3Com VCX Connect
3Com VCX Connect solutions allow organisations with up to 250 phone users to replace their ageing PBXs with a standards-based communications system that integrates IP telephony and unified messaging applications onto a single platform. Support of a full range of 3Com IP phones, including a multimedia soft-phone, ensures high-quality audio and easy access to VCX Connect features. The vendor claims that the open standards approach offers users a reduced cost of ownership and increases investment protection. Numerous VoIP gateway options facilitate migration from PSTN to IP-based communications, allowing the continued use of legacy PBXs as needed to minimise business disruptions and align implementations with budget considerations. VCX Connect systems also support optional redundancy on critical components to increase resilience and further ensure business continuity.
