AVOXI VoIP Gateway Solutions
The AVOXI VoIP gateway solution is the preferred VoIP solution for larger customers with existing PBX and phone systems. Cloud-based technology enables efficient use of legacy systems while decreasing hardware investment and maintenance.
Using a gateway solution, businesses can leverage existing equipment. With the AVOXI VoIP gateway, there’s no need to purchase new hardware or equipment or replace your existing PBX. And just like SIP trunks, VoIP gateway solutions are scalable. You can use multiple gateways to accommodate an increased number of phone lines as your business grows. This allows your business to expand capabilities and to enjoy quality voice service at a fraction of the cost of traditional PBX setups.
VoIP Gateway Solution Benefits
How VoIP Gateway Solutions Work
It's simple. The solution consists of running Voice over IP through a Cisco IAD (Integrated Access Device) that is installed between your router and PBX. On inbound calls, the caller dials a toll-free number that routes through the Public Switched Telephony Network (PSTN) to the AVOXI Gateway and server.
There, all calls become data packets and route to your location over the Internet. The ethernet port on the Cisco IAD (Integrated Access Device) located on your premise has an assigned public IP address that is pre-registered in the AVOXI server(s).
At your location, the packets travel through to your router to your Ethernet Hub, and are then handed off to the IAD. The IAD then converts the data packets back into voice calls (either analog or digital, depending on your PBX) and hands the call off to the PBX. The PBX distributes the call to your phones as it normally does so that you retain all your current PBX functionality and your current phones.
On outbound calls from your location, the call is generated from your phone through the PBX and handed off to the IAD. The IAD converts the voice call into data packets and hands them off to the router. The router then sends the packets back to the AVOXI VoIP Gateway and server where the whole inbound process is played out in reverse.
Like all of AVOXI services, the quality for the VoIP gateway solution is outstanding and multiple redundancies in our network ensure that our service is reliable. We back this with 24 X 7 customer support and provide all of our customers with password protected access to a secure web interface where they can see all of their CDRs (Call Detail Records).
VoIP Gateways and VPN Solutions
Frequently paired with VoIP gateway services, VPN solutions enable your business to safely and securely route call data. This is especially important for businesses that need to communicate sensitive information between multi-office locations.
The use of a VPN in conjunction with a VoIP gateway also minimizes bandwidth usage. In fact, using VoIP service with a VPN solution can also increase call quality.
