Agilis Replace Proprietary Obsolete IP System with Open Standard 3CX Phone System and Yealink IP Phone
London, February 24 - 3CX, developer of the popular Windows softphone 3CXPhone and VoIP PBX 3CX Phone System, today announced it has implemented the 3CX Phone System and Yealink IP Phone in the offices of gas turbine specialist, Agilis.
Agilis was happy to turn to the Windows-based 3CX Phone System, as it knew it could serve the needs of the various office locations, was cost effective and a simple to operate PBX. Unified Communications features would assist in the increase in productivity levels throughout the entire company. As Agilis make use of remote workers, this key support staff would always need to be accessible, with the new phone system being able to deliver remote access to any location and also all other Agilis office locations that are spread in two countries.
Based on the excellence of 3CX system, Agilis chose Yealink T26 & T28 IP Phone as coordinating terminal equipment. Yealink T26 and T28 IP Phone achieved very steady interoperability with 3CX system and offer very stable and excellence HD voice quality. The award-winning T2x Phone offer Agilis high quality with affordable price. The customized features specially designed for different type of staff meet need from every aspect of workers. Supporting Auto-provision via FTP/TFTP/HTTP/HTTPS ensures a very easy deployment and remote configuration to provide a desirable and cost-saving communication choice for mass deployment of Agilis staff communication network. Via seamlessly integration, 3CX system and Yealink Phones offered Agilis an efficient and liable way of business operation.
The new 3CX Phone System implementation would also have to make use of the two T1s via a VoIP gateway. Agilis selected the SmartNode 4960 from Patton Electronics to provide PSTN access via the two existing T1s. Supporting 90 concurrent VoIP calls, the SN4960 scales up to 120 calls with a simple software upgrade. In addition to VoIP-over-VPN security with IPsec-encrypted voice, AES/DES strong encryption and automated keying via Internet Key Exchange (IKE), Patton SmartNode provides dial-backup and IP-link redundancy for VoIP and data survivability. The Patton SmartNode 4960 gateway has been tested and is supported for use with the 3CX Phone System.
"Agilis is completely Windows based. Having a Windows based telephone system is a big advantage to us as our past experience with UNIX based Asterisk systems was just too difficult. We were in the market for a phone system that ran on Windows and that could be hosted on our existing equipment and integrated with our current IT infrastructure. The 3CX Phone System had and continues to have great reviews.” – Brian Dunn, Agilis.
Nick Galea, CEO at 3CX said: “Agilis provides technical innovation in an industry which depends so much on technology, reliability and accessibility. We’ve built reliability and Unified Communications into the core of 3CX which makes it an extremely accessible PBX.”
"Coordinating with 3CX to provide large enterprise like Agilis an efficient way of communication means much to us,” said Stone Lu, VP of Yealink, “Yealink is all the way striving to offer unified communication solution with effective Phones to simplify business operation to the utmost.”
