Gentek to Distribute Asterisk and Switchvox in Canada

November 27, 2012

Gentek’s Canadian customers can expect some new goodies this holiday season, as it will be releasing Digium’s Asterisk telephony, Switchvox (News - Alert) UC solutions, and Digium IP phones to its resellers. With 30 years of providing leading products to the small and mid-sized business markets, Gentek’s distribution of Digium (News - Alert) phones and solutions is good news.

Gentek will distribute the full range of Digium’s Switchvox UC and Asterisk VoIP Products, from IP phones to redundancy appliances. These products are built to provide Asterisk (News - Alert) custom communications with an even better reliability and interoperability, and enable partners to implement turnkey, unified communications solutions, or their own end-to-end VoIP solutions.

Digium’s award-winning Switchvox solution is a UC phone system made for SMBs. It combines products such as phone, fax, chat, and mobile communications into a single solution, offering an affordable business phone system with more features than many proprietary systems offer.

Asterisk, an open source software framework, transforms computers into communications servers. Developers and integrators can build communications applications with it, creating PBXs, call centers, conferencing servers, and more.

Both of these are now available to Gentek’s customers in Canada, and are sure to benefit from the capabilities they provide.

"We are continuously searching for innovative products that match the needs ofresellers who are servicing the growing SMB market," says Jeffrey Freedman, VP 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."

Digium’s Asterisk telephone and Switchvox UC solutions have a proven record of quality and affordability, making them a great choice for SMBs and SMEs.

As Gentek will be distributing them to its customers in Canada, they have a great opportunity, and I use “they” to refer to Digium, Gentek, and Gentek’s customers, as all can stand to benefit from this.

Digium is a Diamond sponsor of ITEXPO Miami 2013, taking place Jan. 29- Feb 1 in Miami, Florida. ITEXPO (News - Alert) is the world’s premier IP communications event. Visit Digium in booth #901. For more information on ITEXPO, click here.
