ZYCOO to Manufacture IP-PBXs and Gateways for Distributor Customers
Chinese IP-PBX and IP telephony device manufacturer ZYCOO aims to be a full-service shop for its distributor customers. The company’s bread and butter is a line of VoIP solutions designed to meet the needs of anywhere from 10 to 500 users, with scalability from three to 80 simultaneous calls. With a global distribution reach of more than 90 countries, ZYCOO is now focused on expanding its product line and enhancing its current offerings.
Paula Bernier, executive editor at TMC, spoke to ZYCOO Sales Manager Amanda Liu at the recent ITEXPO Florida 2016 event about the company’s plans moving forward. Liu stressed that ZYCOO has been focused on improving the performance of its products, incorporating the more powerful ARM A7 CPU along with bigger storage and increased RAM to soup up performance.
Last month, ZYCOO launched its CooVox-U20 and U50 V2 IP-PBXs with the new components as an expansion of its existing CooVox series. The new versions also feature Asterisk 13, enabling a variety of real-time communications features like WebRTC as well as enhanced security. The company has already sold more than 1,000 units of the enhanced versions.
In December, ZYCOO rolled out an updated version of its UC Series IP Office for SOHO. The enhanced offering is designed for improved functionality with increased stability and a more user-friendly interface. The solution is also the most compact device produced by ZYCOO and geared toward SOHO environments, offering both IP-PBX and WiFi router functionality.
“In the middle of this year we’re going to release gateways,” said Liu of ZYCOO’s upcoming plans. “Currently, many of our customers ask for gateways.” She said the new products will be released some time in the middle of the year as a response to demand from distributors, which prefer to source from a single manufacturer for their IP-PBXs and gateways.
