Junction Networks breaks the mold on hosted VoIP with removal of per-seat pricing on newly released Hosted PBX. New suite of business VoIP services is 100% SIP address based.

We have worked hard to build on completely open standards including SIP

January 2, 2007 -- Building on the momentum of its PSTN Gateway offering, Junction Networks today officially announced the release of its Hosted PBX service and SIP For Business services. These new services break the mold of per-seat pricing by offering an unlimited number of users for Hosted PBX services. Additionally, the SIP For Business service allows free SIP calls with business-class PBX features.

Now, businesses of all sizes can get free SIP calling along with free extension dialing and free customized SIP addresses. For additional fees, customers can add services such as voice mailboxes, pstn calling and auto-attendants. The platform is entirely SIP Address based so customers are free to use any SIP client IP phones including SNOM, Polycom, Eyebeam and Grandstream phones.

"With no per user fees for the service, this is a first of its kind" said Michael Oeth, CEO. "A company with 10 users can now get a fully functional virtual PBX with voicemail, auto-attendant and hunt groups for about $50 a month plus minutes. The competition is still charging north of $50 per user for 'unlimited' minutes that often go unused."

The company is focused on value added features beyond the standard PBX set. For example, customers can add a popular CRM feature called Click-to-Call which allows customers to add a button to their website and give visitors the ability to receive an immediate phone call from the Junction Networks customer. The service then notifies the Junction Networks customer that a call has been requested and the website visitor and Junction Networks customer are immediately connected. Click-to-Call is free to all Hosted PBX customers.

"We have worked hard to build on completely open standards including SIP" stated John Riordan, CTO. "As a result, we can add features such as a Click-to-Call at a fraction of the price charged by competitors. Additionally, our standards-based API allows anyone to fully integrate their offering into our product."

As always, Junction Networks requires no commitments to use the service.    "Customers can sign up and use the service for 1 day or 1 year and feel free to close their account if they are not satisfied," stated Robert Wolpov. "We are confident that customers will be amazed at the value they get for our industry low pricing."

The Hosted PBX bundle is free for 30 days. Customers are free to try the service and cancel at any time with no penalty. The service can be used with any SIP compatible IP phone or software phone.
