Net Quintum VoIP Gateways Achieve Certification for Microsoft Exchange Unified Messaging
November 20, 2008
NET Quintum has completed Microsoft certification for Microsoft Exchange Unified Messaging for both the VX and Tenor lines of VoIP switches and gateways, according to the company.
The successful certification for the New Jersey-based company confirms what NET Quintum executives have long touted: there ability to easily integrate a customer’s existing voice infrastructure with Exchange Unified Messaging.
The completion of the Exchange Unified Messaging certification complements the existing certification for Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007, according to Ankur Kothari, technical product manager of Microsoft Exchange Unified Messaging.
“We are very pleased to have NET Quintum achieve Exchange Unified Messaging certification as part of our Unified Communications Open Interoperability Program,” said Ankur Kothari, technical Product Manager, Microsoft Exchange Unified Messaging. “Both the VX and Tenor product lines moved smoothly through the process and we are pleased about their support of Microsoft unified communications technologies.”
The advantages of deploying the VX and Tenor lines of MultiPath VoIP switches and gateways are many fold. For starters the ability for customers to consolidate their existing messaging infrastructure – including voice mail, email servers and fax servers – into one new system is often a key selling point for the systems.
The ability to simplify the customer’s path to unified communications, greatly simplifies the overall user experience and management of the messaging infrastructure, and results in significant cost savings.
“The certification for Exchange Unified Messaging gives our customers and partners’ confidence that the VX and Tenor product lines provide a seamless solution for both Office Communications Server 2007 and Microsoft Exchange Server 2007,” said Chuck Rutledge, vice president of Marketing for NET Quintum.
In addition, the VX and Tenor line of products feature “any to any” switching, not traditionally found in VoIP gateways designed to provide intelligent connectivity of TDM and SIP-based equipment with minimal changes to the existing network. And but making minimal changes to the network it simplifies the deployment of Microsoft unified communications technologies into existing voice and PBX environments.
“As a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner, we have developed an extensive knowledge base to support Microsoft’s unified communications technologies,” said Rutledge.
