Avaya IP Office 500

Aimed at SMBs, this compact and modular communications server supports telephony, voice messaging, and a complete customer service suite. Together with recently launched IP Office software, it allows users to buy what they need today, while easily adding users or functionality later down the track via software licenses. The IP Office 500 Series is powered by Standard and Professional editions of new IP Office Release 4.0 software. It acts as a SIP gateway, whether the SMB has digital, analogue or IP phones. Businesses can subscribe to new SIP trunking services and significantly reduce calling costs. The product also introduces remote diagnostic tools. It adds new multi-site hot-desking capabilities so employees can log into any digital, analogue or IP phone at any of their company's networked locations and have calls and voice messages follow them. There's also multi-site hunt group capabilities so workers at any networked location can be part of the same call routing group.

Netgear DG834GV

The DG834GV incorporates an ADSL2+ modem, router, 10/100 wired LAN switch, 802.11g wireless access point and SPI double firewall and two VoIP ports (FXS) with a failover port (FXO), giving users an all-in-one integrated voice gateway. The modem provides a fast Internet connection to enable the same voice quality as a normal phone call, while the wireless router allows users to roam with their handset while making calls. The speed of the gateway ensures users can download large files with ease, conduct a videoconference, and play and distribute high-definition digital movies, photos and MP3s instantly. Creating a wireless network with broadband frees up staff to send emails, access files and research on the Internet from anywhere in the office. It is easily configured with an online VoIP Wizard which escorts the user through setup for their chosen voice provider, vastly simplifying installation.

NetComm SmartVoice Gateway

NetComm's VoIP devices are designed to integrate with an existing analogue PBX. All users require is a broadband Internet connection and an account with an Internet telephony provider. SmartVoice provides an easy way to add cost saving VoIP technology without the need to replace the entire phone system. The gateways are transparent to users. If the broadband or Internet telephony service is experiencing problems, phones simply fall back to standard PSTN functionality. This will not compromise the user's ability to make and receive phone calls. The gateways have a built-in phone book, which can register up to 100 extensions; four port LAN for sharing Internet connection; support call waiting; call hold and call transfer. The call routing table provides least cost routing, support for T.38 fax over IP and call hunting for IP calls to ensure the call coming in finds a free line in the office via the PBX. Smart-Voice gateways are available as V440 (4FSX), V422 (2FXS/2FXO) and V431 (3FXS/1FXO) and V880 (8FXS).
