Launches "Extend Your Cisco Network" Campaign

“The Cisco Collaboration business unit together with Phybridge is helping customers modernize the base by seamlessly migrating analog/digital phones to Cisco IP phones using the PoLRE switch to replace PBX or Voice Gateways (VG),”

Today at Cisco Live, Cisco’s annual IT and communications conference, Phybridge announced the “extend your Cisco network” campaign launch. The objective of the campaign is to create awareness of the Power over Long Reach Ethernet (PoLRE) switch innovation that is helping Cisco customers migrate to an all IP platform eliminating risk, cost and complexity.

The PoLRE switch innovation offered by Cisco and Cisco partners delivers Ethernet and PoE over a single pair of wire with 4-four times the reach of traditional switches. PoLRE allows customers to extend their local area network and transform their existing voice infrastructure into an IP path with power that is ideal for Cisco IP phones.

Federal government agencies, large enterprise, education, retail and healthcare customers have extended their LAN with PoLRE and successfully migrated to an all IP platform. “An independent study by Nemertes Research Group Inc. showed that only 28% of companies have gone full IP,” said Steven Fair, EVP for Global Sales of Phybridge. “One of the main reasons is physical infrastructure challenges which will take a substantial amount of time and money to remediate. Cisco has created a part number for the PoLRE switch so customers can easily migrate to Cisco IP phones using existing telephony wiring.”

“The Cisco Collaboration business unit together with Phybridge is helping customers modernize the base by seamlessly migrating analog/digital phones to Cisco IP phones using the PoLRE switch to replace PBX or Voice Gateways (VG),” stated Richard Kasslack, VP for Strategic Accounts of Phybridge “Customers who participated in the independent study done by Nemertes showed that they saw saving from 80% up to 300% when they use Phybridge to upgrade their LAN.” More details about the study can be found at: http://www.extendyourLAN.com
