eOn Communications Announces Availability of eConn IP-PBX

Updated: January 06, 2011

SAN JOSE, Calif., Sept. 30 /PRNewswire/ -- eOn Communications Corporation, (NASDAQ: EONC), a leading provider of innovative telecommunications solutions, announced today the formal launch and general availability of our next generation communications platform the eConn IP-PBX. The eConn IP-PBX is a Voice over IP (VoIP) system that provides organizations with a highly scalable, feature-rich communications system designed to support 10 to 1,000 users. Utilizing commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) hardware and Linux CentOS, the system provides teleworking functionality, conferencing and collaboration, automatic call distribution, wireless capabilities, and more.

The eConn supports over 500 telephony features - a key differentiator between the eConn and other competitive products. The system's strength and stability comes from an inherent telephony feature set ported from our awarding-winning Millennium® and eQueue® communications platforms.

The eConn can cluster multiple systems and IP devices together over IP or TDM based infrastructures providing greater resiliency than a single server operating autonomously. Additionally, the eConn supports an IP-Q.SIG protocol to provide feature transparency and interoperability as an IP gateway for existing Millennium, eQueue and traditional PBX systems.

Enterprises are looking at new ways to increase business revenues while reducing the cost of their communications solutions," said Robert Schnabl, COO of eOn. "It is this demand that led us to develop the eConn IP-PBX to provide businesses with features and flexible configurations that make communicating with customers and colleagues easier and less expensive, no matter whether they are located in a corporate HQ, a branch office or remote location half way around the world."

Architecture

System architecture is based on Host-based Media Processing (HMP), a new design model in telecommunications that involves the use of software solutions to perform voice processing functions, instead of dedicated Digital Signal Processors (DSP). HMP provides non-blocking communications between industry-standard Ethernet LAN/WAN connections and Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) stations and trunks.

Administration

The system's enterprise management suite provides system, network and real time management tools that increase productivity, simplify management tasks and ensure maximum network efficiency. These new tools introduce graphical views of IP and TDM port assignments, devices and user privileges, network monitoring, and real-time notification of system alarms and call management reports.

Unified Communications

The eConn is tightly integrated with eOn's IP Messenger, an all-in-one Unified Communications platform that provides unified messaging, fax messaging, wireless connectivity, CTI call control, one number Find Me functionality, Web access, instant messaging, conferencing, speech recognition, and text-to-speech for e-mail reading. Users will be able to access, manage and respond to any kind of message (voice, fax or e-mail), using any device (phone, PC, web or PDA), from anywhere – at anytime.

SIP Telephones

The eConn supports a wide range of desktop devices, including entry-level IP phones, executive-style IP phones, wireless handsets (WiFi or IP DECT), full-duplex audio conference units, analog telephones, softphones and other devices. The eConn release introduces the innovative Cortelco 7100 Series IP Telephones, which support the open SIP standard and are fully compatible with the eConn. The 7100 series models are equipped with the TI TITAN chipset and TI Voice Engine, offering high definition voice, a broad range of codecs, security protection and rich features including PoE, PnP Auto-Provisioning, soft keys, XML phonebook and more.

"The 7100 Series IP Telephones provide a comprehensive feature set and excellent price points to make our combined solution a great value to our channel partners and customers," stated Stephen Swartz, Vice President of Sales for eOn.
