Virtual PBX Reduces International Dialing Rates by as Much as 80 Percent

SAN JOSE, CA — (Marketwire) — 12/06/11 — Virtual PBX , inventor and leading supplier of hosted PBX services, announced today that it is reducing the cost of international calling in all of its plans by up to 80 percent. With this change, calls to multiple international locations — such as land lines in London and Buenos Aires, and mobile phones in Hong Kong — are as low as 1.9 cents per minute. The new rates are available now with no added fees or plan changes to all existing and new Virtual PBX customers on all plans.

“Virtual PBX is always working to find ways to save money for our customers,” said Paul Hammond, CEO of Virtual PBX. “We already offer local numbers in over 40 countries for clients that want an international presence and want their callers to avoid the high costs of international dialing. Now we’ve made it possible for our customers to call out to international destinations with very low costs as well.”


The new international rates build on the company’s extensive history of providing cost-effective voice services to reach and receive vital business calls to and from locations around the world.

Virtual PBX, a U.S.-based company, started offering outbound dialing to international destinations when it developed the first hosted PBX in 1996. Now, clients can make calls out to international numbers or have employees receive calls on non-U.S. phones with a much lower rate per minute. And using the company’s Open Systems Initiative, calls can be routed to VoIP phones anywhere, for free.

In December 2009, Virtual PBX started offering local inbound numbers to their clients in thousands of cities worldwide, providing clients the ability to publish local numbers in these cities while maintaining business operations in the location of their choice. The combination of low outbound rates to international phone numbers, free VoIP calling anywhere, and local inbound numbers in both the U.S. and other countries makes Virtual PBX a strong hosted PBX choice for companies with personnel, clients or business activities in almost any global location.

Specific rate information can be found on the company’s website.

Latest Telepresence and Visual Collaboration News:

ClearOne_chart

SALT LAKE CITY, Oct. 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — ClearOne CLRO, +7.40% a global provider of audio and visual communication solutions announced today the launch of its New ClearOne Connections Partner Program. With the rapid emergence of personal video capabilities among Internet connected desktops and mobile devices, coupled with the increasing demand for traditional video-conferencing capabilities; unrivaled opportunities abound for service providers and telecom agents selling voice, wireless, data, and cloud services to win in the growing any-to-any ubiquitous video conferencing service market.

Aimed at businesses of any size, ClearOne’s Spontania is an easier, more elastic and more affordable way to collaborate using voice, video and content. The Spontania cloud-based service empowers customers to deploy HD video conferencing, web collaboration, and more with equipment most businesses have and use every day – video conferencing endpoints, desktops, laptops, web browsers, tablets, and smartphones. With Spontania there is no hardware investment and the service operates off of a reservation-less model, enabling on-demand video communications from anywhere, anytime, with anyone on any device.

ClearOne Connections Partner Program Consists of Two Models:

ClearOne’s White Label Channel Program: With the telecom and IT channels convergence, ClearOne’s White Label Program is designed for partners targeting different vertical markets to sell and support services under their brand with a scalable cost effective, future proof SaaS solution, without the infrastructure complexities and associated cost.

The program targets VoIP Service Providers who offer internet telephony, IP-PBX solutions and unified communication services, Interconnect Companies who are system integrators selling, installing and supporting voice hardware/telephone systems, and Managed Service Providers who are service delivery focused partners that provide delivery and management of network-based services, applications, and equipment.

“Owning the customer means our partners can offer video conferencing and collaboration solutions under their brand, set price points based on customer requirements, and bill customers directly, thereby increasing value and average revenue per user. The ClearOne White Label Program offering is targeted at small to mid-size service providers with existing customer bases who prefer to focus on selling services rather than managing the operational complexities” says Kent Terpe, ClearOne Indirect Channel Consultant.

ClearOne’s Agent Program: ClearOne’s agent program is designed to jump start a traditional telecom agent’s entry into the rapidly growing cloud, desktop and mobile communication markets. Agents sell a vast portfolio of telecom products and services (local, long distance, Internet access, VoIP, Ethernet, etc.) from many telecommunication companies and have become a trusted advisor to the business community.

According to Kent Terpe, “The ClearOne Agent Program will be a game changer, as the telecom agent channel looks to differentiate their solutions, strengthen customer relationships and grow revenue. ClearOne gives businesses of any size everything they need, positioning our partners to win more deals by offering the most affordable and best-in-class cloud-based video conferencing collaboration solution. And to boost business interest and confidence, agents are invited to participate in ClearOne’s Experience Spontania – Try Buy Program.”

Patton's Compact 168-Mbps Ethernet Extender Now Shipping

GAITHERSBURG, Md.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–

Patton Electronics—US-manufacturer of award-winning CopperLink™ Ethernet Extenders, SmartNode™ VoIP solutions, and BODI rS™ high-availability fixed mobile routers—announced today the new, compact, US-manufactured CopperLink™ CL1212 ultra-high-speed copper Ethernet Extender series is now shipping and generally available.

