MISSISSAUGA, Ontario, Canada, August 18, 2011 - Phybridge Inc. today announced it has been certified by Siemens Enterprise Communications, a global leader in Unified Communications (UC) solutions, to integrate the Phybridge UniPhyer solution with their extensive OpenScape portfolio. The patent-pending Phybridge UniPhyer is the only networking switch in the world to deliver Ethernet and Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) over a single, traditional twisted pair telephone line with 1,200 ft reach. This allows customers to transform their existing, proven reliable voice infrastructure into an IP network with PoE, making it even simpler and more affordable to deploy Siemens Enterprise Communications award winning OpenScape UC solutions.
Certification means that Siemens Enterprise Communications customers can simplify the transition to IP telephony with a cost-effective deployment that helps eliminate many of the network readiness barriers and challenges associated with transitioning to IP telephony.
"By offering extremely reliable and scalable solutions that are easy to install and use, Siemens Enterprise Communications enables businesses of any size to seamlessly integrate communications with business processes, creating a more collaborative and productive enterprise regardless of building constraints," said John Croce, CEO at Phybridge. "Together we enable organizations of all sizes to enjoy the benefits of Siemens Enterprise Communications on a reliable converged network that handles both voice and data."
"Siemens Enterprise Communications is committed to offering customers the worldâ's most innovative communications technology with the highest return on investment," said Chris Hummel, CMO and President, North America, Siemens Enterprise Communications. "The Phybridge UniPhyer solution makes it easy for our customers to take a giant leap forward into modern communications without painful and expensive network re-engineering."
To complement the existing data network, the UniPhyer allows customers to centrally converge the data network while having a separate physical path for voice, reducing deployment complexities. With Phybridge and Siemens Enterprise Communications, industries that typically have a twisted pair telephone network such as education, healthcare, hospitality, and government can now take full advantage of world-class modern unified communications while leveraging their existing infrastructure and minimizing LAN costs.
Phybridge's mission is to bring practical innovations to market that provides customers and partners an easier way to deploy and manage their VoIP installs resulting in reduced total cost of ownership and enhanced return on investment. The Phybridge UniPhyer is the only networking switch globally delivering Ethernet and PoE over a single pair with reach of 1,200 feet. Customers are migrating to IP telephony quickly and easily by leveraging the existing voice infrastructure to create an optimized converged network.
