Richardson, TX and St. Louis, MO –  Samsung  Business Communication Systems (BCS) and Voxitas  announced a joint marketing agreement that combines the Samsung OfficeServ 7000 Series of converged telecommunications platforms with Voxitas SIP trunking services to provide small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) with cost-effective, Internet-based, telephony solutions. The recently completed interoperability certification between Voxitas SIP Trunking and the Samsung OfficeServ 7000 Series offers Samsung customers worry-free, enterprise-level telephony service with up to 70 percent cost savings over traditional telephone services.

While there is a growing trend toward Internet-based telephony solutions, small and medium-sized businesses are struggling with convergence and managing interoperability issues. The combination of Samsung OfficeServ 7000 Series convergence platforms and Voxitas SIP trunking allows the seamless integration of digital and analog phone sets; computers and servers; mobile communications devices; and peripherals into a single system that offers the functionality and security of an enterprise-level system along with the cost savings of SIP trunking.

“SMBs are increasingly interested in SIP trunking to help reduce monthly telecom costs,” said Bart Kohnhorst, Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Samsung BCS. “Voxitas SIP trunking offers Samsung dealers and customers a certified option to reduce or eliminate traditional trunk line costs with the assurance of equipment compatibility and reliable service.” 

“We are pleased to team with Samsung in delivering a full-service, Internet-based, telecommunications option for small to mid-sized businesses across the United States. The combined strengths of the Samsung OfficeServ 7000 family of products and our telecommunications services is a win-win for customers and dealers alike,” said Matt Siemens, Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Voxitas. “Together we can simultaneously reduce telecom costs and increase efficiency for small and mid-sized businesses. In a time when every dollar counts, this combination can help businesses control telecom costs while meeting their expanding communication needs.”

The interoperability certification is based on rigorous testing including: bench testing to ensure proper SIP trunk connectivity and quality; testing in the field with actual business users over Voxitas SIP trunks; and implementation of a "general availability" environment using Voxitas SIP trunks.
