Optimum Voice SIP Trunking Now Certified with Cisco Unified Communications 300 Series for Small Businesses

Bethpage, NY, Nov 29, 2012 (PRWeb.com via COMTEX) -- Cablevision Systems Corp. today announced that Optimum Voice(R) SIP Trunking is now certified with the Cisco(R) Unified Communications 300 Series for small businesses. The pre-certified solution delivers high-quality, reliable voice service for small businesses that want to take advantage of an Internet Protocol (IP) Private Branch Exchange (PBX) system while avoiding the costs of an analog gateway or traditional T-1 solution. Cisco equipment that has received interoperability certification for Optimum Voice SIP Trunking now includes Cisco UC320 as well as the Cisco UC500 series PBXs.


Optimum Voice SIP Trunking supplies VoIP access and key network-based telephony features to pre-certified IP-PBXs, simplifying configuration, reducing equipment costs for businesses, and improving the quality of voice service by providing an IP interface directly to the customer's LAN.

"With the certification of the Cisco UC320, we are extending availability of our next generation service to even our smallest customers that may require 10 to 20 telephone numbers but only need as little as four concurrent calling sessions." The Cisco UC320 is designed to support organizations with up to 24 employees, featuring business-class calling and messaging, as well as full key system and small private branch exchange (PBX) features. The system supports a wide choice of Cisco SPA Series IP phones, and includes integrated wireless networking.

"To remain competitive, most small businesses need a voice system that can help reduce phone costs and boost employee productivity," said Steve Slattery, vice president and general manager, Collaboration Infrastructure Technology Group, for Cisco. "Together with Optimum Voice SIP Trunking, the Cisco Unified Communications 320 for Small Businesses meets these needs. It was designed with the small business owner in mind, delivering reliable and business-class performance with an enhanced communications feature set at an affordable price."
