Critical Links, manufacturer of the egdeBOX Unified Communication product has officially approved business UK ITSP – VoIP Unlimited’s SIP trunks on their product. This approval coincides with the appointment of Manchester distributor, Gen-x IT as edgeBOX UK Distributor.
The edgeBOX appliance boasts an enterprise class business phone system (IP-PBX), with an array of supporting services including , Router, Stateful Inspection Firewall, Authentication, Email and Web Server, Print Server, File Server and Storage.
As 2010 is likely to see a continued demand from the UK SMB sector for new technologies that can deliver immediate cost and efficiency savings in a low cost, multi-service appliance, the edgeBOX is set fair to become “the right product for the right moment”, says Alan Gould, Gen-x IT’s Managing Director. “Critical’s software developments over the last decade have been second to none, with endorsements by NASA, and several European aerospace consortia. It is an impressive pedigree which has been distilled and integrated in to the DNA of their edgeBOX appliance. It is a multi-service, communication solution which can provide that competitive edge”.
The company says that from SOHO to 300 users, there’s an edgeBOX to suit. “The edgeBOX combined with VoIP Unlimited’s offer of ‘Unlimited’ SIP channels for £10.99 per month, makes for a strong value proposition.”
Steve Bieniek, VoIP Unlimited’s Sales Manager said, “With the interoperability testing phase now completed, we are looking forward to supporting the growing number of edgeBOX UK resellers. We share many ideals with Critical Links, with both product and SIP service providing efficiency savings by consolidating communications not just in line rentals, but now in hardware devices”. VoIP Unlimited is the first UK ITSP to gain interoperable approval by Critical Links.
Gen-X IT will be joining Critical Links on stand 29 at The Convergence Summit North event at Manchester Central on 16th & 17th March 2009 where delegates will get a chance to see a demonstration of the edgeBOX and talk to technical personnel from both Critical Links and Gen-X.
Viren Patel, Technical Services Manager of Gen-X IT said “We are looking forward to showcasing the edgeBOX at Convergence Summit North.
The event represents the first opportunity for the UC community to see the product at work and to talk with a product developer. In an increasingly competitive environment, the edgeBOX multi-service unit will prove to be a potent, profitable addition to any communication reseller’s service offering.”
