-year warranty comes standard; a three-year warranty is optional.
• Full coverage by the Digium Exceptional Satisfaction Program—The strongest guarantee in open source telephony gives customers their money back if the product is defective or fails to perform as described.
• VoIP ready—No extra hardware is necessary to connect to SIP or IAX voice over IP trunks.
• Support for PSTN connectivity—Support for one to eight analog ports or a T1/E1 line gives customers greater flexibility in working with their existing network.

The new IP PBX products will be available on March 31, 2008. For more info go to www.digium.com/switchvox. Pricing begins at $3,390 for a Switchvox SMB and AA60 bundle for 10 users, including one-year subscription and warranty.
