Digium® Switchvox unified communications solution wins top midmarket product award from Everything Channel’s CRN Magazine

Sydney, April 28, 2010 – Digium® Inc., the Asterisk® Company, announced that CRN Magazine, a part of the Everything Channel, has recognised its Switchvox® SMB AA355 Voice over IP (VoIP) unified communications (UC) solution as a Top Midmarket Product.

The Top Midmarket Product winners were selected through a nomination process from Everything Channel editorial, solution providers and chief information officers (CIOs) of midsize companies. The groups collectively nominated more than 10 products per category based on how well their technology fits a midsize enterprise, customer service and the technology vendor’s commitment to solution providers serving midmarket customers. For each category, a subset of the nominating group selected the winner and runner-up. All the winning products were approved by Everything Channel editorial.

The Switchvox SMB 355 is a rack mountable unified communications solution that gives small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) the ability to improve office communications at a price they can afford. It is designed for medium to large businesses that want an affordable, high performance, full featured IP PBX that supports 400 users and up to 75 concurrent calls. This system integrates enterprise-class features such as call queues, call recording, conferencing, chat, video and presence, all in a single system. It is easy to set up and manage with a Switchboard web interface, and it can be used with a company’s existing SIP telephones and hardware, resulting in lower costs than with a traditional business phone system.

“At Digium, we do most of our business through the channel, so recognition for one of our core products from Everything Channel is important to us,” said Danny Windham, CEO of Digium. “We believe this award acknowledges the combined success of Digium and our hundreds of partners. We’re proud of the strength of the Digium ecosystem and will continue to cultivate it and devote resources to its rapid growth to sell Switchvox UC solutions.”

Digium solutions are distributed exclusively by Wavelink Communications in Australia.