Delivering downstream speeds up to 168 Mbps, Patton’s tiny dual-port CopperLink™ CL1212 leverages existing common copper cabling to transport such bandwidth-intensive applications as large file transfers, data backhaul, IP telephony, streaming music and IP video.

Extending Ethernet up to 10,000 feet (3 kilometers) over a single twisted pair, the CopperLink™ CL1212 eliminates the expense and delay of replacing installed cabling when inter-connecting IP-enabled devices and network services.

“Our newest CopperLink is a testament to our never-ending pursuit of complete customer satisfaction,” said Johnnie Grant, CopperLink™ product manager. “While the CL1212 offers higher speeds and feature enhancements, our primary focus was delivering the compact form factor our customers know and appreciate.”

Measuring just 3 x 4 x 1.5 inches, the CL1212 installs easily into very small spaces.

“For OEM business partners and other special-order customers, we’re offering the CL1212—and the CL1211, a single-port variant—as a printed circuit board (PCB) kit,” Mr. Grant added.

The CL1212’s integrated two-port Ethernet switch can aggregate IP traffic from two sources (IP-video camera, VoIP-enabled intercom, VoIP phones, IP-PBX, file servers, PCs, etc.) for simultaneous transmission over a single Ethernet connection.

The CL1212 offers three user-configured line-rate modes: long-range asymmetrical, high-speed asymmetrical, or high-speed symmetrical. Combined with Patton’s auto-rate adaptation feature, the selection of three line-rate modes ensures maximum achievable speed-distance combination for the application, installed noise environment, wire gauge and wire type.

Symmetrical settings are ideal for such applications as remote LAN extension, video teleconferencing, and data backhaul.

Asymmetrical configurations are well-suited for scenarios requiring ultra-high downstream speeds and/or extra-long distances: including medical imaging, livestock monitoring, underwater video, internet gaming, and high-resolution video from security cameras.

Last week Patton announced the SmartNode Open Gateway Appliance that opens SmartNode VoIP gateways to software developers of Linux and Windows-based network appliances for Unified Communications and VoIP IP-PBX products.

Hosted PBX boosts operations

A hosted PBX solution allows users the freedom to work from anywhere, says founder and CEO of WhichVoIP.co.za.

A hosted PBX solution allows users the freedom to work from anywhere, says founder and CEO of WhichVoIP.co.za.

Hosted private branch exchange (PBX) holds a myriad benefits for companies; not just financially, but operationally as well.

So says Mitchell Barker, founder and CEO of WhichVoIP.co.za, a directory Web site containing a list of SA’s top voice over Internet protocol (VOIP) and hosted PBX providers.

Companies are increasingly turning towards the cloud – the umbrella term used to describe Internet-based computing where data, software or applications are run and stored online instead of on the user’s machine or housed elsewhere on site. It is therefore small wonder an enterprise-grade phone system that also utilises cloud-based technology is being enthusiastically embraced as well, Barker says.

A recent study by Infonetics Research found hosted PBX and unified communications services are a growth market which has moved well beyond early stages, with revenue on track to grow 13% this year, and positive activity in every major geographic region.

“While sales of premises-based PBX systems have been stagnant to declining over the past few years, the market for cloud services continues to expand, with businesses worldwide seeking out hosted alternatives,” says Diane Myers, principal analyst for VOIP, UC and IMS at Infonetics Research. “Hosted services seats grew more than 20% worldwide in 2013,” she adds.

A PBX is a telephone system within a company. It switches calls between internal users on local lines while allowing all users to share a certain number of external lines in order to minimise cost, Barker explains.

Although many PBX systems were set up before the advent of VOIP, many are now implementing VOIP services to provide the same cost-saving benefits and slash major amounts from users’ phone bills, he points out.

DuPont Telecom CEO, Graeme Victor, says South African businesses are rapidly switching on to the benefits of a hosted PBX environment, with several organisations having already adopted the new technology that takes VOIP to the next level.

From an operational standpoint, having hosted PBX could not be simpler, Barker says. “Since it is hosted off-site, you don’t have to worry about having space for it or caring for and maintaining the expensive and bulky equipment – which is so large and sensitive, it often requires a dedicated, temperature-controlled server room to house it – or fixing it when it breaks,” he adds.

“Also, since it is virtually hosted, and can be accessed from anywhere, it allows users the freedom to work from anywhere and port their numbers with them – it is as simple as unplugging the laptop or desktop and moving it to the new office. Another major benefit is it can be easily managed from a desktop portal, with a user-friendly interface all staff can easily be taught to use.”

Voip-Pal.com Board of Directors Unanimously Passes Resolution to Freeze the Transfer of Approximately 100 Million …

BELLEVUE, Wash.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–

Voip-Pal.com Inc. (“Voip-Pal”, “Company”) (OTC Pink: VPLM) announced today that the Board of Directors has unanimously passed a resolution to freeze any transfer of approximately 100,000,000 shares issued in 2013 to Locksmith Financial Corporation (“Locksmith”), pending the outcome of a recently conducted regulatory investigation. The current holders of these stocks include Locksmith, Talisman Financial Inc., VHB International Ltd., and Cactus Ventures, Inc.

