Houghton College Selects Pingtel’s Open Source VoIP Solution
Pingtel Corp., the leading provider of SIP-based Enterprise Communications Systems (ECS) today announced that Houghton College has selected Pingtel’s SIPxchange™ ECS for campus-wide deployment. When completed, the system will provide 1,500 faculty, staff, and students with real-time open source VoIP communications services.
Don Haingray, Director of Technology Services at Houghton College said, “I love the approach that Pingtel has taken with the product. Unlike many other VoIP vendors, they developed their product completely around the IETF SIP standard. Their approach allows the end user to choose the phones and gateways that work best for them, as opposed to being locked-in to one brand. Also, Pingtel did not compromise on ease of use. While most SIP PBXs require the manual configuration of each phone, with Pingtel's solution it is all automatic: The “plug & play” management allows phones to discover and retrieve settings from the server and all configuration data is centrally backed up.”
