IT’S STILL YOUR SYSTEM, WE JUST PUT A BRAIN IN IT

IMPLANT BRAINBOX™ EXPAND TO ADD
LINES SIMPLY, EFFICIENTLY AND AFFORDABLY

You need more phone lines, but you don’t need a six-figure capital investment upgrade to get there. BrainBox™ Expand is our exclusive technology that augments your current system with VoIP, so you can add as many lines as you need, simply, efficiently and affordably.

PURPOSE

Expands the shelf life of existing legacy PBX capabilities with IP-enabling technologies. Enables customers to use existing PBX facilities and begin migrating to new IP technologies simultaneously without “throwing away” the old PBX. Ideal for properties undergoing renovation that want to minimize CAPEX while minimizing OPEX in the process. Enables resellers monthly recurring revenue streams and lowers end-customer capital expenditures and monthly operational costs.

DESCRIPTION

Provides a hybrid communications system that extends the shelf life of legacy PBX systems while utilizing new IP-based communications simultaneously.  Enables BrainBox™ IP PBX feature set including LCR and Bucket Routing for additional cost savings intelligence along with Black2Back™ Failover, Gate Routing ACD at 1 enterprise location.  This product includes engineering, integration and access to (1) SIP trunk, (1) utility DID line, unlimited incoming calls, domestic and international calls (additional CONUS and Intl. per-minute rates applied).
