Edgewater Networks and VTech® Communications Deliver Full Product Line Interoperability to Make VoIP Simple and Affordable for Small/Medium Businesses

SAN JOSE, Calif.--()--Edgewater Networks, Inc. announced today that its EdgeMarc suite of Enterprise Session Border Controllers (ESBC) is fully interoperable with VTech’s ErisTerminal product line. Now, small and medium-sized businesses (SMB) who have been locked out of Voice over IP (VoIP) benefits in the past can enjoy the simplicity of set-up and access services immediately. Quality of Service (QoS), dramatically expanded features and security for voice calls are all reasons why thousands of SMBs have been switching to VoIP in recent years.

“VTech’s new ErisTerminal SIP phones have been designed to help businesses of all sizes enjoy the benefits of VoIP while moving away from traditional PBX to cloud-based solutions, without sacrificing mobility, price, reliability and usability,” said Graham Williams, Vice President of VTech’s Business Phone Division. “The goal of full interoperability has been to make the transition to VoIP as seamless as possible for SMBs, reducing the downtime and expense that have put deployments off in the past."

Why small and medium-sized businesses are making the call to switch to VoIP:

  • Lower cost phone calls using Skype-like technology, but secured for business communications
  • The flexibility to make VoIP calls anywhere there is an Internet connection
  • Opportunities to integrate communication processes like video and audio conferencing and fax through email

“Our EdgeMarc product line is a natural fit for VTech’s ErisTerminal,” said Dave Norman, Chief Executive Officer of Edgewater Networks, Inc. “As a result of our interoperability, VTech customers now have a true plug-and-play VoIP solution. We’re very happy that the industry is continuing to move in the direction of simplicity without sacrificing any of the communications capabilities.”
