NextWest NextConnect Delivers PBX Features to Branch Locations without Installing a PBX

New Technology Enables Cost-Effective Deployment at Multiple Locations.

NextWest,NextWest NextConnect Delivers PBX Features to Branch Locations without Installing a PBX Articles Inc., the leading provider of IP-based business telecommunications and contact center systems, today introduced the latest addition to its PCXi IP-based PBX solution. Using a single trunk board, NextWest’s PCXi, with its newly introduced NextConnect architecture, provides 30 channel capacity for communications between headquarters and branch offices allowing businesses to implement branch locations without the high cost of installing separate PBX systems.

The PCXi system, already known for its powerful PBX functions, cost-effectiveness, reliability and ease of management, now brings enterprises the capability of incrementally adding up to 30 extensions to any remote branch location with full PBX features without installing a PBX at the remote location.

The NextConnect adapter converts 30-channel format to IP for low cost transport of calls between headquarters and branch locations, making affordable branch connectivity for smaller offices possible. Additionally, multiple sites can be connected with a three digit dialing plan, taking advantage of the lower costs of VoIP (voice over IP).VoIP capability is further enhanced by NextConnect support of both traditional and IP phones.

“We make it possible for enterprises to build their phone systems around their business, rather than their business around their phone system, as is so often the case,” said Matt Morales, NextWest COO. “Regardless of geography, number of employees, or number of locations, we adapt to the way your business operates.”

NextConnect is uniquely designed to take advantage of traditional telephone cables, eliminating the high costs of rewiring often associated with IP telephony systems. Working together with the NextLex extension box, NextConnect delivers affordable remote connectivity while requiring significantly less bandwidth than traditional IP.

Because the NextConnect adapter converts 30-channel format to IP, users get the full features and functionality of a PBX system with the cost savings of an IP system while using no more than 51Kbps of bandwidth for all 30 lines rather than the 20 – 120+ Kbps of bandwidth used by a single VoIP line in other solutions. QoS and security are maintained and DSL/cable connections, typical of small and medium sized business, provide ample bandwidth.

NextWest’s PCXi delivers a fully-integrated solution whose standard features are considered options on other systems and may be unavailable altogether on many VoIP systems. Standard features include auto attendant, automatic call distribution, caller ID, interactive voice response, fax on demand, voice and fax over IP, unified messaging, least cost routing, voicemail, conferencing, built-in music on hold and call and message screening.
