Gentek to distribute Digium's Asterisk telephony and Switchvox UC solutions

Dec 10, 2012 (Datamonitor via COMTEX) -- Digium, Inc., a developer of open source communications software, and Gentek, a distributor of broadband products and solutions, have announced that Gentek will distribute Digium's Asterisk telephony, Switchvox Unified Communications, or UC, solutions and Digium IP phones to its resellers.


Gentek will distribute Digium's full range of Switchvox UC and Asterisk VoIP products, including IP phones and gateways, redundancy appliances and telephony cards certified for Asterisk installations. Digium has designed these products to ensure greater reliability and interoperability for Asterisk custom communications.

Gentek will distribute Digium's Switchvox solution, the UC phone system for SMBs. Switchvox solutions, based on open source Asterisk, provide a solution by combining many products into one. Switchvox integrates phone, fax, chat, web mashups and mobile communications, offering a better business phone system with more features than proprietary systems, Digium said.

"We are continuously searching for innovative products that match the needs of resellers who are servicing the growing SMB market," said Jeffrey Freedman, vice president of sales for Gentek. "The Switchvox UC solution is an excellent fit for customers who require a feature-rich phone system that provides outstanding value. Gentek has formed very strong relationships with our manufacturing partners and we expect our partnership with Digium to be extremely successful. We believe that Digium's forward-thinking product lines and our expertise within the SMB market are a perfect combination. Together, we will be able to provide an excellent solution to enable our resellers to capitalize on the growth in the UC and VoIP markets." http://www.datamonitor.com Republication or redistribution, including by framing or similar means, is expressly prohibited without prior written consent.