Earlier this year, while an independent accounting firm was conducting an internal audit, the Company discovered that the shares in question, which had been issued for the settlement of debt, lacked proper documentation and sufficient proof of debt. After several unsuccessful attempts to secure the documentation from Locksmith, the Company referred the case to the proper regulatory agencies.

An investigation was conducted with Voip-Pal’s full cooperation. Voip-Pal is currently awaiting the outcome of that investigation. By promptly reporting this alleged improper share issuance to the appropriate authorities, Voip-Pal has assured that its shareholders are protected. Company director, Dr. Thomas Sawyer who initiated this investigation on behalf of Voip-Pal and its shareholders will continue to interface with regulatory agency representatives and oversee this matter to its conclusion.

In the event the investigation proves the shares in question were issued improperly, Voip-Pal will take immediate action to cancel and return them to the Company treasury resulting in a significant reduction of the total outstanding shares. Consequently, the newly reduced outstanding shares total will automatically trigger an additional reduction of approximately 41,000,000 more shares currently held by CEO, Emil Malak. This will lower the total issued shares by approximately 140,000,000 resulting in a significant increase in shareholder value.

About Voip-Pal.com Inc.

Voip-Pal.Com, Inc. (“Voip-Pal”) is a publicly traded corporation (OTC Pink: VPLM) headquartered in Bellevue, Washington. The Company owns a portfolio of patents relating to Voice-over-Internet Protocol (“VoIP”) technology that it is currently looking to monetize.

Hosted PBX cuts costs, operational strain – IT

Companies are increasingly turning towards the cloud – the umbrella term used to describe Internet-based computing where data, software, or applications are run and stored online instead of on the user’s machine itself or housed elsewhere on site.
It is therefore small wonder that an enterprise-grade phone system that also utilises cloud-based technology is being enthusiastically embraced as well.

According to a survey that was conducted by telecoms market research firm Infonetics, the hosted private branch exchange (PBX) – which is the aforementioned cloud-based, enterprise-grade phone system – and the unified communications (UC) services market will reach $12 billion by 2018, at a projected growth rate of 13% in 2014.

PBX is a miniature telephone network set to work within a company as an in-house telephone system used to interconnect both internal and external telephone networks and extensions in order to minimise cost. Although many PBX systems were set up before the advent of VoIP, many PBX systems are now implementing VoIP services, in order to provide the same cost saving benefits and slash major amounts from users’ phone bills.

“Indeed, the results of the Infonetics survey also indicate that there is a definite shift towards the convergence of data and voice networks,” says Mitchell Barker, founder and CEO of WhichVoIP.co.za, a directory website containing a comprehensive list of South Africa’s top Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) and hosted PBX providers. “

The Infonetics Research has shown that, while sales of premises-based PBX systems have been stagnant or even declining worldwide over the past few years, hosted PBX services grew by more than 20% worldwide in 2013.”

Barker says this upward trajectory is unsurprising, because hosted PBX holds a myriad of benefits for companies: not just financially, but operationally as well. “From a financial standpoint, the cost saving benefits that your company will reap from this will be almost immediately palpable,” he explains. “For one, since the system is hosted in the cloud, equipment installation – and the initial, often prohibitive costs and headaches associated with that – are instantly eliminated.”

From an operational standpoint, having hosted PBX could not be more simple, Barker says. “Since it is hosted off-site, that means that you don’t have to worry about having room for it or caring for and maintaining the expensive and bulky equipment – which is so large and sensitive, it often requires a dedicated, temperature controlled server room to house it in – or fixing it when it breaks,” he adds.

“Also, since it is virtually hosted, and can be accessed from anywhere, it allows users the freedom to work from anywhere and port their numbers with them – it is as simple as unplugging the laptop or desktop and moving it to the new office. Another major benefit is that it can be easily managed from a desktop portal, with a user-friendly interface that all staff will easily be taught to use.”

Speaking of staff, Barker says that is another operational benefit of having hosted PBX. “Most small-to-medium sized businesses (SMBs) do not have the capital for large IT departments where they can have trained technicians on staff to take care of the expensive PBX equipment,” he says. “But since the equipment is not even hosted on your site, it means that you don’t have to waste time having to wait for technicians to come out to you either. With hosted PBX, they have round-the-clock troubleshooting to maintain and fix the equipment to ensure that everything keeps running smoothly.”

VoIP and hosted PBX provider, BitCo, concur with Barker. BitCo’s Marketing Manager, Deidre Jonker, “In addition to the advantages already stated, clients who opt for a hosted PBX solution also benefit by decreasing their risk and taking advantage of their supplier’s (often costly) datacentre solutions.” Jonker concisely summates that hosted PBX is certainly a no-brainer for start-up or Small Business owners.

In conclusion, Barker says, the main operational benefit of hosted PBX is therefore, hands down, how low maintenance it is for the companies that make use of it.
