Fonality Rolls Out Next Gen of Its trixbox Pro Appliance with Rockbochs and Sangoma
Feb 26, 2013 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) -- Fonality, a provider of business phone systems and contact center solutions dedicated to serving small and midsize businesses, announced the delivery of the next generation of its IP-PBX software solution, trixbox Pro.
According to a release, the new Fonality trixbox Pro Appliance by RockBochs is the first server to be certified by Fonality engineers on the new, upgraded CentOS 6.3 ISO and further expands the hardware options available to Fonality's channel partners.
The 2U rack-mount server comes in two versions: a 4 GB unit with an Intel 2.6 Ghz dual-core processor, and a 6 GB version with an Intel Xenon 3.0 Ghz quad-core processor. Both come with a one-year warranty and are custom built to support small and midsize business needs and growth.
"The new trixbox Pro Appliance by RockBochs gives our partners the very latest certified hardware to source," said David Scult, CEO of Fonality. "Like the trixbox Pro solution itself, this appliance is unique in nature and optimized specifically for the trixbox Pro software. It's fun, quirky, and provides a cult-following experience that will be easily recognized sitting in a rack." RockBochs Inc., which is responsible for the server itself, is a worldwide provider of Linux and FreeBSD hardware appliances and consulting services. RockBochs serves organizations of all sizes, from small businesses to enterprise.
"We were thrilled to bring the power of Sangoma and the great Fonality experience to market in these solid appliances," said Chad Behling, president of RockBochs. "Based on early feedback from our channels, we believe Fonality has a winning solution." Sangoma Technologies Corp., the exclusive provider of the server's telephony components, is a provider of hardware and software components that enable and enhance IP communications systems for both telecom and datacom appliances.
"OEM partners like Fonality expect the best product quality available and value a partner who knows how to work with OEM customers," said Doug Vilim, vice president of Worldwide Sales at Sangoma. "Sangoma has been part of the trixbox community since the project started. We are especially proud of this ongoing relationship with Fonality and that they have chosen to make us the de facto standard interface provider for trixbox Pro." Fonality's trixbox Pro is an IP-PBX software solution purpose built to support small and midsize businesses. Exclusive to Fonality's channel business, trixbox Pro features a hybrid hosted telephony solution, providing the reliability of an on-premise solution with the flexibility of a hosted solution. While there will be only one trixbox Pro appliance, other hardware solutions are certified by Fonality with the new upgraded ISO, specifically Dell's XE, PowerEdge R320 and PowerEdge R620 offerings. Partners attempting to install the new trixbox Pro on an uncertified server can seek to have that server certified using Fonality's Partner Hardware Feedback Form at
