HANNOVER GERMANY – beroNet’s Telephony Appliance 2.0 receives first prize for Innovation in Telecommunication from Initiative Mittelstand, recognizing beroNet's attention to innovation in VoIP hardware.
“In 2011 we focused on providing easy to configure cloud managed VoIP hardware,” said Christian Richter, CEO at beroNet. “With the industry now joining us in the cloud, we decided to take it a step further by incorporating intelligent virtualization; enabling a single device to run what previously required five different hardware solutions.”
Designed with no moving parts and powered on less than 20 watts, the Appliance 2.0 combines an IP-PBX, VoIP Gateway, firewall, modem and fax server into a single device. This is done by using the beroNet Hypervisor; virtualization software based on the open source Xen Project. Using the Hypervisor it is possible to access the beroNet Market, a web repository of potential systems that can be downloaded and installed directly to the Appliance. Each virtual machine in the Hypervisor is also connected with the beroNet Cloud.
“By integrating the beroNet Cloud, our new Appliance can provide businesses with the full benefits of a cloud solution while maintaining the reliability of a local PBX system,” said Thomas Häger, co-founder at beroNet.
IT and telecommunication professionals can use the beroNet Cloud to monitor and manage each virtual machine installed on an Appliance 2.0. This allows customers the freedom of choosing the IP-PBX of their choice installed on local hardware while still receiving the benefits of a professionally supported cloud based IP-PBX system.
The Best in Innovation in Telecommunication prize from Initiative Mittelstand is the second award won by the Telephony Appliance 2.0. A beta version of the device won Best Telephony Appliance at the VoIP2Day 2015 exhibit in Spain.
“As part of VoIP2day’s Best Product jury, I gave very high marks to beroNet’s new Appliance. It’s a beautifully engineered and solid product, which simplifies the complexity of VoIP cards and their drivers by offering an Ethernet interface,” said Saúl Ibarra Corretgé, VoIP2Day 2015 Judge and SIP Guru. “This greatly helps the logical separation of equipment in a VoIP deployment: there is a PBX, and there is a gateway to the PSTN, even if they are physically in the same box.”
The beroNet Telephony Appliance 2.0 is available in three different models, each varying on the amount of memory and storage provided; ranging from 4GB of ram and 60 GB SSD to 16GB of ram and a 240GB SSD.
