SAN JOSE, Calif., Sept. 30 /PRNewswire/ -- eOn Communications Corporation, (NASDAQ: EONC), a leading provider of innovative telecommunications solutions, announced today the formal launch and general availability of our next generation communications platform the eConn IP-PBX. The eConn IP-PBX is a Voice over IP (VoIP) system that provides organizations with a highly scalable, feature-rich communications system designed to support 10 to 1,000 users. Utilizing commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) hardware and Linux CentOS, the system provides teleworking functionality, conferencing and collaboration, automatic call distribution, wireless capabilities, and more. The eConn supports over 500 telephony features - a key differentiator between the eConn and other competitive products. The system's strength and stability comes from an inherent telephony feature set ported from our awarding-winning Millennium® and eQueue® communications platforms. The eConn can cluster multiple systems and IP devices together over IP or TDM based infrastructures providing greater resiliency than a single server operating autonomously. Additionally, the eConn supports an IP-Q.SIG protocol to provide feature transparency and interoperability as an IP gateway for existing Millennium, eQueue and traditional PBX systems. Enterprises are looking at new ways to increase business revenues while reducing the cost of their communications solutions," said Robert Schnabl, COO of eOn. "It is this demand that led us to develop the eConn IP-PBX to provide businesses with features and flexible configurations that make communicating with customers and colleagues easier and less expensive, no matter whether they are located in a corporate HQ, a branch office or remote location half way around the world." Architecture System architecture is based on Host-based Media Processing (HMP), a new design model in telecommunications that involves the use of software solutions to perform voice processing functions, instead of dedicated Digital Signal Processors (DSP). HMP provides non-blocking communications between industry-standard Ethernet LAN/WAN connections and Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) stations and trunks.
