SAN JOSE, Calif. - (BUSINESS WIRE) - Virtual PBX announced today that Network Products Guide, the industry's leading publication on information technologies and solutions, has honored the company's Open VoIP Peering solution with a 2009 Product Innovation Award. This annual award recognizes vendors from all over the world who create ground-breaking products that bring essential and incremental changes that benefit customers and set the bar higher for others who compete in the IT industry.

Virtual PBX is the first hosted PBX company to offer an Open VoIP Peering option, which is ideal for users who already have VoIP phones or want to reap the cost benefits of moving to VoIP without being limited to proprietary, single-vendor solutions. The service opens up greater opportunities for businesses that need the flexibility to mix-and-match a VoIP network with any SIP-compliant phone. This truly "blended" service gives businesses unprecedented flexibility as they can choose to use a VoIP network for cost savings or standard phone lines for better call quality. Open VoIP Peering provides the "make or break" difference needed in today's challenging economic times.
