Quintum and Brekeke Announce a Joint IP-PBX Solution for Businesses and Service Providers
Quintum Technologies, an innovator in VoIP technologies and a subsidiary of Network Equipment Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: NWK), and Brekeke Software, Inc., developer and manufacturer of award-winning SIP communication technologies, announced today that it has completed interoperability testing of its Tenor VoIP MultiPath switches and gateways with Brekeke Software, Inc.'s IP-PBX, which is a highly scalable business IP phone system.
An award-winning product, Brekeke PBX is an SIP-based IP-PBX system that provides reliable and scalable IP communications for enterprises and service providers. The Brekeke PBX provides all essential IP-PBX features that enterprise users require, including voicemail to e-mail, "confirm call," and number portability. The newly introduced edition of Brekeke PBX, Multi-Tenant Edition, provides a simple and flexible yet easy to deploy solution for service providers that want to offer hosted IP-PBX services. Brekeke PBX supports both Windows and Linux platforms.
"Now, having Quintum and Brekeke as two key components of our portfolio for distribution to our resellers and customers, we have a 'perfect fit' combination for the channels to sell to their customers," said Ernesto Casas, General Manager for Binnacle Technologies, a value added distributor dedicated to VoIP in Latin America.
Following a recent deployment using Quintum gateways and a Brekeke PBX, Francisco Martin, CTO of Beyond En Linea, a client of Binnacle Technologies, said, "With the combination of Quintum and Brekeke, we were able to deploy advanced communications for all our employees regardless of where they are located, integrate our remote branch offices in Venezuela, and integrate users in key partner locations. We are going to take advantage of the survivability features of Quintum when combined with Brekeke for a 'non-stop' communications infrastructure."
"With Quintum's survivability feature, our users can now have continuous IP communication even when network disruptions occur," said Shin Yamade, CEO of Brekeke Software, Inc. "Our products are already known for their reliability and quality, but with support from network devices like Quintum's, we are able to offer the high availability our customers demand," continued Mr. Yamade. "With Quintum's Tenor, the combined solution gives users an unmatched, reliable IP communications platform," he concluded.
"Tenors address the more complicated and diverse needs of customers deploying new VoIP networks into existing legacy networks," said Chuck Rutledge, Vice President of Marketing for Quintum. "Partners such as Brekeke offer innovative VoIP products that when teamed with Tenors, offer productivity enhancements for the business, while assuring reliability and allowing customers to efficiently leverage the existing infrastructure in a cost effective manner."
Tenor VoIP switches and gateways offer a Unified Communications Proxy (UCP), which allows multiple VoIP and TDM networks to be easily integrated together. The UCP expands Tenor's MultiPath switching capability to include enhanced "Any to Any" MultiPath call routing, including TDM to TDM calls, TDM to SIP calls and SIP to SIP calls. The Quintum Tenor line features a variety of sizes and configurations to offer the perfect fit for any business VoIP infrastructure requirement.
