nexMatrix Telecom, a company offering telephone systems and Contact Relationship Management applications, has announced the availability of Protel 2106, a premise PBX appliance.
The Protel 2106 supports 6 to 20 extensions and is projected for smaller offices that plan on growth and require new functionality. This new appliance accompanies 32 GB solid state drive and runs the same Protel operating system as all of the nexMatrix PBX products.
The Protel 2106 is backed by Intel processors and can be constituted to make use of the Automatic Call Distribution and call reporting features offered by nexMatrix.
Dianne Ursini, C.E.O. of nexMatrix, said that the new Protel 2106 is introduced as a substitute for Protel SOHO, and is planned to service small office deployments of fewer than 20 users.
“In preparation for the planned release of Protel Enterprise replacement in 2017, we are now offering a product that will take full advantage of Protel LTS, our interim feature-rich solution with full key system functionality. This paves the way to extend our current Protel PBX line for several more years,” Ursini said.
The appliance also supports multiple sites and remote extensions without complex connection protocols or VPNs. It also has built in key-system emulation feature that allows a call to be placed on hold and be picked up from any other extension. This feature is available on the 2106 for no extra charges.
Ursini also stated that the proprietary Protel PBX gives reseller partners an advantage over open-source products. “Our easy-to-use programming interface, coupled with knowledgeable and responsive technical support, give our Affiliates, Partners and VARS an incredibly versatile and robust PBX product that is proudly made in the U.S.A. that they can recommend confidently to their customers,” she added.
The company is currently offering the new Protel 2106 for a retail price starting at $1,049.95, and can be installed with virtually any IP phone hardware or softphone application, giving resellers maximum flexibility in meeting the needs of their customers.
