Seattle, WA (PRWEB) January 18, 2012
VOIP Connections, a Seattle based premier ‘Voice Over IP’ service provider, facilitates small and medium sized businesses to move their telephony needs on to the Cloud and thereby eliminating the need for expensive telephone exchange (EPBAX) hardware. Now, in addition to hosting virtual telephone exchange on the Cloud, VOIP Connections also supports ‘on premise’ or hosted Microsoft Lync® 2010 using their ‘Mediation Gateway’ product.
Microsoft Lync® 2010 requires PSTN connectivity for inbound and outbound calls and also for Conference Bridge support. In order to provide PSTN connectivity to Lync, companies need to buy expensive hardware from leading telecommunication providers and also costly PRI lines. VOIP Connections ‘Mediation Gateway’ eliminates the need for expensive hardware and costly PRI lines. Mediation Gateway connects Lync’s Mediation Server to VOIP Connections hosted system via an IP based solution. Mediation Gateway can be installed and configured on any server grade hardware and resides in the same environment as Microsoft Lync system.
“Local DID number for Conference Bridge is a great way to reduce telecommunication costs. And we can provide DID numbers for majority of cities all over the World and that is a key differentiating factor’ announced Prashant Kurane, Mediation Gateway Product Manager. For the Conference Bridge dial-in users, Lync requires DID numbers. Customers prefer local DID number because it eliminates long distance charges. VOIP Connections can provide DID numbers for major cities all over the world and thereby eliminating long distance charges for the callers.
Regarding Customers for ‘Mediation Gateway’, Ojasvi Sinha, Director Services said that “As we speak, we already have a customer using ‘Mediation Gateway’ in their production environment and two other customers, field testing Mediation Gateway. One of them is using Amazon AWS as their Lync environment”
