Gradwell Announces Demo of SIP Integration with OCS2008

Peter Gradwell, MD of Gradwell.com says the roll-out by Microsoft of its Office Communication Server 2008 product has presented the IT reseller community with an enormous opportunity to enhance their customers’ communication capacity and facility.

“OCS 2008 provides Unified Messaging, Voice Communications and tight integration of telephony with existing Exchange, Outlook and MS CRM environments, as a bolt-on product. However, OCS in my view is a cumbersome beast.

“Until now, it has not talked easily to a standard VoIP platform. Gradwell dot com is therefore pleased to offer demonstrations from this week of a working OCS platform integrated with the Gradwell SIP Trunking and Hosted PBX products.

Gradwell has also announced new international and UK tariffs: unlimited calls, SIP and IAX trunking service.

Gradwell says, “These products are designed for businesses with up to 5 people, making up to 4,000 minutes of inclusive calls per month. They give gives a small business a known, fixed monthly fee for its calls and are suitable for any customer with its own onsite Asterisk server or SIP- based PBX.

There are two new tariff options available: UK Unlimited Trunk tariff – offering unlimited UK calls to 01, 02 and 03 numbers (subject to a fair use check at 4,000 minutes) and International Unlimited Trunk tariff – offering Unlimited International Calls to landlines (same fair use check applies) in the main 35 Western countries.”

Existing customers may re-grade, free of charge.
